Do you know in which hotel Picasso used to visit his lover, the ballerina Olga Khokhlova? Do you know that Catalan human castles were declared by UNESCO to be amongst the Masterpieces of the Intangible Heritage of Humanity?
Whether you are eager to wander through the gardens of Palau Robert, stroll down Rambla Catalunya, visit one of the city’s 43 markets for a bit of shopping or enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice or a café con leche and a pastry on a terrace bar, pocket guide will help you do it all.
PocketGuide, the world’s leading audio city guide application, reveals the best stories, insider hangouts and must-see sights in more than 100 major cities and tourist destinations.
PocketGuide turns your mobile device into a personal tour guide: The GPS figures out where you are, and a voice recording, made by a local guide, describes the sights around you. You don’t need to read text from your phone, just listen and enjoy a city’s attractions while your virtual tour guide explains it all and shares personal insights.
PocketGuide works offline, so you save on roaming charges, and it includes an offline map and loads of critical reviews that help you decide where to eat, drink and shop.
We also have fascinating themed tours, for those who want to go off the beaten path. Find the top tapas in Barcelona, get chic in NYC’s East Village or follow the trail of a 19th century serial killer in London.
Whether you're interested in the main sights or "the road less traveled", PocketGuide is ready to take you there.
Please note that continuous use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Performance and stability improvements, as well as iPhone X support.

Ratings and Reviews
Informative free tour of Montjuic
If you're a fan of audio guides in museums you'll love this app. It takes you through a nice walk on Montjuic where you can just enjoy the view & learn it's history without the need of carrying and diving into a guide book. Take your headphones with you as some of the spots are a bit noisy! (Note that only 1 tour of this guide is free.)
Not too bad!!
Using this while in barcelona. The offline map is quite useful if u want to save on international roaming costs. You can't complain for something that is free.
Tried to use this app on a recent visit to Barcelona. It promised use offline for maps - but each time I started it up it wanted to look up tours. Tours that I didn not want, and tours that I certainly did not want to download (over 3G while) abroad. I'd recommend just getting a guide book, looking up some restaurants on something like TripAdvisor and not bothering with this as it was pretty frustrating.
