Subject: Re: What do you like/dislike about guided tours?

This thread has brought up a couple questions for me: Is there any way to tell in advance if a certain museum/park has quality tour guides? And, what is that others (you) like or dislike about guided indoor or outdoor tours you attend?

My hubby and my beef is with guides who don't know either group management (don't wait until everyone can hear for example) or lack of knowledge in the subject area generally. Or just can't relate to us tourists. I would love to hear your stories!
