The Ultimate App for the Curious Traveller
I'm very excited to write this post today because I'm finally sharing something I've been working on for the past few weeks!
Not too long ago I was introduced to VoiceMap, an app for travellers who love to explore and share an insider's look into the city their visiting. VoiceMap hosts a collection of walking tours with audio guides that you can download onto your cellphone. The app works with your phone's GPS so that, as you walk along the tour's route, audio tracks are automatically triggered as you approach something interesting or noteworthy.
Different walking tours are available in countries all across the world and I have spent the last couple weeks writing one for Toronto! The great thing about VoiceMap is that most of their tours are written by locals in each city so you can really get an insider's experience rather than the usual touristy stuff.
My Toronto tour is called "The Best of West Queen West." Since West Queen West was named the second coolest neighbourhood in the world by Vogue Magazine, and since I blog out of Toronto, a lot of travellers have asked me to point out the highlights of that neighbourhood. The Best of West Queen West audio tour takes you on a stroll through the neighbourhood and shares all the places in the area that Torontonians go to eat, shop, and party.
