Good except fo a major bug
by blanger on 2019/08/18 14:02
If your device has internet access, the app will attempt to access its server when it launches. This is ok, except for when the server is down. In that case the app is frozen, trying to reach the server. This is bad for an app that is supposed to run WiFi independent. A workaround is to put your device in airplane mode before launching the app, that will get you access to your stored city maps.
Way underwhelming
by Nick1aaa on 2019/08/17 18:18
So many things that could be better with this app. For example why not spend the time to research each place rather than give a truncated version of Wikipedia entry. Also the map feature does not work properly. I really hate it. Not worth it
Hardly works at all
by LynetteEve on 2019/08/15 13:09
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 Some of the information is outdated.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.
Absolute rubbish app
by shashipr on 2019/08/15 12:49
I had high hopes for this app, but it completely disappointed me. I bought the subscription hoping to use it in London, Scotland and Ireland as it appeared to have a lot “content” for those cities. As I got this just before I left, I didn’t get a chance to fully review it. As I started using the app, it became obvious that the content was mostly for Wikipedia, announced by a robot voice! The gps navigation is a joke also. I was expecting something along the line of gypsy guides that let you walk around and talk when you reach a location. There is nothing more to gain by subscribing. Just use some of the other apps or Wikipedia. What a sham!
Ideal for independent travelers!
by CK Austin on 2019/08/13 07:31
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!!
GPSed my cities!
by BearlyChatty on 2019/08/08 14:59
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!!
Self walking tour
by lhhgrandma on 2019/08/01 04:08
It’s great that you can design your own walking tours on each city. Totally custom the way you want. I really like it
Outstanding
by Owasso81 on 2019/07/17 19:33
The App is easy to use. It provides an extensive list of sites and allows creation of self designed routes.
Horrible
by memell94 on 2019/07/17 05:15
This app is the worst I’ve used in a long time. Doesn’t really help exploring the city, you have to do all the reading yourself.
Not worth the money
by GiuseppetheRater on 2019/07/16 23:53
Voice directions are not accurate, and the voice is so low it’s hard to hear as you walk around. Text descriptions are not accurate. The text said that the 40 story Albany state administration building was the tallest building in the state. Tell New York City that! It uses up your battery fast! It used up my battery on my new iPhone 10 fast. You are better off using Google Maps or a number of free apps instead of wasting $4.99 on this. If I could get a refund, I’d ask for it.
High hopes but no gps
by Vvyivtyivtyuftyu on 2019/07/13 21:18
I loved that I could customize my walking tours but there are locations on the app that are out of business. It also did not have a gps locator do I needed to toggle between this app and a map app. Also the routes do not bring you back to your original location. Great concept but needs more work.
Could have been so much more
by tkiyak on 2019/07/13 16:09
I had great hopes for this app, and would not have minded paying for the annual subscription upgrade as I travel frequently. Unfortunately my test run in Bern was quite disappointing. First, if you switch to another app, the app resets. So switch to camera to take a picture and you have to start all over again. First you load the app again, then the city package, then load the tour all over again, and guess what? It did not track where you are in the tour so you have to figure out where you left last. Second, several of the points of interest were mismarked, some of them were a block or more away from where the map pointed to. Third, in between the points of interest, the maps seem to take you through the shortest route, but not necessarily the most interesting or picturesque street. Several times, I found myself in back alleys or empty streets that nobody else seemed to be on, even when the next street parallel was extremely crowded and much more pretty. As a result I ended up giving up. While second and third reasons are minor annoyances that you can work around, the first reason (the fact that the app completely restarts every time you switch to take a picture) is unforgivable. UPDATE: I appreciate that the developer took time to respond. Hopefully that's a sign that some of the problems mentioned in my review can be resolved. On the issue of background apps: at the the, I was running only three apps, Google Maps (because of my frustrations with GPSmyCity), GPSmyCity, and ProCamera. There were no other background apps running, as I regularly close all background apps (despite Apple's recommendation to not do that for performance reasons). So I don't think that was the reason.
Indispensable!
by Kwirky 100 on 2019/07/13 13:40
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!
Great functional and helpful app
by bvviews on 2019/07/12 08:09
Very useful app that always worked! Downloaded and discarded several others for lack of functionality—-not this one. Used it as a starting point for seeing sights, and also just as information to look up something we stumbled across. Yes, all of this you can do with Google, but for basic sightseeing of all the most important sites, this app can’t be beat for convenience, accuracy and quick access to info. Plus you can’t always access WiF, this you already have. Especially great if you end up somewhere with a bit of time, want to use it to see something, but don’t want to waste a lot of time to have to plan a route. Perfect for business travel in that sense, or long layovers. We found info about tickets and etc to be correct, too. Added bonus!
Amazing
by Omair-1975 on 2019/07/11 10:48
Don’t look at the negative reviews . This is hands down the best city exploration app on the market . It is good for a single day stay in a city and for those who want to second a few days . You can read about places , get address information , make your own walks . It makes walking tours extremely efficient . Try it and you won’t regret it .
Disorganized, lacking menus, Scotsman narration?
by Bytemetoo on 2019/07/09 11:23
I don’t know where to begin—literally. There is a customary and expected START button for map apps. Not here. Seems silly to make it so difficult to find the upgrade menu so that you have gps functions. All I can tell you is it is not where the diminutive help page tells you. The English video guide is presented in a difficult to understand accent—Scottish, maybe? Nice concept, badly in need of professional UI designer.

Issue Resolved, Used in Carcassonne
by John3998YF on 2019/06/26 20:58
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.
App was of no value
by RfR71 on 2019/06/25 15:42
I download the app, paid for a subscription to the city of Assisi, Italy map. Once we arrived and tried to navigate to a plaza by the app it was worthless. It was confusing, slow, and not helpful in identifying the direction we were moving. We resorted to asking directions for a local resident to the tourist store where we obtained a paper map. Never went back to the app again.
Deleted all my data
by vino873 on 2019/06/22 17:16
Not good
Sounds great but a big letdown.
by Mikeatcut on 2019/06/18 14:40
I subscribed to this as I am traveling to Japan shortly and wanted to plan some city walks. The app is extremely difficult to use. There is no continuity in the points on the various walks and all of the maps are in Japanese. Whilst I would love to learn the language it doesn’t help me in this instance. I also tried the customized walks feature but the search facility could not find even the most popular tourist attractions. Thankfully the easiest thing about this app is cancelling the subscription! Forget this app, do a little research, and plan your own walks.
Must have travel app
by World Traveler from LA on 2019/06/13 21:10
I’ll never travel without this app again! It lets me take city walking tours to the places I choose on MY schedule and at MY pace. Cost is far less than the tours I used to take whenever I traveled. Also guides me to restaurants, shopping, etc effortlessly. And when I had a question, the customer service was helpful and far faster than any I’ve ever experienced. I Love This app
Don't work
by ghgthgtdhk on 2019/06/13 05:08
Tried using it around my city, kept saying I'm not in the area. Been trying to find upgrade button nowhere to be found. Won't let me use the GPS when I click on it. It's basically just an app that you look at. Hopefully developer can help before I leave for my trip.
Best application
by scholarNYC on 2019/05/24 19:05
This app suits anyone who likes traveling. The app guides travelers through city sightseeings and at the same time gives an autonomy to choose or change the routes. I used this app during my travel in Belgrade, Rome, Florence, Stockholm and absolutely satisfied with the product.
Endless cycle of frustration
by U.S. Consumer on 2019/05/23 08:50
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.
Simply Doesn’t Work
by donco6 on 2019/05/06 03:38
Bought this for a visit to AMS. I’m here now and it is utterly useless. No mapping feature at all. Just shows a blank screen when you tap an attraction. And, yes, I downloaded the upgrade and the “offline” maps. Don’t waste your money.
GPSmyCity

Found this app while visiting Savannah. Super helpful! Great app, saved us a ton of time so we were able to see more sights
GPSmy city
by Missica 1996 on 2019/04/26 09:14
Doesn’t take or locate anything not on a tour. Spent 20 minutes trying to get it to take my hotel onto the map as a saved point. Forget about it.
Excellent App
by Dan___L on 2019/04/24 04:27
It’s easy to use and has the offline GPS feature. It’s definitely worth the money as I paid about $12.95 to use the app to use in Milan, Vienna, Budapest, and Amsterdam for my 12-day trip to Europe. I used the app to pre-plan my trip and used it when I was on location by following the location I marked previously. Advice: Book your hotel AFTER you have marked the places you want to visit with this app so you can book a hotel close to where you will visit. I used the app together with Google Map which tells me what transportations I can take between locations, including walking, taxi or public transportations.
Really Wonderful App
by NLVW on 2019/04/23 15:34
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.
Worked well on first use
by BrianW2012 on 2019/04/20 19:15
Recently used for first trip to Charleston, SC. Used Custom feature to prepare walking tour - worked as designed. Site articles provide insights to addition tour sites. I plan to use app on upcoming trip to Portugal and Spain.
Great for the road less traveled
by PalmTreeMusings on 2019/04/19 11:06
I travel to some pretty out-of-the-way places, and I’ve found GPSMyCity to be a great substitute for carrying around guidebooks or having to bookmarks lots of travel blogs. I’ve used pre-set routes and Ive created my own. I’d recommend this app for any frequent traveler.
I never buy apps
by Cutter112 on 2019/04/06 15:50
In my life I have now purchased Two apps. AnyList and GPS My city. GPS my city is amazing. It’s locating or tracking feature is better than google maps. We used it for the first time in Strasbourg and it was perfect. Can’t wait to use it in Heidelberg tomorrow. All travelers need this app.
Superb travel guide
by Hannah1133 on 2019/04/01 13:58
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.
Fun way to tour
by DorothyLouise on 2019/03/26 13:09
This app is a great way to see a new city or explore one you think you know well. I’ve learned so much! And, you can download the map so you’re not using data as you walk. I especially like the “must see” suggestions!
Very useful with responsive customer service
by singnt on 2019/03/19 22:41
I have lifetime access and have found this app to be very useful. Travel articles are a great read. Downloading of maps and city walks is straightforward. I have had to get customer service help and I have found them to be responsive and timely.
Great travel tool
by Culsuup on 2019/03/17 01:36
I love this app, especially the create your own walks. It allows me to tailor a walk to our likes, plus it allows me to see the street by street directsions.
Required updates
by TD127345 on 2019/03/11 00:30
Every time I opened the app, even after I upgraded to the paid version, I was notified that the app was out of date and required a 16 Mg update. That’s bad enough on wi-fi but an app killer when you are on the street and on cellular data. I am uninstalling this immediately.
GPSmyCity
by GK's Honey on 2019/03/07 18:36
Really like this app. Have used during two 6 week cruises to Mediterranean/Aegean seas countries and to SE Asia/Japan, Korea, and China. I leave my phone in airplane mode to not have data charges. I can find my way around with this app.
So Helpful
by Headofsprees US on 2019/03/07 17:22
This app is one of many tools I use for travel planning and while on trips. I travel extensively and love GPSMyCity.
Best Travel App Available!
by SparkyDog2004 on 2019/03/05 23:30
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.
App is worth what you pay for it
by Soodi23 on 2019/03/05 19:05
Want to read badly-written travel articles? This is your app! Want actual maps? Sorry, that costs extra.
Very helpful when traveling
by gary travels on 2019/03/05 14:12
I have used this app many times when traveling to different countries. I generally review and download the articles in advance of the trip. Then.....when in the travel location I can click a "go there" link in the article and the GPS kicks in telling me how to get to a particular point of interest.
Great App
by stlokcphx on 2019/03/03 12:51
Great for travelers. A couple of suggestions: 1. Ability to combine maps 2. Ability to search for other points in city
Tour Guide in Your Pocket
by kayaker59 on 2019/03/01 15:30
This app is great if you are traveling to cities you are unfamiliar with and want to see the sights. The app will create a walking map that will take you to the sights you want to see. Really fantastic!!!
Superbly Useful
by johnnyrator on 2019/02/25 22:22
We used this app extensively during a recent trip to Southern Italy. Getting around unfamiliar territory was a breeze with GPSmyCity. Even better was the ability to set locations. This allowed us to pre-plan a lot of routes and saved enormous amounts of time and trouble.
Best walking maps
by George Feb on 2019/02/18 17:49
I have used this app to plan my visits to a new city and to map out a walk around the town. You can download the cities you will visit so you do not need wifi connection. After your trip you can release them from memory and load your next set. My favorite feature is the custom walks. Here you can setup what you want to see in the order you want to see it. I have used it in Spain for Madrid, Seville snd Barcelona. I have also used it in Italy for Venice and Rome. Our next trip will be a month seeing Frankfurt, Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Happy travels..
Very Helpful!
by RFPD64 on 2019/02/06 19:12
I’m not a tour kind of person, so this is great for me. Four cities under my belt, many more to come!
My absolute best sightseeing app - you owe t to yourself to give it a try!
by TSD04 on 2019/01/10 10:11
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.
Great offline sightseeing app
by NW T on 2019/01/02 11:49
Well worth the $4.99 per city for a walking guide not dependent on an internet connection. Lots of info.
GPSmyCity
by yoç on 2018/12/30 07:47
These are some of the all-time best guides to navigating cities I’ve ever used. The last city I visited (1 month) was Istanbul, not a particularly easy city. GPSmyCity guide Was invaluable for maps, restaurants, the sites I did not want to miss and great entertainment and stories of the surroundings. The guides are easy to use and very accurate. I won’t hesitate to take them everywhere I travel.
Google Maps is better- and free!
by travlwize@60 on 2018/12/26 20:09
This App costs $$. And once you purchase it continues to have you make more purchases! Would not recommend. Learn how to use Google Maps and you can do the same things for free! And now that I want to cancel after using it for 3 days I can not find where I can do so - not easily! When I’m home from travels I will make sure I cancel this service. My daughter used google maps along side me using this app and she was able to navigate it faster with accessing more info quicker than I could, since I was prompted to buy more. My recommendation- use & learn google maps!
Cheaper than a guided tour
by Epheumsirc on 2018/12/18 05:38
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...
Love these walks!
by foodlover3467 on 2018/12/06 16:18
The self-guided walks included in this app are absolute gems. They guide you to all the major sights in a city. There are walks for food, shopping and even nightlife venues!
Athens, Santorini and Tel Aviv
by Jersey KeithO on 2018/11/26 12:56
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.
Does not work
by Ace314159265 on 2018/11/20 12:04
Does not work on my iPhone at all
This app saved my life!
by Teepher on 2018/11/18 15:42
I found myself in Venice (one of the most confusing cities I’ve ever been to) and needed to find my way around on my own. I have no sense of direction and often get lost in my own home town. This app was so handy. I was able to customize my route and see everything on my list without getting lost in the city! I highly recommended this app!!
Rome
by Eurvilla on 2018/11/07 14:06
Dear Sir/madam, I really like your app. My wife and I go to Rome three times a year and find it helpful. I cannot believe people who write review about this app and complain about the cost. Tell me where you can purchase a city guide that is this cheap and I will buy 10. Best regards, Dan Bradford il dolce far niente Sent from my Ipad
App is a joke😠
by Adventurer @ 60 on 2018/10/20 16:38
You only get maps when you upgrade. Just pics of various things in each City and brief history without the paid upgrade. You can get the same info if you just Google the city.
Excellent App
by Montana Trecker on 2018/10/16 04:51
I have used this app in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, St. Petersburg, Spain and Morocco, and it has been a great help. Really enjoy using this app in preparing for travel.
A Waste
by Emcee258 on 2018/10/15 18:45
I bought this while traveling. I was hoping for an interactive, walking guide. Instead, it was a joke. Save your money.
Amazing app
by mrsbareford on 2018/10/03 14:11
So many tips for my upcoming trip to Australia- couldn’t be happier with this app!
Waste of money
by unknown traveller on 2018/09/30 18:29
Short weekend in PR and looking to wander around San Juan on a Historic Walk. I found the app to be clumsy, difficult to use and not very intuitive. It have me walking around in circles versus going from nearby attraction to the next nearest attraction. I watch the videos after a day of using it and I’m still confused. Save your money. All those who wander are not lost.
Worth every penny.

I just returned from a trip to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Slovenia. I need to mention I typically HATE subscription based software. Just sell me the software and move on. After using GPSmyCity I am happy to pay the $18.00 USD per year. Our first city Split Croatia had a walking tour for about $35.00 USD per person. Since GPSmyCity had a money back guarantee we thought why not try it. If we like it we will save $52.00 USD. $70.00 - $18.00, if we don’t like it we can cancel the subscription and book the $35.00 USD live tour . Plus if we like it we can still use the App for the rest of the year. The tours offered for Split where very detailed (I think there were 4 in total). The map and directions worked perfect even in small alleyways. The best part you do not need cell service (no data charges) while taking a tour. The articles for Split also gave us some insight into the city. We ended up using the App in Dubrovnik, Kotor, Mostar, Sarajevo, Ljubljana and Lake Bled. As you can see we easily paid for this app for the next 20 or so years in just one trip. Does this app replace a live person tour? No. But is it worth the $18.00 per year? Absolutely!! If you are still not sure try it, there is a money back guarantee. PS I am not talking about the free version. You need to subscribe to the full version and they will not charge you for a few days to allow you to try out the app. If you do not like it you can cancel and never get charged. Enjoy.
Upgrade, Upgrade!
by jamisy2 on 2018/08/30 19:34
Bought on the quick while in Central Europe. Paid the $12.99 and still don’t get City walks until $18.99. Keeps prompting to upgrade. Wasted enough; no thank you.
Heads up
by jewels444 on 2018/08/25 13:51
There really isn’t anything functional in this “free” app until you pay more after downloading.
Excellent app!
by Paul Roberts on 2018/08/16 10:57
Great app. I use it on all my trips. Love the fact that I don’t use data when finding my way around. My must have app when traveling. Thanks team! Paul
Great app... but!
by Majac3356 on 2018/08/11 14:39
I have the Charleston app (and several others) and use it quite often when we visit Charleston several times/year. So I was really excited about this app, but! There is an ongoing $12.99/year subscription fee and the first city I clicked on said it was a basic map and for an extra fee I could get a more detailed map?! Are you kidding me? I’m buying a map for the opportunity to then buy the real map?! The individual maps are purchased for $4.99, so unless you visit more than three cities/year it makes more sense to buy the individual maps which I love.
Have used App for 3 years
by Montana Ann on 2018/08/07 19:52
My husband and I have become independent travelers after many years of group tours. We have used GPS my City app in many major cities throughout Europe and have had great success. I pay the additional fee so that I can use my phone’s gps without having to eat up my data plan. Data is expensive so find this a reasonable alternative. We are enjoying our travels and find help with technology wherever we can. GPSmyCity is a little like having our our tour guide, but on our own timetable.
Useless
by Zeus28 on 2018/08/05 18:33
Useless... does not recognize or elaborate on sites( Coyoacan!!!). Deleting fast
A Genuine necessary tool
by LeftinSC on 2018/07/30 13:28
I have long relied on this app as well as other maps for getting around in foreign lands without getting lost. The most beneficial offering of this app is its suggested MUST SEE sights as well as walking routes if you need guidance. I am never on-line when moving about in a city so the GPS feature is perfect for determining where I am and ‘what the heck I’m looking at now’. I have downloaded about 8 cities and used multiple times as I tend to return to favorite places.
Total Rip-Off
by The real lizafred on 2018/07/18 10:37
They don’t tell you content is pretty much nonexistent until after going through 47 steps and you end up forced to pay the $4.99 fee for a single walk – and then, though you can then get the step-by-step directions (in a very bad interface that covers your location), the information they provide is so minimal that even a terrible guidebook would be better. They give as much information on random shops as they do on points of interest.
GPSmycity app fabulous!
by cpincp on 2018/07/17 14:32
I purchased a one year subscription to this app before going on a cruise in the Baltic. It was perfect for walking around the 4 cities where I tried it. I could download a huge selection of walks in (ex) Stockholm, and I didn’t need to buy cell service or WiFi to walk around and see a variety of different things. There is an enormous amount of information available on a very long list of cities. I found this to be a great way to get around new cities and well worth the subscription fee, especially when compared to daily cell/WiFi or cruise excursions costs.
SF Walking Tour TOTAL RIP-OFF DO NOT BUY
by FL Fred on 2018/07/14 13:42
Worthless app. Apple should remove this!
Not Free
by Gofer04 on 2018/07/08 14:36
Deleted this app within a few days. Tried to use it to set up a walking tour but all it wanted was money. Maps.me is a much better app. Maps.me doesn’t have walking tours but it works off-line without having to use data.
Useless
by Hiller Mike on 2018/07/02 11:47
This app seemed perfect. $4.99 for a handful of wi-fi/data-free guided tours of many cities (we tried it out in Bruges, Belgium). The tours are enticingly, smartly themed - architecture, cultural, museums, etc. But one I paid my $4.99 I found that the Architectural tour was thin at best and it was missing major sites. What it had most of were “Places of Interest” that are just run of the mill tourist trap bars, shops and restaurants. Walking the city blind was more rewarding than blindly trusting this app.
Total waste
by AJS1903 on 2018/06/21 07:18
Downloaded this App for walking tours in Berlin, and stupidly upgraded. The “tours” offer no information whatsoever, and just consist of a bunch of random photos that look like they were taken by some dude on his summer break. Don’t be a sucker like me.
Great App for Travelers
by SJayinCT on 2018/06/06 15:30
This is a great app for travelers. It provides real-time maps which use satellite rather than Wi-Fi. In addition to city maps which highlight many tourist attractions, the app provides city walks with detailed descriptions of the sites you will encounter. As such it is also useful tool for planning a trip. The small cost to obtain the upgrade version is well worth the price.
Excellent - can’t get lost.
by Ric53122 on 2018/06/04 15:36
I have now used GPSmyCity for several locations. Two different devices. I love the walking tours and the audio. Even the light location downloads are helpful. Spend a little and it gets better. I don’t mind spending a little to support the effort it takes to create these tours and facts. Thanks for making my vacation stops more enjoyable.
What is needed in our current times!
by Ghiddgv on 2018/06/01 09:42
I am really enjoying this map app, especially because unlike GoogleMaps, it doesn’t track my online data involuntarily! ♥️♥️♥️ It’s so worth the money! I also just LOVE the fact that it has many blogger stories and guides about the places I visit. This part is unique and very helpful in giving me an overall understanding of the new destinations. I always try to find local bloggers anyway, and with this map I can do that and save them faster. Looking forward to my next trip to use this app. I have had this app for a long time now and they always add new features. I love it! For those who likes to travel, this is the map for you! 👌
Very disappointed
by cixoxoxoxi on 2018/05/28 17:54
Signed up for the $4.99 upgrade for Victoria BC for a trip the next day and got nothing but the icon on my phone! I could read the articles....but I could do that on the GPSmyCity icon. Still had a good time in Victoria but used google maps and just wandered.
Not convenient to use and overcharged prices
by Hannonnn on 2018/05/26 21:06
Not convenient to use and overcharged prices
Tokyo map in Chinese only
by 808apple on 2018/04/30 08:28
The Tokyo tour write up (Free version) is in English, but when using maps, descriptions are in Chinese. My $4.99 loss for only speaking English & the site not explaining this prior (which I think is shady).
Reader friendly, no free lunch
by DanaosX on 2018/02/05 16:40
The reviews that want freebies or protection from politically incorrect conventional traveller interests, like women shopping, I’ll say nothing more about. Some eyes like more distraction and cognitive leading, I guess. I don’t. I rapidly reset to flat sat hybrid format on a gps if I can, e.g. And gimme Jack Webb informative, please. If you can’t navigate, don’t go in. So my positive response mirrors the review by the gentleman who visited Prague with his wife—insert Denver, San Diego, for me. You can do it all on you own with apps like this.
Don’t do it
by Ryan&Rhonda on 2018/01/26 02:58
I wish I had read the reviews before downloading this app. What a disappointment. Total bait and switch. Grrrr
This app is absolute rubbish
by disgruntled druid on 2018/01/18 13:14
When I downloaded this free app I expected to find fun informative waking maps around great cities. What I found was an unusable app that only listed points of interest in the city it would only provide a map and my GPS location after paying 5 more dollars. The map also has no option to follow the orientation of you while walking (it is always North oriented). And forget about stopping to take a picture because closing this app and using another will require the mycities app to load up from the beginning requiring you to relocate the map you were using. If I had the abilities of a warlock I would wish 100 curses upon this app.
No longer load map
by vicky.luu on 2017/12/28 03:12
It no longer loads map. Please debug asap
Maps useful, commentary not
by Dr Sphene on 2017/12/26 17:25
The maps helped us walk from interesting place to interesting place but the commentary is in some cases useless or a bit offensive. Example: “Via Etnea is a paradise for women as it is the main shopping street in Catania”.
The Travel App!
by Gasman87 on 2017/09/13 14:54
Very informative and easy to use. Clearly there is some subjectivity and one must allow for this. Overall I enjoy it!
Unusable map unless you pay
by Pbvelomagic on 2017/08/07 10:20
The map in the app is unusable unless you pay extra. Its at such a low resolution you can not use it to do a walk which defeats the purpose of this app.
Only partially downloads
by Ajamesdaddy on 2017/07/14 18:46
Only a part of the advertised tours download. I tried to download the walking tours for charlotte and it said that there were 9. Only 4 downloaded. Of course none of the ones that I was interested in. Thankfully, Deleted the app before I purchased the full version.
Crappy app
by freshpop on 2017/06/26 17:06
I downloaded some cities and then deleted the app. Planning to go overseas and all my downloaded cities are gone and the format has changed.don't waste your money.
App closes unexpectedly
by Nakag3 on 2017/05/30 18:31
App turns off while using London city walk maps, very frustrating. Francis N.
Disappointed
by Onthehook17 on 2017/05/20 21:39
We wanted a walking tour of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo, DR. Downloaded the app, without the $4.99 upgrade the information was not useable, and then the walking tour info was just a copy and paste from Wikipedia. Don't waste your time or steps.
Excellent!
by Iron John Bonney on 2017/05/05 01:58
Great idea first of all. Super useful for the traveler who likes to walk everywhere! Awesome!
Plan to buy upgrade
by dcr17 on 2017/04/28 07:15
The free version of this map is virtually useless. Can't blame them for that, but keep it in mind before you spend the time downloading it
Good
by Lingonberrydev on 2017/04/18 19:33
Good travel app. A lot of content is available for big cities. Sometimes takes a lot of time to load content from new location. Otherwise very good
Does not work offline
by Droliv on 2017/04/05 19:48
Had trouble getting it to work offline. It eventually worked. App support was responsive and helpful. Be sure to test it if you are going to use it offline.
Best Travel App
by Kterrytravels on 2017/03/29 17:04
This is the best Travel App ever. I use it for the maps, walking tour guides, places to eat and even for articles like suggestions of what souvenirs to buy. Best of all you can download the info into pdfs so no need to use your data plan, particularly in another country. The gps function for the maps even works without having to use your data plan. I have even used this locally and have found out about places and things I did not know about where I live. I say don't leave home without it.
Great functional and helpful app
by bvviews on 2019/07/12 08:09
Very useful app that always worked! Downloaded and discarded several others for lack of functionality—-not this one. Used it as a starting point for seeing sights, and also just as information to look up something we stumbled across. Yes, all of this you can do with Google, but for basic sightseeing of all the most important sites, this app can’t be beat for convenience, accuracy and quick access to info. Plus you can’t always access WiF, this you already have. Especially great if you end up somewhere with a bit of time, want to use it to see something, but don’t want to waste a lot of time to have to plan a route. Perfect for business travel in that sense, or long layovers. We found info about tickets and etc to be correct, too. Added bonus!
Cheaper than a guided tour
by Epheumsirc on 2018/12/18 05:38
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
by Hannah1133 on 2019/04/01 13:58
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!
by TSD04 on 2019/01/10 10:11
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.
Issue Resolved, Used in Carcassonne
by John3998YF on 2019/06/26 20:58
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
by Jersey KeithO on 2018/11/26 12:56
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!
by SparkyDog2004 on 2019/03/05 23:30
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
by U.S. Consumer on 2019/05/23 08:50
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
by NLVW on 2019/04/23 15:34
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!
by CK Austin on 2019/08/13 07:31
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!!
GPSed my cities!
by BearlyChatty on 2019/08/08 14:59
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 $$$ fees. The apps are now awesome! Full versions definitely rock! Way to go!!
Hardly works at all
by LynetteEve on 2019/08/15 13:09
The navigation turns on and off randomly. Some of the information is outdated. The phone keeps turning off while using the app and needs to be turned on again, causing me to lose my place on the tour. Some of the tours just show you some pictures and don’t tell you anything about the site. Sometimes the dot and fan that indicate where I am starts spinning around. The fan is too sensitive to body movement while walking and causes the navigation to change instructions over and over again. I wasted a morning of my vacation getting frustrated and not learning much. Also wasted my money on the app. The app is a great idea. It just doesn’t work very well.
Indispensable!
by Kwirky 100 on 2019/07/13 13:40
During my trip to Copenhagen, I used the paid version of GPS my city for getting around. It was easy to find attractions and to also save other places I wanted to visit. Probably the best feature, since it was made mainly for walking, is that there is a cone showing what direction you’re going. That way it was easy to tell if I started out the right way. The suggested walking tours were OK. Overall, it made my life easier and my trip pleasant!
Google Maps is better- and free!
by travlwize@60 on 2018/12/26 20:09
This App costs $$. And once you purchase it continues to have you make more purchases! Would not recommend. Learn how to use Google Maps and you can do the same things for free! And now that I want to cancel after using it for 3 days I can not find where I can do so - not easily! When I’m home from travels I will make sure I cancel this service. My daughter used google maps along side me using this app and she was able to navigate it faster with accessing more info quicker than I could, since I was prompted to buy more. My recommendation- use & learn google maps!
Absolute rubbish app
by shashipr on 2019/08/15 12:49
I had high hopes for this app, but it completely disappointed me. I bought the subscription hoping to use it in London, Scotland and Ireland as it appeared to have a lot “content” for those cities. As I got this just before I left, I didn’t get a chance to fully review it. As I started using the app, it became obvious that the content was mostly for Wikipedia, announced by a robot voice! The gps navigation is a joke also. I was expecting something along the line of gypsy guides that let you walk around and talk when you reach a location. There is nothing more to gain by subscribing. Just use some of the other apps or Wikipedia. What a sham!
Must have travel app
by World Traveler from LA on 2019/06/13 21:10
I’ll never travel without this app again! It lets me take city walking tours to the places I choose on MY schedule and at MY pace. Cost is far less than the tours I used to take whenever I traveled. Also guides me to restaurants, shopping, etc effortlessly. And when I had a question, the customer service was helpful and far faster than any I’ve ever experienced. I Love This app
This app saved my life!
by Teepher on 2018/11/18 15:42
I found myself in Venice (one of the most confusing cities I’ve ever been to) and needed to find my way around on my own. I have no sense of direction and often get lost in my own home town. This app was so handy. I was able to customize my route and see everything on my list without getting lost in the city! I highly recommended this app!!
Amazing
by Omair-1975 on 2019/07/11 10:48
Don’t look at the negative reviews . This is hands down the best city exploration app on the market . It is good for a single day stay in a city and for those who want to second a few days . You can read about places , get address information , make your own walks . It makes walking tours extremely efficient . Try it and you won’t regret it .
Very helpful when traveling
by gary travels on 2019/03/05 14:12
I have used this app many times when traveling to different countries. I generally review and download the articles in advance of the trip. Then.....when in the travel location I can click a "go there" link in the article and the GPS kicks in telling me how to get to a particular point of interest.
GPSmyCity
by yoç on 2018/12/30 07:47
These are some of the all-time best guides to navigating cities I’ve ever used. The last city I visited (1 month) was Istanbul, not a particularly easy city. GPSmyCity guide Was invaluable for maps, restaurants, the sites I did not want to miss and great entertainment and stories of the surroundings. The guides are easy to use and very accurate. I won’t hesitate to take them everywhere I travel.
Sounds great but a big letdown.
by Mikeatcut on 2019/06/18 14:40
I subscribed to this as I am traveling to Japan shortly and wanted to plan some city walks. The app is extremely difficult to use. There is no continuity in the points on the various walks and all of the maps are in Japanese. Whilst I would love to learn the language it doesn’t help me in this instance. I also tried the customized walks feature but the search facility could not find even the most popular tourist attractions. Thankfully the easiest thing about this app is cancelling the subscription! Forget this app, do a little research, and plan your own walks.
Very useful with responsive customer service
by singnt on 2019/03/19 22:41
I have lifetime access and have found this app to be very useful. Travel articles are a great read. Downloading of maps and city walks is straightforward. I have had to get customer service help and I have found them to be responsive and timely.
Not worth the money
by GiuseppetheRater on 2019/07/16 23:53
Voice directions are not accurate, and the voice is so low it’s hard to hear as you walk around. Text descriptions are not accurate. The text said that the 40 story Albany state administration building was the tallest building in the state. Tell New York City that! It uses up your battery fast! It used up my battery on my new iPhone 10 fast. You are better off using Google Maps or a number of free apps instead of wasting $4.99 on this. If I could get a refund, I’d ask for it.
I never buy apps
by Cutter112 on 2019/04/06 15:50
In my life I have now purchased Two apps. AnyList and GPS My city. GPS my city is amazing. It’s locating or tracking feature is better than google maps. We used it for the first time in Strasbourg and it was perfect. Can’t wait to use it in Heidelberg tomorrow. All travelers need this app.
Best walking maps
by George Feb on 2019/02/18 17:49
I have used this app to plan my visits to a new city and to map out a walk around the town. You can download the cities you will visit so you do not need wifi connection. After your trip you can release them from memory and load your next set. My favorite feature is the custom walks. Here you can setup what you want to see in the order you want to see it. I have used it in Spain for Madrid, Seville snd Barcelona. I have also used it in Italy for Venice and Rome. Our next trip will be a month seeing Frankfurt, Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Happy travels..
Disorganized, lacking menus, Scotsman narration?
by Bytemetoo on 2019/07/09 11:23
I don’t know where to begin—literally. There is a customary and expected START button for map apps. Not here. Seems silly to make it so difficult to find the upgrade menu so that you have gps functions. All I can tell you is it is not where the diminutive help page tells you. The English video guide is presented in a difficult to understand accent—Scottish, maybe? Nice concept, badly in need of professional UI designer.
Best application

This app suits anyone who likes traveling. The app guides travelers through city sightseeings and at the same time gives an autonomy to choose or change the routes. I used this app during my travel in Belgrade, Rome, Florence, Stockholm and absolutely satisfied with the product.
Great for the road less traveled
by PalmTreeMusings on 2019/04/19 11:06
I travel to some pretty out-of-the-way places, and I’ve found GPSMyCity to be a great substitute for carrying around guidebooks or having to bookmarks lots of travel blogs. I’ve used pre-set routes and Ive created my own. I’d recommend this app for any frequent traveler.
Fun way to tour
by DorothyLouise on 2019/03/26 13:09
This app is a great way to see a new city or explore one you think you know well. I’ve learned so much! And, you can download the map so you’re not using data as you walk. I especially like the “must see” suggestions!
Superbly Useful
by johnnyrator on 2019/02/25 22:22
We used this app extensively during a recent trip to Southern Italy. Getting around unfamiliar territory was a breeze with GPSmyCity. Even better was the ability to set locations. This allowed us to pre-plan a lot of routes and saved enormous amounts of time and trouble.
Tour Guide in Your Pocket
by kayaker59 on 2019/03/01 15:30
This app is great if you are traveling to cities you are unfamiliar with and want to see the sights. The app will create a walking map that will take you to the sights you want to see. Really fantastic!!!
High hopes but no gps
by Vvyivtyivtyuftyu on 2019/07/13 21:18
I loved that I could customize my walking tours but there are locations on the app that are out of business. It also did not have a gps locator do I needed to toggle between this app and a map app. Also the routes do not bring you back to your original location. Great concept but needs more work.
Worked well on first use
by BrianW2012 on 2019/04/20 19:15
Recently used for first trip to Charleston, SC. Used Custom feature to prepare walking tour - worked as designed. Site articles provide insights to addition tour sites. I plan to use app on upcoming trip to Portugal and Spain.
App was of no value
by RfR71 on 2019/06/25 15:42
I download the app, paid for a subscription to the city of Assisi, Italy map. Once we arrived and tried to navigate to a plaza by the app it was worthless. It was confusing, slow, and not helpful in identifying the direction we were moving. We resorted to asking directions for a local resident to the tourist store where we obtained a paper map. Never went back to the app again.

Really like this app. Have used during two 6 week cruises to Mediterranean/Aegean seas countries and to SE Asia/Japan, Korea, and China. I leave my phone in airplane mode to not have data charges. I can find my way around with this app.
Great travel tool
by Culsuup on 2019/03/17 01:36
I love this app, especially the create your own walks. It allows me to tailor a walk to our likes, plus it allows me to see the street by street directsions.
Great App

Great for travelers. A couple of suggestions: 1. Ability to combine maps 2. Ability to search for other points in city

The App is easy to use. It provides an extensive list of sites and allows creation of self designed routes.

Don't work
by ghgthgtdhk on 2019/06/13 05:08
Tried using it around my city, kept saying I'm not in the area. Been trying to find upgrade button nowhere to be found. Won't let me use the GPS when I click on it. It's basically just an app that you look at. Hopefully developer can help before I leave for my trip.
Very Helpful!
by RFPD64 on 2019/02/06 19:12
I’m not a tour kind of person, so this is great for me. Four cities under my belt, many more to come!
Love these walks!
by foodlover3467 on 2018/12/06 16:18
The self-guided walks included in this app are absolute gems. They guide you to all the major sights in a city. There are walks for food, shopping and even nightlife venues!
So Helpful
by Headofsprees US on 2019/03/07 17:22
This app is one of many tools I use for travel planning and while on trips. I travel extensively and love GPSMyCity.
Way underwhelming
by Nick1aaa on 2019/08/17 18:18
So many things that could be better with this app. For example why not spend the time to research each place rather than give a truncated version of Wikipedia entry. Also the map feature does not work properly. I really hate it. Not worth it
Rome
by Eurvilla on 2018/11/07 14:06
Dear Sir/madam, I really like your app. My wife and I go to Rome three times a year and find it helpful. I cannot believe people who write review about this app and complain about the cost. Tell me where you can purchase a city guide that is this cheap and I will buy 10. Best regards, Dan Bradford il dolce far niente Sent from my Ipad
Required updates
by TD127345 on 2019/03/11 00:30
Every time I opened the app, even after I upgraded to the paid version, I was notified that the app was out of date and required a 16 Mg update. That’s bad enough on wi-fi but an app killer when you are on the street and on cellular data. I am uninstalling this immediately.
Simply Doesn’t Work
by donco6 on 2019/05/06 03:38
Bought this for a visit to AMS. I’m here now and it is utterly useless. No mapping feature at all. Just shows a blank screen when you tap an attraction. And, yes, I downloaded the upgrade and the “offline” maps. Don’t waste your money.
Excellent App
by Montana Trecker on 2018/10/16 04:51
I have used this app in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, St. Petersburg, Spain and Morocco, and it has been a great help. Really enjoy using this app in preparing for travel.

It is not recommended to use the app on iPad wifi-only models due to lack of built-in GPS support in these models. Visit our website at www.GPSmyCity.com for more information.
Good except fo a major bug
by blanger on 2019/08/18 14:02
If your device has internet access, the app will attempt to access its server when it launches. This is ok, except for when the server is down. In that case the app is frozen, trying to reach the server. This is bad for an app that is supposed to run WiFi independent. A workaround is to put your device in airplane mode before launching the app, that will get you access to your stored city maps.

Hardly works at all
by LynetteEve on 2019/08/15 13:09
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.
Absolute rubbish app
by shashipr on 2019/08/15 12:49
I had high hopes for this app, but it completely disappointed me. I bought the subscription hoping to use it in London, Scotland and Ireland as it appeared to have a lot “content” for those cities. As I got this just before I left, I didn’t get a chance to fully review it. As I started using the app, it became obvious that the content was mostly for Wikipedia, announced by a robot voice! The gps navigation is a joke also. I was expecting something along the line of gypsy guides that let you walk around and talk when you reach a location. There is nothing more to gain by subscribing. Just use some of the other apps or Wikipedia. What a sham!
Ideal for independent travelers!
by CK Austin on 2019/08/13 07:31
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!!
GPSed my cities!
by BearlyChatty on 2019/08/08 14:59
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!!

Horrible
by memell94 on 2019/07/17 05:15
This app is the worst I’ve used in a long time. Doesn’t really help exploring the city, you have to do all the reading yourself.
Not worth the money
by GiuseppetheRater on 2019/07/16 23:53
Voice directions are not accurate, and the voice is so low it’s hard to hear as you walk around. Text descriptions are not accurate. The text said that the 40 story Albany state administration building was the tallest building in the state. Tell New York City that! It uses up your battery fast! It used up my battery on my new iPhone 10 fast. You are better off using Google Maps or a number of free apps instead of wasting $4.99 on this. If I could get a refund, I’d ask for it.

Could have been so much more
by tkiyak on 2019/07/13 16:09
I had great hopes for this app, and would not have minded paying for the annual subscription upgrade as I travel frequently. Unfortunately my test run in Bern was quite disappointing. First, if you switch to another app, the app resets. So switch to camera to take a picture and you have to start all over again. First you load the app again, then the city package, then load the tour all over again, and guess what? It did not track where you are in the tour so you have to figure out where you left last. Second, several of the points of interest were mismarked, some of them were a block or more away from where the map pointed to. Third, in between the points of interest, the maps seem to take you through the shortest route, but not necessarily the most interesting or picturesque street. Several times, I found myself in back alleys or empty streets that nobody else seemed to be on, even when the next street parallel was extremely crowded and much more pretty. As a result I ended up giving up. While second and third reasons are minor annoyances that you can work around, the first reason (the fact that the app completely restarts every time you switch to take a picture) is unforgivable. UPDATE: I appreciate that the developer took time to respond. Hopefully that's a sign that some of the problems mentioned in my review can be resolved. On the issue of background apps: at the the, I was running only three apps, Google Maps (because of my frustrations with GPSmyCity), GPSmyCity, and ProCamera. There were no other background apps running, as I regularly close all background apps (despite Apple's recommendation to not do that for performance reasons). So I don't think that was the reason.
Indispensable!
by Kwirky 100 on 2019/07/13 13:40
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!
Great functional and helpful app
by bvviews on 2019/07/12 08:09
Very useful app that always worked! Downloaded and discarded several others for lack of functionality—-not this one. Used it as a starting point for seeing sights, and also just as information to look up something we stumbled across. Yes, all of this you can do with Google, but for basic sightseeing of all the most important sites, this app can’t be beat for convenience, accuracy and quick access to info. Plus you can’t always access WiF, this you already have. Especially great if you end up somewhere with a bit of time, want to use it to see something, but don’t want to waste a lot of time to have to plan a route. Perfect for business travel in that sense, or long layovers. We found info about tickets and etc to be correct, too. Added bonus!
Amazing
by Omair-1975 on 2019/07/11 10:48
Don’t look at the negative reviews . This is hands down the best city exploration app on the market . It is good for a single day stay in a city and for those who want to second a few days . You can read about places , get address information , make your own walks . It makes walking tours extremely efficient . Try it and you won’t regret it .

Issue Resolved, Used in Carcassonne
by John3998YF on 2019/06/26 20:58
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.

Not good
Sounds great but a big letdown.
by Mikeatcut on 2019/06/18 14:40
I subscribed to this as I am traveling to Japan shortly and wanted to plan some city walks. The app is extremely difficult to use. There is no continuity in the points on the various walks and all of the maps are in Japanese. Whilst I would love to learn the language it doesn’t help me in this instance. I also tried the customized walks feature but the search facility could not find even the most popular tourist attractions. Thankfully the easiest thing about this app is cancelling the subscription! Forget this app, do a little research, and plan your own walks.
Must have travel app
by World Traveler from LA on 2019/06/13 21:10
I’ll never travel without this app again! It lets me take city walking tours to the places I choose on MY schedule and at MY pace. Cost is far less than the tours I used to take whenever I traveled. Also guides me to restaurants, shopping, etc effortlessly. And when I had a question, the customer service was helpful and far faster than any I’ve ever experienced. I Love This app

Endless cycle of frustration
by U.S. Consumer on 2019/05/23 08:50
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.

Doesn’t take or locate anything not on a tour. Spent 20 minutes trying to get it to take my hotel onto the map as a saved point. Forget about it.
Excellent App
by Dan___L on 2019/04/24 04:27
It’s easy to use and has the offline GPS feature. It’s definitely worth the money as I paid about $12.95 to use the app to use in Milan, Vienna, Budapest, and Amsterdam for my 12-day trip to Europe. I used the app to pre-plan my trip and used it when I was on location by following the location I marked previously. Advice: Book your hotel AFTER you have marked the places you want to visit with this app so you can book a hotel close to where you will visit. I used the app together with Google Map which tells me what transportations I can take between locations, including walking, taxi or public transportations.
Really Wonderful App
by NLVW on 2019/04/23 15:34
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.

I travel to some pretty out-of-the-way places, and I’ve found GPSMyCity to be a great substitute for carrying around guidebooks or having to bookmarks lots of travel blogs. I’ve used pre-set routes and Ive created my own. I’d recommend this app for any frequent traveler.
I never buy apps
by Cutter112 on 2019/04/06 15:50
In my life I have now purchased Two apps. AnyList and GPS My city. GPS my city is amazing. It’s locating or tracking feature is better than google maps. We used it for the first time in Strasbourg and it was perfect. Can’t wait to use it in Heidelberg tomorrow. All travelers need this app.
Superb travel guide
by Hannah1133 on 2019/04/01 13:58
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.
Fun way to tour
by DorothyLouise on 2019/03/26 13:09
This app is a great way to see a new city or explore one you think you know well. I’ve learned so much! And, you can download the map so you’re not using data as you walk. I especially like the “must see” suggestions!
Very useful with responsive customer service
by singnt on 2019/03/19 22:41

Best Travel App Available!
by SparkyDog2004 on 2019/03/05 23:30
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.
App is worth what you pay for it
by Soodi23 on 2019/03/05 19:05
Want to read badly-written travel articles? This is your app! Want actual maps? Sorry, that costs extra.
Very helpful when traveling
by gary travels on 2019/03/05 14:12
I have used this app many times when traveling to different countries. I generally review and download the articles in advance of the trip. Then.....when in the travel location I can click a "go there" link in the article and the GPS kicks in telling me how to get to a particular point of interest.
Great App
by stlokcphx on 2019/03/03 12:51
Great for travelers. A couple of suggestions: 1. Ability to combine maps 2. Ability to search for other points in city
Tour Guide in Your Pocket
by kayaker59 on 2019/03/01 15:30
This app is great if you are traveling to cities you are unfamiliar with and want to see the sights. The app will create a walking map that will take you to the sights you want to see. Really fantastic!!!
Superbly Useful
by johnnyrator on 2019/02/25 22:22
We used this app extensively during a recent trip to Southern Italy. Getting around unfamiliar territory was a breeze with GPSmyCity. Even better was the ability to set locations. This allowed us to pre-plan a lot of routes and saved enormous amounts of time and trouble.
Best walking maps
by George Feb on 2019/02/18 17:49
I have used this app to plan my visits to a new city and to map out a walk around the town. You can download the cities you will visit so you do not need wifi connection. After your trip you can release them from memory and load your next set. My favorite feature is the custom walks. Here you can setup what you want to see in the order you want to see it. I have used it in Spain for Madrid, Seville snd Barcelona. I have also used it in Italy for Venice and Rome. Our next trip will be a month seeing Frankfurt, Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Happy travels..
Very Helpful!
by RFPD64 on 2019/02/06 19:12
I’m not a tour kind of person, so this is great for me. Four cities under my belt, many more to come!
My absolute best sightseeing app - you owe t to yourself to give it a try!
by TSD04 on 2019/01/10 10:11
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.
Great offline sightseeing app
by NW T on 2019/01/02 11:49
Well worth the $4.99 per city for a walking guide not dependent on an internet connection. Lots of info.
GPSmyCity
by yoç on 2018/12/30 07:47
These are some of the all-time best guides to navigating cities I’ve ever used. The last city I visited (1 month) was Istanbul, not a particularly easy city. GPSmyCity guide Was invaluable for maps, restaurants, the sites I did not want to miss and great entertainment and stories of the surroundings. The guides are easy to use and very accurate. I won’t hesitate to take them everywhere I travel.
Google Maps is better- and free!
by travlwize@60 on 2018/12/26 20:09
This App costs $$. And once you purchase it continues to have you make more purchases! Would not recommend. Learn how to use Google Maps and you can do the same things for free! And now that I want to cancel after using it for 3 days I can not find where I can do so - not easily! When I’m home from travels I will make sure I cancel this service. My daughter used google maps along side me using this app and she was able to navigate it faster with accessing more info quicker than I could, since I was prompted to buy more. My recommendation- use & learn google maps!
Cheaper than a guided tour
by Epheumsirc on 2018/12/18 05:38
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...
Love these walks!
by foodlover3467 on 2018/12/06 16:18
The self-guided walks included in this app are absolute gems. They guide you to all the major sights in a city. There are walks for food, shopping and even nightlife venues!
Athens, Santorini and Tel Aviv
by Jersey KeithO on 2018/11/26 12:56
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.
Does not work
by Ace314159265 on 2018/11/20 12:04
Does not work on my iPhone at all
This app saved my life!
by Teepher on 2018/11/18 15:42
I found myself in Venice (one of the most confusing cities I’ve ever been to) and needed to find my way around on my own. I have no sense of direction and often get lost in my own home town. This app was so handy. I was able to customize my route and see everything on my list without getting lost in the city! I highly recommended this app!!
Rome
by Eurvilla on 2018/11/07 14:06
Dear Sir/madam, I really like your app. My wife and I go to Rome three times a year and find it helpful. I cannot believe people who write review about this app and complain about the cost. Tell me where you can purchase a city guide that is this cheap and I will buy 10. Best regards, Dan Bradford il dolce far niente Sent from my Ipad
App is a joke😠
by Adventurer @ 60 on 2018/10/20 16:38
You only get maps when you upgrade. Just pics of various things in each City and brief history without the paid upgrade. You can get the same info if you just Google the city.
Excellent App
by Montana Trecker on 2018/10/16 04:51
I have used this app in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, St. Petersburg, Spain and Morocco, and it has been a great help. Really enjoy using this app in preparing for travel.
A Waste
by Emcee258 on 2018/10/15 18:45
I bought this while traveling. I was hoping for an interactive, walking guide. Instead, it was a joke. Save your money.
Amazing app
by mrsbareford on 2018/10/03 14:11
So many tips for my upcoming trip to Australia- couldn’t be happier with this app!
Waste of money
by unknown traveller on 2018/09/30 18:29
Short weekend in PR and looking to wander around San Juan on a Historic Walk. I found the app to be clumsy, difficult to use and not very intuitive. It have me walking around in circles versus going from nearby attraction to the next nearest attraction. I watch the videos after a day of using it and I’m still confused. Save your money. All those who wander are not lost.
Worth every penny.
by LifeOfDug on 2018/09/29 10:12
I just returned from a trip to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Slovenia. I need to mention I typically HATE subscription based software. Just sell me the software and move on. After using GPSmyCity I am happy to pay the $18.00 USD per year. Our first city Split Croatia had a walking tour for about $35.00 USD per person. Since GPSmyCity had a money back guarantee we thought why not try it. If we like it we will save $52.00 USD. $70.00 - $18.00, if we don’t like it we can cancel the subscription and book the $35.00 USD live tour . Plus if we like it we can still use the App for the rest of the year. The tours offered for Split where very detailed (I think there were 4 in total). The map and directions worked perfect even in small alleyways. The best part you do not need cell service (no data charges) while taking a tour. The articles for Split also gave us some insight into the city. We ended up using the App in Dubrovnik, Kotor, Mostar, Sarajevo, Ljubljana and Lake Bled. As you can see we easily paid for this app for the next 20 or so years in just one trip. Does this app replace a live person tour? No. But is it worth the $18.00 per year? Absolutely!! If you are still not sure try it, there is a money back guarantee. PS I am not talking about the free version. You need to subscribe to the full version and they will not charge you for a few days to allow you to try out the app. If you do not like it you can cancel and never get charged. Enjoy.
Upgrade, Upgrade!
by jamisy2 on 2018/08/30 19:34
Bought on the quick while in Central Europe. Paid the $12.99 and still don’t get City walks until $18.99. Keeps prompting to upgrade. Wasted enough; no thank you.
Heads up
by jewels444 on 2018/08/25 13:51
There really isn’t anything functional in this “free” app until you pay more after downloading.
Excellent app!
by Paul Roberts on 2018/08/16 10:57
Great app. I use it on all my trips. Love the fact that I don’t use data when finding my way around. My must have app when traveling. Thanks team! Paul
Great app... but!
by Majac3356 on 2018/08/11 14:39
I have the Charleston app (and several others) and use it quite often when we visit Charleston several times/year. So I was really excited about this app, but! There is an ongoing $12.99/year subscription fee and the first city I clicked on said it was a basic map and for an extra fee I could get a more detailed map?! Are you kidding me? I’m buying a map for the opportunity to then buy the real map?! The individual maps are purchased for $4.99, so unless you visit more than three cities/year it makes more sense to buy the individual maps which I love.
Have used App for 3 years
by Montana Ann on 2018/08/07 19:52
My husband and I have become independent travelers after many years of group tours. We have used GPS my City app in many major cities throughout Europe and have had great success. I pay the additional fee so that I can use my phone’s gps without having to eat up my data plan. Data is expensive so find this a reasonable alternative. We are enjoying our travels and find help with technology wherever we can. GPSmyCity is a little like having our our tour guide, but on our own timetable.
Useless
by Zeus28 on 2018/08/05 18:33
Useless... does not recognize or elaborate on sites( Coyoacan!!!). Deleting fast
A Genuine necessary tool
by LeftinSC on 2018/07/30 13:28
I have long relied on this app as well as other maps for getting around in foreign lands without getting lost. The most beneficial offering of this app is its suggested MUST SEE sights as well as walking routes if you need guidance. I am never on-line when moving about in a city so the GPS feature is perfect for determining where I am and ‘what the heck I’m looking at now’. I have downloaded about 8 cities and used multiple times as I tend to return to favorite places.
Total Rip-Off
by The real lizafred on 2018/07/18 10:37
They don’t tell you content is pretty much nonexistent until after going through 47 steps and you end up forced to pay the $4.99 fee for a single walk – and then, though you can then get the step-by-step directions (in a very bad interface that covers your location), the information they provide is so minimal that even a terrible guidebook would be better. They give as much information on random shops as they do on points of interest.
GPSmycity app fabulous!
by cpincp on 2018/07/17 14:32
I purchased a one year subscription to this app before going on a cruise in the Baltic. It was perfect for walking around the 4 cities where I tried it. I could download a huge selection of walks in (ex) Stockholm, and I didn’t need to buy cell service or WiFi to walk around and see a variety of different things. There is an enormous amount of information available on a very long list of cities. I found this to be a great way to get around new cities and well worth the subscription fee, especially when compared to daily cell/WiFi or cruise excursions costs.
SF Walking Tour TOTAL RIP-OFF DO NOT BUY
by FL Fred on 2018/07/14 13:42
Worthless app. Apple should remove this!
Not Free
by Gofer04 on 2018/07/08 14:36
Deleted this app within a few days. Tried to use it to set up a walking tour but all it wanted was money. Maps.me is a much better app. Maps.me doesn’t have walking tours but it works off-line without having to use data.
Useless
by Hiller Mike on 2018/07/02 11:47
This app seemed perfect. $4.99 for a handful of wi-fi/data-free guided tours of many cities (we tried it out in Bruges, Belgium). The tours are enticingly, smartly themed - architecture, cultural, museums, etc. But one I paid my $4.99 I found that the Architectural tour was thin at best and it was missing major sites. What it had most of were “Places of Interest” that are just run of the mill tourist trap bars, shops and restaurants. Walking the city blind was more rewarding than blindly trusting this app.
Total waste
by AJS1903 on 2018/06/21 07:18
Downloaded this App for walking tours in Berlin, and stupidly upgraded. The “tours” offer no information whatsoever, and just consist of a bunch of random photos that look like they were taken by some dude on his summer break. Don’t be a sucker like me.
Great App for Travelers
by SJayinCT on 2018/06/06 15:30
This is a great app for travelers. It provides real-time maps which use satellite rather than Wi-Fi. In addition to city maps which highlight many tourist attractions, the app provides city walks with detailed descriptions of the sites you will encounter. As such it is also useful tool for planning a trip. The small cost to obtain the upgrade version is well worth the price.
Excellent - can’t get lost.
by Ric53122 on 2018/06/04 15:36
I have now used GPSmyCity for several locations. Two different devices. I love the walking tours and the audio. Even the light location downloads are helpful. Spend a little and it gets better. I don’t mind spending a little to support the effort it takes to create these tours and facts. Thanks for making my vacation stops more enjoyable.
What is needed in our current times!
by Ghiddgv on 2018/06/01 09:42
I am really enjoying this map app, especially because unlike GoogleMaps, it doesn’t track my online data involuntarily! ♥️♥️♥️ It’s so worth the money! I also just LOVE the fact that it has many blogger stories and guides about the places I visit. This part is unique and very helpful in giving me an overall understanding of the new destinations. I always try to find local bloggers anyway, and with this map I can do that and save them faster. Looking forward to my next trip to use this app. I have had this app for a long time now and they always add new features. I love it! For those who likes to travel, this is the map for you! 👌
Very disappointed
by cixoxoxoxi on 2018/05/28 17:54
Signed up for the $4.99 upgrade for Victoria BC for a trip the next day and got nothing but the icon on my phone! I could read the articles....but I could do that on the GPSmyCity icon. Still had a good time in Victoria but used google maps and just wandered.
Not convenient to use and overcharged prices

Not convenient to use and overcharged prices
Tokyo map in Chinese only
by 808apple on 2018/04/30 08:28
The Tokyo tour write up (Free version) is in English, but when using maps, descriptions are in Chinese. My $4.99 loss for only speaking English & the site not explaining this prior (which I think is shady).
Reader friendly, no free lunch
by DanaosX on 2018/02/05 16:40
The reviews that want freebies or protection from politically incorrect conventional traveller interests, like women shopping, I’ll say nothing more about. Some eyes like more distraction and cognitive leading, I guess. I don’t. I rapidly reset to flat sat hybrid format on a gps if I can, e.g. And gimme Jack Webb informative, please. If you can’t navigate, don’t go in. So my positive response mirrors the review by the gentleman who visited Prague with his wife—insert Denver, San Diego, for me. You can do it all on you own with apps like this.
Don’t do it
by Ryan&Rhonda on 2018/01/26 02:58
I wish I had read the reviews before downloading this app. What a disappointment. Total bait and switch. Grrrr
This app is absolute rubbish
by disgruntled druid on 2018/01/18 13:14
When I downloaded this free app I expected to find fun informative waking maps around great cities. What I found was an unusable app that only listed points of interest in the city it would only provide a map and my GPS location after paying 5 more dollars. The map also has no option to follow the orientation of you while walking (it is always North oriented). And forget about stopping to take a picture because closing this app and using another will require the mycities app to load up from the beginning requiring you to relocate the map you were using. If I had the abilities of a warlock I would wish 100 curses upon this app.
No longer load map
by vicky.luu on 2017/12/28 03:12
It no longer loads map. Please debug asap
Maps useful, commentary not
by Dr Sphene on 2017/12/26 17:25
The maps helped us walk from interesting place to interesting place but the commentary is in some cases useless or a bit offensive. Example: “Via Etnea is a paradise for women as it is the main shopping street in Catania”.
The Travel App!
by Gasman87 on 2017/09/13 14:54
Very informative and easy to use. Clearly there is some subjectivity and one must allow for this. Overall I enjoy it!
Unusable map unless you pay
by Pbvelomagic on 2017/08/07 10:20
The map in the app is unusable unless you pay extra. Its at such a low resolution you can not use it to do a walk which defeats the purpose of this app.
Only partially downloads
by Ajamesdaddy on 2017/07/14 18:46
Only a part of the advertised tours download. I tried to download the walking tours for charlotte and it said that there were 9. Only 4 downloaded. Of course none of the ones that I was interested in. Thankfully, Deleted the app before I purchased the full version.
Crappy app
by freshpop on 2017/06/26 17:06
I downloaded some cities and then deleted the app. Planning to go overseas and all my downloaded cities are gone and the format has changed.don't waste your money.
App closes unexpectedly
by Nakag3 on 2017/05/30 18:31
App turns off while using London city walk maps, very frustrating. Francis N.
Disappointed
by Onthehook17 on 2017/05/20 21:39
We wanted a walking tour of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo, DR. Downloaded the app, without the $4.99 upgrade the information was not useable, and then the walking tour info was just a copy and paste from Wikipedia. Don't waste your time or steps.
Excellent!
by Iron John Bonney on 2017/05/05 01:58
Great idea first of all. Super useful for the traveler who likes to walk everywhere! Awesome!
Plan to buy upgrade
by dcr17 on 2017/04/28 07:15
The free version of this map is virtually useless. Can't blame them for that, but keep it in mind before you spend the time downloading it
Good
by Lingonberrydev on 2017/04/18 19:33
Good travel app. A lot of content is available for big cities. Sometimes takes a lot of time to load content from new location. Otherwise very good
Does not work offline
by Droliv on 2017/04/05 19:48
Had trouble getting it to work offline. It eventually worked. App support was responsive and helpful. Be sure to test it if you are going to use it offline.
Best Travel App
by Kterrytravels on 2017/03/29 17:04
This is the best Travel App ever. I use it for the maps, walking tour guides, places to eat and even for articles like suggestions of what souvenirs to buy. Best of all you can download the info into pdfs so no need to use your data plan, particularly in another country. The gps function for the maps even works without having to use your data plan. I have even used this locally and have found out about places and things I did not know about where I live. I say don't leave home without it.
Great functional and helpful app
by bvviews on 2019/07/12 08:09
Very useful app that always worked! Downloaded and discarded several others for lack of functionality—-not this one. Used it as a starting point for seeing sights, and also just as information to look up something we stumbled across. Yes, all of this you can do with Google, but for basic sightseeing of all the most important sites, this app can’t be beat for convenience, accuracy and quick access to info. Plus you can’t always access WiF, this you already have. Especially great if you end up somewhere with a bit of time, want to use it to see something, but don’t want to waste a lot of time to have to plan a route. Perfect for business travel in that sense, or long layovers. We found info about tickets and etc to be correct, too. Added bonus!

Superb travel guide
by Hannah1133 on 2019/04/01 13:58
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.

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.
Issue Resolved, Used in Carcassonne
by John3998YF on 2019/06/26 20:58
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

Best Travel App Available!
by SparkyDog2004 on 2019/03/05 23:30
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
by U.S. Consumer on 2019/05/23 08:50
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
by NLVW on 2019/04/23 15:34
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!
by CK Austin on 2019/08/13 07:31
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!!
GPSed my cities!
by BearlyChatty on 2019/08/08 14:59
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 $$$ fees. The apps are now awesome! Full versions definitely rock! Way to go!!
Hardly works at all
by LynetteEve on 2019/08/15 13:09
The navigation turns on and off randomly. Some of the information is outdated. The phone keeps turning off while using the app and needs to be turned on again, causing me to lose my place on the tour. Some of the tours just show you some pictures and don’t tell you anything about the site. Sometimes the dot and fan that indicate where I am starts spinning around. The fan is too sensitive to body movement while walking and causes the navigation to change instructions over and over again. I wasted a morning of my vacation getting frustrated and not learning much. Also wasted my money on the app. The app is a great idea. It just doesn’t work very well.
Indispensable!
by Kwirky 100 on 2019/07/13 13:40
During my trip to Copenhagen, I used the paid version of GPS my city for getting around. It was easy to find attractions and to also save other places I wanted to visit. Probably the best feature, since it was made mainly for walking, is that there is a cone showing what direction you’re going. That way it was easy to tell if I started out the right way. The suggested walking tours were OK. Overall, it made my life easier and my trip pleasant!
Google Maps is better- and free!
by travlwize@60 on 2018/12/26 20:09
This App costs $$. And once you purchase it continues to have you make more purchases! Would not recommend. Learn how to use Google Maps and you can do the same things for free! And now that I want to cancel after using it for 3 days I can not find where I can do so - not easily! When I’m home from travels I will make sure I cancel this service. My daughter used google maps along side me using this app and she was able to navigate it faster with accessing more info quicker than I could, since I was prompted to buy more. My recommendation- use & learn google maps!
Absolute rubbish app
by shashipr on 2019/08/15 12:49
I had high hopes for this app, but it completely disappointed me. I bought the subscription hoping to use it in London, Scotland and Ireland as it appeared to have a lot “content” for those cities. As I got this just before I left, I didn’t get a chance to fully review it. As I started using the app, it became obvious that the content was mostly for Wikipedia, announced by a robot voice! The gps navigation is a joke also. I was expecting something along the line of gypsy guides that let you walk around and talk when you reach a location. There is nothing more to gain by subscribing. Just use some of the other apps or Wikipedia. What a sham!
Must have travel app
by World Traveler from LA on 2019/06/13 21:10
I’ll never travel without this app again! It lets me take city walking tours to the places I choose on MY schedule and at MY pace. Cost is far less than the tours I used to take whenever I traveled. Also guides me to restaurants, shopping, etc effortlessly. And when I had a question, the customer service was helpful and far faster than any I’ve ever experienced. I Love This app
This app saved my life!
by Teepher on 2018/11/18 15:42
I found myself in Venice (one of the most confusing cities I’ve ever been to) and needed to find my way around on my own. I have no sense of direction and often get lost in my own home town. This app was so handy. I was able to customize my route and see everything on my list without getting lost in the city! I highly recommended this app!!
Amazing
by Omair-1975 on 2019/07/11 10:48
Don’t look at the negative reviews . This is hands down the best city exploration app on the market . It is good for a single day stay in a city and for those who want to second a few days . You can read about places , get address information , make your own walks . It makes walking tours extremely efficient . Try it and you won’t regret it .
Very helpful when traveling
by gary travels on 2019/03/05 14:12
I have used this app many times when traveling to different countries. I generally review and download the articles in advance of the trip. Then.....when in the travel location I can click a "go there" link in the article and the GPS kicks in telling me how to get to a particular point of interest.
GPSmyCity
by yoç on 2018/12/30 07:47
These are some of the all-time best guides to navigating cities I’ve ever used. The last city I visited (1 month) was Istanbul, not a particularly easy city. GPSmyCity guide Was invaluable for maps, restaurants, the sites I did not want to miss and great entertainment and stories of the surroundings. The guides are easy to use and very accurate. I won’t hesitate to take them everywhere I travel.
Sounds great but a big letdown.
by Mikeatcut on 2019/06/18 14:40
I subscribed to this as I am traveling to Japan shortly and wanted to plan some city walks. The app is extremely difficult to use. There is no continuity in the points on the various walks and all of the maps are in Japanese. Whilst I would love to learn the language it doesn’t help me in this instance. I also tried the customized walks feature but the search facility could not find even the most popular tourist attractions. Thankfully the easiest thing about this app is cancelling the subscription! Forget this app, do a little research, and plan your own walks.
Very useful with responsive customer service
by singnt on 2019/03/19 22:41
I have lifetime access and have found this app to be very useful. Travel articles are a great read. Downloading of maps and city walks is straightforward. I have had to get customer service help and I have found them to be responsive and timely.
Not worth the money
by GiuseppetheRater on 2019/07/16 23:53
Voice directions are not accurate, and the voice is so low it’s hard to hear as you walk around. Text descriptions are not accurate. The text said that the 40 story Albany state administration building was the tallest building in the state. Tell New York City that! It uses up your battery fast! It used up my battery on my new iPhone 10 fast. You are better off using Google Maps or a number of free apps instead of wasting $4.99 on this. If I could get a refund, I’d ask for it.
I never buy apps
by Cutter112 on 2019/04/06 15:50
In my life I have now purchased Two apps. AnyList and GPS My city. GPS my city is amazing. It’s locating or tracking feature is better than google maps. We used it for the first time in Strasbourg and it was perfect. Can’t wait to use it in Heidelberg tomorrow. All travelers need this app.
Best walking maps
by George Feb on 2019/02/18 17:49
I have used this app to plan my visits to a new city and to map out a walk around the town. You can download the cities you will visit so you do not need wifi connection. After your trip you can release them from memory and load your next set. My favorite feature is the custom walks. Here you can setup what you want to see in the order you want to see it. I have used it in Spain for Madrid, Seville snd Barcelona. I have also used it in Italy for Venice and Rome. Our next trip will be a month seeing Frankfurt, Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Happy travels..
Disorganized, lacking menus, Scotsman narration?
by Bytemetoo on 2019/07/09 11:23
I don’t know where to begin—literally. There is a customary and expected START button for map apps. Not here. Seems silly to make it so difficult to find the upgrade menu so that you have gps functions. All I can tell you is it is not where the diminutive help page tells you. The English video guide is presented in a difficult to understand accent—Scottish, maybe? Nice concept, badly in need of professional UI designer.
Best application
by scholarNYC on 2019/05/24 19:05
This app suits anyone who likes traveling. The app guides travelers through city sightseeings and at the same time gives an autonomy to choose or change the routes. I used this app during my travel in Belgrade, Rome, Florence, Stockholm and absolutely satisfied with the product.
Great for the road less traveled
by PalmTreeMusings on 2019/04/19 11:06
I travel to some pretty out-of-the-way places, and I’ve found GPSMyCity to be a great substitute for carrying around guidebooks or having to bookmarks lots of travel blogs. I’ve used pre-set routes and Ive created my own. I’d recommend this app for any frequent traveler.
Fun way to tour
by DorothyLouise on 2019/03/26 13:09
This app is a great way to see a new city or explore one you think you know well. I’ve learned so much! And, you can download the map so you’re not using data as you walk. I especially like the “must see” suggestions!
Superbly Useful
by johnnyrator on 2019/02/25 22:22
We used this app extensively during a recent trip to Southern Italy. Getting around unfamiliar territory was a breeze with GPSmyCity. Even better was the ability to set locations. This allowed us to pre-plan a lot of routes and saved enormous amounts of time and trouble.
Tour Guide in Your Pocket
by kayaker59 on 2019/03/01 15:30
This app is great if you are traveling to cities you are unfamiliar with and want to see the sights. The app will create a walking map that will take you to the sights you want to see. Really fantastic!!!
High hopes but no gps
by Vvyivtyivtyuftyu on 2019/07/13 21:18
I loved that I could customize my walking tours but there are locations on the app that are out of business. It also did not have a gps locator do I needed to toggle between this app and a map app. Also the routes do not bring you back to your original location. Great concept but needs more work.
Worked well on first use
by BrianW2012 on 2019/04/20 19:15
Recently used for first trip to Charleston, SC. Used Custom feature to prepare walking tour - worked as designed. Site articles provide insights to addition tour sites. I plan to use app on upcoming trip to Portugal and Spain.
App was of no value
by RfR71 on 2019/06/25 15:42
I download the app, paid for a subscription to the city of Assisi, Italy map. Once we arrived and tried to navigate to a plaza by the app it was worthless. It was confusing, slow, and not helpful in identifying the direction we were moving. We resorted to asking directions for a local resident to the tourist store where we obtained a paper map. Never went back to the app again.
GPSmyCity
by GK's Honey on 2019/03/07 18:36
Really like this app. Have used during two 6 week cruises to Mediterranean/Aegean seas countries and to SE Asia/Japan, Korea, and China. I leave my phone in airplane mode to not have data charges. I can find my way around with this app.
Great travel tool
by Culsuup on 2019/03/17 01:36
I love this app, especially the create your own walks. It allows me to tailor a walk to our likes, plus it allows me to see the street by street directsions.
Great App
by stlokcphx on 2019/03/03 12:51
Great for travelers. A couple of suggestions: 1. Ability to combine maps 2. Ability to search for other points in city
Outstanding
by Owasso81 on 2019/07/17 19:33
The App is easy to use. It provides an extensive list of sites and allows creation of self designed routes.
Self walking tour
by lhhgrandma on 2019/08/01 04:08
It’s great that you can design your own walking tours on each city. Totally custom the way you want. I really like it
GPSmyCity
by life is just ducky on 2019/05/02 00:17
Found this app while visiting Savannah. Super helpful! Great app, saved us a ton of time so we were able to see more sights
Don't work
by ghgthgtdhk on 2019/06/13 05:08
Tried using it around my city, kept saying I'm not in the area. Been trying to find upgrade button nowhere to be found. Won't let me use the GPS when I click on it. It's basically just an app that you look at. Hopefully developer can help before I leave for my trip.
Very Helpful!
by RFPD64 on 2019/02/06 19:12
I’m not a tour kind of person, so this is great for me. Four cities under my belt, many more to come!
Love these walks!
by foodlover3467 on 2018/12/06 16:18
The self-guided walks included in this app are absolute gems. They guide you to all the major sights in a city. There are walks for food, shopping and even nightlife venues!
So Helpful
by Headofsprees US on 2019/03/07 17:22
This app is one of many tools I use for travel planning and while on trips. I travel extensively and love GPSMyCity.
Way underwhelming
by Nick1aaa on 2019/08/17 18:18
So many things that could be better with this app. For example why not spend the time to research each place rather than give a truncated version of Wikipedia entry. Also the map feature does not work properly. I really hate it. Not worth it
Rome
by Eurvilla on 2018/11/07 14:06
Dear Sir/madam, I really like your app. My wife and I go to Rome three times a year and find it helpful. I cannot believe people who write review about this app and complain about the cost. Tell me where you can purchase a city guide that is this cheap and I will buy 10. Best regards, Dan Bradford il dolce far niente Sent from my Ipad
Required updates
by TD127345 on 2019/03/11 00:30
Every time I opened the app, even after I upgraded to the paid version, I was notified that the app was out of date and required a 16 Mg update. That’s bad enough on wi-fi but an app killer when you are on the street and on cellular data. I am uninstalling this immediately.
Simply Doesn’t Work
by donco6 on 2019/05/06 03:38
Bought this for a visit to AMS. I’m here now and it is utterly useless. No mapping feature at all. Just shows a blank screen when you tap an attraction. And, yes, I downloaded the upgrade and the “offline” maps. Don’t waste your money.
Excellent App
by Montana Trecker on 2018/10/16 04:51
I have used this app in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, St. Petersburg, Spain and Morocco, and it has been a great help. Really enjoy using this app in preparing for travel.
