What problem are you solving? Independent, confident travelers hate looking like tourists and don’t want to be constrained by the schedule of a traditional group tour. FollowAlong delivers that same great content but on your own schedule, the way you want to use it.
What is your solution? FollowAlong is a mobile app that curates a library of interactive, geotagged walking tours and adventures. Users can choose a city and category and start exploring without needing to join a cramped, impersonal tour group. The FollowAlong app guides users stop by stop and provides inside information and trivia along the way.
Target Market Free independent travelers, women travelers, city explorers, local influencers
