WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- CityPals offers the global traveling community a chance to connect with locals either as a guide or tourist, and to gain experiences and insights on a personal level. It differs from other local travel companies in its grass roots approach. The CityPals platform provides an easy to use tool for people to meet in a way that's fresh and flexible.

This new app introduces Near Me functionality which allows users to find CityPals and Featured Tours based on their phone's location, in real time. For travelers on the move, this is a great feature. And the built in messaging technology now allows for even faster communication with other CityPals and travelers.

The app mirrors website functions including:



  • Building and editing CityPal profiles
  • Searching for CityPals and tours in cities across the globe
  • Booking and managing tours
  • Creating and editing Featured Tours

The app was developed based on feedback from users. It can be used to book tours that range from a couple hours to a full week. Tours can be booked in advance or on the fly. Tour agenda and duration are agreed upon by the guide and traveler, making each CityPal experience unique.

Amotz Brandes, CityPal Co-Founder says he is delighted with the rapid growth of this startup but not surprised at its success. "Literally everyone who hears about CityPals thinks it's an amazing idea. The impetus came from personal experience. I've logged thousands of travel miles and often wished I could connect with locals either to alleviate the boredom of a business trip or to see sites off the beaten track. Clearly, I'm not alone in wanting this." Mr. Brandes believes CityPals' success stems from the effective match between technology and cultural and social trends. More people are on the move than ever before and also at the same time, a lot of us feel socially disconnected. CityPals provides tools for making social connections that would otherwise be just about impossible.

After only seven months online, CityPals has over 10,000 registered users (both guides and travelers) representing hundreds of cities around the world and these numbers are growing daily.
