Google's Touring Bird by Area 120 Lets You Explore

Technology Inceptions

Google’s incubator Area 120 is at it again with a new tool to help you find vacation activities. The tool, called Touring Bird, is a website designed for mobile that lists tours, attractions, and activities to do in popular travel destinations.

At present, Touring Bird is offering information for a few major destinations around the globe. The list includes Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Miami, New Delhi, New York, Orlando, Paris, Prague, Rome, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington DC. Once you click on any of the listed places, the website shows you the top three sights of the place. You can scroll down to see all the tours and activities available in the place, local tips, and free tours.

You can also look for the free tours available at your destination to enjoy your trip and explore new places without spending a penny. Additionally, you can visit new areas as per your interests. So far, the site only provides information for a handful of destinations, including Prague, Toronto, Orlando, Chicago, and Amsterdam. It looks like it’s North America and Europe-centric so far. It’s also only available in English, so tourists who prefer other languages won’t find much utility from this site.
