It’s perfect if you want to do a guided tour but go at your own pace. It’s easy to follow and well planned out. If you walk up to the landmark the audio plays automatically. Very informative, would recommend and would do other self guided walking tours from the same company.

A perfunctory explanation about one of America's most historic districts. It's up to the listener to seek out additional information during the tour. The good thing about the tour is that you can download it to your device and then use it offline.

Does this include the additional audio from the Learn More substops? Or does this mean that you would like those additional audio stories to be added into the main audio stories? Some clarification would be greatly appreciated because we want to make this a tour that everyone will love! You can connect directly with me at actiontours.booking@gmail.com Thank you so much!
