How to be a great localyokl
- Take your guests off the usual tourist route. Being a localyokl is all about unique experiences that tourists would not be able to get with traditional tourist providers.
- Make it fun! Your guest is here to have a fantastic time, so go the extra mile to make their experience memorable. The more they love the experience the more bucks you’ll make!
- Sweat the small stuff – little things make such a difference. Throw in a freebie like some cold water, or have sunscreen and spare hats on hand. Or you might want to surprise your guest with a spontaneous offer like stopping to watch the sunset over the ranges. If you sweat the small stuff your guest will appreciate it and recommend you to others.
