Here are a list of activities you can choose or use for inspirtion:

1. Speed Dating

Choose between 5 and 10 questions from this list(link to the list of questions from Vogue’s 73 questions) and give them to randomly paired guests. These ice-breaker questions can spark lively conversations between the guests. Don’t like the questions on the list? Feel free to add your own! Let each dating pair ask each other the questions for between 5 - 10 minutes.

2. Plan a Picnic

Whether you’re taking your tour to a park or an open meadow, put down blankets for each guest pair. You may bring your personal blankets or tell guests to bring their own. In your tour profile ask each guest to bring a snack or beverage and randomly pair them. Rotate the pairings every 5 to 10 minutes. Afterwards ask guests to provide feedback on the website. Positive feedback will increase the attractiveness of your future tours.
