THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ROLE OF A TOURIST GUIDE IN TOURIST DESTINATION DEVELOPMENT by ANAGO JAMES AKEEM OSHO


        “The name, history and importance of a Tourist Destination could sell itself, but it takes the Tourist Guide to sell it well”. Anago James Akeem Osho.

            This statement describes the importance of a Tourist Guide in the marketing and promotion of a Tourist Destination. It should be noted that the relationship between a Tourist Guide, Tourist and Tourist Destination should be intimate, educational, emotional and spiritual. The intimacy is the relationship while the spiritual is the passion. The information in this work is basically gathered through my years of experience as a professional Tourist Guide.
