Our Story


Between summer of 2015 to 2017, two friends traveled to 15+ countries across Europe, Middle we noticed that many travelers were clueless without a guide – relying on reviews written on travel websites.

While backpackers experienced difficulties finding the right adventures to meet their interests, many solo travelers, as well as traveling families missed out on a true traveling experience.

A true traveling experience in our view is the one that helps you live and experience the culture, immerse in local traditions, taste the local cuisine, and most importantly make life-long connections with the locals.
