Travel Tech

Digital gadgets replace the need for human tour guides

Implications - Physical interaction is now often left out of the human communication equation due to the increased use of virtual exchange. This concept has even extended to tourism, an area where the need for a human tour guide has become often unnecessary. With tourist-focused apps and digital maps that are accessible anywhere, traveling consumers can now customize their own itinerary and figure out where to go based on their own personal needs.
