Easy to use smartphone tour of Salem MA
Rod_M, Aug 2023
Easy to follow tour led by listening to app instructions. Automatically adjusts topics as you walk into vicinity of the next subject. Easy to download and use the app, we found it best to test the app before getting to the tour starting point. And if you leave the designated tour path, it will automatically pickup once you return to a specific location. Price was reasonable. Use headphones rather than speaker to avoid annoying others nearby. Recommended.
Response from Host, Aug 2023

The app didn’t work it skipped around when it would finally load. Wasn’t at all what it advertised ………,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hmm. Unfortunately, it did not work for you. I would love to help you out. Can you tell me a bit about your phone? I also have another 100 tours in the US. I will happily exchange this with any of them. Please let me know.
Touring Salem
John_W, Oct 2022
My mother, daughter and I took on the self guided tour of Salem. The hardest part was the orientation of the map but after recognizing the need to read street signs (duh) we were off! There were a couple of places that the guide was unclear about entry and order of viewing (memorial and graveyard) but other than that it was perfect. We also added the extra stops which were fun!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you so much for your feedback, John! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the stories and your trip to Salem. The tour has been completely updated, but if you have any suggestions for new features, we will forward them to our team! because we are constantly looking for ways to enhance the touring experience I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the United States — hopefully you'll get a chance to try them the next time you visit! Also, as a reminder, the tour you purchased is valid for a lifetime. As a result, you can listen to it at home or during your next visit.
