Today, GPS enabled systems are extensively used for geographic navigation in almost all contexts (commercial, personal, etc.). The first limit of these systems is their incapacity to work in covered areas, alley streets and, obviously, inside buildings. Furthermore commercial GPS applications are not enough customizable, only allowing user to add a set of POIs (points of interest) without any capability of adding user defined behaviors. Recently, other kind of technologies, such as RFID (radio frequency identification) and Bluetooth, are being used to develop location based applications, like context aware services usable in indoor environment. In this paper we present a hybrid system called MoWeT that make use of both GPS and RFID technology and that is fully customizable in regard of contents, events, user interactions. MoWeT allows also, users involved in the same work session, to interact each other through their mobile devices, making use of a central communication server, but also with users connected to the same session, but with a 3D view, with their workstations (mixed reality). In this paper we focus on the usage as enhanced personal tourist guidance with mobile connectivity.
