Naida - Rome, Italy

There is no better way to spend a layover in Rome then with a CityPal like Naida to show you around town. Naida is very personable and her love of architecture, history and Italy is infectious. I wouldn’t have been able to see and explore as much as I did without Naida. Thank you for a great intro to Rome.

Willow - Montreal, Quebec, Canada

With only a few hours to spare and with no time to research “the best things to do in Montreal” I left it to Willow to recommend a walking tour that included her favorite places and sites. Willow’s tour was just what I was looking for: interesting and filled with unique factoids about the sites, streets and monuments along the way. 10 minutes into the tour we found out that we are both fans of the late Singer Song writer and Montreal Native, Leonard Cohen. So, as we walked the streets of Montreal, Willow shared stories about Cohen’s life and of how the city streets and iconic monuments are referenced in his songs. We started at the Marguerite-Bourgeoys Church where we climbed the 67 stairs to the top Church’s tower for some great views of the city. Then we went for a brief tour of the Clock Tower and a stroll along the Saint Lawrence river. We continued to walk through the Governor's Garden and took a short Uber drive to the top of St. Laurent street. The ambiance of this part of town is filled with counterculture shops and café’s, awesome street murals, and some very colorful people. We finished our tour stuffing our faces with some really tasty roast beef sandwiches at a Jewish Deli that was frequented by no other than the great Leonard Cohen. I am very happy to have chosen Willow as my Montreal CityPal. She customized the tour on the fly to make sure I find the places and stories interesting and appealing. Adding to the overall experience were intriguing side conversations about storytelling, travel, culture, religion, business and much more. Thank you Willow for showing me a great and memorable time in Montreal.

Amaker - San Francisco, CA, United States

Amaker is a real San Francisco local expert. She showed us around the city and gave us a really nice and interesting walking tour of China Town and the surrounding neighborhoods. She accommodated our wishes and made our family of four feel at ease. Amaker gave us many good tips on secret spots in the city which we will definitely use as we continue to explore San Francisco in the coming days. Thanks Amaker for being a gracious and welcoming host.

Mindy - New York City, NY, United States

I had a lovely tour with Mindy. She shares her wealth of knowledge about the City, it’s history, culture and cuisine in a light, friendly and casual manner. Her local knowledge, experience (13 years as a guide) and genuine New York accent, adds flavor and authenticity to her tour. She provided me with tips on authentic food joints and the best way to get Broadway tickets for a great price and even at the last minute. I definitely recommend Mindy as a tour guide and a CityPal for New York City.

Joshua - New York City, NY, United States

Joshua was the perfect New York CityPal. He guided me through some of NYC's most colorful neighborhoods, markets, and shops. He introduced me to super cool cafes in SoHo, great seafood restaurants in Chelsea and unique/specialty stores in China Town and Little Italy. He was very personable, knowledgeable accommodating and fun to travel with.
