Step 1: Plan every detail Plan every detail -- from the time your guests arrive to the time they leave. Write and distribute a clear itinerary so everyone knows what to expect. Tip Make room for spur-of-the-moment events and give your tour group options so they can participate in the adventure. Step 2: Talk to your group Talk to your group to discover their interests, likes, and dislikes to tailor the cultural tour to their tastes. Step 3: Strive for balance Strive for balance between tourist traps and popular sights and places off the beaten path or rarely seen sights. Step 4: Do your homework Immerse yourself in the culture and history of the area. Be able to impress your tour group with facts, dates, and anecdotal or historical stories. Tip Learn the language and talk to the locals to get tips on the best places to visit. Step 5: Be prepared Be prepared in case things go awry. Have alternate plans and always be prepared for weather-related inconveniences. Sometimes, the best memories are created from the unexpected. Step 6: Pack a survival kit Keep a survival kit with first-aid and weather-related items with you at all times. Your hard work and preparation will make each trip a vacation to remember.
