Wise Guides - City Travel Guides Written By Locals & Travels Around The World

Wise Guides Group
Download now to begin exploring, planning, experiencing and sharing City Guides based on the unique perspective of like-minded travellers and locals from around the world.

Whether its 24 hours in London for business, shopping in Paris, a foodies journey to Barcelona, a cultural escape to New York, backpacking through South East Asia, Nightlife in Sao Paulo or a road trip along the East Coast of Australia Wise Guides has taken the guesswork out of your next trip.

Wise Guides point of difference largely lies in its personalized approach to its guides allowing users the ability to find like-minded travel recommendations from real people with similar travel motivations building a trusted community to help plan your next trip.

When exploring City Guides or the Photo Stream users simply like places mentioned within a guide for it to be added to their “To Do List” and begin creating their ultimate Wise Guides itinerary. The "To Do List” allows the user to create an itinerary of places they want to experience accessible at any time from the iPhone App.
These To Do Lists are available to the user even when they have no cellular reception, which is often the case when travelling abroad. The To Do List provides a detailed map, as well as pictures and descriptions of places they have added from other users’ guides. The places added to these Lists can be separated into individual categories, for example ‘Sights and Attractions’, ‘Restaurants’ or ‘Bars and Nightlife’. The ability to access all your required information about what to do in a particular city means that Wise Guides truly is the ultimate companion for locals and travellers alike.

The benefit of using Wise Guides, is that users are receiving suggestions from sources they trust. You can get to know another user by exploring their profile and reading their city guides. Through this process, the problem of not knowing who is suggesting places to visit is alleviated. One of the most common problems with travel research is not knowing the source providing information about a particular city. After all a 25 year old male probably wont share the same travel motivations as a 50 year old female posting travel advice on an online forum.

Wise Guides alleviates a need to carry around heavy guidebooks like the Lonely Planet when travelling, as users have a wealth of information on their smart phones, and from a range of different sources rather than just a handful of writers. Furthermore To Do Lists are available for offline use, which means that when you are walking through a city you can view descriptions and photos of suggested places as well as see them on the map, and get directions to each place regardless of whether you are connected to a mobile network.
