We have been traveling together for over 13+ years, from moving to a different country and settling in many cities and countless weekend trips. Over the years, we have used and loved some of these tools more than others. 

Hope you like them as much as we do.

Tours & Attractions Passes

We enjoy taking tours. We also enjoy exploring on our own. Who said you can’t combine both? Some cities are best explored with a guide and in some cities, you just gotta lose yourself to actually experience it. 

For short guided tours, we LOVE GetYourGuide – no trip is complete without them! Their Europe selection is quite wider than any other tour providers out there.


Online tour sellers for passes, tickets, and tours in North America & beyond!


Use Klook for Swiss Travel Passes, attraction tickets in Asian cities, and more!

Multiday Guided Tours & Excursions

For multi-day tours, we choose Intrepid Travel or G Adventures. Both are small group tour providers and certified B companies.


Perfect for small groups, ages 18 to 35 years, mostly multi-share accommodation.

Intrepid Travel

Small-group tour for all ages, with mid to low-budget accommodation. Special cultural tours.

Getting Around

We try to use sustainable means of travel. And the way we move around in a city, from country to country matters. We limit air travel and renting a car overseas, and craft our itineraries using small group tours, and public transportation (buses, trains, ferries, etc.)


We use Busbud to book buses in Europe and beyond. The site compares different operators – their schedules, and fares to give you the best deal!


Perfect for Eurail passes, seat reservations, and EPIC seasonal deals.
