Free Touring is a 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 (tip) each tourist considers the tour deserves. The tourist decides the price of the freetour after receiving the service, and pays “after show”. This is the revolution towards fair, collaborative, low-cost “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 tour that, beforehand, you do not know if it will fit your needs? Don’t worry, we’re the ultimate low-cost 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 tour. 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 service is worth it, and you only pay after the tour finishes (Free Touring don’t earn any money from this voluntary tip). Finally, rate both guide and freetour inside the app! You’ll contribute to a better community.
★ We offer a quality catalog of guides and guided tours in exchange of tips, 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 many kinds of tours: historic, artistic, gastronomic, architecture, business… And we’ll include many more categories soon!
Are you a professional/full-time guide working for a guided visits 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 and in a low-cost way? 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 low-cost way to recruit them and execute your own guided visits? Free Touring 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 tour, available slots/seats, which clothes you’ll be wearing, etc. Take the control of your low-cost 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 in Madrid. 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!
★ You publish your routes for free. You'll only pay a small fee if they’re successful (with 3 or more tourists enrolled in the Free Touring platform when they take place).
★ Launching promotion: you don’t pay anything for the tours you create… regardless of the number of people enrolled in them! Try the app in Madrid, you won’t regret!
