Traveling to a new place can be overwhelming. What landmarks should you see? What streets should you visit? What's the story behind that statue, shop or cobblestone street you're walking on? The list of puzzling travel questions goes on and on.

Of course, you can sign up for a guided tour or enlist a local to show you around. But why even bother if there's an app that can show you all the famous sights and at your own pace to boot!

This cool app will do all that, as it personally connects you to an expert travel guide located where you want to vacation next! Go beyond the usual tourist hot spots, learn more about local spots and have a "local" expert guide you through your next adventure.
