A Must have for your Europe visit! We used this for our recent Italy trip. The app has the main attractions of Rome,Florence and Venice and is an excellent way to get an introduction to each place as well as get the important details. I wish we had known about it during our earlier visits to Europe. Informative, fun and saves $$ wasted on audio guides/tours.
An amazing guide for Rome. Easy to follow and gives you all the major details of the city and tiny tidbits of information. I would recommend using it for the Sistine Chapel (made it so easy to comprehend the frescos for a non Christian), Vatican Musuem (the bit on Raphael rooms are articulate), Colosseum, Pantheon tours. I did find the St. Peter's audio guide a little wanting and hard to follow.
Great collection of audio tours. Recently went on a trip to Rome with the family. I think we did all of Rick's guides for Rome. The Vatican one was very good and got us through the museum where would have otherwise been wandering aimlessly. Some of his guides have cheesy jokes which are bearable. If I could add one feature it would be a way to sync up the audio between multiple devices. Some tours could also benefit from extra transition time.
This app couldn't have been better for our Rome, Florence, and Venice honeymoon. In high tourism areas with guides trying to sell you 40 euro audio tours in groups of 50 people, we were so glad to have a better option. The information was very interesting, and the slight humor and witty lines broke up some of the denser areas perfectly. I can't recommend this app enough.
This app is only as good as the tracks you can get on it, and Rick's "bubbly" discussions about everything that pops into his head during a walking tour gets very tiresome. To dramatically increase the usability and *improve* the quality of the tracks please add a "skip forward 5 second button". That way, when I don't want to hear the lively banter, I won't have to. I don't want his opinions on the sites, I want FACTS! The only other thing I can think of is being able to copy and paste the transcript.
Would love to use it. Keeps saying failed to download track list, internet connection required. Have tried wifi, 4g, toggling airplane mode, and restarting. Xiaomi mi5
