There are few things I find worth promoting, but I am a big advocate of walking. It's not just invigorating exercise, it's also the only way to really explore the nooks and crannies of great cities. I have bought walking tour books for various cities in the past, but it seems awkward to carry a book around, so I usually tried to memorize as much as possible and leave the book in the hotel room. Then, there's always the tour bus option.
I was approached recently by GPSmycity.com to mention their iPhone city tour apps on this blog in exchange for ten free walking tours for my readers. Initially I made some sort of derisive snorting sounds, because I don't promote products on this blog, but I was curious enough to take a look. (Click here for the demo.) I have to admit, I think they're pretty wonderful. I also want to point out that I get nothing from this other than the giveaways for you. No payment and no free apps for me.
So, if you are interested in one of these apps, leave a comment on this post, describing which city you would want to visit and why. You can choose one of the cities listed above, or go to their site and pick one of the other ones they have (there are lots!) I will do a blind drawing from the responses received to pick ten winners, and announce them on Monday, January
Oh, and here's the back of the card.
