We were going to take a guided tour, but then I stumbled across this. We liked being able to go at our on pace. It was very easy to follow the trail. The audio clips for each stop could be a little longer in some spots. I would have liked some audio during the long parts of the walk when there was nothing to listen to.
For the price it was good but it could have been so much better if more of the locations had a button "For more information click here". Made it difficult to go out of order. Easy to use and follow. Highly recommend for families and people looking for a self-guided tour.
Don’t bother with guided tours. The app had some really good information. We followed our own timeline and path. Stories are excellent. My only nit would be that the map had difficulty orienting at times, and also that my feet are sore from all the walking.
Easily the best choice. This was interesting and did take us places we would not have gone on our own. At many of the places you just could not see what the narrative was talking about. The narratives were better than the view.
The app on the phone provided as little or as much information about each of the locations as one cared to hear. We were able to stop mid-tour to have lunch, then resume our sightseeing afterwards. One cautionary note, prior to taking to tour, plan ahead on how you plan to return to your desired location.
It was good to be able to go at your own pace. Not too difficult to follow, but I had to look at my phone more than I would have liked. Would recommend adding some additional content at some of the locations.
Was very helpful in describing places and scenery. Sometimes a tad confusing regarding directions and I had to back track. But overall very useful and fun. Will try another.
This app provided a lot of background information while walking around. My hu**and opted not to get the app and kept asking what the app was saying about each site. My advice would be to make sure you have a backup battery since the app does use up significant battery life.
Super flexibility. We stopped 3 times for pictures, lunch and going inside a store. App worked well. But it’s also a definite drain on your battery. Mine almost completely died by the time we arrived at North End from only using the app and my camera. Would recommend highly.
I have been using this app for years. Love it. Highly recommend.
