The Personal Tour Guide in Your Pocket.
Ready to start an adventure? Tales & Tours lets you use your phone as a professional multimedia tour guide.
Download the multimedia guided tours (both paid & free guides & digital tours available) provided by curators and storytellers from around the world. Dive into another world around you through offline maps, images, audio and video.
Find guides for cycling, walking, boat, indoor (museums & galleries), park, zoo, geocaching, art, nightlife, running, sports and more.
*NOTE: Tales & Tours is Growing every day (and you can help!):
As this is the inaugural Tales & Tours app, guide content is available in some cities in Europe and USA, but not everywhere. Yet :D
We are working around the clock together with local storytellers and curators to add more stories, guides and tours every day.
The app automatically checks for new content, every day you use it.
As of October 2014 we have guide availability in the following cities across the world:
- New York
- San Francisco
Stay tuned, or demand guides near you through the in-app Guide Suggest form.
Ps. Going on holiday soon?
Use the search field on the homescreen to check your upcoming destination(s). Missing guides near your holiday spot? Be sure to use the in-app Guide Suggest form to see if we can help you with that.
Tip: If somehow some questions arise, or you have any remarks, be sure to use the 'FAQ' section, which you can find in the 'Settings'-menu. Here you can also 'Suggest Guides'.
Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
The Tales & Tours app tries to keep your GPS-usage as low as possible. But in order to provide the best guiding service, in GPS guided (map based) views, your GPS will continuously be used, also when you leave the app running in the background. In this way the app can notify you when you reach a new point in the active guide. Need to save battery? Exit the guide (or map) causes the GPS service to halt (in the Tales & Tours app).
