When we look back on our most memorable travel experiences, they're connected by one common thread: the people. Our friends in the countries we've traveled to have given us a profound understanding of their city's spirit and soul. Seeing a city through a local lens makes it so much more than a destination; it becomes a second home. These intimate connections with people and places around the world are what we want to replicate for you with our diverse network of incredible hosts from all ages and backgrounds. Between them, we'll find your perfect match – consider us your friend in the city.
We booked the 2 hour walking guide. We were very flexible with what the guide has planned for us. If you are looking for an experience through Kyoto through the eyes of a local, then this is the tour to book. In 2 hours, our guide managed to squeeze in Kyoto Tower view and explained how to use the subway and bus. So this is a must for first-timers in Kyoto. We walked through the Nishiki market and Shinkyogoku. By far the best tour guide. Thank you Taibi
When we met, my guide offered essentially three different options based upon my answers to the questionnaire. We also discussed my interests and plans while in Berlin. After selecting the second option, my guide further customized the itinerary to prevent overlap with other tours I had planned. All this led to a solid private tour experience. Would definitely recommend.
To say that this tour was great only would be an understatement. The way that I described the experience to Giwon was that it was like finally getting the chance to visit a friend who you’ve been promising to visit. She was extremely accommodating and made the entire experience great for us from start to finish. She took us to all the great spots and added a few hidden gems. We laughed most of the night, and couldn’t help but offer to keep in touch, given how well everything went. Giwon is simply amazing and my recommended guide.
