Ukrainian-based start-up 'Experitus' is an online travel experience platform that allows locals to teach short instructional classes to local visitors. The website is designed to give travelers a more all-encompassing experience by teaching them about different local crafts and customs.
The site was developed by Alexander Yaremchuk after he observed that many travelers were coming away from their vacation without new experiences. Rather than simply tasting local food and visiting historic monuments, Yaremchuk realized that travelers also wanted to bring back knowledge from their trips. He founded Experitus as a travel experience platform to help local people make money by sharing their hobbies and careers, while also giving tourists an opportunity to experience a different aspect of local culture.
The website ultimately helps travelers take part in exciting local actives which can include everything from an afternoon painting outdoors in Paris to an authentic cooking lesson in Rome.
