Travel planning can be a hassle: you switch between dozens of apps to put screenshots and links together. When you actually get to the place, it can be more of a headache to move around. Even when you had everything planned out, you can still miss out on things that you wish you could have experienced.
Uber Tour helps you with personalized travel planning, on-demand transportation, and interactive touring guidance, all working seamlessly together to assist you throughout your journey. It responds to your spontaneous ideas or change of plans and offers contextual recommendations that work for you, so you won’t be standing in the middle of the streets trying to figure out what to do.

How It Works
You begin by picking themes that you are interested in this leisure trip. From there, the app breaks them down them into recommended places for you to choose.
