From the very beginning, my partners and I at Walk and Explore knew that artificial intelligence would help us create something totally different from what already existed in the travel marketplace.

Travel can expose you to new and amazing experiences. Yet, despite the best laid plans, if you’re new to somewhere these experiences can be hit or miss. Unfamiliar with your surroundings, you can unknowingly bypass an amazing restaurant or memorable local festival. Unaware of local holidays, you can show up to a museum on a day that it’s closed. Or bad weather may ruin your day’s plan for a hike.

Walk and Explore is a smart mobile application that helps avoid missed opportunities and enables users to make the best of their travel experiences. In addition to tourism details, the app provides interesting stories about the city that you’re visiting, and allows you to plan activities and create to-do lists to get the most out of your trip.
