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.

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.

Amazing information, great price! I love the flexibility to start, stop, not go in order. Very nice experience and really enjoyed it.

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

Better then expected. Perfect addition to a Boston trip
