1. Review our hosting standards
It’s important you don’t think of yourself as a tour guide. You’re a host who’s helping travelers experience a city in a meaningful way.
Make sure you meet these qualities before you start hosting:
I’m deeply knowledgeable about my subject or skilled at my activity, and can demonstrate this to guests.
I’m truly passionate about hosting and meeting people. I want to have authentic interactions with guests, not just transactional ones.
I can anticipate my guest’s needs and feelings. I keep in mind that each group I host will have varying levels of familiarity with my subject.
