Triptrotting is a community of travelers and locals who are matched based on similar interests. It enables people to travel like a local by finding authentic activities and like-minded locals anywhere in the world.
With the help and expertise of Galen Buckwalter (former Chief Scientist at eHarmony), Triptrotting’s community includes functions that help match travelers and local hosts based on compatibility, measuring dimensions ranging from personality to professional interests. Whether it’s meeting for a meal or a tour of the town, being matched with someone who is like-minded helps enhance the experience for both the traveler and host, allowing both parties not only share their cultures, but expand their international networks.
The Triptrotting network gives travelers a far less of a touristy travel experience while providing an opportunity for locals to expand their global footprint and network without ever leaving their city.
The Triptrotting service is present in over 2000 cities across 150 countries.
