When you come with us, you can rest assured that you are in the hands of PASSIONATE LOCAL TOUR LEADERS.

When we design a tour for you..

  • What comes first is how we can share with you the gift that has been passed down from generation to generation in  our families, the gift of hospitality and generosity towards visitors.
  • Second, We want a good mix of laughs, great food, fun history facts, beautiful places for  us to take your photos.
  • Third, how we can make a positive impact on our community through our tours or through the revenue from them.
  • Forth, revenue, hey after all this is how not only we enjoy life, and how we provide to our families, but also this is how we are able to sponsor or donate to local charities. 😀
