Locacious

Peter Grand
Way beyond travel guidebooks - Locacious brings you the real voices of those with a passion for their subject. Add your own to our growing community of guides.

Take one of our many in-depth walking tours.  Share your depth of knowledge with others. Your iPhone becomes your pocket production studio, letting you easily record your tour, photograph and map destinations, and publish worldwide.

EXPLORE

Locacious lets you access existing walking tours wherever you are. Freely download our tours in advance or on the fly. Explore tours virtually on the world map, search for topics, or let Locacious show you what's new, nearby, or featured.

CREATE

Locacious does more than let you take audio tours.  It's easy to create your own. Use your phone to record tour stops on location. Locacious will track your steps for others to follow. Or create tours virtually, and easily position pins on the map.

SHARE

Be the first to put your favorite location on the map! Locacious has its roots in New York, but our community is rapidly extending - to New Orleans, Portland, Paris and beyond.

The free version of Locacious gives you full access to our tours and lets you create your own. When you're ready to publish your tours, upgrade to the guide's version and the whole world can find and follow you.
