Idea

App based platform that pair solo & group tourist with local tourist guide & guided package tour in real time like UBER

Current Status

Operation started 5 Historical City in India from Jan 2019. Traction 100 customer and $1000 revenue in the month of Jan-Feb 2019. We hold our business as we revamp app with additional features and payment gateway integration. Re-launch again 15 August 2019.

Our projected revenue $485K by Dec 2019.

Market

Solo & Group tourist

Problem or Opportunity

No real-time “tourist guide” or “guided Package tour” booking facility available in market right now. It is always pre-schedule, you need to book well in advance.
Language is one of the serious problems when non-English speaking tourist (Japanese, German, etc.) visiting tourist places (say Victoria Memorial in Kolkata). They must go with expensive package tour with local tour operator.
Tour operator decides the guide in case of package tour or guided tour. Travelers do not have any role in guide selection. Travelers do not know who will attend them during site seeing. Most of the times they are employee of that tour operator and not authorized guide
There is freelancer “tourist guide” providing guide service but difficult to find / book them as per personal preference when needed.
It is bit difficult to find and book “Licensed / approved tourist guide” by Ministry of Tourism

Solution (product or service)

We developed Mobile app to solve those customer pain points. GuideRatna.com is an app based real time platform that pair solo & Group travelers with local Tourist Guide & guided package tour offered by local tour operators. Travelers can view, in real time in app, how many guides are available at particular tourist place (say at Victoria Memorial in Kolkata). Tourist can see back-ground details of guide like M/F, age, qualification, language speak, licensed/non licensed, etc. Tourist can select and book guide or guided tour package as per preference.
