What is Taxi Sightseeing? 

"More freedom in sightseeing and a wider range of destinations."

During your travels, have you ever asked the staff at your lodgings or your taxi driver where you can find the best local food or what sightseeing spots you definitely shouldn’t miss? Information that only locals know about, the kind that can’t be found in guidebooks or on the internet, is extremely valuable. This service will allow you to talk with navigators about restaurants popular with the locals, hidden places the average tourist doesn’t know about, and more. You can decide where you want to go right then and there, and your navigator will take you to your destination via the best route, letting you travel more freely.

The Optimal Route to Your Destination

Taxi Sightseeing will provide you with the best route to take you to your destination. For people who want to arrive even one minute faster, we’ll find the shortest route; for those who want to sightsee along the way, we’ll take you along a route where you can see scenery that can only be enjoyed on the road. In addition, we can create the most suitable route for you by adjusting the time spent at other sightseeing spots so that you can arrive at the restaurant or shop you want to visit at a time when it’s not crowded. This model of tourism is only possible with the help of the local taxi operator.
