WanderStorier leads you round the world’s famous landmarks as your own personal guide. Every major tourist attraction has a unique story to tell, and we present it as a true local guide would tell it. Everything you can see or experience will be at your fingertips along with the fascinating stories of the people who created them.
Our storytelling style brings to life the palaces and castles, mosques and markets, battlefields and monuments as history unfolds before you. We’ll tell you about emperors and sultans, concubines and eunuchs, slaves and executioners. We’ll tell you how generals and soldiers, crusaders and gladiators fought to make their mark on history. You will learn about local traditions and customs, holidays and festivals, cuisine, even jokes.
A typical guide will tell you a list of historical facts, but WanderStories will weave a fascinating story that will carry you into the general’s tent, the queen’s bedchamber, and the sculptor’s studio and get the real feeling of history being created.
WanderStories gives you the freedom to enjoy your visit at your own pace, to pause for a break or to study in your hotel room. You don’t even have to travel, as you can call it up in the comfort of your armchair at home. And you won’t miss much, the experience is the same; you’ll live the tour in the same way. Your once-in-a-lifetime journey will be more than a memory, it can be experienced again and again.
We, at WanderStories, are storytellers. Our travel guides don’t intend to replace a typical travel reference guide, so, by all means, bring your Lonely Planet, Frommer’s or DK, and get to know about the mundane. Our mission is to be the best local guide that you would wish to have by your side when visiting the sights.
