Somewhere, on the internet, I stumbled upon a new website, called Vayable.
I am in love with it, internet.
And you should be, too.
What is Vayable?
By now I am sure you are well aware of my infatuation with Airbnb. It is quite well documented.
Vayable is kind of like that, but different. It is a platform for playing tour guide, more or less. You can sign up to offer experiences, based on your local expertise.
Even better, as a traveler, newcomer to the area, or just someone who wants to get out and explore and have a new experience in their area, you have a whole smorgasbord of activities to pick from!
So let’s say that I was planning a trip to Portland (which I did late this summer… and then was not able to go). I would go to Vayable.com, type in Portland, OR and then I would see this:
I could choose from all sorts of different experiences that I could have in Portland. The wine tour looks mighty fine, to me.
Who is Bob?
When you pick an experience through Vayable, you are also picking a person, not just a tour company. Like with Airbnb, everyone on the site has a profile, including a picture and a little bit about themselves.
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
After you enjoy (or don’t, I suppose) an experience on Vayable, you have an opportunity to review the experience and give it a star rating. This helps the tour guide improve their offering and helps other travelers pick the best experiences for themselves.
What Makes it So Awesome?
Vayable makes use of the best experts out there – people who live places and have a passion for what they are offering. Loves of architecture can offer you a walking tour of downtown Rome. Cocktail connoisseurs can whisk you off to see the best mixologists in London. Brent can take you sailing on his ketch in Victoria.
