Who stands behind it?
VisitLocals broadens your horizons and offers regional experiences.
Behind each experience is a guide who will personally show you something new.
The Co-Founders are all members of the Young Chamber of Commerce Lucerne. One of them, Silvan, wanted to organize a new, personal tour for friends in Porto - away from the big tourist streams. He has discovered a new platform. Long story short - the tour was a flop and he said we could do better. That's how VisitLocals came into being and we can say with a clear conscience - yes, we can do better :)
My name is Andreas Gassmann and I am the managing director of the online platform VisitLocals.
I love the approach of VisitLocals, that everybody can directly participate in the tourism as a guide. In my opinion this is the essence of social, ecological, personal and sustainable tourism.
Best experience with VisitLocals
My wife and son offer a chapati tour on VisitLocals. It is so nice to see how the guests learn something and new stories are created. Two visitors were so enthusiastic that they sent us a package of Obwalden specialties after the tour.
To be overwelmed with so much love is just unbelievable :)
