About us:

12hrs is a travel website for people like you. Our travel guides take you off the beaten paths, to our favorite secret spots, design destinations, and the places to be.

Our guides are 12hrs long itineraries that boil down the best a place has to offer in one handy schedule. Less sightseeing, more wandering. Cool stores instead of tourist traps. Luxury when you want it and bargains when you least expect them.

We love fashion, design, great food and even better coffee, and we show you the places that do the same.
