Wanderfly.com can help people find great vacation spots based on other people’s personal travel recommendations. It was founded by Christy Liu, Jorge Trujillo and Evan Schneyer in 2009.
The overall premise behind the site is for people to share their personal approach when it comes to travel planning. Those looking to plan trips can make use of these travel planning recommendations.
As stated on the company’s website, “Wanderfly is the best place to share and discover personalized travel recommendations. We’re here to make travel planning more personal, fun, human, simple and inspiring.”
In 2009, the company received $400,000 in seed funding, and in 2011 it was awarded $1 million in Series A funding from Charles River Ventures, Mentor Tech Ventures and other individual investors.
Wanderfly was acquired by TripAdvisor in October of 2012.[related2][/related2]
