My name is Steven McBay and I'm a passionate low-budget backpacker. I actively search for hidden gems in this world that are still affordable and well accessible. These are tough criteria, but when I finally find a destination that meets these criteria, the hard work looking for it is totally worth it! Although I refer several times to Local-Guides, I am not affiliated to them other than that I strongly sympathize with their objectives. Rarely have I found a tour operator that is such great value for money for budget travelers like me, and I feel responsible to spread the word on their behalf.
