Tushky is an online marketplace for free time. Well, leisure planning sucks. When you feel hungry, you call a restaurant; you want to book a holiday destination, you go to expedia; you want to list or access local places to stay, you go to airbnb. Where do you go if you want to find interesting things to do in your locality? Where do you go if you have an interesting hobby to share or an activity to offer?
For that, there is Tushky. At Tushky, we discover and curate activities and activity providers which stand out, give them a good inventory back-end and an activity booking engine to make activity booking as easy as movie ticket booking for the users. Anyone can sell (monetize) his/her free time by offering activities & experiences to residents and travellers at Tushky's online marketplace.
