About ViaTravelers

Introducing ViaTravelers: A vision brought to life by the founder, Kyle Kroeger. In a world overflowing with travel blogs and websites, Kyle discovered a void during a trip to Italy. Via is Italian for “street.” Many people travel for landmarks in big cities, but it’s hard to experience the real city this way.

While many sites cater to budget travelers, urban explorers, or luxury seekers, they often missed the mark on delivering authentic, feet-on-the-ground itineraries essential for immersive travel experiences.

Fueled by his passion, Kyle created ViaTravelers to transcend traditional travel content. We are devoted to providing not just words, but a sensory journey that enables you to see, hear and feel the essence of every destination.

This passion has grown beyond just one person, which is part of our mission, that real personal travel experience cannot be truly documented through only one person’s lens. We’ve developed a passionate team of travel experts that truly love exploring the world, and we love telling our stories to our readers firsthand.

Our Mission

At ViaTravelers, we are passionately committed to transforming travel into the most immersive experience possible. We believe in the power of walking and cycling through the heart of cities, embracing the unexpected, and uncovering hidden gems around every corner.

Our mission is to inspire you to step off the tour bus, venture down intriguing alleys, and immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of our world’s cultures. With every step, we promise to guide you toward good times, unique discoveries, and a lifetime of unforgettable memories. Together, let us redefine exploration and celebrate the beauty of getting lost in the journey.

We aim to be your most trusted source for travel recommendations, with a steadfast commitment to editorial independence. Our team of dedicated writers and editors thoughtfully curate each suggestion based on extensive research, hands-on exploration, and in-depth analysis.

We only share recommendations that truly embody the essence of immersive travel experiences, ensuring you can confidently embark on your next adventure. A great example of this is our dedication to photography and videography, which can be seen through our YouTube channel as well as in our travel guides. Trust in our unwavering passion for discovery and our dedication to unveiling the most authentic and enriching journeys the world has to offer.

Our Approach

ViaTravelers was founded with a vision to become the most trusted source for immersive travel experiences based on places our team of travel experts has personally been and visited. Our revenue is generated through advertising and various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may earn commissions on products purchased through our links to travel booking sites, tours, tickets, and online products. However, our recommendations are always based on independent experience, research, analysis, interviews, and first-hand expertise.

There is no incentive for us to visit destinations. We personally travel to locations with a camera in hand to document what it’s truly like visiting our favorite places as well as newfound adventures around the world. In fact, if a reader returns or cancels a booking due to dissatisfaction or a poor recommendation, we receive no affiliate commission. This fair system keeps us dedicated to prioritizing our readers’ needs above all else. Our editorial standards and personal travel experiences drive the decisions we make, never influenced by affiliate deals or advertising relationships.

Our meticulous travel guides are the result of weeks or months of planning, documenting, and years of experience. We draw upon our own expertise but also collaborate with an array of subject-matter experts, including local guides, cultural enthusiasts, and seasoned travelers.

By examining other people’s perspectives, we ensure that our recommendations resonate with real people who have firsthand experience with the destinations and activities we feature. We also recognize that our personal interest in travel may vary from person to person so we strive to include additional perspectives within each travel guide to provide a multi-faceted angle of travel.

In a world where extravagant, feature-laden options are often perceived as the ultimate goal, ViaTravelers is committed to recommending high-quality experiences that justify their value without pushing unnecessary extras.

Should you need assistance in navigating any travel-related challenges, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our team consists of intelligent and inquisitive individuals who are passionate about addressing our readers’ questions and providing valuable insights. We are dedicated to helping you make the most of your travel experiences, every step of the way.

Join us on this journey as we uncover the most authentic and enriching travel adventures the world has to offer. See you out there.
