Local Tour Guide Company
This business idea does not depend on your city being a popular tourist destination. Finding the best local restaurants, deserts, hidden local attractions, and places that only you know about locals can add a lot of value to people outside of the area. This idea is also easy to get started because you can easily hire a driver and rent a van to take people to these places.
You will be out of competition because many tourism companies cater to take people to the spot which is very famous and designed for tourists. You can also charge higher fees because this tourism will be more special and out-of-the-box.
