    The app worked really well for us. We were able to follow the freedom trail with all of the information you would get on a guided tour but at our own pace. We stopped at the public market. Excellent way to find your way around Boston and learn about its rich history.

    Our record of your call indicates that we got you a passcode within seconds. (Note that our description clearly indicates that it could take up to 30min after a booking for a passcode to auto-send.) The GPS accuracy depends on your phone and not on the app: GPS readings are nearly exact on newer phone models and accurate within 15ft on older models. If you let us know what model you used, we can help you to optimize your phone’s GPS settings. Lastly, we’re happy to take specific suggestions to improve our UI/UX and look forward to hearing back from you!

    This tour was a great activity. Loved being able to go at our own pace and mix some shopping and lunch in. The weather was fantastic when we did it, but you definitely need to dress according and wear comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the conditions. While most of the

    Thanks a lot for the review. The trail is indeed long. So yes you need to prepare accordingly. Please look for our tours for Newport, Chicago, California, Cancun (Mexico), and Bar Harbor Maine.

    The app was slow to react when on the move which made the flow of the tour difficult. We gave up about half way through using the tour app guide. Used Google maps to find a couple more stops and the door then listen to the narration. We didn't get a chance to see the entire tour

    Thoroughly enjoyed this tour despite the gloomy weather! The layout and information provided at each point is very informative and engaging. The best part, for me, is the ability to do work through the trail in my own time - spending more time at points of greater interest.
