Snapcity connects visitors and locals through an online chat. When the chat is done, Visitors are invited to tip($$$) the Local according to their satisfaction.


The Visitors can save time and significantly improve their traveling experiences. The Locals can make some extra income, while sharing their knowledge and passion for the city they live in. Win-win situation!


Just ask a question! Then you can choose with which of the available locals you would like to chat. He or she will be ready to help you get the best out of this new city youre exploring.


At the end of the chat the Visitors are invited to give a Tip (€€€) according to their satisfaction.


SnapCity builds a community of people that are willing to share their knowledge and passion for the city they live in (the Locals) and of people searching for “non touristic” information provided on real time by real people (the Visitors).


That community is managed by a mutual review system, Locals rating provided by the visitors and average Tip given or received.
