How do I buy a tour?
Our app is available as a free download for both iOS and Android in the Google Play and Apple App stores. Each tour is available as an in-app purchase for $4.99 each.
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. We found that a lot of tours simply pointed out spots and list off a few facts about them. Our tours were designed to feel like you’re hanging with a friend who lives here and is telling you all about their neighborhood. The tour is told in a story format, so at the end you understand how the neighborhood grew into what you see before you today.
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.
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.
