Audio out of sync with position
Oct 2021 • Friends
It basically didn't work correctly. I think 2 times I actually saw and recognized what was being described in the audio. It had no value because it was going on and on about some building which I was not near.

Cheapest, Best Waking Tour

I almost didn't do this based on the review before me, but they were so WRONG! This is the cheapest and best tour you can take in Milwaukee. I'm assuming the guy who wrote the other review didn't use the software correctly.

We have taken a dozen tours or more and this was in the top 25%.

The price is right, and with the use of GPS on your phone, you can decide to take it at whatever pace is right for you.

We completed about 2/3 of the tour, then stopped at a place to have Sunday Brunch, and returned to where we left off. Perfect!

There are at least 4-5 things this tour showed us that we would have NEVER stopped and seen on our own.

I give it 5 stars for value, convenience, and information.

Poor tour - save your money. Very dissapointed. No information was provided regarding any of the buildings which we pa
Jul 2021 • Solo
I guess I shouldn't have expected much for $5. I found the starting point and the only instruction was to walk 8 blocks to the Riverwalk. Although we passed a number of interesting buildings nothing was said about any of them. Upon reaching the Riverwalk, I received no further instructions and continued on my own.

Hi Ron, We're sorry you had difficulty using the tour. It actually includes in-depth information about all sorts of buildings along the way, including: * Milwaukee Public Library * Wisconsin Center * Grand Avenue Mall * The Riverside Theater * The Faison Building * The Iron Block Building * The Wells Building * The Pfister Hotel * The US Courthouse and Federal Building * The Gas Light Building * Northwestern Mutual Headquarters * U.S. Bank Center * Milwaukee Art Museum There are a number of others too. But we don't have any record of you actually downloading and starting the tour, and it seems as if you might have missed the instructions we provided about how to use VoiceMap. Did you see the steps described on your ticket PDF, under Before You Go? You need to install the app, enter the code we provide, and then press start after you arrive at the starting point. We'd really like to understand what went wrong here. You can email me at iain@voicemap.me. Thanks.
