What makes us different?

Personalised Itineraries

Fluid and adaptable itineraries based on your interests, guiding you between stops. By taking care of the details, the only thing you have to do is get lost in the moment of exploration.

Social Profiles

Become a pioneer ahead of the crowds, and know that you can share the most unique, and authentic places within your own city with your friends, family and fans.

Find Inspiration

You might be stuck in the office, but satisfy your adventurous itch by browsing through tips to help plan your day out, find inspiration and begin building your personal bucket list.

How does it work?

KOMPAS impacts the way people explore by moving away from the existing one-dimensional city guides, towards a fluid, handpicked collection of places that adapts to you personality over time using deep learning. All of this is neatly packaged into a simple, easy-to-use mobile application that saves you time and effort, offering that reliable guiding hand when you’re out exploring the unknown in your backyard.
