To pass moderation tours should comply with the following requirements
The duration of a standard tour is 1.5–2.5 hours (may be more in some cases).
The optimal length of the route depending on the tour type:
Walking tour: 4–5 km
Bike tour: 10–15 km
Car tour: 40–50 km
Presence of precise directions on how to get from one stop of the tour to another, noticeable objects added (colorful building, a bridge to cross, unusual sculpture). This will help tourists understand where to go.
An informal style of communication – no cold facts or too many dates, the narrative is emotional, with unusual stories, myths, and legends.
An audio should be recorded for each Step of the tour.
Quizzes in quest-tours should be allocated evenly – you can add quiz questions every 3-4 steps. Don't forget that the quizzes are used for exploring the surroundings, not for checking the tourists' knowledge.
❌ Checking knowledge: Do you remember in which year the Great Fire of London was? ❌ Pointless tasks: To continue, look closely at the building once again, count the round-shaped windows and type the number. ❌ Subjective opinion: Did you enjoy the tour? Did you find the sculpture?
✔️ There is a mystical legend about the family coat of arms of the first owners of this palace. You will hear it in the next Step. Now find the coat of arms on the building and answer the question: what animal is depicted on it? ✔️ You’ve come to an unusual monument. Examine it closely and guess the profession of this person. ✔️ Take a look at the building’s facade. There are various objects and animals depicted on it, and all of them have a certain meaning. Which object symbolizes the main activity of the company located in the building?
