We have a lot more similar trips that you could check out.

Why Tenerife? Look at a map and find out this island is part of an archipelago off the coast of Morocco. Do some research and you will learn it is the capital of a Spanish autonomous community. Talk to their people and understand the special bond with Latin America and its cultural implications. Black-sand beaches, jaw-dropping cliffs, 20 million-year-old forest, Spain’s highest point (it is on the African plate though), volcanic tunnels and eternal spring, are some of Tenerife’s best-known claims to fame; but what about the ones only locals know about? Let us take you to a “guachinche” (typical and delicious home-like restaurants), where you will enjoy local wine and specialities. Let us show you the hidden lighthouses, docks and beaches, where we grew up diving and enjoying sunsets. Let us walk you through the alleys of our favourite villages and learn how the local architecture inspired some of the most beautiful colonial towns in Latin America. Let us tell you about the “Guanches”, the mysterious aboriginal inhabitants of the Islands and their mummies. And most importantly, talk to some of the friendliest people you will ever meet and let them explain to you, why the local carnival rivals Rio de Janeiro itself. The Canary Islands is a one-off location in the world - Join us. Bienvenidos a Tenerife!

Hola, my name is David, and I'm originally from the Canary Islands - but genuinely feel like a citizen of the world. I've been living harmoniously in beautiful Krakow for the past 5 years, getting involved with locals, travelling across the country and discovering unusual spots to take my guests for a unique touring experience. Together with my brother & experienced traveller, we have created a slow travel brand called Be Local Explorers, encouraging people to get involved with small-sized tour operators. I'm passionate when it comes to revealing to people what Krakow has to offer. From ancient pagan places, old churches & fortified monasteries, nostalgic areas of the city showing a turbulent past or unique local restaurants & hidden coffee places. Join me and experience a historic city that has established its own identity from adversity. Witamy w Krakowie!
