Walking Tours Features
Route creation
The minimum number of stops – 10.
Every stop on the tour should be marked with a geotag on the map.
If some stops are located too close (distance less than 50 meters) then no geotag is needed – create a step not connecting it to a specific point on the map.
More about steps and geotags read here.
Stops on the route should be distributed evenly – the distance between them should not be more than 500 meters.
Length of the route – no more than 5 km.
Navigation
Detailed navigation should be provided at each change of location.
Directions should be easily understandable, it is also recommended to add visual directions (photo with pointer-stickers) showing the way.
Mention noticeable reference points (bright yellow building, Aphrodite monument, house with round windows) instead of street names and house numbers.
Additional stories (steps)
Tourists listen to additional stories while walking from one stop to another. Add them so that travelers wouldn't have to walk in silence for a long time
Such stories are not connected to specific locations on the map and are added as separate steps.
In case of long distances between the stops on the route, it is necessary to add 1-2 additional stories.
Stories should be connected with the tour theme, they can be about places that travelers are passing by while walking to the next stop.
Photos
Make sure that the added photos clearly show which object the step is about.
Photos can also be used to make navigation easier for tourists.
If the audio guide is describing small details, the interior of the building, or something that can’t be seen live at this point, please add photos of such objects.
Recommendations
If you know unique locations, cafes, or places to rest which you or your friends like, recommend them to the travelers! Our clients will be grateful to you for taking care of them.
Recommendations are better to be provided in conclusion in case tourists would be hungry after the walk.
In conclusion you can also mention various attractions and entertainment places which are located nearby.
