  • Parfait!

    By JeffGC
    What a great app! I’m in Paris, alone, as I do each April. Even though I know the city quite well, I enjoy following a planned walk, taking pictures. “Detour” is impressive and amazing. This was money well spent. Today, I walked “Illegal Paris.” I’ve been traveling to Paris for twenty-five years. Twice, I’ve been in a place when I’ve said to myself, “This is a bad idea. I have no business being here. Get out of here. Go find the closest Métro.” Today was one of those times. Still, the app deserves five stars. Just skip this specific tour.
  • Delightful!

    Wonderful audio tour. Informative and ties in current events. Can’t wait to travel more to try it again.
  • The Beat Generation

    By Mermaid Lisa
    My husband and I used this app while traveling in San Francisco. He is a huge fan of the Beat writers and knew a lot about them and the parts of the city that they frequented! However, he learned even more and discovered some treasures that he was unfamiliar with. He and I both loved this app, will recommend it and will absolutely use it again!

  • This app is amazing!

    By Delberttwin
    I first bought this app for a trip to San Francisco and was so impressed with the high quality tours we did. The Fisherman’s Wharf tour made that area so much more interesting than just a tourist trap. Just last week my husband and I traveled to Rome where we did the ‘essential Rome’ pack. SO fantastic. Can’t say enough about this app. I hope you expand to more locations!
  • Great app and tour

    By Grouponrocks29
    Engaging and active way to learn about fascinating architecture and history on tour we did in San Fran
  • Fabulous app

    By ChronicFear
    My wife and I have used this in multiple cities to find all sorts of amazing, off-the-track locations and sights. The navigation is very smooth, and the scripts are very well-written. I highly recommend this app.
  • Amazing way to explore new places

    By Jeremyjc
    While in Paris I was looking for ideas for places to visit that would bring me away from the standard spots. I took a bread tour and was absolutely blown away. The gps, instructions and story were all amazing. I highly recommend the app. Detours done well are really immersive.

    This is AWESOME! Guided narrated tours with interesting narrators and fun surprises!!! I’ve done two tours, one in my own town (LA) and one in a city I was visiting! I cannot wait to try the next one!!!
  • Repeating ad in App Store

    By RogueDarko
    This app is no where near having all the locations it should (still doesn’t have mine - Seattle...which is not a small town) and yet I’ve seen it repeated on the App Store New Daily advertisements. The new App Store format should not show repeats! There are only a few highlighted apps each day. Don’t use a space for a crap app that you have already shown just a few weeks ago. Downloaded the app to write this review. Now deleting useless app. 🤬
