Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I just loved this tour. Great bang for the buck. I knew from the onset that many of the places would be closed due to the pandemic. But I still got a great overview of this quirky little town. Rob clearly loves the little town and it shows.
For $5,the app notices if you are not on the path and suggests that you look at the map, without getting you anxious. It took a bit to figure out Rob's directions b
ut the app worked well took a bit of getting used to it. I took my time, shopped a bit , had a nice vegan lunch at Bliss so it took me about 3 hours but probably 1 hrs walking, very leisurely.

Loved it

The tour had a lot of interesting facts and was just the right length of time. Not crazy about the app, as you have to start at the beginning and continue exactly in order. I would have preferred to be able to start anywhere I wanted, like you can do with a museum audio tour.

It was a good way to get an overview of the area. I had two dogs with me, so it was slow going and harder to concentrate, as they kept sniffing things and meeting people and one time got attacked by a huge mean dog, and I went the wrong way probably 3 times which was frustrating. But you won’t have these issues! It was fun to see bubblegum alley and the old brothels, the first coroners house, the foot bridges and the mission. It’s a pretty area. If I hadn’t had the dogs I would have gone inside the history museum and a gallery or two. Was able to shop along the route and start up the tour when finished.

Loved the tour and the quirky little tidbits of info. Really gave us some background of the city without being too much. Thought it was well done and the perfect length. Took us a little time to get familiarized with the voice app, but once we got started, we were fine and liked being able to go at our own pace. Thought it was cool that it used our GPS coordinates. Would recommend it!

I was unable to download the audio tour.
The instructions were unclear.
I was not able to contact a representative via email or phone, for assistance.
It was a waste of my time trying to troubleshoot and a waste of my money!
VERY DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE!!!!!

Learned more about history and items you may have just walked by. Great experience. The pace is great and even tell you where a restroom is along the route. We stopped at had a coffee at the half way point, shopped along the way and had people asking about the tour. I highly recommend it.

Pretty interesting tour that provides a good overview of a lot of attractions in the historic downtown area of SLO. I did find it sometimes hard to navigate and it was not set up to enable one to easily skip a feature and still stay on the tour. That would have made it even more useful.

Great and easy tour! Should notify people it's best to start at beginning. Also Map doesn't adjust to North, so got confused as phone moved around.
