NAVA is a mobile application available on iOS and Android that uses machine learning to offer a personalised city exploration experience. Powered by machine learning and human curation, NAVA provides a more dynamic and personally relevant experience than guidebooks and recommendation sites. Create an itinerary for the day or explore locally, based on your interests, budget and the time you have available. All our locations are personally curated by the team to ensure that we include only the most unique, hidden or unusual gems that only the avid local explorers know about. We're also working with independent businesses to help with customer acquisiton, engagement and brand loyalty to reach new customers at a much lower cost.
