Nearly everyone's got a smartphone - so what better way for people to explore your site than with a phone self-guided tour?
Whether it's navigating between rooms, exploring streets or wandering around a heritage ruin, our mobile phone GPS tours help visitors discover your venue's highlights.
But ExplorAR smartphone tours don't just give people directions: our web app guided tours bring a new dimension to your venue, adding fun and interest to your visitors' day out. Take a look below at our phone tours to see what we offer.
Added value: Our smartphone walking tours aren't just a digital information board: they use technology such as GPS, 360 virtual tour panoramas, 3D models, video and children's quizzes to tell your site's story in a new way.
Versatile: They're ideal for museums, churches and cathedrals, business premises, festival sites, conferences, heritage sites, university campuses and even walking tours for an entire city. Whatever the size, we'll meet your needs and budget.
No downloads: Our GPS phone app tours run in your users' internet browser, meaning no download is necessary. Users simply navigate to the webpage. It also makes them simple to use - great fun for the whole family.
Many app development companies simply use text and pictures. But ExplorAR uses all the
technological advantages of smartphones to bring your information to life.
Phone app walking tours are a key part of your customers' visit, so you want to make sure your visitors are impressed. That's where we come in.
There are lots of smartphone tour app providers out there, so what makes us different?
Every location is unique, so we're flexible. We create everything ourselves,
from app coding and 3D model creation to shooting images and video.
Our phone app guided tours can be tailored to all sorts of venues, such as museums, churches and cathedrals, heritage sites and ruins, and whole cities.
