The Travel Bunny’s self-guided walking tours on GPSmyCity

The Travel Bunny’s mission has always been to help you easily plan your budget travel adventures. So far, I did my best to write detailed travelogues on the travel blog, and in-depth free travel guides. However, with the help of GPSmyCity, I’m taking things to the next level. I am transforming my blog posts and pages into self-guided walking tours.

How does GPSmyCity work?

GPSmyCity is a travel article app, turning detailed articles from travel bloggers like myself into self-guided walking tours which can easily be followed by readers like you. This gives everyone the chance to recreate the journey that inspired them to travel in the first place.

Sure, it’s also easy to just bookmark the article. However, as a frequent traveler, I’ve learned the hard way that you can’t always get what you want. And by that, I mean internet connection. Even if you have lots of mobile data available, you won’t always get a signal or proper speed. This can feel frustrating and can be time-consuming, two things you don’t really need while on vacation, do you?

That’s where offline travel apps like GPSmyCity come in handy. Not only are they available wherever and whenever you need them, but they also save your phone’s battery life for the day. You may even get to leave the power bank at home the next time you’re packing your bag!

After downloading and installing GPSmyCity, this offline travel app allows you to browse through thousands of blog articles covering destinations from all over the world. These travel articles from GPSmyCity are available for free upload, to have them handy whenever you’re stranded without internet in a new city.

What are the GPS-guided articles?

GPSmyCity doesn’t only allow you to save great travel articles about where you’re planning to go. It can also map all the places mentioned by the blogger in the article you loved or (at least) found useful to your journey. So, when you visit, you get instructions on how to get there, and also all the information the travel blogger added about that place.

While there is a small fee to upgrade (about $2/GPS-guided article or $20/annual subscription), you can choose from over 6500 self-guided walking tours every time you’re planning a trip.

Try GPSmyCity and enjoy the freedom to discover the city on your own, through a self-guided walking tour. However, with each GPS-guided article you use, you’ll feel like the travel blogger who wrote it is your own personal guide, showing you around the city.

Tl;dr? Then watch this video about GPSmyCity!

I definitely need to continue to use it and play around with its features. So for $20/annually, you can download all the articles you want?

  4. Tania Muthusamy

    Sounds like a great app. I will have to try it out.

  8. Erik the Hungry Traveller

    This is the first time ive heard of this. Ill use this on my next travel

  9. Sinjana

    This is a superb app idea. I will download it and check it out for my next foreign trip.

  10. Brett

    This is so interesting. I have never heard about this before, but now, I will have to check it out.

  11. Bianca

    This is such a handy guide. I am planning on exploring a couple of islands in Greece this summer and will be traveling from Athens for most of that. This will be very useful! Pinned as well.

  12. We do a lot of walking when we travel but we’ve never used this app- we’re going to have to try it out!!

  13. This is such a cool app. It’s like having your own personal tour guide! I do a lot of walking when I travel so this is something I’ll have to look at next time I hit the road 🙂

  14. Rhonda

    I think the GPS guided tours are great when you can’t get a live guide to fill you in on the history. There have been many times when I have been told where a spot is only to find that it is not that easy to find after all. This app should make finding the location easy.

  15. Lisa

    This sounds like a cool app! I’ve never heard of it before, but I’m intrigued to check it out. Taking a self-guided tour is always a good idea.

  16. Wow, I actually just heard about this kind of app, which I find it not just interesting, but really helpful. The GPSMyCity is something I should really check, though I’m not really into walking tours, since I often climb mountains and chase waterfalls, but this can be really a great help in the future. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  17. I love that this can all be achieved offline – just how brilliant is that! And it’s also great for places that are a bit more remote, so you never know when your connection will drop. It’s great that you have so many tours already available.

  18. We always walk the legs off ourselves when visiting a new city and do sometimes get lost or become unsure of where to go next. But this app sounds amazing! Definitely going to try it next time we’re travelling!

  19. I have never heard of this app before. So cool, because now you don’t have to find a place with a free WiFi.

  20. Interesting idea and concept. Several of the guides I glanced at seem fairly good. We use both Google Maps with our own pins (and you can use it offline by the way) and CityMaps2Go which we love (also can be used offline). Might have to give this a try.

  21. Sounds like a great app. Self guided tours are the best as it means you can pace the trip as per your wish. I will definitely check it out the next time I plan a walking tour.

  22. Renata -

    This certainly is a good way of walking a city. However, lately, I got a hang of those ‘free’ city tours. When the guide is eloquent, he or she adds so much charm and local flavor to the walk; and I can ask dumb questions 😉

  23. Wow! It is incredible to know. I didn’t even know about this earlier. There are many times we go offline while traveling and GPSmycity app would be a quite help in such situations. Is it available in India too?

  24. I had no idea at all that something like this GPSmycity app exists. It’s definitely a very helpful thing while travelling and its usability without internet access is great! Being able to create your own city walks is fun and interesting.

  25. Rahat Arora

    This is something new I found out: that we can get our own GPS-guided articles via GPSmycity. Thank you very much for providing this information!

  26. Ketki

    Wen i heard about GPSmycity, I was not sure how useful it would be. But looking at your review, i feel it is worth trying once. The best part is the usability without internet connection which is fantastic.!

  27. I love this app, it’s seriously amazing and easy to use! I’ve used it in several different cities. What an awesome giveaway, good luck to everyone 🙂

  28. Didn’t know about this app, thank you!

  29. This is such a great idea! I love walking around my time but never thought to do this. Interesting!

  30. This sounds like a very cool app, I’ll definitely need to have this next time I’m traveling!

  31. This is a really cool app! I’ve never heard of this before – I’m gonna have to get it!

  32. It looks like a very good app for me. I never tried it before. We give it a try and see. Thank you for sharing with us. Keep up the good work.

  33. Jasmine M

    This would literally save me so much time when planning for vacations! I’m always planning things to do which can be very time-consuming, but a GPS self-guided walking tour app is genius. Thank you so much for sharing!

  34. This is really interesting. I’ve never heard if GPSMyCity before, but it’s something worth checking. Thanks for sharing!

  35. Neil Alvin

    First time to hear about this. Thank you for sharing.

  36. I really love the idea of guided tours via technology. Its a good way to add more details about the locations that would be of interest.

  37. This is completely new to me. Looks useful while traveling alone. I will surely try this next time.

  38. Elizabeth O

    This is just perfect!!! Very convenient if your next destination is just a walking distance.

  39. How have I not heard of GPS self guided walking tours. I love that you can use them offline too cause I am the worst about buying data in foreign countries so I always have no service unless on wifi. But this is great because it works offline too and you can get a great route!
    So Mirela, does the $20/annually, allow you to download all the articles you want or is there a monthly limit or something?

  40. This is great! I’ve tried using audio guides on my phone before and this seems like another way to do that

  41. Never heard of a GPS guided tour but I totally understand why it would be super useful especially when you can still use it offline. Thank you for sharing.

  42. this is what I need the next time I travel abroad especially in those countries that have different language. This will be very helpful.
