Have you ever thought about being a tour guide on an escorted tour? Do you believe you have what it takes to lead a group of set-in-their-ways adults, kids who can get bored at the mere blink of an eyelash? If the answer is "you must be mad, no", I must say I expected that, but if you smiled and got excited at the thought of leading your eager-to-know group of roving visitors, who are curious, asks all the right questions and are eager to know what you know and about what happened at this place at that moment in history, then to you I ask, "do you enjoy what you do, and care to share your experiences as a tour guide with us?"
