Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — GoTourIt announced today the launch of its iPhone application, which combines the latest in smartphone technology with an insider’s view of the country’s most visited cities, national parks, and historic sites. With over 30 tours available, visitors access the best sites to see, hear the fascinating histories and stories that define each site, connect to detailed visitor information, and visit the stops that most interest them, all at their own pace and on their own time. GoTourIt offers tours in destinations such as New York City, Washington DC, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Houston, Portland, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Yellowstone.
Tours go beyond the typical guided tour experience. Users explore on their own by following interactive GPS enabled maps that plot their location and tour stops. Audio guides provide fascinating stories about each stop that can now be controlled at the touch of a button; users have the ability to play, pause, and rewind audio and video content at their convenience. Web links within the tour provide further details about visited sites, and users can give and receive feedback to other tourists about the must-see stops along the way.
“We knew we needed to provide our users with the highest-quality tour content available, so we partnered with local travel experts throughout the country who have created professional and entertaining tours specific to their locations,” explained CEO and founder Bradley Weill. “These tours are available on the iPhone exclusively through GoTourIt.”
The GoTourIt application is available as a free download from the iTunes store. Tours can be downloaded directly into the application. While some tours are free, most tours are priced from $4.99 to $11.99, making it a budget-friendly way to explore a new destination.
