Free Touring is a free collaborative mobile app which puts tourists in touch with guides to organise freetours with no other intermediaries (right now, only in Madrid, but in many other cities and countries very soon). A freetour is a guided visit carried out by a guide in exchange of the amount of money each tourist considers the guide deserves after attending the walking route. The tourist decides the price of the freetour after receiving the service, and pays “after show”. This is a revolution towards collaborative “tourism 2.0”!Are you visiting a new city? Do you want to know all its secrets and best plans during the visit? However, why would you have to pay for a guided visit that, beforehand, you do not know if it will fit your needs? Don’t worry, Free Touring is the ultimate solution for the tourist:
★ Use this mobile app to find all kind of available freetours by date, city and language. Select the one you like most and enroll yourself and your companions! When the time has come, the freetour will take place: be punctual and enjoy the guided visit. Afterwards, you can give a voluntary tip to your guide, in hand; this way, you, as a tourist, are the one who decides how much the guide and route are worth it, and you only pay after the route finishes (we do not earn any money from these voluntary payments). Finally, rate both guide and freetour inside the app! You’ll contribute to a better community.
★ We offer a quality catalog of guided tours and guides, based on ratings and comments provided by the users after attending a guided visit. Users who give the best of themselves during the service will be the best rated!
★ You can find any kind of free walking tours: historic, artistic, gastronomic, architectonic, business… And we’ll include many more categories soon!
Are you a professional/full-time guide working for a freetours company? Do you want to have a parallel channel to find and acquire new clients for your current tours?Are you a history/arts lover who wants to share its knowledge and the secrets of a city, from time to time? Do you want to practice languages, know new people, improve speech skills, boost local business and make a name for yourself in your city? Do you feel you have things to share with foreign or local people but you do not have a way to recruit them and execute your own guided tours? This platform is the solution!
★ Any professional/full-time or potential amateur/casual guide can publish its own freetours in our platform.
★ Create customised tours. You decide the city, time, schedule, places you’re going to visit, kind of route, available slots/seats, which clothes you’ll be wearing, etc. Take the control of your business!
★ You’ll be able to monitor who is going to attend your freetours in real time.
★ You’ll be rated and commented in the platform. This way, you’ll have a complete and updated portfolio (your own profile) which will allow you to make a name for yourself as a guide in your city. Do you think you’re good at explaining the Austrian part of Madrid? Prove it creating your own freetour and earn the best ratings, comments and tips!
★ Instead of paying for each tourist attending your guided tours (this is how freetours companies work nowadays), you’ll only pay a small fee each time you publish a freetour in the app.
★ Free trial promotion for publishing tours: One free month or 5 free tours! Afterwards, 5 €/route (9 €/route after the 25th published freetour). Try the app, you won’t regret!
