A good tour guide will introduce herself, welcome you, and give you an introduction of what to expect on the tour.

The best guides spend the tour getting to know the guests on the tour that day and not in an intrusive way but in a way that shows genuine interest. It could be during the car ride, over lunch/drinks, or as you walk from site to site.
A good tour guide will show you all the sites on the itinerary.
A great tour guide will not only ensure you see what’s promised, she will modify the itinerary to ensure you see the sites when there are the least amount of crowds to maximize your enjoyment.

A good tour guide will conclude the tour with closing remarks, thank you for coming on the trip, and gently remind you about tips – for the driver, of course (a good tour guide won’t pressure you into tipping her personally).
A great tour guide will thank you for your visit and welcome you back. She will offer recommendations for other activities you should consider during your visit. She may invite you to dinner or to some other “local” event going on during your stay.
