Cape Point Route and Tourism Radio launch travel guide app
Cape Point Route has long been a trusted name when it comes to information about where to go, what to do, where to stay and where to eat around the Cape. Through our new app, we’re hoping to provide visitors with an easy way to access this information on the fly. – Sally Grierson, Cape Point Route director
The interactive Cape Point Route travel guide app features comprehensive information about more than 80 points of interest around the Cape Peninsula. These include top-class restaurants and accommodation facilities; various activities for young and old; and a host of cultural and historical attractions that are ‘must-sees’ for any visitor to the Cape.
With Cape Town’s traditional summer tourist high season well on its way, Sally Grierson, Cape Point Route director, says the company is hoping to offer visitors a travel guide app like no other.
‘Cape Point Route has long been a trusted name when it comes to information about where to go, what to do, where to stay and where to eat around the Cape. Through our new app, we’re hoping to provide visitors with an easy way to access this information on the fly, whether it’s for holiday planning and research before they arrive in the Cape, or for search and discovery once they’ve arrived,’ she says.
Grierson says the travel information available on the app is first rate: ‘Each point of interest features high-quality images, detailed text descriptions and contact information for anyone looking to find out more.’
Tourism Radio founder Mark Allewell agrees. ‘The thing that sets the Cape Point Route app apart is that the information it contains is 100% home-grown and tailored to the visitor. We produce a number of apps for DMOs in South Africa and across the world, and Cape Point Route has covered all the bases. It’s the perfect holiday companion when visiting the Cape, and we look forward to receiving feedback from our users,’ he says.
The Cape Point Route app can be downloaded free to any iPhone or Android device and can be accessed from the Tourism Radio website. It will also be available on the Cape Point Route website from 1 December 2013.
