Our mission:

Providing personal, authentic, sustainable travel guides that make a positive impact on the world.

We are committed to sustainable travel by providing personal guidebooks without using a single shred of paper.

But, we decided to go further…

For every Guidester created, a tree will be planted.

Currently, we are donating to OneWorldTree which is replanting the wildlife of Australia after the devastating bushfires. 

Every Guidester sold will mean $1 to the foundation, which translates into a brand-new tree being planted.

Story behind guidester

As the birthplace of western civilization, Europe’s layered history leaves unique planning challenges for those wanting to explore on their own. Our founder, Jack Baumann, learned this all too well through his years of living and traveling in Europe.

From London to Rome to Prague to all over Europe, it became clear that the process involved in modern travel planning has become antiquated and outdated.

Travelers are forced to spend hours with Google searches, visit multiple sites, flip through paper guidebooks, comb through biased reviews, and look for recommendations on social media. The outdated modes of planning a trip to Europe cost hours of time, are not personal, and lack some key local insights.

In today’s fast-paced world, a better tool was needed to help the independent traveler succeed.

Jack saw the need and set out to create a travel tool that removes all these challenges, making it easy for travelers to envision and experience their perfect trip to Europe.

From this desire to help, Guidester was born.
