About

My friend Steven was in New York City a month back. With New York’s rich culture and unique lifestyle, anyone would expect to have a good time. But Steven didn’t. Why? Not having a single friend in the city, he had no clue where to meet interesting people, where to discover the underground music scene, where to experience the true nature of New York? 

Steven’s unfortunate suffering is something common nowadays. Truth is: travelling has lost its personal touch; by having no real connection with local cultures, it has become frustrating, boring, and generic. Knowing there must be a better way to travel, we created our app, Sherpa. It connects travelers in a new city with passionate locals who can take them on exciting, unique, and culturally flavored tours around the city in the their own native language. It’s like finding a friend anywhere in the world at the click of a button. Just select the city, discover a tour, view its timeline. Like it? Reserve it and pay on the spot. Have any confusion prior to the tour? Call the guide using our built-in voice feature. 
 Sherpa is unique in that it focuses on travelling for experience & helps building a social dynamic amongst travelers around the world. Our target audiences are young domestic travellers and international travelers visiting the United States. Last year alone, 1.8 million Chinese tourists brought a whooping $21 billion cash flow into the United States’ tourism industry. Thus we are also developing a Chinese version of our app as well. So guys, now whenever your friends ask you how do you manage to have a blast in any city you visit, just tell them Sherpa helps you find a friend, anywhere you go.
