How Does Culture Swap Work?

Create Your Profile

All of our members share a little bit about themselves by answering a few friendly questions in their member profile. Your profile can only be seen by registered Culture Swap members; it helps people get to know each other a little before they get together over an activity.

In addition to a personal profile, hosts publish activity and meal listings; think of them like a profile for what you'd be doing. Posting activities is free and you can post as many as you want, but simply posting 1 or 2 gets you off to a great start. Culture Swap activities aren't tours, so the attitude towards them should be casual and inviting!

Find Out What People are Doing

Our hosts use Culture Swap to share their favorite foods, recipes and activities with locals, travelers and expats alike. They love to meet new people, try new things and learn about different cultures and countries.

Peruse our Activities and Members pages to discover people and experiences that strike your fancy, in your own city or in the places you're traveling.

Set a Date & Join the Party!

When you find an activity that interests you, join by making a booking request for your preferred date. If you have questions about a Culture Swap activity, ask the host through our secure messaging system. Not sure about your schedule yet? Save activities as favorites to find them again later. Your bookings and favorites can be easily managed from your Culture Swap Dashboard.

Once a booking request has been confirmed, we send you important contact information and make sure everyone knows the activity’s location or meeting point. When the date arrives, hosts prepare to share the day with new friends. As a guest, all you have to do is show up, be yourself and have a great time!

Say Thanks!

After each activity, you can share what a great time you had by leaving reviews. Reviews build trust within the Culture Swap community, they help hosts know what their guests like most about the activities they offer, and they help guests get invited to join other activities.
