      The best private, customized tours & experiences with locals

      We tailor all our travel experiences to your interests. On our custom tours with friendly local guides in major cities across the world, you’ll discover the soul of a city with someone who can show you its attractions beyond the famous landmarks. A balance between highlights and hidden gems, our customized tours seek out a city’s authenticity and celebrate the local way of living. You’ll see the iconic sights – but you’ll also uncover the secret spots loved by locals: the unassuming restaurants that serve the best traditional cuisine, the cool, charismatic neighborhoods, and the hidden viewpoints that show the city from a different perspective.

      Perplexing maps, tangled public transport, and chalkboard menus scrawled in an unfamiliar language can’t hold you back when you have a local guide leading the way. On our custom tours, your local insider plays the role of GPS, guidebook, and Google Translate, so you’ll be able to experience any- and everything the city has to offer. From secret plazas in Italy to underground eateries in Japan, the sides of a city usually reserved for its residents open themselves up to you. Our custom tours allow a foreign city to become more than just another travel destination – it becomes a second home.

      Travel tailored to you

      We know that every traveler’s idea of the perfect trip is different. That’s why we take everything into account to plan your tour and give you plenty of unique experiences to choose from. Whether you have a full day, half a day, or just three hours, our custom tours squeeze in as many of the city’s attractions as possible. From must-see tours exploring iconic landmarks to food tours uncovering a city’s finest traditional cuisine (and experiences that veer starkly off the tourist trail), you’ll find the custom tours that pique your interest and satisfy your curiosity.

      We don’t just tailor our custom tours to suit your interests; we pair you with a local guide who thinks like you. Our local insiders come from all ages, backgrounds, and perspectives. They’re journalists, artists, comedians, teachers, and company execs. Some of them are food-lovers with a finger on the pulse of their city’s restaurant scene; others are history buffs who can share fascinating stories of their city’s past. One thing all our hosts have in common is that they love their homes and are passionate about sharing its secrets and attractions with travelers like you.

        Our 6-hour tour with Garbriel was incredible. This young man spoke perfect English and had a great knowledge of the sites we visited. We started this tour as "unscripted" with visiting the giant flower market - a site to be seen for sure, followed by a breakfast at a local food court. The tour was perfect, and we were able to experience "Mexico" as we wanted. I would recommend this tour highly and also our guide Gabriel.

        Very nice tour. Enjoyed an overview of Sapporo - loved the local perspective. Loved starting, with the ski slope views over the city. Had a lovely mix of activities.

        Daniel (Matoso) did a great job of tailoring the tour to our requirements. He drove us to different parts of the city. We then parked and he led us to various sites while providing information along the way. He spent an hour more with us than what was scheduled.

        We had Taibi as our guide during our trip to Kyoto last January and we had an amazing experience! We booked our trip less than 12 hours before the appointment time and Taibi was able to accommodate us nonetheless and was able to plan a full day itinerary very well. He knew all the local gems that we wouldn't have otherwise found if we were by ourselves. Also, although the trip was a bit slower paced due to old parents, Taibi never once rushed us, and he accommodated our pace even if he had to extend beyond the 8-hour tour we booked. We're lucky to have had him as our guide and would recommend him to all groups looking for a local Kyoto experience!
