Sharing your likes and dislikes with your tour guide will guide them into customizing a perfect tour just for you.       

2.Preparation for weather changes

The weather changes most of the time. It might start out sunny but later in the day changes to being too windy or rainy.

5.New experiences

Trying something new is an amazing opportunity to create memories. When in a foreign place, make an effort to get familiar with the culture. Your tour guide might even accompany you to places and share their most popular food and drinks. Visit cultural regions and try integrating with the locals.

7.Interact freely

Your private tour guide has advanced knowledge on the region you are visiting. You are allowed to ask as many questions as you wish to and engage in an unending conversation. The tour guide also gets to enjoy holding informal conversations rather than having to ramble to a passive audience for a long time. Flowing conversations make the learning more natural and enjoyable.

8.Get recommendations for places to visit

Private tour guide comes with the benefit of getting to inquire from your tour guides on the best places to visit. When you get comfortable to walk around town alone, you can visit some of the great shops, restaurants, and places of entertainment suggested to you.
