Connecting travelers to deliver custom travel experiences for vacations

Looking for: Biz developer, Designer, Developer, Engineer, Product manager, Sales person
Booking sites have pretty much eliminated the need for travel agents, we can book anything we want online.  However, they don't solve the need for booking and creating a complete travel itinerary from a trusted source.  We can book flights, hotels, but research is still required to know what you're booking, so you have to spend time reading a travel book, blog, maybe asking friends, hoping that they like to travel in similar fashion as you.  To plan and book a 2-3 week vacation with multiple stops still takes a lot of time, not to mention researching food and sites to see.

I want to create a platform where travelers can be connected with one another to recommend places to stay, eat and see for a trip they are planning.  Someone planning a trip will be matched up with travelers that have already been there and create a itinerary and suggest places to stay, eat, see and give insights, just like a travel agent.
