Chinese P2P platform for tour guide services Nilai.com announced the completion of a 15 million yuan ($2.3 million USD) pre-A round of funding on Tuesday. The funding was led by Beijing Fuyuan and will be used to improve the app and enhance the marketing outreach to attract more local guides in overseas countries.

Nilai.com, whose Chinese name translates to “Are you traveling abroad (你来出境游)”, is a platform that matches Chinese tourists with local tour guides in other countries. The tour guide sets the price on Nilai.com, which can vary based on different factors, such as car rentals, the tour itinerary, and more. Prices range from 300 yuan to 1200 yuan ($46 ~ $185 USD).

“Our local guides speak Chinese and the local language. We do not care whether it is a Chinese or a foreigner. Anyone who is familiar with the local tourism resources or has extensive travel experience and has ability to integrate into the local culture can register as our local guide,” Li Lin, co-founder of Nilai.com, told TechNode.
