There’s a story behind everything you see. The sights you see are but a small part of the charm. Join us on a quest for these stories, as we guide you through the bylanes of the city.
AWARD-WINNING CONTENT – NOW AS AUDIO TOURS
Storytrails has hosted unique story-based walking tours in multiple cities since 2006. These popular tours have consistently won critical acclaim from travellers and awards from the travel community worldwide. Now, enjoy this unique content in the form of audio tours that you can experience in your own time, at your own pace, and with many added features that are made possible by a mobile application. While our friendly storytellers make way for a mobile application, what hasn’t changed is the careful thought that goes into research, curation and presentation of content.
These tours are ‘location-aware’ meaning that the app senses when you have reached a certain point and automatically prompts you with the relevant content. You can choose to play, pause or replay the content at your own convenience. You can also manually select any location on the map and play the associated stories, without even visiting the location.
These tours will take you through many places of tourist interest and also some that are not on any checklist. But these are not mere sight-seeing tours. At each location, you will hear fascinating stories straddling history, mythology and local culture - all connecting back to the theme of the tour. These stories are researched in-depth, and carefully curated to provide a context to the sights around you.
The App allows you to download the tours to your device and you can play the purchased tours even if you are not connected to a data service while on the tour. This makes it particularly user friendly in locations with patchy mobile data networks or with no mobile networks. Click on any location from the map on the App and you can play stories associated with that location, even when you are offline. Having a data connection additionally allows your device to identify your location and trigger those stories automatically
Most of the stories are supplemented with archival images sourced from the best repositories worldwide. These are clubbed with illustrations and contemporary views of places covered on the tours to add another dimension to the tour experience.
NAVIGATION INFORMATION, TIPS & SUGGESTIONS
The app tells you not just where to go, but what to spot or look for, the best times to go, and even what to/ not to wear. Because sometimes, maps just aren’t enough.
