Welcome to Boston’s GPS-enabled professionally-narrated walking tours!

Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn, fully-guided tour.

You’ll find three tours in one app - all highly entertaining, thoroughly researched and prepared by local guides.

The Freedom Trail (highlights of the American Revolution),
Harvard Yard (Ivy league university’s history and “who stayed where”), and
Boston HarborWalk (Boston Tea Party, modern-day harbor).

This app-based tour has significant benefits over other apps and over live guides:

Easy to use: Download the app on your own phone. Then download the tour(s) you’re interested in taking. Simply follow the GPS map & the routing line. It’s like Google Maps and a tour book combined in one! The tour takes you to every single stop; you won’t miss a thing and won’t get lost.

Fully automatic: Each point of interest along the tour has a narrated story, narrated directions, and helpful images, gifs or videos. As you walk along the path and approach a pin, it’s story will automatically pop up and start playing.

Fascinating stories: Engaging, accurate, and entertaining story about each point of interest. The stories are professionally narrated and prepared by local guides. Most stops also have additional stories that you can optionally choose to hear.

Freedom to travel: No scheduled tour timings, no crowded groups, and no rush to move along past stops that interest you. You have total freedom to skip ahead, linger, and take as many photos as you’d like.

Save a ton: No “per person” tickets for guided tours! No tips per person.

Visualize what you cannot see: most stops have images, some have animated gifs from different centuries, seasons, or for interior rooms.

Take the story home: Enjoy the tour before, during, and after your visit. Easily create an album or share the images & stories with your friends and family.
