App Reviews

  • Fun Tour

    By How about you accept payment
    Great idea for people who want to DIA traditional tour but also want to take a Detour if they see something cool during the tour!
  • Let me opt out of notifications

    By mindlesswanderer
    I like the app, but PLEASE let me opt out of notifications when I’m not already on a tour. And while we are at it, stop tracking my background location when I’m not actively on a tour. I understand you want to tell me when there is a new tour nearby, but if you don’t give me a way to opt out I’ll just have to uninstall you.
  • I love it!

  • San Franciso Detour

    By whiteamerican
    Great way to explore and have fun with the family!
  • Brooklyn Bridge

    By Peter Gesswein
    I took the Brooklyn Bridge tour with Ken Burns guiding the audio tour and was surprised at how fun and exciting it was while making the tour come alive with music.
  • Excellent experience

    By SophChev
    My family and I used this while visiting Tokyo. The Ueno Park tour was fascinating and flawless - a walking historical tour given by a history professor with 40 years of experience. It would be tough to find a local guide who could offer such a rich lesson. We were concerned it would be difficult to keep sync with the narrator, but fear not. The app keeps up with your position and the AR guides you perfectly. Our guide gave us visual clues as well.
  • Simply amazing

    By CrickyMc
    So moving and interesting but also exciting.
  • Fun and unique way to tour places

    By RoseTea431
    Easy to do with friends and love how it tracks your location and adjusts accordingly
  • Price is too high

    By licooperk89
    Great app and great idea. But 7.99 for a single detour?! That’s way too much. Most complete apps on App Store are .99 or 4.99.
  • Loved the Austin Radiolab Detour!

    By Shopgirl713
    My friend and I finally did the Austin Detour by Radiolab and it was really cool! We’re from Austin but we still learned plenty about our downtown. And we loved the murder storyline. The tour ended with a 360 view of the city from the seventh story of a parking garage. We hope they’ll make more Austin detours!
