One thing is for certain: the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the tourism industry forever.
And even now, with many places opening back up when it is safe, tourists are unlikely to travel the same as they did before the pandemic.
Many tourists will opt to travel independently and in small groups, rather than in large tour groups. Tourists are less likely to share resources like unhygienic audio guides.
Tourists are also more likely to seek out less-traveled places rather than visiting the biggest tourist places in an area.
But these tourists will still need to find a way to make their way around and learn about local attractions. So how will they do that on their own?
Enter the SmartGuide app.
What is the SmartGuide app?
The SmartGuide app turns every traveler’s phone into a contactless personal tour guide in their pocket.
It guides travelers using audio, geolocation, and augmented reality features such as a live guide. It is designed to guide travelers to places away from the crowds and keep them safe from Covid-19.
The SmartGuide app currently includes 400 travel destinations, all within a single app. Users can easily publish destination guides for free or access hundreds of guides that were specially crafted by our travel experts.
The destination guides include features such as self-guided audio tours and augmented reality features that point out interesting attractions and play engaging stories as you walk around.
The app includes hundreds of maps and itineraries that you can access even when you are offline, so you never have to worry about getting lost.
You can directly book top local experiences on the app too!
