Good points. But even if the UX is great, product tours make sense because they can show the actual value which might not be directly apparent.
Just a little background on this write-up.
All of it started with an interesting thought,“Are Product tours replacing regular User Onboarding?"
So I did some digging on my own and then asked the folks here at DN - https://www.designernews.co/stories/86645-are-product-tourswalkthroughs-replacing-regular-user-onboarding
The discussion was fruitful and I knew what had to be written. To all the folks who are reading, this I would love to hear your thoughts on the Product Tour.
