Cheaper than a guided tour
Okay, I see some negative reviews about the map and the clunky app, but I have to say for the price, and yes, including the new yearly subscription, it’s still very worth it. I have used 6 of the paid tours and a few free ones with GPSmyCity. I started with the free, but when I paid for the upgrades (less than $5 at the time), I was pleased. Because I travel at least once or twice a year, I’m willing to pay the subscription mainly to support the team. I just recently came back from Florence where my wife and I spent over $200 for a private guided walking tour that included a fantastic lunch. No complaints, the guide was great and we learned a lot, but it was only 4 hours long and we were at his mercy. For less than $20 using this app, we would’ve been able to map out the tour we wanted, read in advance, and take our time. Yes, you can use Google and Pocket Earth and other free tools, but come on - for $20 you can get a well organized and fun tour with a pretty decent offline map. Spending hundreds in flight and hotels, I don’t $20 for something that would cost 3 times or more for a true guided tour. Oh, and the support team has been awesome for times when I did have problems with the app. I’ve been using them for years and will continue to do so. Don’t let the few negative ads steer you away - give it a shot...
Superb travel guide
I visited Kraków Poland for the first time with my daughter. We thought it would be ideal to have a self-guide in an app to use so we could go on our own schedule to visit sites, and not be limited by the schedule of a regular local guide. I found the GPSmyCity city app and set up a tour in several parts of the city. It worked wonderfully and we had a great day. It really allowed us to go to the sites, learn about them from the description in the app, but also stop in any little shop we found along the way. It has made me think that it is much easier to get to know a city. I am going to use it for my own city of Boston. I highly recommend it even if someone is going to work with a local guide. And I thought the cost to purchase all the data for a city was very reasonable for just 4.99. I did not have any ads to worry about and the app just worked great.
My absolute best sightseeing app - you owe t to yourself to give it a try!
Dear Tobin, I have used GPSmyCity all over the world - it is the best app to use if you like charting your own way through destinations. Walk categories are arranged to appeal to those with varied interests and you can also set up custom routes. This is my must have app for my travel! I have used this app in over a dozen different travel destinations from Kuala Lumpur to Lucca to Copenhagen. I no longer travel without first looking to see if there is a city maps and walks edition for the city I am traveling to. The app provides so much flexibility to set your itinerary, allowing you to select only those things that you wish to see. The maps are accurate and the app will establish the most efficient walking route based on the points of interest selected. Try it once, you will love it.
Good intro to cities
This app is great for learning my way around cities and just exploring by foot, which I always prefer to organized tours, buses, etc. The few extra dollars to unlock the real-time maps and tours is well worth it too. The map function is very reliable; I use it over even google maps for figuring out directions. This is also good for getting an preview of cities I might want to visit and explore, to see how close the sights are to each other, where might be some convenient locations to get a hotel in, etc. I’m glad I found this app, highly recommend! I do wish the app wouldn’t reload itself after a little idle time tho, makes me have to re-navigate back into my tour every time. But that’s the only thing I would change.
Issue Resolved, Used in Carcassonne
There were problems at first, but the Support quickly fixed them. This was a good app to explore the medieval city of Carceconne. It provided walks in and outside the city walls. The walks were scenic, through parks and pedestrian bridges and back into the city.
Athens, Santorini and Tel Aviv
GPSmyCity is worth the upgrade. This is the best app so far for the adventurous, self-guided traveler. I am just discovering the apps full potential. We used the app for the first time on a two week vacation in Israel and Greece (Tel Aviv, Athens and Santorini).The city orientation walks and city walks were particularly useful. The walking apps work offline, unlike Google and Apple, and bring you through many local areas so you can start a tour from where you actually are. The text to audio narration made it possible to actually enjoy the attractions rather than having your nose buried on/in your phone. We visited The Bouzouki Shop in Athens and chatted with the owners. They were pleasantly surprised that they were included in the city orientation tour. A great vacation and experience.
Best Travel App Available!
My husband and I have been traveling for over a year and have been to 36 different countries. GPSmyCity has been our personal tour guide during a lot of our trip. It has been fantastic to tour different cities at our own pace and without the cost of hiring a tour guide. With the built-in walking maps with audio that can be downloaded and used without WiFi, it's easy to get around any city. I also love the different articles to find out about things to do before we arrive to a new destination. Can't imagine traveling without this app and have recommended it to many of my friends and people we meet along our travels.
Endless cycle of frustration
The App is fine in the rare instances that it works. Purchased for a trip to Greece in March. Would not let me download maps insisting I had to purchase the app. The Restore function didn’t work. Developer got it working and I was able to use it in Greece. Currently used in May in Portugal and the Czech Republic. Now can’t get out of the endless cycle of being told to Purchase in order to download cities in Austria. The app is probably fine if you have an unlimited phone and data plan and lots of free time while traveling. For me the effort just isn’t worth it anymore. Picked up a Rick Steves book for the area and it works every time I open it. This app has potential but the fact that it has a “Restore” option built in tells me this is a perpetual problem with this app. I would recommend passing on this one and trying one of the other apps or just get a book.
Really Wonderful App
We are constant travelers and have used this app in so many cities around the world. It is more than worth the cost with great navigation, really insightful suggestions, and up to date information. Those whole claim that Google Maps is its equal are wrong. This is not just a navigation app; it is meant to give details about culture, history, architecture, bars, restaurants, and every other aspect of visiting a city. It is our “go to app” when we first arrive in a new city. The walks are complete and informative. You get way more than you pay for with this fabulous app. Don’t hesitate.
Ideal for independent travelers!
This is the perfect app for independent travelers. We have stumbled all over Europe trying to piece together routes to what we wanted to see, & so often ended up exhausted & having missed something we walked a block away from. No more! GPSMyCity is unobtrusive, informative, & a real pleasure to use. We are leaving in a few minutes for a ‘custom walk’ we created in the App last night, to see more of the marvelous city of Prague. The app now knows our hotel location, everything we’d like to see, & has made us a route to follow. It’s the best!!
Great app for traveling
I have been a user of this app for years and have used it around the world. Prior to buying the subscription I purchased individual maps. Much less than paying a tour guide and you can use it at your own pace. My wife and I love walking around new international cities and learning about places to see and visit. The maps are detailed and will track you around the city. You can also create your own custom walks. GPSmyCity is the first app we open in a new city for an orientation walk.
GPSed my cities!
I have been using GPS My City for several years during my travels. I always check there once I've picked my destinations. We have saved a lot of money designing own city tours. Definitely geared to our needs! If I had only one travel app, this would be it! I'm very happy to have seen continued improvement over the years. A big upgrade was being able to fully download for international travel In the days of little or $$$ fees. The apps are now awesome! Full versions definitely rock! Way to go!!
Hardly works at all
The navigation turns on and off randomly. Some of the information is outdated. The phone keeps turning off while using the app and needs to be turned on again, causing me to lose my place on the tour. Some of the tours just show you some pictures and don’t tell you anything about the site. Sometimes the dot and fan that indicate where I am starts spinning around. The fan is too sensitive to body movement while walking and causes the navigation to change instructions over and over again. I wasted a morning of my vacation getting frustrated and not learning much. Also wasted my money on the app. The app is a great idea. It just doesn’t work very well.
During my trip to Copenhagen, I used the paid version of GPS my city for getting around. It was easy to find attractions and to also save other places I wanted to visit. Probably the best feature, since it was made mainly for walking, is that there is a cone showing what direction you’re going. That way it was easy to tell if I started out the right way. The suggested walking tours were OK. Overall, it made my life easier and my trip pleasant!
We decided to take a trip into Philadelphia at the last minute. We weren’t sure what we wanted to see and being able to look at the options was so helpful. We mapped several routes before settling on one that worked for us. We ventured off of the route a couple of times but it was super easy to get back to the next stop. I can’t wait to try on our next adventure! The hardest part is deciding where we want to go next!
