Ratings and Reviews
The new app is awesome!
I was in Paris and realized we had a few days with nothing planned and I didn’t want to do the touristy stuff so we opened the Vayable app and wow! So many awesome experiences. We wanted to do them all. By the next day we were meeting awesome people and seeing the backroads of a city we thought we kne.
Real local experiences when you travel
Travel is wonderful, but inauthentic if you stay on the beaten path. Vayable is essential for any traveler because it puts authentic experiences at your fingertips, all delivered by local guides who have typically lived there all their lives. My favorite: “How to eat like a local in Paris”
I downloaded the app so I could respond to inquiries quicker (vayable penalizes you if you don't reply to bookings promptly - even if you're on holiday yourself as I am). But the app does nothing except list 6 cities (I'm in Bangkok - you know, the most visited city in the world) and a few tours. No messaging support for guides as far as I know. Seriously... It isn't hard to build a basic chat function these days, it's one of the first things app developers learn.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
