How to use Airbnb to organize trips full of experiences

Airbnb is a platform that allows you to search for houses, apartments and even rooms for travelers. In addition to renting the accommodation, the app contains tools for users to explore the final destination with tips and purchase unforgettable experiences - such as a walk through traditional bars, a surf lesson or something related to gastronomy.

The following tutorial teaches you how to plan an unforgettable trip with the Airbnb app for Android and iPhone (iOS). It is worth mentioning that, for now, the only Brazilian city that has content in the "Experiences" tab is Rio de Janeiro. However, it is possible to see different schedules in other places of the world.
