Why Hire a Personal Guide
Hiring a personal tour guide, one might think it is for the
wealthy, but are pleasantly surprised to find someone to answer their every
question and attend to each detail of their visit, is not only for the
wealthy. Hiring a guide, is a smart way of enjoying your
travel with an economical guide to satisfy your travel experience
and your pocket.

the experience of choosing to hire a guide, to see and understand as much as
possible about the place they want to visit.

search of value and an authentic, memorable experience, is worth having a
personal guide, which tends to their needs.
These are usually not the type of tours in which 50 people board a
bus for the day to quickly drive by 12 top attractions. Personalized tours that

with stops for pictures, drinks to cool down and places for a bite to eat.
Guides are often paid by the hour.

experience to be remembered for a lifetime.

daunting traffic rush in a city is also very valuable. For time is saved, while
you see things and places that you otherwise could not find, while there is no
getting lost and making your trip a hassle free experience, is worth all its
