We want to make sure our experiences are tailored according to your needs and interests and that after the experience you feel more knowledgeable about the city and more confident to explore it on your own.

My private tour with Michael was quite good. He’s very thoughtful of the wants of his clients and provides a custom tour that includes both touristy and local highlights. His knowledge of great food and drink spots is also a plus. Highly recommended!
