The best way to see a city is to travel with a local. This is the idea behind Urban Adventures, a touring company with outposts in cities around the world, including Melbourne, Beijing, and Quito. At each location, a local tour guide introduces visitors to the cities they love on day tours that may take them kayaking in Copenhagen, biking through Amsterdam, or sipping beer in Boston.
As they learn about the burg's history and hidden gems, smart visitors also incorporate Urban Adventures' Responsible Travel Code of Conduct into their travels, including learning a little of the local language and customs. Urban Adventures also recommends using public transportation, buying artisan souvenirs instead of imported items, and having a conversation with the pigeons in the park.
