Our History

Since 2008, Tour Buddy has helped visitor destinations reach new audiences with engaging multimedia tours delivered through the latest digital devices. We started creating Audio Tours in 2009 and after several years of creating and producing audio tours, wanted to deliver a more dynamic, interactive visitor experience.

We designed the ideal Tour Guide App that delivers location aware information that visitors want in an intuitive and user friendly format. The App Builder website allows our clients to easily customize this sophisticated app for an affordable price. Tour Buddy continues to combine its expertise in multimedia tours with software application development to help clients deliver tour content in the most engaging format.

In August 2019 Tour Buddy was acquired by OnCell. We are super excited about this new chapter, as our platform paired with OnCell’s strong global presence creates a powerful worldwide footprint that will allow us to bring a more engaging visitor experience to a wider audience. The combined product suite will allow us to pick the best solution for our customers, from small museums to the world’s major cities.

The App Builder Platform

Our popular App Builder platform offers a cost effective off-the-shelf App product that allows clients to create their own iPhone and Android apps for audio tours or city/museum/festival guide through an easy-to-use web interface. App features include custom branding, stop images, audio, GPS maps, custom image maps, website and video links and more. For a list of apps created using the App Builder platform, visit Tour Buddy also offers custom app development for Apple and Android platforms.

A mobile app development company at the forefront of audio tour & tourism technology.

Having done web sites for 10 years, your App Builder is enjoyable and intuitive to use. I am enjoying the process of discovering what it can do.

Gettysburg Driving Tour Review

Great DIY audio tour. Worked perfectly and let you explore on your own. Highly recommended!

Walking Tour App Review

My wife and I used this app on our recent trip to Savannah. It was well worth the price we paid to enjoy the history lessons we heard walking the squares and sights of Savannah. We appreciated its detail and usefulness. It’s definitely built for those of us who haven’t visited the area before. Great job on this tool.
