Walking Tours With Cell Phone as Guide

If your clients are looking for a new approach to touring cities take a look at Stray Boot Tours' newly launched Seattle: The Game tour series. The program offers an alternative to traditional tours that rush visitors through the highlights with sometimes boring commentary, Stray Boots reports.

Seattle: The Game uses mobile technology to immerse users in informative and enjoyable self-guided, interactive tours. It combines the fun of a scavenger hunt with the sights and history of a top-notch tour. Other cities covered by interactive tour program includes: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC.

Seattle: The Game is easy to use and works with the text messaging capability of virtually every US mobile phone, the company says. Users are guided with text messages that include riddles, puzzles, photo opps and trivia questions as they tour the points of interest along the route. Each response earns the user points, making it possible to compete between groups of friends, family members, or pre-assigned teams.

Seattle: The Game is a completely self-guided experience. Users can start when they want and set their own pace as they go. Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete. For a video demonstration visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=SK_2YZPwxCk&feature=youtu.be.
Designed for Seattle locals and tourists alike, Seattle: The Game offers three meticulously-researched tours. Seattle: The Game tours cover major tourist sites and attractions and also includes "insider" off-the-beaten-path gems. Inaugural tours include:
    •    Pike Place Market tour, which guides users though the fresh food market and unique and eccentric shops; the original Starbucks; and exclusive points of interest along the way.
    •    The Pioneer Square tour combines the history and stunning architecture of the city with visits to some modern-day Seattle curiosities.

    •     The Seattle Art Museum Tour offers an adventure that's impressive and inspiring. A top destination for art lovers, it is made easily navigable through text messages. Separate admission to the museum is required.
