mailto:sgc@southgatectr.caWe've recently received information from the Older Adults Centres’ Association of Ontario (OACAO) about a company called Heygo. Heygo is a free-to-join, pay-what-you-tip virtual travel platform with over 3,000 interactive, live-streaming tours all around the world.

Heygo started as a way for co-founders John and Liam to keep exploring new places. As avid travellers themselves, they wanted to help people stay connected with the world and for those in the travel industry to continue doing what they love.

They believe that travel is an incredibly important way to break down cultural barriers and understand the world through other people’s eyes. They also recognize it is often a privilege reserved for the few. For many people, hopping on a plane half-way around the world is out of reach and comes with serious consequences for our planet’s health.

John and Liam realised that there needed to be a way to embrace the culture of other countries in an environmentally conscious way; to still travel when family obligations makes it difficult to get away; and to keep exploring even when an injury or disability means travelling is harder.

So that’s why they created Heygo - a travel specific live-streaming platform. One that would allow local guides to share the places they know best with the hope that it can bring people around the world closer together.

Everyday there seem to be about 40 different tours that you can join. We thought that this one might be of interest to you, with Halloween coming up at the end of the month.

And here's one of Sam's stellar reviews to give you a better idea of what to expect:

''Sam is an amazing storyteller who weaves some gruesome history into her stories about old Edinburgh while making it super entertaining. I loved seeing some of the old city - the architecture of some of the buildings is incredible. Looking forward to doing more tours of Edinburgh and other parts of Scotland with Sam.''

Heygo is all about bringing world travel to everyone, so please feel free to invite your community — staff, volunteers, friends, and family are all welcome. It makes for a great group activity and bonding experience.

If you have any questions or need a little help getting started, please let Alessandro Frau, Senior Account Executive know with a reply. Happy to send you a video that explains everything.
