However, this is never true, we trust our friends, colleagues or acquaintances and ask them for advice on what to do, visit or buy when travelling. And, when we are the travellers, we love making recommendations on what to do or not to do.
Find below a summary of the expressions to ask for and to make recommendations. Just change the part in italics and you will be able to make use of them in any situation:
