The name “Hi, hi” is quite catchy and the concept of the company is to book a private tour with a local in the destination you are traveling to. As soon as we saw the words “local” and “private”, we knew this was an experience we couldn’t pass up. We are all about finding hidden gems and it’s usually the locals that know where they are.
