When you travel to a new place, there are so many things to do and see in a short period. Although most of the information is available on the Internet, it is always a hard decision where to start. In fact, without a private tour guide you can easily waste time or get lost as you explore a city on your own that you’re not familiar with.

You might be wondering why I think that hiring a private tour guide is the solution to this problem. Let’s take a look some of the major benefits and learn why it is such a good idea.

Major benefits of hiring a private tour guide

Save Time

Keep in mind that when you’re on vacation, every minute counts. With a private tour guide there is no wasted time. A private tour guide always knows the best hours to visit attractions, when prices are best, which places you can skip and any number of tricks and tactics that will help you get the most out of travel to a heavily visited location.

Save Money

A private tour guide can save you money by avoiding tourist traps and can take you to destinations known only to the locals.

Discover Unique Places

A private tour guide can take you to places that you would never know about. You can experience cool stops that you might not have found on your own. Even if you spend hours searching the Internet or reading guide books. A good guide can tell you all the best places frequented by the locals and how to experience your trip as a true insider.

Get Great Tips about Where to Eat and Drink

A private tour guide will also be able to offer advice on special restaurants according to your needs. This way you can skip the crowded spots and tourist traps where all the rest of the tourists in town eat. Plus you can go and eat to local cafés and restaurants where you can learn about the local food culture as well.

Insider Knowledge

Most private tour guides are born and grew up in the area, so they know the streets and neighborhoods like the backs of their hands. This insider knowledge of the city makes them worth every Euro (or Hungarian Forint) you spend hiring them.


A private tour guide provides customized tours that tailor your needs, budget and time frame.
