For many travellers, venturing to a new city or country can be quite daunting. Not knowing where to go, what to do, or how you’re going to get there. Finding a tour or experience and booking a random guide can be especially risky — What are their credentials? Are they good at guiding? Will they take you to interesting places? Will you get along with them? As if travelling doesn’t bring enough stresses, the last thing you really want to worry about is the person showing you around.
