GuRoute BETA

GuRoute is currently in Beta. We'd love to hear your feeedback and ideas. If you are having problems, please contact us. We are not perfect (yet!)

Report a Problem

If you see problems with a particular attraction, you can send us the details or, you can sign in and adopt the attraction. Adopting the attraction will make you the Guru and you can correct it yourself. We are community based - we rely on our Gurus to create and correct attractions. We've started by importing over 300,000 attractions from Wikipedia. But, I'm sure there were problems along the way...

Local Media

We are looking to connect with local radio stations, newspapers and TV stations. We can create special competition pages that you can share with your viewers to run "Best of South Bay" or wherever you happen to be. You can have many competitions... imagine a competition for the best pizza restaurant in your area... or, the best Halloween or Christmas decorations.

Special Interest Groups

Click here to create a collection for your group - maybe you are a local historical society and you want a place where your group can create attractions? Maybe you are into parkour, or paranormal sightings. We'll take all sorts...

Business Owners

Own a hotel or an AirBnB? Why not share what's around your hotel by creating attractions for your local recommendations. Create a Digital Concierge Page for your hotel and drive some business your way...

Examples

Walking/Driving Tours

Go...

A guided tour where GuRoute will direct you from stop to stop and narrate a description of each attraction you arrive at

  • GuRoute uses your phone's GPS to guide you from stop to stop
  • GuRoute automatically detects when you arrive at the next tour-stop and narrates the description of the attraction (Chrome Only)
  • It then sends you on to the next stop

Tours are great to attract people to your town. Even places with no significant points of interest can be lots of fun when part of a tour


Cater tours to your Audience

  • Kid-friendly Tours
    • Focus on what will keep kids interested
    • Instead of parents having to drag their kids around they'll be struggling to keep up
    • Let the kids navigate and they'll get more fun out of finding that historical plaque than they ever would from reading it
  • Accessible tours
  • Short and long tours of the same location

What you need to do...

  1. Click 'Go...'
    Enter a title, description and location for the tour
  2. Add existing attractions OR create new ones and add them to the tour
  3. For existing attractions you can add more information specific to the theme of the tour
  4. You can also add instructions on what to do or see en-route to the next tour-stop
  5. Try out your tour and see how it works...

Mystery Tour

Go...

Create a Mystery Tour

Create a series of clues to show people around a city, neighborhood or whatever place you like...

  • GuRoute will show people clues to get them from attraction to attraction
  • When they reach each stop GuRoute will tell them about the place and give them the next clue
  • Take as long or as you like and explore each location at your leisure

Scavenger Hunt

Go...

Create a Scavenger Hunt

Create a series of questions that people have to answer. The answers can all be discovered by walking aroung the area, looking for clues.

  • How many beers are on tap at Michael Collin's Irish Bar?
  • What's the name of the oldest building on main streeet?
  • Show a picture of some public art and ask them what it is called
  • Clues can have numeric or multiple choice answers
