PorTOURble
"tour guide" 

On self-guided tours, your tour guide is a PorTOURble you get to carry along with you as you would a guidebook--in your hand, in your pocket or purse--but one that is completely customized and personalized for you and your group.

Your PorTOURble “tour guide” always up-to-date: it has current information about specialty tours, restaurants, sights, arts, Broadway and off-Broadway theatre, themed and neighborhood tours, directions, transportation information, city information, live events and activities associated with a specific tours and events, and special requests made by the guests.

It contains: your itineraries, photographs, reviews, notes, maps and routes, descriptions, information, tips, locations, hours, specials, etc.

In addition to the typical contents of routes, buildings, history, sites, restaurants, places, arts, live events, entertainment and such, your PorTOURbles can have sections of specific, customer-chosen interests as varied as sculptures in Central Park, subway stops of note, tattoo parlors in The Village, bridges, rare bookstores and so on.
An interesting feature of the SteadyJoy PorTOURble is the feedback and survey section. This section contains pages and forms for you to give feedback as if you were filling out the survey cards in a business, at an event or while talking with management or employees.

Locals use the system for recurring outings and tie-ins with online history of places visited and with items purchased, such as wine brands and types and with hosted events.

Traditional tour and event publishers have long-standing problems by virtue of the content areas they cover. Tour and event information changes even as an author puts pen to paper - hotels and restaurants open and close, prices go up, and governments change. This fact, combined with publishing delays of at least a year, means a tour and event guide is out of date the moment it is published. In addition, the costs of publication result in guides pitched at the masses, offering only certain geographical areas and middle-of-the road content. There is no time for, or profit in, creating guides which truly meet an individual's needs.
SteadyJoy PorTOURbles solve those problems.
