Good but way overpriced for its content
Fernando594_M, Apr 2024
It’s a good self-guided tour if you are in the area. I’ve done dozens of these self guided tours all over the world on a different app (VoiceMap) and this one is very expensive for the content and the stories. It should be around $7, not $15.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
I'm sorry you felt my Plymouth Pilgrims Audio Tour was overpriced, Fernando. I recently increased the price by adding unique content and new features to the app, aiming to provide a richer experience than standard tours that might use AI voices or essential content. I strive to offer value through depth and unique insights. If there's anything specific you think could further enhance the tour's value, I'm open to suggestions. Your feedback is crucial for continuous improvement.
This tour saved our trip!
Bronwyn_S, Jan 2024
Visiting Plymouth in the off-season when all the museums and attractions are closed was a bit disappointing, BUT this walking tour saved the entire trip!! My fiancé and I were still able to get the Plymouth experience and history through this tour. We will definitely try others.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Bronwyn, I'm so glad the Self-Guided Historical Walking Tour in Plymouth turned your trip around! It's beautiful that you could still enjoy Plymouth's rich history and experience with your fiancé. If you're eager to discover more places at your own pace, don’t forget to check out my Action+ Tour Bundle for over 100 more self-guided tours.
Bad Trip.
William_S, Jul 2023
Not being able to locate basically half of the landmarks thanks to terrible self guided map directions.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
I am sorry if you had trouble finding the landmarks using the map directions. It would be helpful if you could provide more specific information on the issues you faced. This will enable me to improve the tour experience for future visitors. Your purchased tour is still valid and can be accessed on another device or for a future visit. Additionally, we can offer you an exchange for a different tour if you prefer.
No whales but still had fun
Robin_L, Sep 2022
We saw a sun fish. We didnt see any close ups of the whales so they gave us rain check tickets for up to a yr.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
I'm sorry, but your review concerns a whale-watching tour, not the Self-Guided Walking Tour. Could you please provide the correct review so I can better assist you?
Having the guidance from...
Sonia_R, Sep 2022
Having the guidance from the narrator made everything so much easier and we loved to do it at our own pace.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thanks so much for your feedback, Sonia! That flexibility is one of the best features of our self-guided tour. I'm thrilled that my tour of Plymouth added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the US — hopefully, you’ll get the chance to try them next time! Also, just to remind you, the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit.
Mayflower 2 and Plymouth...
cheryl_o, Jul 2022
Mayflower 2 and Plymouth Rock were highlights. Information didn’t really start until we walked quite a ways away from the visitor center. Starting the walk at the Mayflower would have allowed some of our party of seniors to finish the walk stead of stopping before the end. Very steep hill to climb at the end!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks for the feedback Cheryl! There is a short walk from the starting point to the Mayflower in order to provide visitors with a little background info before they hit the highlights. I also prefer providing a starting point near a convenient parking lot. Thanks!
