Hi, Marcus here!
The YVR school program, which takes grade 5 classes on a fact-filled field trip around the airport, started this week.
As tour guides we have had to memorize scripts, facts and figures. We got here two weeks ago without knowing a thing about the airport. Luckily, with the assistance of the amazing communications team at YVR, all three of us have touched the ground running. I am happy and proud to say that my partners and I have given our first set of tours without skipping a beat.
The classes that we have guided through the airport have been more than enthusiastic. We have had question after question pour in. I even had one child who was an airport keener and knew all the statistics before I even spouted them out.
My favorite part of being a tour guide has been the ability to create smiling faces, while introducing the children to important information.
From your tour guides here at YVR,thank for coming out and we can't wait to meet the rest of you.
