Imagine the most disappointing scenarios of what could go wrong during that dream trip you’re currently planning. To give you some hints, we decided to ask passerby all over Europe about their most disillusioning travel experiences. Here is what they said:
Maria, 22: “While I was having a great time with my friends in Bristol, we ended up in an almost empty pub, where musty atmosphere and arrogant service already managed to make us regret entering. I wish I had picked the pub across the street. A total mood killer for the rest of the day!”
Artjoms, 34: “I still remember our first trip to Paris with my current wife, girlfriend back then. I wanted to surprise her with a romantic dinner by the Eiffel Tower. I thought that the cosy restaurant I googled about, would be the best place to propose to her. However, when the waiter continued speaking French even though we spoke English to him, I already knew, that it’s the beginning of a disaster for the evening. As a result we got a wrong order and no apologies. Such ignorance…”
Thiago, 26: “I was ready for explosive beats and rocking Sevilla’s dance floors, but then, it turned out, that the club, I read tens of promising reviews about, sucked. The DJ played cheesy music and I could hardly find a girl to dance with. It all looked like a sausage party!”
Sounds somehow familiar?😅🤦♂️ Let’s face the reality: most of us have gone through similar scenarios and we would all like to avoid such places. Arduous research based on irrelevant information from five years ago does not appear practical anymore. Google lacks representative data based on real time social signals. Why would anyone who goes out need a review from a couple of months ago? We would love to know who is in the place at this specific moment, what is the vibe there before we end up in a place which does not correspond with our expectations.The reality is not a big solid mass. It changes constantly and that is what a perfect city guide platform should take into account.
Let’s think about the convenience. Majority of us does not feel like googling tens of websites just to get a general idea about a place. We usually enjoy the essence of most relevant information in one place; at hand. Luckily for us, some smart people came up with the concept of apps.
But then, again, even if convenient to use, most of them are full of outdated reviews and pictures. At the end, an Anton, who’s an ardent queer basher accidentally ends up at an all-male gay party. Reason? He got inspired to go by a picture of ladies posted a few weeks earlier.
Travelling and nights out would be so much easier and fun if we could see the pictures posted in real time from real users within an app.
It would be practical and efficient to instantly get recommendations about best places to go generated by a smart filter. In search of a city gems, we would love to filter the spots according to location, time of a day etc. At the top of all, it is always exciting to see some extra features that at the end often turn out to be crucial such as men-and-women ratio inside a place.
Now what if there already exists a solution that meets all of those needs?
