Why did we start Mundooz
During our many travels, we always enjoyed the contact with locals. We always try to stay at local families. We believe that you can only get in touch with local culture and habits if you have contact with locals. In many organized tours from big travel agencies, the traveler doesn’t really have the possibility to get in contact or interact with locals. In today’s world, the sharing economy has become a hot topic. Mundooz wants to be part of this sharing economy by combining the strengths of the locals and bring them in touch with people worldwide.
Many travelers are looking for that one unique and authentic experience while traveling. Many are also interested in getting in touch with local people. These encounters will always create the best memories of their journey. Mundooz embraces this way of traveling and wants to build a bridge between the locals and the travelers.
