The narration of a geopark is usually given in the form of a handbook for geopark guides. It contains scripts and information about the geological, ecological and cultural elements of the geopark, including scripts for indoor (e.g., the museum) and outdoor (e.g., along the routes and at the geosites) environments. The information and data must be accurate and cover all aspects of the geopark, and they should be delivered in an interesting and easily understandable form. The writing of the narration can be based on a set of interpretive materials that introduce different aspects of the geopark but can be modified to suit the different backgrounds and requirements of different types of tourists and visitors.
