      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.

        Marisol was very helpful and attentive to our questions and had a very thorough knowledge of the architecture and Mexican heritage.

        With only a small window to fill with a tour, we chose one that we could customize. It was fabulous. Dario was our guide for a three-hour walking tour. He covered everything we had on our list. He was knowledgeable, professional, and prepared.

        Five stars for Dario or tour guide in June of 2022. My daughter and I were in Naples for a wedding and, although limited, we did have some time for sightseeing. In my search to fill a half day, I came across the opportunity to "customize" a tour that would take about three hours. We knew we wanted to experience a few shopping areas but mainly wanted to see several of the cathedrals, get a good cup of coffee, experience some of the architecture and infrastructure, and art that Naples is known for as well as the history of this famous city. Dario was amazing! Even though it was a walking tour, we covered a lot of ground but never felt rushed. He was a wealth of knowledge, extremely professional, and prepared.
