Mytourmate, a new unique and innovative tourism guide application was just released to the Apple appstore by Tourmate LTD. The app offers worldwide audio guided city tours and out-of-city driving tours. Both the app’s interface and the tours are available in a large selection of languages so that the app can offer the best experience for non-English speaking travelers as well.
Each tour in the app consists of a route that goes through many points of interest and tourist attractions. The route can be seen on the on-screen map that shows the user’s current location and the location of all stops in the tour. Using GPS technology the app recognizes that the user arrived at a certain point of interest and automatically starts playing the relevant audio tour guide. The entire tour (including the voice guides and the maps) is downloaded to the customer’s device so that no internet connection is needed on the tour itself. This helps the customers avoid costly roaming charges while vacationing. All tours in the app are created by professional tour guides and are manually reviewed and approved by Tourmate.
The app’s main screen provides several ways to locate tours, there is a search bar that allows searches by city or country and advanced filtering and sorting capabilities to make sure that the users will find the tours that they are interested in. Tours can be filtered according to type, difficulty, accessibility, language, distance from your location and much more.
The Mytourmate platform is built so that tour guides can easily add more tours to the system and get a revenue share from each download of their tours. Tours can be added in any location and language, this ensures that the selection of tours will continue to grow. Businesses can geo-advertise themselves by offering coupons to the Mytourmate customers that are traveling near their business.
“We are very excited to launch Mytourmate. The app and platform were built to simplify and enhance the travel experience” says Mr Boaz Beeri CEO and Founder of Mytourmate. “It is our aim to offer our customers the widest selection of voice guided tours in the language of their choice” he adds.
