App Store Description

Turn your phone into a personal tour guide!
Welcome to Boston’s GPS-controlled professionally narrated walking tours! You’ll find 3 tours in one app - Boston Freedom Trail, Boston Harbor Walk, and Cambridge Harvard Yard. All are highly entertaining tours prepared by local guides and professionally narrated.

Boston Freedom Trail
This 2.5-mile trail winds through historic Boston, passing essentials like Boston Common, Old North Church, Paul Revere’s home, and Bunker Hill. Re-live the battles for American independence on this 90-minute walk.

Boston Harborwalk
This scenic 3-mile tour follows the waterfront around Boston Harbor. Covering everything from historically significant sites (Boston’s Tea Party) to modern-day luxury developments (Battery Wharf), this 90-minute tour has it all.

Harvard Yard
Harvard Yard is the heart of the famous Ivy League university’s campus. Learn about Harvard’s history and evolution with this 90-minute walking tour around the “yard”.

How does the app work? Just like having a local live guide!
Download the app and its tours on your own phone. Then simply walk the guided route, hands-free. The app works like Google Maps, with spoken directions and audio stories at each stop. As you walk up to a stop, it’s photo and audio story will automatically pop up and start playing. The guided map will take you to every single stop on the tour; you won’t miss a thing! It is just like you’re walking with an experienced, live guide giving you a personal tour. Plus, with this app, you don’t have to worry about adjusting to a guide’s schedule or timings. You’re free to take the tour anytime you want.

Much better than a local live guide!
History comes alive!
Many of the buildings looked different back in the day. Many have interesting internal decor. So, while viewing from the outside, you have to imagine what they looked like back then or what is the internal decor etc. A live guide cannot show you these historical or internal pictures. However, our app provides, both, current, historical and internal photos or videos of these buildings whenever possible. So you can actually “see” what they looked like back then and get the full breadth of the story.

Save a ton!
Most guided tours or bus tours require tickets per person. That can really add up! With this app, you just need one download. Everyone listens as you walk along the designated route. Easy!

Take the story home!
With one download, you’re getting both a live guide during your visit AND a “digital guidebook” to take home with you. You’ll have these stories for as long as you have the app, and you can share your memories and favorite tales with friends and family back home.

Quick tips!
Please allow about 90 mins for each tour. You can choose to skip certain stops, or not listen to additional content on stops if you want to get through the tour more quickly. You can start anywhere on the route and follow the directions. The app has total offline functionality (no need for WiFi or data).

So simply download the app and get started!
