Travellers sometimes ask us what we think are the most romantic destinations: they might be planning to propose, or celebrating a special wedding anniversary. The honest answer is that anywhere can feel romantic if you’re in love – but sometimes an exotic locale provides the perfect spark to re-kindle a sputtering flame.
Today, a sample of ToursByLocals experiences around the world guaranteed to light the fires of romance! (Just ask the travellers who have taken these tours!)

How can you go wrong with a sunrise balloon ride over a spectacular landscape? Cappadocia’s otherworldly scenery is a wonder to behold, and a sky dotted with rainbow-hued hot air balloons just adds to the magic of the moment.
See the Northern Lights in Iceland
Your footfalls will be the only sound as you leave behind the hum of the city for the clear, crisp Icelandic night. Witness the celestial glow of the Northern Lights dancing across the sky, while keeping warm with your partner…and a thermos of hot chocolate.
Quebec City in wintertime
Quebec City is one of the oldest European settlements in North America, and feels like a little piece of France tucked away in snowy eastern Canada. The Old City retains its historical charm and ambiance with cobbled streets, stone buildings and intimate cafes just perfect for couples to warm up after a chilly morning enjoying the famous “Carnivale” winter festival.
Sunset wine tour in Santorini, Greece
No one who’s seen photos of Santorini can resist the gorgeous contrast of whitewashed buildings glinting against the cerulean sky. Your local guide Dimitris can take you and your partner to the best spot to watch a Mediterranean sunset, the perfect end to an afternoon spent wandering through sun-soaked vineyards.
