GPSmyCity is an app that provides walking tours throughout many cities in the world. They offer a free version and a premium version. They are currently giving away premium memberships for free! Continue reading to find out more about the app and the giveaway:
The GPSmyCity app does many things very well:
Accommodates your schedule-
There is no schedule you need to adhere to with the GPSmyCity app. You can choose to do the tours whenever you wish. If you are an early riser and want to take a tour in the morning, no problem. If you want to sleep in and have an amazing breakfast, that's fine too. If you want to do a tour after dinner, the app doesn't mind. You can do the tours at any time, day or night.
Customizable to your preferences-
There are a variety of GPSmyCity walking tours available to choose from in most major cities. Also, if there is something that doesn't interest you, you can simply skip it. You can even design your own tour for many cities. If you want to spend more time at a certain site, you are more than welcome to. GPSmyCity is customizable to your preferences.
Offers options for a wide variety of cities-
There are a plethora of cities with walking tours available on GPSmyCity. Additionally, many cities that do not have walking tours will at least have recommendations and articles about the city.
No payments (or guilt) required-
Unlike GPSmyCity, most "free" walking tours are tips-based. At the end of the tour the guide will typically ask for a tip for the previous hours. Although it is called a free tour, it is customary to tip the guide. If you don't you will look like an inconsiderate jerk and will likely feel guilty about not tipping. However, this is not the case with GPSmyCity, where tipping is not even possible.
Lack of human interaction-
There is very little that GPSmyCity does not do well. However, because it is an app and not a human being, there is no guide to ask specific questions to while on your tour. Also, you do not get the entertainment value of an in-person tour (but as mentioned earlier, you also don't have to pay for that interaction and entertainment).
GPSmyCity is a great app for travelers. It provides a great way to see many cities around the world and gives you many options. I can't think of a good enough reason not to download it. If you haven't downloaded it already, you can get it at their website or from your phone's app store.
