Guides For Private Shore Excursions or Tours

The following is a list of tour guides, taxi drivers etc. that we have used or have heard about from our clients in different port cities around the world. Many are simply English speaking drivers who may give you some information but should not be considered guides. Others are more knowledgeable, more expensive as a rule and are true guides imparting knowledge of the area visited. This is a personal choice. Some want all the information whereas others find guides too detailed and prefer only a driver and so that they can set their own pace. Where the Owners and Staff of Keene Luxury Travel, have personally used their services it has been noted accordingly. Guides are noted. Most are tour guides recommended by our clients. We cannot vouch for or be responsible for the quality of these guides this is only to assist you in making your own choices.
