BaladoDiscovery presents hundreds of free self-guided tours, including maps, suggested routes, trails, points of interest, and GPS location, as well as photos, audio files, texts and video files. Discover fascinating stories, unique architecture or charming city street with local flavour and tucked-away treasures!

BaladoDiscovery is the worldwide pioneer of this type of sightseeing using a mobile app. Many of these circuits are in Canada and United States: from Vancouver to Halifax, passing by Quebec City, Sherbrooke, Maine and Louisiana. There are also several tours in Europe and in Africa. The smartphone becomes the virtual tour guide, sometimes in audio, sometimes via video or archival films, in addition to maps and geolocation. Explore pockets of local cultural heritage, discover breathtaking natural sights, visit a historical district or take a popular walking tour of a village, or town at your own rhythm.

The all-in-one application allows you to preload any tour and then to consult it later off-line, anywhere and at any time, without 3G Internet connection and data.

BaladoDiscovery offers the largest network of this type of touring experience in Canada. The same tourist guide interface is also available in Spanish and French. You can simply switch the App in French or Spanish - from the "About" menu in the App. Most tours are available in both languages; some even include a 3rd or 4th language.

Each circuit includes professional verified content. Strict standards are put in place to ensure the quality of all the material included in the excursions, including historical archives. Local heritage comes alive by means of authentic stories and anecdotes told by local people. Every tour is approved by at least one official local organization, and then is checked by our editing staff for appropriateness, language, copyright and style, before it becomes available to the public. This quality process is essential in creating the network of BaladoDiscovery's unique experiences.

Such a neat idea!

I have to say I’m liking this app! As a history buff, this is something that caught my eye and the app does not disappoint! I can’t wait until there are more tours and events added into the app, but overall I like the educational and historical aspect of this app a lot!
