Walking Tour Survey

Fellow Travelers,

As the summer approaches, I am seriously thinking about offering walking tours of my beautiful community. I would be grateful if you could help me by answering a few questions. I am not advertising anything or gathering any personal information.

Here is a link to a survey I have created:

Thank you so much!

Done, just an aside, I think the type of tour very much depends on the venue & in many cities (like Paris for instance) there are many walking tours that are 'do it yourself', which I have done more of, than a guided tour. If you are offering a guided tour, I think it important that you have the ability to expose your patrons to something they are not likely or unable to see w/out the tour. Be it hidden gardens, a kitchen or winery tour, private access to a museum or whatever. Just my thoughts.

I see this is your first post.

I looked at your survey and I thought it was impossible to answer without having a specific location in mind.

The maximum distance you offer is 2.5 miles, but I walk farther than that every day.

The maximum time you offer is 2 hours, but I take much longer independent walking tours than that when I'm in San Francisco, New York, Rome, etc.

I agree. The length of tour (in miles) would depend on the terrain.

Check out this website for an example of tour types. Their price is right too - free, plus tip.
