If you’ve traveled alone, you know it can be difficult to find something to do. Without a group or even just a partner, the trip can very easily become just another excuse to sit around and do nothing. You have to make sure you take advantage of every adventure you find yourself on. But how do you find something if you’re on your own? You find a guide. And who knows the city better than a local?
There are places you can explore across the Global Greeter Network, where you can meet locals and experience the city with them head on. Or, you could join with a pack and explore everything as part of a tour by locals. A number of citizens offer their services to various travelers, with culinary walking tours or the history of a city. In some cities, there are even programs that will introduce you to a local for a few hours if you’re even just stuck with a layover and need to get out of the hotel.
