Didn’t know and wasn’t told that this was not a guided tour! Horrible, never used it or went on it! Nobody wants a guided tour on your phone and I paid for four people if I had known I would have only gotten one ticket!

Sorry this experience is not what you were looking for. We do our best in the title and description to make clear that this is a solo gps, self guided tour on your phone, on the WalknTours app, We understand this experience is not for everyone, but those that take it love it and often take additional tours. Your purchase never expires so we hope you'll give us a try. Enjoy :) The WalknTours app offers solo tours navigated by your smart phone. Go at your own pace, on your own schedule and on your own terms. It's like a real life tour guide, only it's on your phone, way more convenient and a better story teller.

We arrived where we were suppose to go and entered the word given into the app and the app wouldn’t work.

Sorry to hear that! The experience code is in step 3 of the booking email. For this tour you purchased the 3 tours in one package and need to click on the "City Tour Package" in the WalknTours app and enter the experience code there to unlock all 3 tours. Feeling sad you missed out on this fun solo smart phone navigated tour in Boston :(. If you ever run into an issue text or call me at 617-991-3269 and I'm here to help! Or email at
The tour itself was good.

The tour was great but don’t buy it through aviator. The interface is too confusing. Go directly to the app and purchase. It took me the better part of an hour and a phone call to the app help line to get it to work.

Thanks for using the WalknTours app! The benefit of buying on Viator is you'll save big, nearly 50%! This tour is $8 on Viator and $14.99 if you buy directly on the WalknTours app. As we spoke on the phone you had an issue using the experience code. To take the tour you will. 1. Get the WalknTours App 2.. Register your account 3. Choose Boston and select the City Tour Package. Then use the experience code in your booking email to unlock the tour. The whole process take a few minutes :) And as always, if you have questions you can contact us at 61-991-3269 or email us at Thank you for taking our tour!
App. Not user friendly
, Aug 2021
App not user friendly. You pay 7.99 then u paid 5.99 from the tour. Will not recommend this to anybody.

Yikes! I see you did not read your booking email :( The booking email includes the instructions and experience code to unlock 3 tours in the WalknTours app (a $17.97) for $7.99. So you actually saved nearly $10 on the tour. As mentioned in the booking "Do not purchase in the app. Please use the Experience Code in the booking email." Also, you can write me anytime or call me (as mentioned in the email) or 617-991-3269, I'm here to help :) The Booking email includes the instructions. 1. Get the WalknTours App 2. use the Experience code to unlock the tour. 3. Go to the Boston Common Visitors Center and press "start experience". I hope this helps and you can unlock the tours and take it later :). You were not ripped off. You were not cheated. Please ask next time before writing this kind of review. We are small businesses (often only one person) working really hard to provide our customers with great local experiences. We work really really hard to do this. And 100's of travelers have written reviews that they love this tour, so it hurts when you write a terrible review and you did not even take the tour :(
Great tour!

Did the whole trail. Loved being able to stop and start and the dig deeper options.. Learned revolutionary history and enjoyed visiting the food stores in th North End
No experience code provided

Do you not use this service. The walking tours audio that I purchased asks for an experience code. Wietor never provided me with an experience code. Don’t waste your money.

Hi, the code is in the ticket / booking email. The tickets shows 4 steps to take the tour. The code is in Step 3 of the instructions. 1. Get the WalknTours app on the App Store or Google Play. 2. Register 3. Use the experience code provided in your email to unlock the tour. 4. Go to the Boston Common visitors center and press start experience. Sorry you missed the code. I did see you did take the Freedom Trail Tour and gave it a 5 star rating after taking it, so thank you for that! In addition you did email me asking about the code and 2 minutes later I replied with the booking instructions and the code to unlock the tour. Thanks for using WalknTours!
Very informative tour.
, Jul 2021
The tour was great. Very informative. A wonderful way to learn about The Freedom Trail. The narrator was funny and has provided a vast array of information in a clear and sometimes humorous way.
Listen and Learn

A wealth of information! I so enjoyed the opportunity to stop and explore further when I wanted to. I liked the different narrators. They added authenticity to the experience. The GPS “find me” did not always work. I enjoyed this experience so much more than a traditional guided tour. This tour was money well spent!

Unfortunately we did not have the educational experience we hoped for. Spent the entire time downloading on our phone instead of working. Gave up after 20 minutes and went for cannolis.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
Sorry to hear that Kathy, we have so many happy users we are sad to hear this happened. This issue was more than likely due to lack of memory on your phone. I'll be sure to include a note in the booking instructions that if users are facing download challenges to make sure the memory on their phone is sufficient. Also we suggest in all our booking details and in the app to download the tour before going. Cellular signals can be unpredictable and this could have been a thing with Verizon/ATT, some don't work well in Boston :) Thanks for the feedback! Sorry again. I issued a you a refund. I hope next time you'll give us another chance and you enjoy the tour.
Excellent tour
, Mar 2021
Excellent tour option!! Loved that I could go at my own speed, stop and go as I wanted. Also great for people that want to start a little later or whatever is better with their schedule. The actual information during the tour was great!! Also fun that they don’t make it monotone by using the different characters! Will definitely be using again. Excellent tour
