Why Red Rocks Rwanda invests in the skills of local tour guides
A tour guide, as the name suggests, is a person who not only guides the tourists but also provides them pertinent information concerning the place they’re visiting. At Red Rocks Rwanda Intercultural Exchange Center, we believe that our tour guides must be able to interpret the natural and cultural heritage of the places our visitors intend to visit, and possess some particular qualification normally issued or recognized by the appropriate authority.
That’s why we continue to invest in the knowledge and skills of our tour guides, since we believe they’re a critical link between the tourists and the place. It’s due to this that Red Rocks continues to invest in this useful resource.
Red Rocks Volunteer Guides is another initiative by the popular Musanze based campsite to get on board the locals who would like to become professional tour guides, though they’re unable to do so due to different factors like financial constraints among others. It’s also an initiative to help those who want to improve their English and overall communication skills.
Red Rocks have been a sanctuary for many local tour guides, and we are happy that they have not only tremendously improved their English communication skills but also their tour guiding skills.
It is important for our guides to be thoroughly knowledgeable about the regions, cities and countries they work. Furthermore, it’s their responsibility to help travellers understand the culture of the region and of its inhabitants. They have to market and promote the natural and cultural heritage, and at the same time impress on our visitors the significance of the place they’re visiting.
That’s why Red Rocks Rwanda is committed to have trained local tour guides that will show our visitors the amazing beauty of the country, in a language they’re able to understand.
Therefore, having a local tour guide from Red Rocks Volunteer guide comes as a great support for the outing programs which we have here. Our core mission is to have the best experience when you visit Red Rocks Rwanda, and having trained, skillful, and experienced tour guides is just part of that mission.
