A fantastic app
I am very glad I found this app - it is amazing.
I completed the Backstage Westminster, St James’ Park: The Queen’s guard, and Mayfair: A Spy’s Guide on 26th October. I loved all of them; the commentary is both informative and entertaining. The GPS is spot on, which means that the commentary matches your own pace, and the directions were very clear (even for someone like me who has no sense of direction at all). I am looking forward to completing the others based in London and will be recommending it to my friends.
Such a great way to see a city
Love Detour. So many interesting mini tours to do to your own schedule, giving you a really different take on a place from people who have interesting stories to tell.
