This was absolutely brilliant, the directions were so easy to follow and the app was really easy to work. The information was interesting, informative and fun. Being able to explore a new city with guide but being able to pause or take more time with something that interested me was fantastic. Will definitely be using this sgain.

Easy to navigate. Informative. Loved the ability to start and stop whenever I wanted. Take break, miss the rain, grab a coffee and resume later.

Excellent tour. Worked brilliantly. Could stop and restart as required such as after stops in cafes or pubs for a meal. Great value

Very easy to use, directions are very clear. Gave us a good sample of sites from the various time periods.

We loved the self guided tour. Our first DIY and like it.
