Tours By Locals

Welcome to this week’s episode of Low Season Traveller Insider Guides.

Today we're delighted to be joined by Paul Melhus who is the Canadian Founder and CEO of an utterly wonderful organisation called Tours By Locals.

Tours By Locals have over 4,700 local tour guides in 190 countries throughout the world who provide their guests with an authentic, local experience of their home destination in a way that few other tour companies can manage.
