Before talking to you about who we are:
To explain who we are “Free Walking Tour Platform” we will first see why it was born; In the world of business related to tourism, specifically in the part of tours, there is an ingrained system among travel agencies, wholesalers or retailers.
Unfortunately, in this system or practice, the guides who are the persons who add the most value to the traveler’s stay are the last in importance in the business chain. They are the ones who receive the least and those who, in case something goes wrong, are in the center of the bullseye, since they are the ones who receive the most criticism in travel forums and opinion pages.
The guide, as the last in the business components, is the one who receives the least gratification from these agencies.
With the birth of online travel platforms, the system was copied, although giving it some shine, but we guides know that it is nothing more than a decoration that they added to the description and highlighted well-studied words in the SEO of the platforms, a monster in sheep’s clothing.
