Couldn't get connected
Dec 2019
I was very excited to be able to go out on my own and enjoy the sites at my own pace but downloading the information took too long. The internet service at the cafe I was at was very slow and very iritating.

Hello, Alex here, the author of the tour. I'm sorry you had trouble with internet connection of the cafe you were at. The 52MB tour can be downloaded anywhere, and after being downloaded works completely offline. Could you please email support@voicemap.me so we can make sure the problem wasn't with your phone and provide you with a good experience? Thank you, -Alex

My daughter and I really enjoyed following the informative and interesting commentary around Vienna, which pointed out things we would not otherwise have seen. A good way to orientate yourself around the Innerestadt and good value for money.

Persevere and it’s worth it!

Myself and my teenager downloaded this as we had 1 day in Vienna and it seemed like a cheap and easy way to get as much out of the experience as we could without breaking the bank. Our plan was to verbally relay the information to my husband who doesn’t have a smartphone.
We started off at a canter at the Opera House But I don’t know if it was the crowds forcing us to detour, or our inexperience, but we kept getting lost and got constant reminders from the app that we weren’t where we were meant to be.
One of the areas with a description (Donner Fountain?) seems to have been demolished but that’s not the apps fault and it was kind of fun hearing what should have been there!
By the time we got to the last attraction we were excellent at finding what was being point out by Alex in our ears and it was hugely enjoyable! I do wish we had been better at the start though - and whilst we understand that not everything could be included, it could have easily been a lot longer

Hello! Alex here, the tour author. In a turn of events I would have never expected in Vienna, the Donner Fountain has in fact been removed! I am currently updating the tour accordingly. Thank you for for your feedback, and I am glad you enjoyed it!

This was our first use of audio tours, and it was easy. Great way to lose yourself in the city with an informative and interesting tour.

Entertaining self guided audio tour
Jul 2019 • Family
Four of used this tour which we enjoyed as it provided an interesting and entertaining tour around many sight in Vienna that we had not paid too much attention to in the past. The technology was fun to used but the GPS did sometimes seem to lose track of precisely where we were (perhaps because of tall buildings) and therefore we had to try to re-synchronise a few times.

Great tour
Jul 2019 • Business
Insightful tour of central Vienna. Simple process to download to the app and it intuitively follows you as you walk through the area. Allows you to take as much time as you want for photos, stop for meal, etc. Inexpensive and a great choice.

Educational and entertaining audio tour
My husband and I have actually done this audio tour twice, we liked it so much! The first time was in January 2018, the second time we were in Vienna with my mother-in-law and brother-in-law in November 2018. We felt it was good enough to do again. The tour is self paced and uses GPS to trigger the next section with detailed directions. The tour points out both famous landmarks in the city as well as smaller useful cultural items you might have missed, like the käsekrainer stand. The tour is professionally recorded with accompanying music and sound bites. It’s engaging, and we enjoyed it enough to recommend it to all our friends visiting Vienna.

Informative, amusing, easy to use.
Jun 2019 • Couples
My wife and I really enjoyed this walking tour of central Vienna. We did not want a long intensive tour in a big group so I downloaded this on the app store on our iPhones. We used our own earphones. It was perfect - just the right amount of interesting and amusing information for newcomers to the city. We were happy to walk around for an hour just listening. There were so many things we would have missed that Alex (the guide) pointed out as we were walking. The best thing was we could go at our own pace, stop and continue e.g. after a coffee stop - or even next day - and also listen to anything again if needed. The system uses the phone GPS and the guide starts talking as you arrive at each place. Occasionally the GPS 'lost' our position and we did have to fiddle with the screen menu and click some items manually. Overall we both highly recommend this Voicemap and we will be using the same app in future in other places.
