“Guideo”, a new option for tourism
Tenerife and Costa Adeje are once again at the forefront of using the latest technology for tourism promotions.
At the push of a button, users of “Guideo” can access tourist routes, culture and themes, as well as maps in 2 or 3D. It is currently in App Store for Apple devices but will soon be available for Android.
The Guideo app which provides augmented reality is already available and running for routes in the cities of Cadiz, Seville and Malaga.
This new application, a pioneer in the tourism industry, made its debut in the Canary Islands and specifically Adeje, given the number of visitors to this area of the island.
Mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga was joined by various guests, including the creators Luis López and Nadia Cervera, as well as Francis Ortis, representing Guideo in the Canaries.
Sr. Fraga said they were delighted to host the presentation of a great initiative and believed it would have significant interest for tourists.
The app has significant advantages, including being able to work off-line ie. not needing the internet once it is downloaded. It is also available in Spanish, English and German and is different, modern, fast and easy.
Luis López and Nadia Cervera said Guidea was more than an application, it was a pioneering tool using augmented reality for tourism which would mark a change and a new option when visiting a destination.
