We build our guides and maps with the utmost care, all based on information provided by locals. We want to make travelling easier for you, by giving you our best advice in an easy and innovative way.

We aim at giving a clear overview of every city, for you to find your way more easily. In order to get overview, our locals have to make choices about what information we must show, and what not. Our locals want to make you streetwise, by showing you the most interesting or most important information.

Please keep in mind that the information we show is like our best advice at the moment, not an indisputable and unchangeable truth. This also holds for — and is not limited to — the information we provide about safety risk. Please note that you may well experience safety risk outside the areas marked with safety risk on our maps, or you may not experience any safety risk at all in the marked areas. People remain fully responsible for their own safety at all times. We cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred.

The way we've come to show our information about cities to the public is entirely new and unique. Think about the (innovative) categories we use in our maps (indicated by means of our typical layers, or via our icons), the composition of information in every category, the choice of words we've used and the images we've picked.

We are grateful for having the chance to build this great product, and to make visiting cities around the world easier. It makes us investing a lot of effort, time, money and individual creativity in the product — hard work that is protected by copyright.
