Google Guide: Your Guide to the Perfect Trip!

Planning your trip has never been easier thanks to Google Guide, a versatile and powerful resource offered by Google. If you haven’t yet read my posts on how to use Google Maps to plan a trip and how Google Maps can become an alternative to, let me tell you that this post completes a journey that, through the tools provided by Google, enables you to plan and organise trips entirely on your own. In this article, we’ll explore in detail how to use this tool to optimise your travel search and make your itinerary flawless.

What Google Guide Is and How to Access It:

Google Guide is your virtual guide to exploring destinations, discovering points of interest, and planning your trip. To access it, open the Google Maps app on your device and make sure you’re logged into your Google account.

How to Make the Most of Google Guide:

Customise Your Itinerary: you have complete control over customising your itinerary. You can add points of interest to your personal list and organise your days as you wish. Simply navigate using the map and discover the points of interest you’ll find along the way. At the same time, you can modify your itinerary to avoid all the places that don’t interest you. Real-Time Reviews and Photos: Browsing through the map, you’ll find images uploaded by other travellers. Attached to their images, they will have also left their reviews that you can use to make informed decisions. Moreover, using this tool, you will have access to Google’s business listings, museums, attractions, and get updated information in real time on opening hours and local conditions.


SEO Advantages of Google Guide:

Do you know what SEO is? The acronym stands for “Search Engine Optimization.” The entire web is organised according to keywords. Google’s search engine works by indexing the “keywords” we use to search for what interests us. So, all of Google’s tools work in the same way: when you perform a search by entering keywords, the results you get back are consistent. Keyword Optimisation: Google Guide is designed to meet your travel needs. Take advantage of its keyword optimisation, providing results relevant to your searches. Personalised Local Experience: Experience a customised local guide based on your preferences. Google Guide can suggest authentic places recommended by locals. Real-Time Updates for Local Conditions: Stay informed with real-time updates on traffic, opening hours, and more. Google Guide keeps you up to date with the latest data.

Finding Activities and Useful Information:

Google Guide assists you in finding intriguing activities and essential information about your destination. Optimise your search for activities, museums, restaurants, and more, for a seamless travel experience. When you start your search by entering keywords, and each time you refine your search by entering new ones, this tool responds by showing increasingly relevant results. Example: Planning a trip to Paris for a romantic weekend getaway. Your first search might involve “romantic restaurants.” Once you’ve got the results, you might refine your search by entering “restaurants with traditional French dishes.” Finally, you might add a further search key with the keyword “escargot.” Each time, this tool will show you more relevant results and the listings of activities and places to visit along your itinerary.

Google Guide vs. Traditional Travel Agencies:

Customising your itinerary is completely in your hands, and by using the capabilities of this tool, it will be easy for you to find the information (and contacts) that until recently constituted the competitive advantage making travel agencies indispensable. You’ll be able to directly contact all the final service providers you need and avoid having to use (and pay for) a professional to plan your trip. If you’re bold enough and have the courage to take responsibility for the success of your travel plan, you’ll have everything necessary to do without the help of an agency.


Google Guide is your essential resource for planning a tailor-made trip. Make full use of this digital guide to discover new places, plan custom itineraries, and turn your trip into an unforgettable experience.


If you’re reading this blog, you’re an adventurous traveler, and I want to invite you to experience something unique. We are forming a Community of Travelers who will exclusively try out the new digital platform we’ve created to organize and plan trips and vacations entirely autonomously, avoiding all forms of intermediation.

“We believe that the free and spontaneous sharing of information is the key to making ‘traveling’ a habit achievable by everyone.”

When you return from a trip, you possess valuable information: Hotels, Restaurants, Tour Guides, the experiences you’ve had! These are pieces of information you will never use again, but they are indispensable for someone who wants to take a journey similar to yours.

If you’ve lived an unforgettable experience, you’ve brought home all the information necessary to replicate it! So, why not share it?

Why not leave other travelers the information you’ve gathered on the spot or during your experience?

This way, others can save time (and money) and live travel experiences based on your stories. We want to create a database of information available to everyone.

Join the project, and you too can find the information needed to plan your next trip with the help of the community!

We are creating a digital platform where you can find (and exchange) all the necessary information to plan and organize trips and vacations completely autonomously!

All this thanks to the “principle of sharing” and the solidarity among travelers who share information collected during their travel experiences.

If you want to participate in the final phase of the development of this new digital platform and become a Beta Tester (for free) by sending feedback, suggestions, and new ideas…
