Guests end up sightseeing because unique experiences are hard to find and insecure to book; hosts end up spending time and money on websites which are hard to update and mostly out of date. They also believe that an "experience is more than just an activity; it's about meeting people, trying something new and seeing the world from a different perspective." In hopes to differentiate themselves, they traveled around Asia to find and curate the best experiences and hosts.Launched in 2012, Voyagin provides a trusted platform for tours and activities providers (hosts) in Asia to list their experiences; its team of community managers work with each host to curate their activities both online and during the experience, ensuring their quality. Backed by its 100% satisfaction guarantee, multilingual customer support, and verified reviews from actual guests, Voyagin is the best place for travelers visiting Asia to discover and book their next local experience.Voyagin was founded in 2011 as FindJPN, a marketplace for authentic activities in Japan.
