Welcome to Tuki!
Tuki is a social venue based on a combined search in several social-traveling and sharing platforms, and which is designated to plan your trip in the lowest cost possible. Tuki is assimilating a customized and combined search in the following platforms and based on their information:

(collectively, the “Platforms”).
The Tuki search is conducted based on information provided by the user - you. Therefore, Tuki may be deemed only as a search and recommendation platform, and nothing more. Tuki does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any hosting or transportation services.
Tuki is also a platform to create and manage user blogs, wherein registered users may share their experiences and opinions, share trips plans, photos, videos, and other user content. Tuki is also being used to have a text peer-to-peer chat between registered users, which can be used to communicate and to share photos and videos and personal information such as location and recommendations with one another and create a friends’ list.
Moreover, we are constantly changing and improving Tuki. We may add or remove features, and we may suspend, limit or stop a certain function on Tuki altogether.
Search and Recommendation only. No other promises or warranties.
