Development team needs to work more on the application, it misses so many tabs needed like adding friends or saving favourites for good tour guides, etc. but the most important thing to me is to show us what is gonna be useful for the users when they pay for a membership “if there is anything else instead of giving reviews”. However, I totally disagree with this idea by paying money before receiving any profits. I would recommend to take a percentage from the money that the local guide will acquire. This will definitely encourage them to do all what they can to be unique persons and to help your site growing up.

Pro: Great you can connect with local guides. App has potential
- Expensive subscription
- can't categorise or mark favourites
- App automatically defaults your profile to be a guide. With no option to change. This was not what I signed up for, and by design it defaults you as listed as a 'free guide', I have not yet received any unsolicited mail, but won't look too kindly if I do. May have to delete account if that happens.
Very helpful app! Connect travellers with locals easily!
