FAQ

What is Dryftwell?

Dryftwell is a personalized recommendation platform for things to do, eat, drink while traveling. We like to think of it like having an old friend in a new city. When you get incredible recs from someone who gets you, that’s usually the key to a memorable trip. We’re making that possible for every trip you take.

Who is Dryftwell for?

Dryftwell is for those who are looking for suggestions for their upcoming trip. Instead of spending time looking through instagram, blogs and trip advisor, we help you find the best things for you to do while on your trip.

When should I sign up for Dryftwell?

You should sign up once you know you are going on a trip. We don’t need exact dates, but it is helpful for the local to generally know the month you’re planning on going so we can recommend based on weather and seasonal events.

Who is a Dryftwell local?

Our locals are deeply knowledgable about their city. They curate a set of unique recommendations just for you based on your trip information and interests.

Do I choose my local?

Nope! We make that decision and we match you to the best local for you based on your travel style and the information you give us in the quiz.

What info do I provide to my local?

You’ll fill out our quiz to get started with details about you, your trip, your group, when you’re going, what you love to do and your interests, and any must do things. With that info, your local will start their first round of recommendations.

How many recommendations do I get?

You will get 2 rounds of recommendations -- the first, then you give your local feedback, and then the second round. At the end, you'll have saved enough places to eat, drink and explore for your entire trip.

How do I communicate with my local?

You can leave feedback after your first round of recommendations. Let your local know if you have any specific questions or requests at that point.

What trip lengths do you support?

You can sign up for a weekend or week trip.

How much does it cost?

Lucky you! Right now we are in beta, so the service is free. We just ask for your feedback at the end so we can improve. Sign up while its still free :)

Do you book the recommendations for me?

Nope, we focus solely on the recommendations so we do not provide any booking services at the moment.
