The free Tour Blend app brings locations to life using guided audio tours, current and historic photos, and links to on-line resources. When you launch our app, digital content for the nearest region, from Western New York to the Adirondacks, is automatically downloaded to your phone. You can explore the nearest historical sites or craft beverage trails – there’s no need to install a special app for each location.
Imagine walking, biking, or boating along the Erie Canal. As you tour along, you hear a “ping” when you get near a virtual attraction. You then hear an audio message describing what’s special about the location, or you can read about it, or view slideshow images.
Available tours range from historical sites and craft beverage trails; from the Seneca Park Zoo to Finger Lakes wine trails; from towns such as Cooperstown to Niagara Falls. These tours have been built by Tourism Professionals and Tour Operators – all without any programming experience or specialized knowledge – using the Tour Blend Composer.
Load the app now and enjoy. By default, the app will load the content that is nearest to your current location. Touch the Tour Blend logo to select other locations. The app helps you plan your visit by showing you the best attractions, arranged into tours and themes. Then you can use our integrated maps for turn-by-turn directions to guide you there.
—“The Seneca Park Zoo Society uses Tour Blend to provide our guests with a deeper connection to the conservation mission of the Zoo. Guests using the Tour Blend app are provided with rich video, photo, and narrative content on how our Zoo uses science to save species from extinction.”Pamela Reed Shanchez
