Peer-to-Peer tour company obituaries for 2016

Generally I post a monthly review of new peer-to-peer travel businesses, but starting fresh in 2017 I decided to clean up my database on these businesses and remove any that have stopped providing services. In the area of Food and Fun (tours, meals, and meetups with other travelers or locals) I saw 14 new companies come […]

Triip Peer to Peer Taipei Food Tour

On a recent trip to Taipei, which for me is largely about eating delicious foods, I scheduled a food tour with the peer to peer activities network Triip. After my research into sharing economy activities in Taiwan I was excited to find that Triip has a few offerings that are free! I selected a tour of the […]

Taiwan Peer to Peer Activities

Preparing for a short trip to Taiwan I did some research on potential peer-to-peer tours and activities, with a focus on food options because this is one of my favorite countries for delicious eating.

At their annual Airbnb Open conference in Los Angeles last week Airbnb announced the official launch of a tours and activities product, Trips. These trips are peer-to-peer activities, mostly offered by existing Airbnb hosts. Some are individual activities while others are multi-day experiences. 

Mt. Kenya Trek Demonstrates Value of Peer-to-Peer Market

But part of the value of peer-to-peer tour platforms is the creativity it offers people who can craft their own unique offerings. And I am always interested in seeing local life in the places I visit, so the Kibera slum tour […]

Sharing Economy Travel Businesses in Africa

On my recent trip to Kenya I spent some time searching around for peer-to-peer travel services that I might take advantage of in the region. One of my favorite activities companies, I Like Local, has a solid presence in Kenya. They offer some very interesting activities both in Nairobi and in the countryside, and it’s […]

Peer to Peer Gear Rental Overview

There are a handful of companies that I know about offering peer to peer travel gear rentals and I’ve seen a number of new businesses coming on the scene in this space in the past two years. It’s an interesting model: instead of traveling with that large and hard-to-transport gear, or stuff you rarely use and don’t need to […]

AirBnb buys Peer-to-Peer tour company Trip4Real

Over the past few years AirBnb has been slowly moving into the peer-to-peer tours and activities space, allowing select members to offer tours that are offered to people when they book a place to stay with AirBnb. This is a logical extension of AirBnb’s peer to peer rental lodging business. People making bookings with AirBnb are mostly tourists, […]
