Founded in Berlin in 2011, Gidsy is a neat website that matches travelers with locals in 140 cities in 42 countries. Local residents list activities that offer less touristy experiences for reasonable fees. Most of Gidsy’s listings are for activities and events run by local hobbyists, sole proprietors and community groups. Gidsy provides the interface for payments, scheduling and coordination.
So, if you are the kind of traveler who would like to learn Irish folk songs in Dublin, attend a kitchen concert in Utrecht, network over breakfast with other creative types in Berlin, take a walking tour of Amsterdam‘s Red Light District with crime reporter Joost van der Wegen, or sample Chinese dumplings in NYC’s Chinatown, then Gidsy is for you.
