About this app

**Our biggest update ever just in time for summer travel - featuring new 75+ new tours, 12 new cities, and a lot more!**

Immersive audio walks that guide you through the world's most interesting places with the people that know them best. Whether exploring solo or with friends, Detour will change the way you experience places. Available in 17 cities around the world.


Location-Aware: Detour uses GPS to keep the narrator in sync with your location so you can stare at the sights instead of your screen.

Social: The world's first social audio tour, sync Detour with friends for a shared experience.

Cinematic Production: Each Detour lets you walk in the shoes of a narrator with a special connection to the place, giving you access to voices and experiences you couldn't otherwise have. Join Ken Burns, Radiolab, Errol Morris, Philip Petit and more as they guide you through some of the world's most iconic locations.


Detour is currently available in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Austin, London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, and Marrakech.

A lot of negative reviews for a defunct app. I wish the description would say that since being bought from Bose, Detour is no longer in use, as of May 2018. Or at least until Bose announces something with it. I miss having access to free walking tours, but will stick to alternatives for now.

doesn't work on Android anymore. do not buy any tours, is a waste of money. i think the app is defunct because they don't even respond to requests. iOS support is marginally better, but not by much, not even worth purchasing there. i don't know why they took such a good idea with promise and stopped supporting it. a shame and a waste.

Used this app a year ago in Rome and it was fantastic. Downloaded it for my upcoming trip to India and it crashes everytime I tried to log in using Facebook. Android os Mi Mix2. Would love to give 5 stars but I can't log into the account I've already made purchases with.
