"At Triposo, we are passionate about travel. Everyone on the founding team has traveled to at least 50 countries and we know first-hand what it is like to visit a foreign city where you don't speak the language," said Douwe Osinga, CEO and Cofounder of Triposo and former lead engineer at Google. "We built this guide to help people discover the unexpected and bring adventure and serendipity to even the most calculated travelers."
Triposo's dynamic travel guides include detailed maps and information for more than 15,000 destinations around the world. If you are a planner, you can kick back with your iPad or tablet to scan the magazine-like guides in advance and bookmark your favorite attractions, restaurants and events. Triposo also lets you sync your preferences and plans to your mobile phone so you can easily view your itinerary while you're out and about. If you prefer to travel on the fly, Triposo will consider the season, weather conditions, your personal preferences and even the direction you're facing to provide smart, custom, real-time suggestions of what to do and see.
Triposo Events pulls in up-to-date, public events from Facebook and other sources based on your location. You can find salsa lessons, DJ dance parties, concerts and other events that you won't find in a dusty guidebook or static travel website. Triposo Events helps you explore a new city like a local so you can learn about the culture, meet new people and enjoy unique experiences.
Triposo Hotels helps you find a place to stay, whether you are planning in advance or looking for someplace to stay tonight.
