App Reviews

  • Great audio tours!

    By Juliadewahl
    What a unique way to explore a city
  • Phenomenal and rich narration

    By Bloopydoopier
    Absolutely love the experience detour brings to the city wanderer, telling hidden stories behind the urban fabric with sensitive and rich characters. Not to mention the seamless navigation and detail direction-giving "turn left at the crooked purple mailbox". I highly recommend the detour experience to visitors and locals alike!
  • Great idea, but many tours need to be updated

    By 20moreminutes
    I’ve tried several and they are hard to follow because some of the landmarks are no longer there.
  • Well produced and unexpectedly fun

    By Wed8tt443
    Wasn't necessarily expecting much but this was very well done, tries the Chicago River tour and learned a lot! Will try more
  • Great way to see the city!

    By Cwillo
    Very cool, loved that we could sync the group so we were all hearing the same thing.
  • I ❤️ this app!

    By AHyche
    My trip to San Francisco has been enhanced so much by using this app. I have learned about the city’s history with the Cool Gray City tour and its novel approach to the problem of trash with the Trash tour. Now choosing another tour. Great narrative and clear directions incorporating GPS to make sure you stay on the tour route. Thanks for the excellent quality tours!
  • Love it

    We have taken detours in Boston and SF. Wish we knew when we were in Berlin. Easy to follow. Very interesting. Personal tour with someone with something special to share.
  • Only some cities

    By Stllrckn
    There are only a few select cities included and I can’t figure out how to search. It keeps defaulting to San Francisco. My friend who recommended it found it really useful in Europe though.
  • Awesome City tours!

    By lsheehy
    Too bad this is going away. This app is so great when checking out new cities or exploring your own! It was great being connected to everyone in our group and having location services help make it seamless. I hope Bose opens this app back up!
  • LOVE this app

    By Eekayem
    This app gives you the freedom to pick and choose from a variety of affordable tours and start them when and where you want to, giving you the flexibility to organize your trip as you like, without worrying about if it’s a holiday (tour companies can be closed), or if it’s too late at night or if there will be spots left on a tour. This just takes all the hassle out of organizing/stressing over large group tours, and is perfect for travelers moving quickly from one place to another and with not much time to plan. The only thing i wish is that it covered more cities; but the cities it does cover, THANK YOU.
