Mommy "Going" Meets Mommy "BeenHere"

When planning any trip, even if information about the destination you’re planning to explore is readily available, there is nothing like being able to sit down with someone who’s been there for some road-tested tips. We’re building Trekaroo to connect families who’ve been there with families who are going. Trekaroo is beyond a travel guide! It’s a place where families who are going somewhere can ask questions about the destination they’re heading to and have families who have been there provide answers.

Been to…say… New York City? Why would you want to click that infamous “We’ve Been Here” button?

It’s the fastest and simplest way to start that list of places that you’ve been to in any particular destination. You don’t have to write a review right away, but you can easily assemble a list with a single click. The next time you’re trying to remember where you went on that trip, you can come back to Trekaroo and find all your memories in one place in your Trekaroo passport. If a friend asks for your recommendations simply share your passport with them.

Going to New York city? Join Trekaroo and you now you have access to families who have been there.

Whether you’re obsessing over the details of your trip and just needing some local or road-tested tips, you can start a conversation with the families who have been there on Trekaroo and get those questions answered.

Wallah! You now have access to real experts – families, who are spread all across the country.

If that’s not good enough, Trekaroo works our magic and categorizes that great exchange of information so that the next time someone else has the same question about New York City or the American Museum of Natural History, instead of just finding reviews, they can join the conversation.

Goodbye to the black hole of forums! No, those pearly gems of wisdom will never be lost in endless archives that are daunting to the most brave of heart.
