Nectar & Pulse is a new Austrian company designed to make traveling to foreign cities a more personal experience. This is done by offering travel guides created by your city's "soulmates." The soulmates are locals who have the same passions as you, and as such, can provide intriguing points of interest that are unlikely to be found on the stock city tour guide.
The service is extremely simple to use and currently serves three European cities including London, Vienna and Stockholm. Users start by selecting a city, then select soulmates to help fill their guide. Each soulmate has a profile and a brief description about their interests and themselves. Adding a soulmate to your "suitcase" adds all of that person's suggestions and points of interests. Special city maps are created with each point of interest marked.
According to the creators of Nectar & Pulse, the best places in a foreign city are often found via the locals, not the tour guide. Here's hoping that Nectar & Pulse take off and consider adding some American cities to their roster.
