  • If this app was a painting it would be a Picasso

    What this app has done is nothing less than redefining the travel experience. I work in travel innovation and have tested out hundreds of apps over the last years. Nothing even comes close neither in its understanding of the needs of the walking traveller nor in its subtle use of technogy to elevate the experience of exploration.
  • Fantastic thing to do

    We LOVED this. The narrator’s voice is calm and clear. The story telling is engaging and the well described directions ensures you are going exactly where you should. This was a great way to learn about history. We also liked the flexibility.. that we could do this on our own time and not to another persons schedule. Thanks for making these!
  • Highly recommend

    I recently took 4 of the tours on my San Francisco vacation. They were amazing. I loved the insight of the narrators and their personal stories. They definitely pointed out places you’d never notice if you were just walking down the street. We had a little bit of difficulty syncing the tours with the 5 people in our group so we ended up just listening individually. It worked fine that way. I hope to do a couple more tours on a New York City trip I have planned for November!

    I love this app. Well produced audio, interesting, with various levels of interaction in the tours. So much fun, and the fact that you can sync with friends is awesome. I’ve introduced many to this app, and they all love it. Great work, Detour!

    Just moved to a city. This app has helped me learn about my new city in a really neat and personal way that I wouldn’t be able to do by myself.
  • Hard to use

    Even after getting past the first time confusion, the app is very counterintuitive. I’m deleting it.
  • Always recommend this to friends

    We live in SF and have been blown away by so many of these tours. Fabulous experiences. We did one in Philadelphia - which was terrible - so make sure to research who produced it before touring.
  • Wonderful experience
