You’re in Sydney and you feel like finding the best cup of java and only see the most stunning of sights….what do you do? Plenty of discovery apps exist to help put your plan together, plenty of to-do list apps exist to help make sure you hit up all the spots, and plenty of travel apps exist giving your guided tours throughout the city. But is there a best a one, or one that is only filled with details from locals who know best?
Excursions is a new travel discovery app providing short lists of places and recommendations created by locals who know best. You start by telling Excursions what you feel like doing, and the best excursions are then brought to you tailored to your taste, and then let Excursion seamlessly guide you through your journey with offline turn-by-turn navigation.
Think of Excursion as a travel companion. It is a fantastic tool for sharing and discovering local knowledge, as well as documenting travel experiences. It picks up where other travel Apps left off, allowing people to truly experience recommendations with offline guided navigation between points of interest.
We think travel apps and travelling in general will benefit greatly from global broadband support at an affordable rate. But apps like Excursions helps in the mean time by making navigation of new areas possible with offline GPS. The problem we think still comes into play when you want to go through on the spot discovery and not rely on what you may have planned when Wi-Fi was around.
Excursions is available on the App Store right now if you’re looking to discovery a new city or your own city with tailored recommendations from locals.
