Madrid Audio Travel Guide

Would you like to explore the historic Habsburg heart of Spain’s capital and discover its literary heritage too? See where modern-day Madrid developed in a riot of architectural Modernisme and where the Arab population fought with the Christians for the right to live in the medieval city? Whether you’re looking for ancient treasures or contemporary landmarks, our tailored tours guide you through the city. Don’t worry about having to leaf through hefty guidebooks, just listen to our informed narrative.

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.

Good value Pretty good, crashed a couple of times but not enough to be a problem and kept all the current data about where we'd been. We did the tour backwards, you can track where you've been on the built in map and use it to get back on track if you've wandered off a bit. One particularly nice feature is that it automatically started the voice over when you were in the right spot using GPS so you didn't have to keep geting the phone out all the time. One thing I think would make it better is if it consolidated all the purchased tours onto the same map so you could have more freedom to easily move from one to the other without having to start/restart it.
