I think this is one of the coolest tours out there! How many times in your life are you going to meet someone is the thick of the film industry? Jose has directed and acted in Hollywood and has amazing stories to tell about what he's seen and experienced. He can share stories about the historical sites in LA while also giving his first hand experience. Don't get stuck on those boring tour buses, meet someone from Hollywood in person instead.

Katherine has a great love for literature and the famous writers that graced Rome. Get a different side of Rome and see where these famous writers hung out and became inspired with a knowledgeable and cool guide!

Discover the "hill of poetry" and beautiful churches on this walking tour with Esther. She welcomes families too! Avoid the long lines and let Esther lead you to peaceful and gorgeous sites.

Esther knows all the cool ins and outs of Rome. She'll take you to secret ancient spots that very few people know about. Since she's a history buff she'll explain the places she takes you in a lively way that only someone that loves history could do!

Juliann L. for Rione Monti Walking Tour

If you want a guide that is energetic and knowledgeable then Esther is the perfect fit! She has experience with giving tours but strays away from the boring group tours on buses. She would much rather walk through the ancient ruins and explore.

I cannot vouch enough for Chiara. She loves to make the experience of planning a wedding a memorable one. She has filtered through designers, caterers, and planners and has come up with the best team to help you plan your perfect day. What better place to get married than in bella Roma?!

Bilal loves music and nightlife in Istanbul. Don't go to the touristy spots, go where locals go to hang out and have fun! There's a great alternative music scene in Istanbul that only someone like Bilal can navigate you through. He's a fun guide with a go with the flow personality!

Juliann L.

Bilal has passion for his city and therefore knows the ideal places to eat, drink, and listen to traditional music. As a local he's weeded out the touristy places from the authentic and quality places. Follow him and you'll be in good company!

Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, finding the best place to go in a country you're not familiar with can be very difficult. Merve can show you where and what the Turkish eat for breakfast.

Juliann L.

Istanbul merchants can be very sweet talking and can convincingly persuade you to over buy. Having a native really helps when bargaining and getting the best price. So not only will shopping with Merve be fun, but it will also save you money!

Juliann L.

The European side of Istanbul can get touristy so it's best to go with someone like Merve who can show you cool spots and share the stories behind them.

Juliann L.

Hookah is always fun to do, but even more fun sitting with locals and people watching. Merve knows places that aren't bogged down with tourists and are great to relax and soak in the sites.

Juliann L.

Merve has a lot of insight into the different sides of Istanbul. She is not only a native of Istanbul, but also loves her city. She'll show you great spots to get the best pictures and views!

Juliann L. for Istanbul Nightlife Tour

If you want a good time Erkan is definitely the person to show you one! Since he's a university student he knows all the good hot spots that only local university students would know. Mingle with nightlife crowd and meet new people while sampling Turkish liqueur and singing and dancing the night away!

Deniz has a lively personality and very art-centric interests. If you love art she is your guide! As a native of Istanbul, she has great knowledge of the back stories behind the different historical sites and art displays. She may even show you some of her cool art pieces!

Juliann L. for Tour the Rooftop Gardens

The tour was a great way to see the city from another perspective. As a native San Franciscan, I've passed by these buildings my whole life without even realizing they had gardens on the roof! Marilyn also knew great historical facts about the city and had great little stories that made me look at downtown in a completely different way. She's a very pleasant guide and knows her stuff!

The Rooftop Gardens tour was done on a cold crisp day in January. We saw the best rooftops in downtown SF as well as many open space parks. Juliann and her associate were enthusiastic about the many new treasures they discovered. This made it fun for me too!
