  1. What I would kill to find out is whether the younger travelers are turning to cheap walking tours of the sort that we sell at walki-talki.com. We only cover Europe so far, but US destinations are planned.

    We are one of about 50 companies undertaking this task globally, and all of us would like to know if this budget way of walking cities is getting any traction at all at a time when the dollar is so weak.
