    Events play an important role in touristic activities, they are usually planned in group, involving collaborative behaviours. Mobile technology is a useful tool for such activities. Augmented reality used in handheld devices can enhance the tourist experience. In this work, we present three mobile apps for the exploration of cultural events in a city: one based on 2D maps; one based on AR technology and a Hybrid one that integrates both approaches. In addition, we report on the impact that the different technology has on collaborative behaviors. Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).
