I’ve just discovered one of those marvelous travel websites that really does give value above and beyond the call of duty.
You know how, when you get to a new town or city, you want to take a look around, a walking tour?
In the real tourist hotspots there are plenty of commercial operators willing to assist in that regard. Nuffink’ wrong wif that is wot I sez. We all have to graft a few bob ‘ere and there. It’s probably a nice little earner for the guides.
Of course there are also the “free” tours. Yeah, right! Or more likely “Yeah? Nah!”. You are “expected” to give a tip. You don’t have to, of course, but if you elect to give the money a miss you look like a right old miserable git.
So here’s an answer.
Go to https://www.gpsmycity.com . They have pre-packed self-guided walking tours to just about every town or city you might ever wish to stroll around.
I’m sure they are pulling in a quid here and there somehow – though on a quick look I can’t see how – but to be honest I would happily pay a few bucks for one of their tours.
Haven’t tried them yet – bloody lock-down – but as soon as I can I shall give it a go and report back.
