Overview of festivals in Hoi An

The locals in Hoi An are very religious. During the most important festivals, the New moon and the full Moon festivals, locals become vegetarian. You can’t find a restaurant with a free table. Before the full moon day, there is a Full moon festival. It’s great festival with beautiful colored lanterns all over Hoi An. You can’t see any street lights, no cars or motorbikes, just beautiful colored lanterns. The whole atmosphere is a thing you need to experience when you are visiting Hoi An. It’s planned every full moon, so you can’t miss it!

A customized trip with Isabel

My family of 6 including three children from the ages 9-12 discovered Paris for the first time with Isabel. We could not have asked for a more amazing guide!!!
She had so much knowledge and history it was unbelievable!! The kids had the best time with Isabel, she made the trip so enjoyable and we learnt so much as well!!
We explored the whole of Paris in two days with Isabel and was able to see all the monumental sites plus hidden treasures!!
She booked all the tickets and made sure waiting time was minimal!
If you ever need a guide in Paris, Isabel will make your trip a phenomenal one!!!
Relax, enjoy and have a stress free time!!!
Thankyou so much Isabel for making our first trip to Paris AWESOME!!!

John Naushad

Street Food Tour of Colombo: the 10 Tastings

A very enjoyable walking tour. When in a city like Colombo things can be a bit overwhelming so it was nice to walk around with a local. Simple things like buying a coconut on a street corner were very exciting and something we wouldn’t have done on our own. The tour lasted for 3 hrs and passed very quickly. Naushad was very pleasant company and informative, so if a little nervous on your own then this trip is excellent.
