Replacing the audio guide system onboard the Big Hop On Hop Off Bus in Prague

The Big Hop On Hop Off Bus in Prague is a popular tourist attraction with a fleet of red buses found in the center of the city. When COVID-19 hit Czechia, like most travel agencies, they worked to maintain the highest hygienic standards which meant tackling the problem of the shared, wireless audio tour guide system onboard. Their solution? Offering SmartGuide's audio tour guide app to their customers as a touchless, safe option.

By offering the SmartGuide app for tours, Big Hop On Hop Off Bus keeps its customers comfortable with the best hygienic solution while offering access to our best Prague tour guide technology for use at their convenience. Implementation of Big Hop On Hop Off Bus content in our audio tour guide app only took a week including test rides for efficiency! This is a solid, successful example of how easy it is to replace those bulky, outdated audio guide systems often found riddled with germs at your favorite attractions with SmartGuide.

The European Commission has already recognized our ability to combat COVID-19 recovery by granting us a Seal of Excellence for turning overtourism in popular European destinations into sustainable tourism with our wireless audio tour guide system. Popular attractions like Sutjeksa, Bosnia and Herzegovina's largest national park, are already utilizing SmartGuide as their official audio tour guide app! From Deutsche Bahn lines in Germany to Catalonia's FGC railway company, SmartGuide is on its way to becoming the premier app for tours on your favorite modes of travel.
