How and when did you create Audio Guide Georgia?
2 years ago, I realized that number of tourists was increasing. Most of them could not afford to hire a guide, so that they had lack of information. I decided to search for a customized method of audio guide in the world. I developed the idea, created design and business plan, which won Enterprise Georgia prize. I hired professionals in January and implemented project is ready in market.
What’s the purpose of the application?
The main purpose is to share verified, high-quality information of Georgia sightseeings to get familiar with our culture, art and history. We found quite practical and innovative way for that. Application can also contribute in tourism development.
