Planning a trip to any city usually requires a decent amount of research and consideration from where to stay, to what to see and do. When it comes to accommodation, many travelers turn to Airbnb for affordable housing options but what they might be surprised to find out is that the website also offers curated and hosted ‘experiences’ and tours. This way, you can find a place to stay, and explore in true, local fashion!
