Giving Back

THINK BIG shop small!

 The Best Kept Secrets Tours are committed to giving back to the local community.  We do this by bringing family and friends together to enjoy the tucked away treasures in their own back yards, by supporting the local small businesses and the local economy and by donating much needed funds to locally based charities.   


Because of your continued support, we have been privileged to be able to donate to the following organizations:
