The word GuHu stands for "Guiding Humans", and it is the key concept of our travel guide.
In a GuHu app, locals have carefully sourced the places to feature in the guide, and have collected the personal stories of those who work and live in the city.
We chose Naples (Italy) as the city for our first GuHu app.
Here is one way in which a GuHu app is different from any other travel app: we care about the people behind the places you are visiting.
What's their story?
You're not just told what the best restaurants or bars are to visit - there are a lot of guides that already do that. Instead, you will hear the story of the chef that works in that restaurant, or the table boy that serves in that bar.
When you will be a tourist in Naples, then, you can let these stories guide you.
We use a format that is very similar to that by HumansofNewYork.com (we're huge fan!).
I hope you like this project, and if you want to contribute to it, there is a way that does not involve donations.
It would be amazing to be able to add more cities and, together, to introduce a new way to share the soul of a city.
So please, if you want to get involved, get in touch.
