Some benefits of hiring a local guide!
1. You're dealing directly with a local expert.
2. The guide you're dealing with also the One guiding you.
3. That is the Guide who understand all your needs through communication exchange.
4. Touring with the local guide you choose is more flexible with Time, Itinerary as He/She can make it change immediately instead of asking someone from the Travel Agent.
