It’s no secret that most teachers who travel abroad with us on a history trip recommend booking a History Tour Guide.
But what benefit do they have to students’ learning? We asked a group of students who have recently travelled to the Western Front what they thought of their tour guide…
“He thoroughly explained everything when I asked questions, and he always had new facts to tell us.”
“Whilst we were on the coach he pointed out places related to the war, like monuments and cemeteries. He also showed us documentaries and movies about the First World War.”
“They were helpful and explained what was happening at every location.”
“He was really funny and went out his way to answer my questions.”
“He was very nice and very helpful. Making him there made the trip better.”
