Who are we?
Gringo is a mission driven start-up taking on a challenge to make exploring the world easier. City by City. We believe each one of us is different and we discover the world in different ways. That’s why we created Gringo app, a mobile city tour guide tailored to your desires.
Because planning tours abroad is a daunting experience, we have committed to deliver one mobile tour guide app for all the locations in your itinerary. No more spending hours on trying to draft a perfect tour for you and your travel companions. We and the community of fellow travelers will make exploring foreign cities easier than ever.
The legend has it that gringos were the foreign, non Spanish-speaking sailors who moored in Malaga, Spain and could hardly be understood by the locals. Why gringos? Their language was simply so distinct and difficult, it was satirically referred to as “griego” meaning “Greek”, becoming an analogy for indistinct or incomprehensible speech of strangers. Ever since, gringo has been used in Latin America to describe foreigners, especially North Americans and Europeans.
We know that, even for the brightest gringos, planning a tour in an unknown city might be overwhelming. With the amount of information available online, just an advisor is not enough anymore. Let the Gringo community be your guide or become a guide yourself.
