Love it! I took a trip to Boston last minute because I found a great deal on airfare. As a result, I couldn't find a travel buddy to tag along. Because of Covid, I didn't want to join with a tour guide group, so this self-guided tour was perfect. I did the Freedom Trail and because the tour is mapped out with red bricks on the road, I was able to do the whole tour without staring at my phone. The GPS automatically tracked where I was so whenever I was near a point of interest, the audio played. I loved this and I would highly recommend it, especially for solo travelers.

Such a great tour! I loved being able to start and stop the audio based on pace, stopping to see other sites, eating, etc. Super informative and a great way to see the city and have a great history lesson. I highly recommend for anyone who wants to avoid touring with a group.

We did the freedom trail in Boston this fall. The download was terrific with good information and mapping. I would use this app in another location in which there are similar historic, must see places. Glad I stumbled onto this app.

This self paced experience was amazing if you have little ones that you may have extra stops for!

The self guided tour was awesome. I liked how you can do it on your own time.
