Loved it!

Totally worth the money! Was able to go at my own pace and on my own route of the Freedom Trail.

Freedom trail - kind of lame

Bought a couple passwords to use this to follow the Freedom Trail in Boston. Not nearly enough content and what did trigger was not very detailed. Also the app burns battery pretty fast. You can follow the trail yourself by following the brick guideway in the sidewalks and most important landmarks have signage that relates as much or more than the app.

Did you try the Learn Mores at each stop? They contain lots of extra info. I think you’ll really find them informative! The tour does burn battery but that’s inevitable since it requires GPS to function. We’re always looking out for ways to improve that though! Thanks for your candid feedback!

Definitely worth it.
