Why is Maxther different?
We want to ensure on quality experiences rather than run of the mill type of experiences and we care about what our Maxperts post! Best of all, if we feel that it can be improve further, we will not hesitate to tell you our quirky ideas for your experience posting, for example, How about learning how to flip a prata for real instead of just eating? PS: Prata is an Indian cuisine that you need to flip it a few times before cooking.
How do you ensure quality?
Quality control is done by testing the experiences personally, ensuring safety processes are in place, checking of licenses validity and acting on negatives reviews immediately. There are also random checks conducted during the conduct of experiences to ensure same quality of experiences are being held. Maxther’s help plans are in place to ensure safety, authenticity, fulfilling and rewarding experiences each time and every time.
