Fine work for the self guided tour. I liked the interactive map. The gps letting me know where I was. Enough information with links for more. Well done.
Wanted the flexibility of a self-paced tour so purchased this app and it was well worth. I loved the GPS feature and being able to delve into more detail if I wanted. I purchased the bundle and look forward to using the app for the other spots.
App continually asked for a comment on how I was enjoying the App and then it would freeze. Tried all the usual remedies to unfreeze with no luck. Eventually gave up using about midway thru the Freedom trail.
Works well and provides interesting info. Five stars except for continual annoying interruptions asking for rating.
Tour worked great a year ago, but now I can’t get the app to open at all and I can’t find a way to contact the app developer.
I purchased the $9.99 package. I used it one day and enjoyed it. The second day when I opened it, it didn’t recognize that I had purchased it and wanted me to pay again.
I am super impressed with the app tour. It is well done and is really nice because I didn’t want to do everything so I was able to pick and choose.
Excellent tour for the price. We really appreciated being able to go off the tour to eat and shop and pick up where we left off. One nice add might be to note where public restrooms are located, but otherwise fantastic.
Totally worth it. You could just walk it yourself but you miss out on some great narration, and to do one of the organized tours you are spending 3x more easily. Highly recommend this for a nice diy walking tour at your own pace.
We were following the bricks from bunker hill, apparently app has a different path! It would skip out of an audio in the middle, making places like the cemeteries totally annoying.
