      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.

        Kokoro’s boundless energy, endless knowledge and experience and overall enthusiasm for showing us Kyoto made for an unforgettable day! The highlight was his taking us to Tojiin Temple, which is a bit off the beaten path…we had the place to ourselves! Thanks for an amazing day.

        Feruza figured out how to make it possible for us to visit Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Grand Market, the spice market, take a sunset cruise, and a stroll through the modern district all in one day! She kept us informed with important facts regarding each historical monument we visited. We would highly recommend taking a tour with her on your next trip to Istanbul!

        Jill was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. She was cognizant of our needs and adapted the trip to the time and restrictions we requested. Very pleasant and gracious. We would highly recommend her as a guide for any future walking trips.

        She brought us a picnic snack, answered all our questions, had an incredible knowledge of the literary, architecture, culture, history, knew all the fun places both out of the way and the places every tourist wants to see. We travel a lot and she was the best we’ve had for a tour person.
