Your California Bucket List: Size up classic cars, tour historic Union Station and collect OMG reactions at colorful Venice Beach

A knowledgeable, Rapa Nui-fluent island guide

A reader recommends Marcus Edensky as a guide for trips to Easter Island

If you plan to visit Easter Island, a great first step is hiring Marcus Edensky as your guide. Though Marcus is originally from Sweden, he has made it his business to learn everything he can about the island and the Rapa Nui culture. We spent four amazing days with Marcus and visited all the major moai installations as well as a few hidden gems. Marcus speaks Rapa Nui, knows the stories and songs of the people and is extremely knowledgeable about the history of this fascinating place.
