My absolute favorite thing about travel is meeting people who live in those destinations and if they take me somewhere they love to go... well I'll just be giddy from such luck!
That is why I thing Gidsy is PURE GENIUS!!! Think Etsy but for Activities!!!!
I tell you a secret. Once upon a time when I lived in NYC, I wanted to start a walking tour company. Then I took a huge shotgun and shot myself in the foot about 38 times. (Over thinking things like, nyc tourism activity permit, insurance, taxes, etc, etc, etc...)
Now for example, you're on your way to Amsterdam and you're walking around taking in the sites. You come across one of the many picturesque canals and see lovely house boats. You lean accross the bridge railing wistfully thinking... "Oh if I only knew someone who lived on such a boat, they could invite me over and I can see what it's like inside..."
Well GUESS WHAT!? Few clicks on Gidsy and you're in!!!! I myself have not used it yet, but the next time I'm going somewhere I can't wait to give this a try! As for the house boat dinner, a total MUST quintessential Amsterdam.

Security declaimer: of course the jaded New Yorker in me is screaming not to go into any stranger's house as it could end in a bloody mess.... but I realize that it's a personal problem to work out privately with my team of psychologists so for now I tell the voice to shut it, and enjoy life ;)
Where would you take a tourist to in your town?
