Google Maps Timeline shows your past location history in much detail.

Google Maps has the feature to track your every location.  Google easily remember all the places you visit using its Timeline feature.

Google Timeline shows your location history on a map as well as shows the exact places you have visited. And believe me Google is quite accurate in doing that. Not only this, it also gives you the option to confirm a suggested place. Google also show you the images you have clicked at the places you have visited.

Besides knowing to which places you went, Google also detects, if you travelled by train or by plane and displays that information on your map.
