Our guides' personalities are reflected greatly in their profile. For that reason, take into account that their way of communicating may differ between one another. That being said, this aspect is TOMODACHI'S GUIDE utmost pride.
Here is a typical flow of a conversation that occurs between both guests and guides. We want you to always prioritize your own and guide's comfort so do not feel obligated to follow this suggestion of ours. Simply, choose a method that fits you best.
[Decide What to Do for the Day]
Once you have decided on a plan and guide which interests you from the draft plans you have received, you can start exchanging messages in the message thread. You can may continue planning the trip based on the questions the guest answered before about the trip, but it would probably be best to check the answers and expectations of the guest one more time.
After saying your hellos, take a liking to your guide, and successfully agree on a price, start establishing the intricate details for the day; Like where to meet? when to meet? how to keep in contact? or even where to finish? These are small yet important details that both parties have to fully grasp to ensure a great trip.
For example, set the meeting time and place at 10:30 in front of Shibuya's famous Hachiko statue. Once you got that out of the way, all you have to do is to simply have a blast. Always remember that a thorough conversation with a guide is the key to a successful trip!
