Detour is a brand new way to experience the world. Gorgeous audio walks that reveal hidden stories, people and places at every turn. Each Detour takes you at your own pace, your own schedule, alone or synced with friends. When you take a Detour, you’ll put in your earbuds, slip your phone in your pocket and start seeing things in a different way. You’ll walk in other people’s shoes, travel through time and find unexpected joy and intrigue in even the most common or mundane places. Your phone does the work while you become entranced by the world around you. Our goal is to make Detour the best way to experience places – a seamless experience of story and place whether you’re on vacation, traveling on business or looking for something new to do at home.
