How do I buy a tour?
Go to the Google Play store. Download the app through your Google Play account.
What kind of stuff do you talk about on the tours?
We cover a little bit of everything, and each tour is different. Basically we cover the best of a bunch of different topics so it doesn’t get boring
At the beginning of each tour, we’ll give you a brief summary of the place so you get the gist of how it got here. Then as you walk the streets, we continue on with the story as we tie in points of interest you’ll want to see. And we don’t just point them out, we summarize what you’d want to know about each one.
So, what points of interest do we include? We’re not going to take you to Midtown and not point out the Empire State Building, of course. Sure, we tell you abut the landmarks everyone has heard of. But we’re also going to point out cool historical locations, interesting architecture, movie locations, famous street art, and places that just have cool stories. Basically, we pick out the best stuff you’d want to know about a lot of different topics. And we put it together in a story format so it makes sense.
At the end of the tour, you’ll feel like you get the place. And you’ll have tons of stuff to point out to other people next time you’re in the neighborhood.
What if I don’t know the area very well?
You don’t need to. There’s a map. It’s GPS-linked. On top of that, we also give you step-by-step directions to get to the next stop. So you have the option of getting directions visually through the map, or written out in words. We even give you a picture of what you should be looking for and tell you how many feet away you are. We’ve covered everything!
Why should I pay for this tour when there are free or cheaper ones available?
There are. And we’ve taken them. In fact, that’s what motivated us to create our app. Our tour is more of a story, while most other tours mostly point out things and give you some brief details. If you’re looking for some quick details, there are some good one’s out there. If you want more info, that’s where we come in.
Will you tell me cool places to eat or bars to go to?
Short answer - not really. What’s hot this week probably wont be next. That’s NYC. So, we’ll point out restaurants or bars that have meaning to the neighborhood, but not necessarily trendy joints. Check out our “Things to Do” tab for ideas in each neighborhood.
When will the Apple version come out?
We’ve already started working on it and (fingers crossed) are hoping to have it released by mid June. If you’re anxious, you can check back early June for updates.
Why am I still asking questions?
We were wondering the same thing. Go buy the app already. It’s less than $5 bucks and we’re pretty sure you’re gonna have an amazing day in nyc.
