We present the mobile augmented reality tour application (MART) to provide intuitive interface for the tourist. And, a context-awareness is used for smart guide. In this paper, we discuss practical ways of recognizing the context correctly with overcoming the limitation of the sensors. First, semi-automatic context recognition is proposed to explore context ontology based on user experience. Second, multiple sensors context-awareness enables to construct context ontology by using multiple sensor. And, we introduce the iphone tour application for the national palace museum of korea.
