  2. Showcasing products or services: as a tour host, you can show off your products or services in a tangible way. This can be particularly effective for businesses offering unique or locally made products, giving participants a hands-on experience with what you have to offer.
  3. Educational experience: providing demonstrations or behind-the-scenes access during the tour can enhance educational value for participants. This can help establish your operation as a voice of authority in your niche.
