Self Guided Walking Tours with GPSmyCity
Back in the day when there was no smartphones and no wifi I used to travel with my beloved guidebooks everywhere. Every time I sat in a cafe, I would take a book out of my backpack and go through the pages. I loved the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides because they always separated a city in zones. That way I could find the attractions near me, by reading the pages of the zone I was in. I used their maps to navigate in the city, and I lost myself innumerable times.
Yeah, I’m that old.
Nowadays, I still love books, but I leave them at home. The convenience of my phone changed the way I travel, and the internet has become my primary source of information. Travel blogs are my inspiration. The problem now is the many sources of information. There are so many blog posts I would like to have with me during my travels.
You might be wondering, “Isn’t There a Better Way?”
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of carrying a heavy book or struggle to find all your bookmarks and notes you could simply use an app? Wouldn’t be even better if it worked offline?
An app that allows you to do your own city guided tour, featuring over 6,500 walks in more than 1,000 cities around the world.
With the GPSmyCity app you can read an article offline and create a self-guided walking tour to visit the attractions featured in the article. The app turns your mobile device into a personal tour guide and it works offline so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
You can access GPS-guided travel articles in two different ways:
1) click on a link below for the article you are interested in (if you haven’t already downloaded the free GPSmyCity app, you will see a prompt to do so). After downloading the app, you will be directed to the article, where you can choose UPGRADE to get the GPS-guided version.
2) From the GPSmyCity app, you can browse by the city to see which articles are available.
