Zero to Tour
What you do:
Decide what you want to talk about on your Tour. Send us at least 3 lines describing your Tour and the content you intend to deliver. The more information we have, the more we can help.
Tell us where you want your Tour. Identify where you’d like to start, and end, and the stops you’d like in-between.
Stops are points on your Tour where you want the user to stop walking for more than a few seconds. These can be places where you want to point out something visual, like a building or a sculpture, or they can be a spot where you’d like to send someone inside a location.
TIP: Keep your stops close - you want 2 to 3 blocks between each stop. (The ideal walking route won’t be longer than 1.5 miles. If your route involves something other than walking we'll help you work that out.)
Maximum of 5 stops in addition to the start and end points.
Share anything else you have with us - a *Descript file, a Google MyMap, treatment, script, post-it notes, etc. *Descript is the application you will use to create your tour, you'll receive it for free as part of your subscription to the Detour Platform.
What we do:
We take everything you tell us and turn it into a complete outline for your Tour.
What you get:
A Descript file with a complete route, pins for navigation and all your stops, and navigation language.
A framework in Descript for the structure of your story, or guidelines for where to best deliver your content, depending on the kind of Tour you are producing.
Advice on how to write the script for your Tour, based on the kind of Tour you are producing.
Two follow up emails to answer any questions.
One revision to pin placement, stops, and navigation, should you decide to make changes to your Tour.
We prepare your Tour for testing in the Detour App so you can take it out and walk it.
We send you off with instructions for what to do next!
