Farol City Guides, the smart “travel buddy” app for short city-break tourists, presented today its Android version for the hometown of the “Farol” technology, the city of Darmstadt.
The new version, currently available for 18 popular European cities, offers in addition to the personalised sightseeing itineraries, access to a wealth of detailed information matching users’ individual preferences, as well as a fine selection and reviews on restaurants, cafes, bars, etc., everything accessible offline.
Farol City Guides is a unique app that enables the creation of fully personalised tours fitted to the individual preferences and exact time available to tour around in a city. Farol is therefore the perfect travel app for business travellers with still some hours left after a meeting, or to independent tourists on a weekend-city-break trip. The guide’s artificial intelligence not only enables fully personalised tours, but also adapts in real-time to the visitor’s profile.
The personalised suggested itineraries offer detailed insights and descriptions about the monuments and best restaurants, cafes and utilities.
“Handling the large quantity of information available in the city in which people stay only during short periods of time is a common problem for the travellers in Darmstadt.”, explained Bruno Fernandes, the CEO of LatitudeN GmbH, the German-based company behind the technology. “Currently available travel apps provide users only with standard and dispersed information. Also on the internet there is an enormous amount of information to search through. It takes often too much time to find exactly what you are interested in, particularly if you just have half a day, or maybe one, during a business trip, or a short visit. Farol City Guides solves this, by providing outstanding travel experiences to the user”, concluded Mr. Fernandes.
Farol City Guides is also available for the following destinations for €3.99: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Darmstadt, Helsinki, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, Oslo, Paris, Porto, Prague, Rome, Warsaw and Zagreb.
The travel app is available for download on Google Play and very soon on the iTunes store. You can also visit the official website.
