Place to see (from your couch) : Sherpa Tours

Sherpa Tours is an app offering guided tours with an avatar. When using the app, the guided GPS system is paired with an audio description (made by expert guides) and an AR tour guide will accompany you on you visits on location. However with the pandemic restrictions on travel, people cannot physically visit places like they used to. So the app now takes people on virtual walking tours from the comfort of their own home. 

It’s possible to sit on your sofa at home with your phone and follow along as a Sherpa virtual guide takes you on a video tour of a city. You can also save the tour’s route onto the app and follow the GPS routing at a later date, when you’re able to be in a city in person.

The app covers over 150 tours in over 80 cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa and aim to continually create new tours until they have blanket the world. Walking tours exploring the world’s great cities and sites are between 1 to 3 hours and are created by the best tour guides and MA/PhD-level experts.
