Our Verdict

I feel like a lot of these could be just be YouTube videos (update: these aren’t prerecorded so that makes it a bit more interesting), but if anybody does find any good experiences then let us know in the comments below.

It shows me an error message, “The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to this purchase.” This is my first time using this code or trying Amazon Explore.

This issue was resolved upon contacting Amazon Customer Service. Thanks so much for sharing the offer!

I signed up for one of these the last time they ran a huge discount. It’s a weird novelty. Definitely not a replacement for a real life tour. I wouldn’t spend my time on it again. Amazon is clearly getting desperate as when this first launched it was positioned as a premium product but with all the hugely discounted promotions Amazon must be realizing the natural demand for this kind of thing just isn’t there.

For those asking about quality, it’s definitely not 4K. Probably 720 if I had to guess. It uses a proprietary Amazon technology so you can only watch on a computer (no phone or tablet). Frankly it would have been a better experience to just use Zoom.

Thx. we signed up for a tour of Tsukiji fish market for next Saturday night. It’s not as though our social calendar is full these days.

According to the Q&A the experiences aren’t prerecorded. It’s a live-streaming experience with the guide.

Per the Q&A:

Is my experience prerecorded or virtual reality?
No. Every Amazon Explore session is a live interaction with a host who will lead you through your session. You can see, hear, and talk about things as they happen in real time.

Yeah, that’s the whole point of paying for these as it’s an exclusive one-on-one session. The only issue I have with something like this is that it would be very hard to pull off a high quality 4k live video stream unless you are filming indoors or somewhere with fast 5G, and if I am paying for a visual experience, I would want it to offer higher quality than a regular video call over a cell phone network. Even then, what is the guarantee that the cell phone coverage will be good enough everywhere I would want to “go” (assuming the host restricts the tour to predetermined areas with good cell coverage to overcome that). Niche product for those who really need the live interaction, but I’m happy with high quality 4K documentaries / YouTube videos to virtually visit the wonders of this world (for now).

It could be a much worse: it could be a 4k powerpoint presentation.

I’ve been on some “virtual tours” of Chicago that are 90-minute slideshows narrated from someone’s bedroom.
