When looking for a trip, this is what you should be looking for:

  • Ability to completely customize an itinerary.  Personalized service is key.
  • Good command of spoken English and local language.
  • Affordable price.
  • Personal connections with certain tribes to get you “inside access” that most large tour company don’t have.

  • Will make content of my talk close to the audience’s background. Translate using local language to English Share contextual stories and interesting information: open to talk to tourists and give them interesting stories of the destination, especially those related to their traditional cultures or natural environment by keeping it simple, clear, short and straight to the information needs.
  • I will tell you reliable information: “Getting information is simple but making sure is difficult” I should have to use validated sources of information to address the intended need of tourists. Do not exaggerate the story.
  • Ability to present information clearly, effectively and persuasively with proven abilities to facilitate and encourage open communication to strive for effective communication;

  • Commitment to my community and personal connection to the tribes, insights Ethiopia.
  • Good reputation for village: a good image of the local people and destination will be created when people together provide good services in the destination. Tourists will perceive reputation of a village when they experience a single service as well as hospitality, safety and security in the destination as a whole.

4. I have a social conscience and will be donating a significant amount to the orphans.

  • Give back  I will spend 20% from earnings to the community and 7 vulnerable children’s of those who are actually getting my support.
  • Secured job: when a destination can maintain a tourist market, it can secure employment for local people. When a single person or local business can help destination maintain its customers, it generally requires local people to work together and provide good services and hospitality to the customer in the destination.
