the App is not easy to download and no clear instructions. Consequently did not use it. It is a shame you cannot download the app beforehand so that you can plan in advance and ensure everything is up and running before the day you need it.

This little walking tour was full of interesting facts and history. I found it insightful and was glad I purchased - much more economical than a walking tour with a tour guide.

Loved the aspect of my pausing and playing as needed. The stories and interesting facts about Cambridge were lovely too.

Enjoyed this walk at our own pace. Good audio which was easy to follow and listen to. Would recommend to other users and will check out other cities

First time we’ve tried this concept, and we have to say that it really is brilliant! The tour as such was ok, with some fun and interesting anecdotes and points of interest, but unfortunately the narrator was a bit blah, and sounded like she was going to fall asleep at any moment. That said, this really is a great way to get some background and insight into the places you visit, if you haven’t got the time or money or whatever to do a tour with a live guide. So we really recommend the concept as such. It is really good value for money, and lets you walk around in your own pace.
