BENEFITS OF HAVING PRIVATE GUIDES AND DRIVERS
Your private guides and drivers are always locals, born and raised in the region you are visiting. They are so happy you are vacationing there and are eager to share their insider knowledge with you.
Private experiences allow for… flexibility, customization, and saving a ton of time entering the main attractions. Your private guides always have skip-the-line access. And, they will take you to off-the-beaten-path places you would have never found on your own.
You can specify pick up times and length of tours. For example, if you’re not really into art but feel you need to see the Mona Lisa on your next trip to Paris… our guide will whisk you right in (avoiding the 2 hour queue), and give you the highlights tour of the Louvre. In two hours you’ll be done and onto other activities.
Two ways to get the most out of your drivers and guides…
LEARN FROM THEM – they want to share all about the traditions and customs of their region. However, they don’t know what you’re interested in unless you open up to them. So the best advice I can give you is to talk (a lot) to your guides and drivers. Ask them anything you’re interested in knowing… local foods, an authentic restaurant, their favorite wine, or the history of their hometown. Whatever it is you’re interested in learning about just let them know, they will be happy to share.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR DAY – All our day excursions have a detailed itinerary but you can always modify with your guide / driver. They are yours for the day and every minute should be spent doing what you love most. For example, if you only want to spend a specific amount of time at a museum and use the rest of the time with your guide enjoying a coffee at a local spot, learning more about the region, let them know and they’d be happy to accommodate you.
Your drivers and guides are yours for the duration of the tour so talk to them at the beginning of your day to review the itinerary and your options.
