Three days before your chosen date, she sends you your personalized itinerary, promising surprises that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving more.

Here are the ways that Hidden Agendas is a sustainable tourism product:

Maximizes your tour time

You can spend as much time as you want on your tour, depending on your availability and preferences. Opt to extend your tour to multiple days, if you want to explore more regions and cuisines. It’s also possible to take a deeper look at one location.

Relaxes the mind

You don’t have to worry about planning, booking, or paying for anything, as everything is taken care of by Chew On This.
