If, for any reason, your complaint cannot be resolved by the tour guide, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We take all feedback seriously and aim to handle it professionally. Our priority is to ensure that everyone has a fantastic experience with us. Your satisfaction is important to us, and we’ll do our best to address your concerns promptly.

How are your private tours priced?

Our private tours are priced based on the duration of the tour. You pay a flat rate per hour, which means the cost remains the same regardless of the number of people in your group.

How can I pay for the tour?

For online bookings, we offer secure payment options through Stripe, allowing you to pay conveniently with your credit card.

Who will be our private guide?

Rest assured, your guide will also have your name and cellphone number for smooth communication and a personalized experience throughout the tour. 

Do we tip our guide?

Our guides are compensated fairly for their time and excellent service. Tipping is not mandatory. However, if you feel that your guide has provided exceptional service and you wish to express your appreciation, leaving a gratuity is always a thoughtful way to say “Thank you.” We welcome guests from diverse cultures, where tipping customs may vary, so the decision to give gratuity or not is entirely up to our guests.
