The guides at Insight Cities are professors, graduate students, historians, journalists, art critics, and published authors. As professional researchers and educators, we cater to visitors who want to enjoy spirited and informed presentations of the cultural and political histories of great cities.
We craft engaging tours that reveal centuries of history in insightful ways because we’re passionate about the past and futures of the cities that we help you to explore. You travel to shift your boundaries and expand your knowledge of the world. That same love of adventure and discovery motivates us and is an extension of the curiosity that led us to academic research, teaching, and journalism. As brainy guides, we look for the crucial detail, the vital, quirky fact that illuminates local cultures while also revealing global contexts.
