  • I’m new here

    By DGranato
    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

    By c.urmudgeon
    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

    Detour is such a special, thoughtful, and intimate experience. I feel so lucky that it exists!
  • Location

    By poppyblueflower
    Why is it that there aren’t other locations? Why am I set in Chicago when I’m in Tennessee
  • Amazing, Whimsical & Serendipitous

    By mwebbl
    Such a great way to learn more about your own city, or one you’re visiting. Makes learning history accessible to anyone!
  • Best tour app ever

    By big johnan
    I’ve been wanting to invent this app for years! It’s finally here. I don’t know what’s happening since bose bought it but everything is free. You’re making a huge mistake if you don’t try it.
  • Great features

    By Bertha331
    Between the GPS location services to keep the narration and the walking synced, and the group syncing to keep everyone in the same moment, this walking tour app is a great way to visit new places with an insider’s perspective. The storytelling, personal aspect, and encouragement to support local businesses are great benefits.
  • Detour if fantastic

    By KellyJones4
    Unbelievable experience! The app knew exactly where we were and explained our surroundings as if the narrator was with us!
