Lately I’ve discovered City Maps and Walks app by GPSmyCity.com. I was pleased to get the chance to test and review this amazing app thanks to GPSmyCity.com. People know how much I love exploring new places and hidden gems on foot. I’ve visited so many cities and villages in Europe! I’ve never needed a travel agent or a tour guide to do it and I have lived my journey to the fullest, better than ever, discovering off the beaten path places without tours that often aren’t personalised. We all travel differently and you always have to follow your personality type when you travel. Trust me, there are so many tours you can do on your own without spending (and sometimes waste) your money. All you have to know is why you travel and some practical tips to plan your journey 🙂
City Walks app is a fab app for self-guided tours and I find it really great! Thanks to this app you can enjoy a walking tour to the discovery of your favourite cities throughout the world without worrying about getting lost and with no stress.
There is also a lite version which is free to download but it hasn’t got:
- higher resolution city map, which shows more streets names and interesting places to discover.
- tour route map, which is one of the most interesting features of this app because it guides you from one tour stop to another.
You can upgrade for $4.99 to a version to enjoy more functionality. I created an infographic to show you the top City Walks app features.
When you download the app you can choose among different categories and choose or create your own walking tour such as cultural tour, shopping tour, eating and drinking tour, history tour, religious tour and more. The app work offline, you don’t need 3G connection, data plan or any roaming charges. Don’t you think it is great?!
The mission of GPSmyCity.com is “to give everyone on the planet the choice of being their own tour guide on their next trip. Armed with the self-guided tours from GPSmyCity.com, you can enjoy, explore and venture off the beaten path; while always having the confidence of knowing where you are, where to go and how to get there.”
