This was our first time in Boston and this self-guided app was PERFECT for a day on the Freedom Trail! We loved the go-at-your-own pace idea with clearly marked points of interest along the route, audio information at each stop, and the GPS feature which helped us to hit each important stop on the trail. Highly recommend this informative and convenient app for anyone looking to explore Boston!
It was a great self-guided app and also offered some extra information at some stops. As you walk, it tracks your GPS and plays audio automatically as you arrive at the location. This tour was an excellent way to remember the American Revolution and the history. The really nice thing was that you can focus on your tour and not have your head stuck in a book or map and miss something!
I have been using this app for years. Love it. Highly recommend.
Used this app when visiting Boston two weeks ago. Although it was quite chilly, we walked the entire Freedom Trail (even to Bunker Hill). It’s a LONG walk so plan ahead! The stories in the app made the walk enjoyable (we would walk while listening) and allowed us to flexibly choose where to stop for food/rest. There was one spot where my phone’s GPS went haywire but I don’t think it was the app’s fault. (It settled back down in a few blocks). Overall a great resource!
Map didn’t work or load and audio KILLED my batter in 15 minutes. Just follow the marked sidewalk!
My family and I used this app for both the freedom trail and Harvard Yard. It was a great self paced option for the freedom trail and offered extra information at some areas. The gps was great and made it easy to follow and the audio guide as soon as you approached the locations.
Used it most to figure out where we were. I like how the app would start playing as you entered a relevant area, although I often had to pause it if I wasn’t ready to listen (in conversation with someone). Content was fine, but wish it had more stories to tell.
We found the running commentary helped us appreciate the sites before and once we arrived at them. Would recommend this audio tour to all ages.
