When traveling to foreign lands, the challenge is finding a local guide who knows what you — persnickety, lovable you — like.

Whiskey bars, say. Not tourist haunts. Fishing, say. Not shopping malls.

Enter Vayable, showing you the way and taking clients now.

Started by (of all people) a Daily Show vet, Vayable connects travelers with local guides who are – through the miracles of neuroscience – “the local version of you.”

A Sam Rockwell to your Sam Rockwell in Moon, as it were.

What you like, they like. And know. And book for you.


To start, fill out a brief travel quiz on their site: destination, preferred dates – plus a travel Rorschach test that helps you choose representative photos of your ideal vacay.

Psych profile in hand, Vayable matches you with a compatible “Insider” living in your preferred destination. This Earth 2 you builds your itinerary, awaits your edits and then books your entire adventure.

You click once to approve.

Your travels: more than 500 destinations. Vayable guides do tend toward the extreme: think fishing with a Fijian king, swimming with sharks or touring a nudist beach in Barcelona.

Maybe not the best time to run into the other you.
