Let's get AMAZED together!
Forget about the coach tours where you're packed in with complete strangers, you can put away the pocket guide book and the map. Let me be your personal guide who can show you places, reveal sights and sounds, engage in talks about history, society and culture or simply hang-out with. It would be my absolute pleasure.

INSIDER CITY TOURS

A Recent Review of this guide
We had an absolutely perfect day with Stan! He is an intelligent, delightful and thoughtful guide. Our first stop was a wonderful castle in the Rhineland and the views of the Rhine and surrounding areas were amazing! We took the fairy across the Rhine to have lunch in a quaint village and Stan made recommendations to us on local cuisine. The afternoon exceeded all expectations with stops for three wine tastings. Each stop was was SO unique and fun! Stan is a wealth of knowledge on history and wine!
