Visiting the major tourist hotspots in Europe during the peak summer months can be a terrifying experience for many travelers, especially when you have to deal with the suffocating crowd getting in your way to your favorite bucket list locations.
Imagine walking towards the Fontana di Trevi in Rome to toss your coin into the famed water fountain or exploring the beautiful scenery around the San Marco Plaza. You’d have to squeeze through the crowds during peak season!
For the smart traveler, the best travel season starts with September as the temperatures cool down. Most people return back to work and prices get more friendly in most cities across Europe. This year, there is one more reason to set out on a trip: SmartGuide has just released over 300 new destination guides in just one app! Moreover, all the new tours are available for free until 31/9/2019.
SmartGuide is a digital tour guide with offline navigation for travelers who want to explore at their own pace, listen to immersive stories prepared by local guides and discover hidden gems off the beaten path. Content is accessible via an interactive Android and iOS app that utilizes geolocation, audio and augmented reality, thereby helping travelers navigate cities without needing the help of a physical guide. SmartGuide is focused on changing the way people travel around the world, by helping them immersively experience different destinations with a greater sense of freedom and independence.
SmartGuide is currently helping over 100,000 travelers experience travel in the most remarkable ways without the usual complexity that comes with traveling. Take Peter, for example, a Front End Developer from Germany who has presently explored over 60 cities via the SmartGuide app and made a decision to not just tick off cities on his bucket list, but also to create memories that he believes would “last a lifetime.”
Peter, who is a frequent user of the SmartGuide app, is enjoying the perks that come with traveling and working remotely, enjoying longer holidays and seeing a lot of his travel goals achieved, says about SmartGuide: “For me, traveling light only with my mobile phone is essential. I do not want to carry thick guidebooks or maps along, so SmartGuide is a perfect companion for me. All I need to get around a city and explore is in my phone, even when the wifi goes off!” – Peter
SmartGuide is consistently revolutionizing travel and giving travelers more value, as they create memorable experiences on their various journeys across the world.
At a press briefing in early 2019 and upon receiving seed funding, Jan Dolezal, CEO and Co-Founder promised that the funding received will help “to expand into 300 destinations, enhance the technology and to build up strategic partnerships with attractions, tour operators, transportation companies and other partners whose customers benefit from a modern guide.”
In less than 6 months, SmartGuide has been able to successfully deliver its promise of expansion to not just its ever-growing base of users but also to investors who have consistently believed in the future of SmartGuide.
“We have partnered with Regiojet to turn commodity transportation into memorable tour experiences for over 12 million RegioJet passengers. With a massively growing tourist population in the city of Prague, SmartGuide has been able to channel over 30% of tourists visiting the city with SmartGuide to other surrounding neighborhoods, thereby helping tourists explore more experiences and scenic routes” Vaclav Jurcicek, Head of Business Development.
With this development, SmartGuide can expand its foothold to many more cities around the world, and invariably to more travelers all across the globe. At this rate, SmartGuide is on track to becoming the definitive digital audio guide with the widest coverage by 2020 as they are underway to receiving Series A funding in early 2020.
