About StoryTourist

StoryTourist offers a tourism experience where books, films and other stories come to life, turning the world around us into a playground for the imagination. Imagine solving crimes with Sherlock Holmes in London, exploring the deep sea with The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, or stepping into Hjalmar Söderberg’s Stockholm.

Our app makes all this possible by offering self-guided walking tours based on famous stories. When you take a StoryTour, you will experience the narrative in the very spot where it takes place. The app uses GPS to guide you from one place to another, and once you get there an interaction will be triggered to pop up on your mobile phone screen. Depending on the story, it can be anything from old images of what this spot used to look like, to sounds, puzzles or animations that will tie reality and story together.

Through the StoryTourist app you will be able to find out what your favourite fictional place looks, tastes, smells and sounds like.

Why StoryTourist?

Our walking tours are perfect for:

  • Travellers who’d like to go sightseeing in an immersive and flexible manner.
  • Anyone who enjoys audio books and sometimes wish they could step inside the story they are listening to.
  • Puzzle game lovers and fans of escape rooms.
  • Residents who wish to discover a story hidden in their own city.
  • Families or friends looking for a fun activity to do together.

There are many reasons to take a StoryTour:

It is an affordable option to other guided tours. No tipping or additional costs!

It is 100% flexible; you can start, pause and end the tour whenever it suits you.

There is no need to keep up with a tour guide, our GPS-based map function and the narrator of the tour will be your personal guide and you can walk in your own pace.

You don’t have to walk around in a group if you don’t want to, this tour is perfect to take alone, with a friend or with your whole family.

We offer immersive interactions that traditional tours don’t have; you can solve intricate puzzles, trigger sounds and animations and search for clues in your immediate surroundings!
