While traveling, one of the most interesting things you can do is hire a tour guide. Guides know a lot about their areas and can introduce you to areas of a city or venues you might not have known about on your own. You can even get to see non-tourist parts of the area.
Unfortunately, finding one of those tour guides can be difficult because they can only be in one place at a time. With Latitude, tour guides can create virtual tours, allowing them to be in more than one place at a time. Tourists can even create their own tours by combining individual venues from different guides into a single trip.
Latitude is currently curating tours and will be launching soon for iOS and Android.
