LocalMeze is a platform where a curated selection of local people plan trips for travelers. We match travelers with locals using a similarity metric based on their taste profile. They work together to create a personalized itinerary. For example, if you were into architecture and going to Paris, with LocalMeze, a local Parisian architecture buff would tell you about the places you should visit. Most people travel to experience a place. To find these authentic experiences, they read books, spend hours on forums, review sites etc. They google-translate blogs. They do this to find out what locals like to do in their city.LocalMeze gives them access to this information directly and not by proxy. People can access knowledgeable locals for travel research without spending tons of time and being overwhelmed by choices. Rather than contemplate the haikus coined randomly by Google Translate, they are eating the best ramen in Tokyo!
