Xoobies is a marketplace for Experiences, where vetted guides (or Xoobies, as we call them) take small groups of guests out on unique, upscale adventures. We connect experience seekers and travelers who are looking for a unique experience with local providers who can provide a once in a lifetime adventure. Lasting a few hours, each experience is designed around the interests of our customers, be it food/wine, architecture, history, etc.

If you are passionate about Chicago, enjoy people, and can lead guests on fun unique excursions and have the personality to connect with people in a meaningful way; come join Xoobies!
