About this app

Award-winning StoryTourist offers an experience where books, films and other stories come to life, turning the world around you into a playground for the imagination. Browse the menu to see which StoryTours are available in your location. You could solve crimes with Sherlock Holmes in London, explore the deep sea with The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, or step into the true story of three women persecuted for witchcraft in Visby.

StoryTourist creates self-guided audio walking tours based on famous stories. When you go on a StoryTour, you will experience the narrative in the very spot where the action takes place. The app uses GPS to guide you from one place to another, and once you get there an interaction will be triggered to pop up on your mobile phone screen. Depending on the story, it can be anything from old photographs of what this location used to look like, to sounds, puzzles or animations that tie reality and story together.

Through the StoryTourist app you will be able to find out what your favourite fictional places look, smell and sound like.

StoryTours are perfect for:

* Travelers who want to go sightseeing in an exciting and flexible way.
* Anyone who enjoys audio books and sometimes wish they could step inside the story they are listening to.
* Puzzle game lovers.
* Residents who wish to discover a story hidden in their own city.
* Families or friends looking for a fun activity to do together.

There are many reasons to take a StoryTour:

* It is an affordable option to other guided walking tours. No tipping or additional costs!
* It is 100% flexible; you can start, pause and end the tour whenever it suits you.
* You can walk at your own pace, our GPS-based map function and the narrator of the tour will be your personal guide.
* You don’t have to walk around in a group if you don’t want to, StoryTours work perfectly for the solo traveler, as well as for couples and families.
* StoryTours contain immersive interactions that traditional tours don’t have; you can solve intricate puzzles, trigger sounds and animations or search for clues in your immediate surroundings!

Download the StoryTourist app, select a story in the city of your location and start your adventure! The app guides you in the right direction and when you reach the various StoryPoints, the part of the narrative that is set in that location will be unlocked.

The app requires GPS to work. For the best possible listening experience, bring headphones.
