AWESOME!
May 2021
This was a great tour! My husband and I used one phone and each used one Bluetooth earbud. Being able to pause the tour so we could go into a church or stop to get a bite to eat and then resume the tour was awesome! We didn't have to keep up with 10 other people and a guide that we couldn't hear. The app was super easy to use too, and the 'guide' was informative and humorous as well! I hope they have more audio tours of other cities as we will definitely use them. Enjoy!

Thank you for the awesome review! Very much appreciated. Happy to hear you enjoyed our tour! At the moment we have tours in Charleston, Savannah, Boston, Salem MA, New Orleans and Portsmouth NH. And we are working on rolling out more cities. Thanks for the great review!

Very nice tour; nearly perfect
This was a great way to experience Charleston. The tour is very easy to follow with written directions and verbal cues. 2 slight negatives: the tour does NOT take you back to your starting point...it would be nice if it did. Also, the narrator keeps referring to “you young fellas” on the tour...kind of awkward for a middle age couple LOL.

It was great to go at my pace and to do the dig deeper and also great to go back and listen again.
Make sure your battery is fully charged we did not have an issue, but my phone was low to start and I didn't have much left when I finished. my wife was fully charged and she was fine

Thank you for the great review! And great suggestion on the battery, best to have a full battery before setting out on the tour, GPS tends to drain. Thanks again!
