A lot of walking with very little information provided.
Anne_S, Aug 2023
A lot of walking with very little information provided. The tour could be nice but there is very little information for a lot of walking. Philadelphia has so much history. Tell it!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Anne, there may have been some confusion during the tour. Usually, the tour provides plenty of information while walking. To ensure you receive the whole experience, I suggest starting the tour from the beginning point indicated in the App. Starting over should fix any missed segments or interruptions. However, the product you purchased is valid for a lifetime, so you can take the tour on your next visit or listen to it from the comfort of your home.
Great Experience!
Kareen_V, Apr 2023
Great experience. We normally go on group tours ñ, but this tour allowed us to go on our own terms. I will definitely be buying the full package for our next vacation.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thanks so much Kareen! That flexibility is one of the best features of my self-guided tour. I’m glad you had a great time in Philadelphia with my tour. If you plan to travel more, you may like my Action+ Tour Bundle (it has all of my self-guided tours, over 100). Thanks again!
Terrific audio tour!
Elizabeth_C, Apr 2022
Terrific audio tour. Highly recommend. I wish every city had such a tour. If I made a wrong turn, I immediately knew from the GPS guide. I stopped at several sites to spend more time. And the information provided was excellent. Thank you!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
That’s so great to hear! There’s so much to discover in Philly. We have more self-guided audio tours (both walking and driving) on our website — including more historical cities. I hope you get to try more in the future. Thanks again!
