About HermitGuides

An idea that sprang to life in 2008, HermitGuides was created, designed and developed by a small team of dedicated travel enthusiasts in Vancouver, Canada. Bringing these walks to life has been, quite simply, a labour of love. Hundreds of hours of research, writing, travelling, walking, recording and editing goes into crafting each one. The guides who have lent their voices to the audio tracks are the same people who have strolled along the streets, alleys, roads and bridges featured in our walks.

HermitGuides city walks are available as a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. HermitGuides is available in English and can be downloaded free of charge in early 2015.
