mygola.com gives everyone their own personal travel concierge. Travelers ask us any question and an expert guide does all the online research for their trip.
We've built two assets that allow us to do this at scale.
1. A global community of hundreds of travel freelancers ("guides") who use our technology platform to do the research
2. A technology platform (guide.mygola.com) that pulls data from a hand-picked (and growing) collection of the top 3000 sites in the world to aid our guides in their research. The platform allows our guides to simply provide human judgment on automated recommendations as opposed to doing all the research themselves.
The combination of these assets lets us do the seemingly impossible on a daily basis, i.e. a guide who's never been to Costa Rica planning an amazing trip for a traveler going there. We've planned thousands of trips to more than 80 countries, and we're proud of the love we get from our travelers.
