Customised New York

Andreas Leuzinger and Simon Mingozzi, two young Swiss, have ventured to undertake what many people actually dream of but do not ultimately dare do: they have made a career of something they are passionate about, which is travelling.

They moved to New York, a city that fascinates them, just under two years ago. They now provide tourists with customised advice on the place they have decided to make their home. LOCALIKE is based on the principle of “customised travelling”. Customers list their likes and interests, and LOCALIKE organises the ideal, individual travel itinerary based on these details. Customers must firstly complete a questionnaire on the homepage and create a profile. Here they are asked about their interests, likes, special requests and the duration of their visit. Three options can be booked: Selection, Smart and Personal. Selection comprises a recently researched itinerary of travel modules produced without individual consultation. It costs USD 49 a day. The cost of the other options depends upon the services provided. The positive feedback indicates that the quality of the offering is excellent. BE
