ViaHero is a new virtual service which is connecting tourists with local travel experts who offer custom itineraries, advice and safety tips for those looking to experience a more authentic visit.
The app matches the pair together prior to the travelers visit, and together the two establish a timeline and budget. The local guide will then create a custom schedule based around this information that ensures the traveler makes the most of the trip, without falling victim to common scams, or wasting time visiting something the locals consider to be overrated.
The traveler's guide can be contacted throughout the duration of one's trip. Currently, ViaHero is available in Japan, Colombia, Cuba and Iceland.
