Travelers today are avid consumers of video as a trip-planning tool and Cyprus-based company Vidtur aims to take advantage of this demand by offering high-quality, localized video guidebooks. With many travelers moving beyond traditional paper guidebooks, Vidtur allows users to access professional videos tailored to specific popular locations that will help them to plan their next trip.

Vidtur explains that it is easier for a user to watch a video guide than it is to sort through the mass amount of text on many travel blogs, making videos ideal for gaining essential information to help travelers do more and spend less, while making every minute of their vacation count. Through these easily accessible localized video guides, Vidtur allows users to get an up close and personal view of their travel destination before they even arrive.

While not the only video guide service available, the advantage of Vidtur is that it fills an important void among professional videos by offering their travel guides in a multitude of different languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, German, Mandarin, Chinese and Italian. Currently Vidtur has over 700 multi-lingual videos that span 30 cities across the globe, making their services easily accessible for the majority of travelers. As travelers continue to ditch traditional guidebooks for their smart phones, localized video guides may be the new way to plan your next trip to some of the world’s most popular destinations.
