AR City Tour with sightseeing

Customer experience

Education

Visualization

Tourism offers endless possibilities for augmented reality apps. It could no doubt be an interesting way to explore a new city. It could show information and play videos, it could display pre-programmed sightseeing routes or let tourists set a destination, and it will create a sightseeing route that leads there.

Benefits

Sightseeing could become more attractive and especially appealing to younger people. AR tours are also available at any time.

Challenges

These apps could become a threat to city guides, that wouldn’t get booked anymore as they would no longer be needed. Also, many cities regulate guided tours for tourists - could there be a source of conflict?

Take away

Augmented Reality city guides can make for a fun, interactive and flexible way of sightseeing. Especially the flexibility they offer is attractive to all sorts of tourists.
