Ratings and Reviews
I love this app! The tours are interesting and very well-written and I love that I can access them at my own pace and schedule - I just pick up the app as and when I want to. It is always being updated with fresh new tours covering a wide range of areas (London, Canterbury, Bath, Lake District etc.) and themes (Maritime, Literary, Religion etc.) across Britain so there is guaranteed to be something for everyone to enjoy. I have learnt so much aboutBritain's fascinating sights and heritage and haven't even had to leave my home to do so. But guaranteed when I go travelling the UK this summer this will be my go-to travel companion!
Really useful on the move

- Would be good to show me what tours I've bought.
Would definitely recommend - much cheaper than joining a walking tour or open top bus ride!
