Interpretation and Tour Leadership: Principles and Practices of Tour Guiding is a complete manual to tour guiding that is based on the authors’ first-hand experience of training more than 4500 tour guides. With a solid theoretical base, it applies the theory to the practice with a hands-on focus and guides the reader through the key roles and responsibilities of a tour guide.

It tackles a diverse range of issues and areas, such as:
  • interpretation techniques and types;
  • responsible tourism and ethics;
  • leading visitors in a (post) Covid scenario;
  • best practice ‘do’s and don’t’s;
  • setting up a tour guiding business.

Packed with real-life international examples, each chapter follows a thorough pedagogic structure which includes features such as learning objectives, key terms, checklists, tips, discussion questions and activities, and further reading.

Interpretation and Tour Leadership: Principles and Practices of Tour Guiding is an essential toolkit for all students and practitioners looking to understand more about this essential part of the tourism industry.
