Meet your new best travel friend: Detour. There is nothing worse than getting shuttled around a new city to each and every tourist trap. Detour gives you location-aware tours of cities helping you see the true gems that you would miss on a traditional tour.

In a group? Detour can sync the audio across a set of phones and if you're on your own you can tour at your own pace and resume where you left off. What's really exciting is the potential for audio tours submitted from the people who know these areas the best whether that's a traditional tour guide, journalist, artist, or even knowledgeable locals who will soon be provided tools to create their own tours. Detour will be launching in San Francisco later this year with more cities to follow in 2015.
