We’ve traveled the globe and our transformative stay with a local in Brazil sparked the idea for MeetJune. We realized that connecting with people and experiencing genuine culture are the most rewarding parts of travel. We envisioned that technology could be used to help make this connection … and MeetJune was born.
MeetJune democratizes travel by allowing travelers and hosts to connect in meaningful ways via unique local travel experiences. Whether it’s a delicious 3-course dinner in the heart of the Jordaan neighbourhood in Amsterdam or a market stroll through Barcelona’s La Boqueria, MeetJune opens doors to unforgettable travel experiences.
Since we’re a startup and have friends and family all over the world, we thought that we’d do it digitally instead of setting up stands all over the world. As a Dutch-based startup, we thought it'd be cool to tap into our roots and offer a delicious classic Dutch cookie: the stroopwafel.What is a stroopwafel?
Meet some of our hosts
The luxurious 2-person bedroom in Amsterdam Oud-West, located in the heart of Amsterdam and close to both Vondelpark and Rembrandtpark is owned by Bas and Claartje.

Marleen is a true food lover from the Jordaan neighborhood in Amsterdam. As a child she always wanted to try everything that her adventurous parents prepared. She soon figured out that cooking was her passion, something she loves to share with the rest of the world. She really likes to try different things and mainly cooks organic and thus healthy stuff.
Journalist, actor, tour guide ... Communicating and Barcelona are Xavi's passions.

Carola is from the Netherlands but based in Barcelona since 2004. She fell in love with the city and started organizing tours through the old centre and lesser known neighborhoods of Barcelona. Next to being a guide she's a passionate singer and she loves to travel as much as she can while meeting new people and experiencing their culture.
Originally from Brazil, she lived in Spain and the UK before coming to the Netherlands. She loves to travel, cook and meet new people.

You will enjoy a starter, main course and dessert in combination with a good Italian wine. She looks forward to welcome you!
Claartje is a (Dutch) passionate wine expert who loves to take you into the Spanish world of wine during an intimate wine tasting in the heart of Barcelona. Share a sip, a chat and lots of laughter while learning all about wine. Cheers!

|Fancy, shiny things to put on our desks|
|Charles, a gourmet juice barman|
|Keeping the lights on, administrative expenses|
|Hosting / Infrastructure Costs|
|Advertising and marketing costs|
...you mean apart from the satisfaction of helping two hard-working guys who need a bit of extra help to make their vision a success?
