We enjoyed the narration, the tour, and all the stories! The pace was spot on, we could keep the tour running as we walked. Highly recommend!

We purchased this inexpensive audio tour during a weekend in Boston. It takes about an hour, walking through a lovely neighborhood with a rich history. The app knows where you are so the audio automatically plays when you reach your destination. The directions are great, so you do not need to look at your phone constantly. This is a terrific value. Don’t hesitate to buy!

Loved the narrator. Felt like reliving history. Very emotional to walk on the streets that my ancestors walked and ran to freedom.
