Athens Audio Travel Guide

Being continuously inhabited for at least 3,000 years, Athens busts of energy and waits to be explored. Whether you are eager to wander through the picturesque courtyards and lanes of Plaka, visit the oriental bazaars and food markets of Monastiraki, or enjoy a frappe and spoon sweet in the wonderful patisseries and kafeneia, our tailor-made tours guide you through the city.
Forget about lengthy text based content and pay attention to the site itself while listening to the narrated information.

PocketGuide, the world’s leading audio city guide application, gives you tours by voice, revealing the best stories, insider hangouts and must-see sights in close to 100 major cities and tourist destinations. The app determines your location and a recording of your personal tour guide describes where you are – you don’t need to touch your phone or read from the screen. All the tours are developed by local experts who know their cities inside-and-out. You can choose from different themed tours, or just wander around the city and let PocketGuide inform you when an interesting site is nearby. The app can also record your trip: With one click you can create an amazing 3D video of the sights you see on your travels.

You can use the GPS-activated voice tours for free as long as your phone is online, but that means you will have to pay roaming charges. If you pay to download the tours, you can use them offline, and save on the cost of roaming. We charge a small fee for downloading the offline features because we need to reimburse the tour guides and cover our development costs. Other features you can get for free include a map that works offline and free use of the 3D tour.

Not "free" After download, if you want any content, you have to pay. I searched under the FREE aps section, not paid. Uninstall.
