Visit Savannah, Savannah’s business unit of the Chamber of Commerce, wanted to create foreign language tours for international visitors so that they could learn about and experience the wealth of history and stories that Savannah is known for.  Their 7 free foreign language tours were created using the App Builder Platform and they are available through the Savannah Experiences App on iOS and Android.  


What’s in the App?

Users can choose their own route, or follow the recommended tour route that leads them through Savannah’s beautiful historic district, in and around famous landmarks, museums, and shopping and dining options. Users can choose from seven languages including Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.  Navigate the content through the detailed stop menu or tour map which links to a GPS tour map. The tour works offline, too, so users don’t have to worry about needing a network or wi-fi connection.

Local Impact

While the city of Savannah has such a diverse selection of tours to choose from, the foreign language tours in the Savannah Experiences App are set apart from all the others because they are GPS enabled tours in international guests’ native language.  Fox 28 in Savannah aired a story about this new exciting app and how it is tapping into a stronger engagement with international guests:
