Tourplus began in 2014 when Rickson met Kyle during a trip to California. Kyle hosted Rickson and showed Rickson around in San Francisco like a local. Rickson need not bother with the online scattered information and reviews anymore. Later, both founders decided to return to their home country – Malaysia and started up a business to help solve problems in travel. Therefore, the birth of Tourplus. Now, thousands of hosts and travelers choose to create free Tourplus accounts so they can list their services and hire tour guides as local friends while traveling.
