About Guide Me Right
Has it ever happen to you to travel and not to fully enjoy your stay? Or simply to get bored, in your own city, because you didn’t know what to do or you had nobody to go there with? It happened to us, and it actually happens to a lot people everyday.
Nowadays, a massive amount of travellers 2.0 ends up choosing amongst that “small” number of tourist destinations and attractions with the best online reputation. We call such a process: digital "2.0 standardization" of the travel Experience.
The solution is Guide Me Right, which applies to the Tour & Activities sector the new principles of sharing economy and global accessibility. Guide Me Right is a community of enthusiastic and curious explorers who share the values and the vademecum of the community. We match them so that they can live authentic local Experiences.
Guide Me Right (GMR) is a cross-platform community marketplace where to discover and book social and cultural experiences offline with a Local Friend. Download our mobile App now!
How it works
A LOCAL FRIEND is a local person who shares with you his/her local knowledge and lifestyle the same way s/he usually does with a visiting friend. Rather than offering tour guides, GMR focuses on social experiences so as to provide an access point to places, activities and/or environment otherwise inaccessible. GUESTS – both travellers and local people - can take advantage of a new social and cultural opportunity by having a Local Friend everywhere.
All the GMR users are potential Guests and/or Local Friends. They are required to introduce themselves to the community. Anyone can apply to become a Local Friend and GMR verifies and trains each one of them. Each Local Friends has to create a personal list of ACTIVITIES they offer to Guests by answering to two simple questions:
- Which kind of activities do you usually share with a visiting friend?
- Which are your hobbies and passions?
Finally, the Local Friend receives a BADGE that reports his/her seniority and, consequently, suggests his/her HOURLY RATE. Guests can look for the best Local Friends/Activities available and GMR presents the results sorted by the “social affinity” with the Guest.
When Guests and Local Friends agree about the overall Experience to do together, the Guest can finally confirm the reservation and approve the payment, which is processed only when the Local Friend confirms his/her availability for the Experience.
