Discover new places with our local guides
Your Passenger Diaries guides live in the region you’re visiting.
There is simply no better way to discover a faraway place than in the company of a well-connected friend. That’s how you’ll feel about the fulltime local guides who will be your non-stop companions every step of the way on any Passenger Diaries Experiences.
You’ll always enjoy their company.
Passenger Diaries guides are there full-time for you, all day and every step of the way. From time to time, they will introduce you to specialists in anything from ageing cheese in a cave to wine-tasting to chocolate bar making. Our guides have leeway to personalise your trip on the fly, whether it’s to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity like a one-day festival or an invitation into a private home. Your guide will also be glad to offer ideas that appeal to your special interests.
Moments when a local guide matters most…
– In a village café, you want to try the off-the-menu dish they’re having at the next table, but you don’t know how to ask for it.
– A flock of sheep blocks your footpath, but your guide knows a detour through the private pasture of her childhood friend.
– You need a packet of antihistamines, but no one in the pharmacy speaks English.
