Top reasons why tourists don’t take tours

Tourists prefer flexibility and freedom. They don’t want to have to show up at a fixed time and place and follow the tour. Also, if the tour is not in their native language or within their budget, they might not be able to take a tour. Tourists are also afraid of large crowds and using things like unhygienic audio guide systems because it can increase their risk of Covid-19.

Tourists are interested in learning more about your destination, but they prefer to explore independently.

The good news is that SmartGuide helps you better serve more tourists at your attraction and make tours a more attractive option.
