Travel today is no longer limited to in-person experiences, thanks to technology and devices, there are numerous immersive ways to virtually discover new destinations. Our platform of digital experiences covers a wide range of interests and countries, providing everyone – from people with disabilities, caregivers who can’t get away, or individuals who are less mobile or not of age to travel independently – a chance to explore dream destinations without having to pack a suitcase or use their passport. Additionally, as top-rated expert local guides host them, these online, interactive encounters go into greater detail and background than the average visitor who visits for the first time, on a budget or a limited schedule. This month, join us for a first-hand experience of some unique destinations.
Hike Machu Picchu Without The Hassles
Planning an in-person trip to see this symbol of the Inca Empire on the eastern slopes of the Andes Mountains comes with a few challenges. Not only are tickets hard to come by but the weather can be unpredictable and depending on the trail of interest, there are limited permits issued daily. For sustainably-minded travelers, the question of visiting an already over touristed destination also poses a quandary. We offer a private experience conducted in English or Spanish that will take you on a virtual tour broadcasted live from the highest viewpoint so you can drink in the beauty of its advanced architecture terraces with its giant rock walls and ramps at leisure, and without any altitude sickness.
Visit the Great Pyramids & Ride a Camel in an Afternoon
Built over 5,000 years ago, the Pyramids of Giza are truly a marvel of human ingenuity and imagination. The only Wonder of the World to remain largely intact, it’s a sight not to be missed. Unfortunately, making a trip to Egypt just to see the Pyramids of Giza is an extravagance. A country that warrants at least two weeks on the ground, for many, this is an experience that’ll be hard to juggle alongside work and family commitments. Our sightseeing tour however offers the chance to ride through the stark desert around the Giza plateau on a camel and observe the pyramids up close. Hosted by a local expert guide who will talk about the time it was built and the pharaohs who commissioned them, you’ll also have the opportunity to look at the great sphinx, all of this on the back of a camel!
Join Venice Locals On a Stroll Without Dealing With Crowds
The city of Venice is a bucketlist favorite of travelers for its charming, cobbled streets and footbridges. In a bid to conserve the city, daytrippers will now have to make reservations and pay a fee to visit the historic lagoon city. Skip these logistics and help preserve Venice by joining our virtual walking discovery tour across the Rialto Bridge. On this one-hour tour, you’ll explore the neighborhood of Rialto, once the banking center of Venice, and the inspiration for Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice'. Our guide will bring you to a bustling fish market and watch residents going about their day, and as the tour is offered between 6am-9pm (Venice time) you can opt to start the tour right before sunset so you’ll see the city bathed in a warm golden glow.
