They really enjoy what they do and express great joy in introducing you to favorite local places, people and the behind-the-scenes spots that would never otherwise be explored. As they open up, you will begin to learn about their own lifestyles and families, along with personal influences and beliefs. They have great interpersonal skills, and their fine sense of humor will make you feel very comfortable during your trips.
