TAM: private group tours
Docents often tell me about how they were told to do a group tour of a special exhibition (for example), and that the group actually wanted to see the whole museum.
This is a common scenario that I suspect is related to the fact that the person organizing the tour with Kathy, often isn't on the tour or is making decisions for the tour group without consulting them.
I would recommend that when you do a private group tour, that you explain to the group that you were told to do a certain type of tour, but also ask them if this is what they want to do. It's up to you to read your audience.
Thanks for your time!
