New Travel App Virtually Guides World Cup Fans Through Rio de Janeiro

London-based company Go To Travel Guides has announced the release of “Go To Rio”, a free Rio de Janeiro visual travel guide app for iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets.

The app allows users to take a visual tour of South America’s most popular city through a collection of full-screen HD photos and videos, as well as helping tourists and Brazil-bound World Cup fans to plan their own Rio de Janeiro trip by using the app’s pre-planned itineraries, detailed maps, tour bookings and hotel booking features.

With the FIFA World Cup under way, the world’s eyes are on Brazil and Rio de Janeiro in particular, which will host the World Cup final.

The company’s founders – Nat and Mase, a husband and wife team – are excited about the release of their new app. Talking about the app’s features, Go To Travel Guides’ founder Mase said,

“Go To Rio provides people with a free and easy way to discover exactly what Rio de Janeiro is all about. By swiping through our Rio photo guide, our users can easily imagine themselves in the thick of the action in this buzzing city.

For World Cup fans who are already in Rio or tourists who are planning a trip to the city, Nat and I have recently returned from Rio, done all the research for you and compiled a Top 20 list of the most popular attractions to visit, restaurants to dine at, bars to socialise at and nightclubs to party at.”

Doubling up as both a travel inspiration app and a travel guide, its users can enjoy:

• Browsing an informative photo guide filled with high-res, full-screen photos of Rio

• Swiping through the Top 20 attractions, restaurants, bars and nightclubs in Rio

• Reading travel tips from a his & hers perspective

• Taking virtual tours of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana and more

Go To Rio truly allows users to explore Rio de Janeiro without leaving their home. Remember, you don’t have to go to Rio to go to Rio!
