Tour Buddy Apps helps tour operators all over the world engage and delight visitors.  Learn more about how Tour Buddy Apps helps tour operators here.

The City of Easton, Pennsylvania is one of Pennsylvania’s most historic towns nestled in the Lehigh Valley on the border of New Jersey.  With an iconic town square, wonderful architecture, canal boats, and so many family friendly attractions, the city of Easton wanted to share their rich history with locals and visitors on their free trolley ride around the city.  Not only does the free trolley take visitors around the historic downtown area, but also over to Hugh Moore Park and the Delaware Canal Boat Museum

The GPS triggered Tour Buddy App allows the trolley to provide a location based tour over their speaker system.  The hands free audio automatically plays and the trolley driver focuses on road safety and transportation as guests enjoy the tour.  Tour Buddy expedited the process of setting up the tour with an onsite visit to help the city of Easton launch their tour quickly with expert advice on timing of audio and training the staff to use the app.

 

The City of Easton Trolley runs their historic route on the weekends as well as several other routes to service the farmer’s market, a night route and trips to and from the Canal Museum.  See their full list of tours and so much more at Easton Trolley.
