Just because we can’t physically travel doesnt mean we can’t satisfy our inner travel bug. Withlocals is here to take you on virtual tours around the world!
Who doesn’t miss travelling? The longer we go without being able to travel, the worse my cabin fever gets. And I’m sure its the same for you too – it’s been far too log since we were able to step outside of our borders. But apart from needing a break, I definitely need a little more culture too. After all, isn’t the best part of travelling meeting new people and experiencing a new culture?
While IATA predicts that travel will only fully resume in 2023 and the future of air travel is set to look different, there just might be a way to explore new places without leaving our homes in the meantime – enter Withlocals.
What Is Withlocals?
We’ve talked about five virtual tours you can take without leaving your home, but how about one with an actual local guide?
Like the name suggests, Withlocals is a way for you to explore new places virtually, with a real life local guide. Yeah, like an actual person interacting with you in real time, answering all your questions and tailoring the experience for you and your group.
From the Colosseum in Athens to the streets of Hong Kong, you’ll be able to vicariously explore the streets of your dream holiday destination all over the world.
Which Tour Did I Join?
One of the best things about Withlocals is that it’s just your group and your guide, no strangers. It makes the experience far more personal, and without any of the awkward mingling with other tour goers.
I hopped on the Mayan Mythology tour with my YouTrip colleagues and was able to hear about the mystic origins of Mexico, and how the legends say that the Earth began. It was intensely interesting, and I finally understood the magic of a small group virtual tour – I wasn’t shy about asking my guide any questions.
