So ...

You're in the middle of Conversation Corps-France, living in Lyon, and your host family has told you it's fine to take a 3-day weekend to Paris.  You text your friend who is on the same program in a small town nearby.  It's a perfect opportunity to get to Paris by 10:00 a.m. on Friday and return to Lyon by 8:00 p.m. Sunday night.  And you have a travel buddy.

So what are you two going to do?

Ah ... you check the online GeoVisions community and chat with people who are already in Paris (or who have also spent a 3-day weekend there) and you check in with our office and your local coordinator about things to do.

Peek AppThen your friend takes out her iPhone and taps her Peek app.

"Peek is your one-stop shop to discover and book amazing activities! The New York Times called Peek 'a site you want to visit again and again', and TIME Magazine selected it as one of its top travel tools. Whether it’s going swimming with sharks or eating your way through a local culinary walking tour, Peek has selected the highest quality activities at the best prices guaranteed. "

When you first open the Peek app, you’ll take a quiz to discover your travel persona. Then you’ll receive personalized activity recommendations, handpicked by Peek just for you! 

This app is the perfect companion to a GeoVisions program.

Don't have an iPhone?  If you have any tablet or laptop while your're traveling, this link will take you to the desktop site and you can use Peek there.  In Paris already?  That's OK.  Book activities on the go.

CEO Ruzwana Bashir was named one of Fast Company's Most Creative People in 2013.

Only London and Paris is listed as cities abroad right now.  Peek has focused on areas of the US for its launch. Give them a little time and more International sites will be available.

What other areas would you like to see Peek add?
