HipHost, a new “peer-to-peer marketplace for socially-hosted local tours“, not only gives travelers a way to experience new cities from a local’s point of view, but also gives people an opportunity to make extra cash.
Anyone who wants to share their local knowledge can be a HipHost and design a tour based on anything they find interesting. Some tour topics include art, culture, fitness, architecture, history, hiking, markets, music, and more. It’s free to sign-up and guests pay for tours in advance, so hosts don’t have to worry about losing money to no-shows.
Moreover, anyone interested in learning about a topic can search for affordable tours and see a region from a local perspective without paying big tour company prices. Afraid you won’t enjoy your tour? HipHost guarantees a full refund if customers are not satisfied.
Some of the many tours being featured right now include:
- a 2 hour tour of the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market in San Francisco, California, including maps and insider knowledge on the products and prices ($30/per person)
- a 3 hour photography tour that will allow guide customers through various New York neighborhoods to see and photograph the “real streets of New York” ($45/per person)
- a 2 hour cycling tour of Chicago, Illinois ($20/per person)
And many, many more. Click here to sign-up for and/or host a tour.
