Tours and trails

Imagine exploring a city on a walking trail with a knowledgeable pal, someone who can take you off the beaten track to discover a more quirky side of town. A guided tour can show you the best place to pick up a local delicacy, the right time to avoid the crowds, and the quickest or most scenic route to where you want to go. They tell you when to look up and gaze at something wondrous.

Whether you prefer an electronic audio version, a group tour or an individual local enthusiast, informative and entertaining tour guides can be engaged in all our towns, at major sites, and throughout the countryside for a fascinating walking tour.
