What is Junket?

Junket curates unique guided and self-guided tours with an unexpected bonus. Augmented Virtual Experiences (AVEs) can be used to add fun and adventure to your tour via the Junket app.

How Does the Junket App Work?

The app integrates GPS-triggered locations that become active within a certain radius.  Photos, text, audio, and sometimes video pop up at your stop.

Depending on the tour/destination, an “adventure” feature is available.  You may be able to activate an outdoor escape room or scavenger hunt experience.  Users compete to accumulate points and earn trophies redeemable at location sites (think souvenir mug or t-shirt!! 😉)

Where Can I Find a Junket Experience?

Junket operates more than 130 tour experiences in 65 cities, so there’s a good chance you’ll find one in a student-friendly destination.  Ghost tours, superheroes, and hidden histories are among the highlights.  Some are even a fusion of favorites!

Some of the most popular student tours include:

  • NYC Superheroes: Marvel and DC Comics Origins
  • New Orleans Ghosts and Ghouls of the French Quarter
  • D.C. Unlocked: Secrets, Spies, and Symbols
  • We Shall Overcome: Williamsburg Black History Experience

Tour dates and times are flexible and are priced competitively depending on the region and season.  Each lasts approximately 1 to 2 ½ hours with options to customize with step-on bus tours or plan a longer experience.

More Fun to Come!

Junket is just getting started with a full-time staff of 25+ hiring managers, operations managers, researchers and historians, writers, and marketing staff.  In addition, they work with more than 275 expert local tour guides in the places you love!

If you’re heading to either of these student destinations, be sure to check them out!
