Every hotel seeking to increase its sales and popularity must have a tour desk that is fully equipped and functional and that is well staffed. The tour desk needs to have information on all the tour agencies within reach and their contacts. This information can be availed on brochures displayed at the tour desk. The desk should also ensure that they have a program of the available tours and their timing in the event that the guests desire to go on a tour; they need to have sufficient choices to select from.

Another important resource on the tour desk is the human resource. The desk should be staffed with qualified well informed personnel who can efficiently help the guests to know the local tour agencies. The staff should also have the capacity to help the guests make their decision of which tour to take depending on their tastes and preferences. The staff also connects the different guests with the tour agencies. In most high end hotels, agents from the tour agencies are allowed to have their own desk under the tour desk to provide the needed assistance and information.
