What to expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours of booking by email to find out more about your personality and tastes, as well as any dietary requirements so we can assign a like-minded Local Host who will create a bespoke experience for you. 

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
