- To put a ginormous smile on her face
- To spread the word: “Do nice things for your parents today… It doesn’t have to be big.”
And while Corey’s plan to please may differ slightly from that of a tour guide (regrettably, not many guides purchase vintage cars for their clients!), both people share the ultimate desire to do something nice for others.
But, like Corey, not only do guides strive to please, they also want to surprise visitors with interesting tidbits about their locales. Corey surprised his mother with a car that was once simply a long-held dream, and guides all over the world will surprise you with facts that you’d never believe were true, such as that Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time, a nugget of fascinating information a guide who leads art walks in Italy would share with you.
While you may now be inclined to save your pennies to purchase a charming vintage number like the Saab Corey surprised his mother with, we suggest simply hiring a guide that gives private car tours; a fun and information-packed ride in one of their top-of-the-line cars will definitely meet your car needs.
The take-home message: give surprises, welcome surprises, and, if you don’t have a son like Corey, get your surprises from tour guides worldwide.
