The screenshots of the hiking-with-children app show how tidy things are. A filter function quickly shows the tours that are suitable for you.

It's great that the app also works offline. This means that you can download all data to the iPhone via WLAN at home and then use it on the go without a data connection. The GPS tracks of the individual tours are displayed in Google Maps (a cellular connection is required for this) and so you can (with GPS reception) track where you are. But even without a mobile phone connection, you can use the detailed maps very well to get to your destination as a hiking map.
