2) User Profile
We recommend you start by filling out your User Profile. User Profiles that have a clear profile picture and a detailed “About” description help locals learn more about you and if you’d be a good fit for their tour or activity.

3) Account Info
Setting up your account and banking info is also a must before you can start booking tours and activities.

Wandaroo does not have access to or store any banking or credit card information from any user. All transactions, payouts, refunds, etc are handled through Stripe’s trusted payment platform.

Once you’ve completed setting up your account information you can now officially book tours and activities. All transactions are handled through Stripe and payments will not process until your guide has confirmed your reservation request.

4) Browse Experiences
Now that you have the basics completed, you are free to start browsing tours and activities. To browse tours and activities, simply click in the search field in the header and type your destination. All results from your destination will be listed on the search page.
