Tour managers in Poland

tour managers PolandWe are often asked about the difference between a tour guide and a tour manager. The answer is very easy: a tour guide's main task is to provide the tourist party with cultural and historical information about their destination. Most tour guides were born in the city they are working in - or at least they have been living there for a long time. What's more, in most countries, tour guides have to pass complicated exams and have solid specialized knowledge. Compared to a tour guide's, a tour manager's work is no easier one, but it is much different: tour managers travel with a tourist party so as to make sure their journey or sightseeing tour is taking place smoothly. He assumes the technical and administrative aspects of the travel - airport check-in, hotel check-in, settling appointments with the bus driver and the tour guide, etc. Most of the time, the tour manager travels with the group from the beginning to the end of their trip and he / she speaks both the tourist party's languages and the language (s) spoken in the region (s) or country / countries they are visiting.

The tour operator City Tours Poland is a subsidiary company of tour operator City Tours and enables its customers to hire experimented, highly-competent tour managers for transfers and sightseeing tours all over Poland or for bus trips anywhere in Europe. This service includes the following kinds of transportation services in Wroclaw, Krakow, Warsaw, Gdansk, Poznan, or anywhere in Poland:

  • Bus transfers: a tour manager can be decisive for the success of a bus transfer. Especially when not all passengers get in and out in the same time - then it is important to count the number of passengers already there. During airport transfers, especially for a transfer from the airport, the tour manager is in charge of welcoming every passenger, gathering them and bringing them to the right bus or minibus.
  • Bus excursions: whoever wants to make sure that a bus excursion takes place smoothly should hire a professional tour manager in addition to the tour guide. This way, the tour guide can focus on presenting the sights whereas the tour manager takes care of all technical aspects such as time management, appointments, individual needs, etc.
  • Bus trips: whereas during an excursion, booking a tour manager is only recommended, during a coach travel it is compulsory. A tourist party without a tour guide will lead to serious stress for the bus driver - and both security and travel success will suffer from it. What's more, the passengers are always more satisfied with their travel when tour managers are there to make sure all parts of the programme take place as planned. Who else would make sure that the tourist party gets exactly the group menu they ordered, or that each traveller gets the right room category in their group accommodation?
