Yesterday I used the Muscle Florence / Muscle Shoals Area Attraction Ticket to visit some of Northwest Alabama’s attractions. I like how convenient it was to just show the app on my phone when I got there and not have to pull out cash or credit card each time. (I felt like I was in the express line at an amusement park.) I recommend that if you visit the area, get the two-day pass. Most of the attractions are open from 10-4 and you need to allow yourself some time to take them each in. This was my third time using GetYourGuide and won’t be my last.

Great tour. Pros: Easy to follow walking directional area at top of screen. Excellent narration and sound effects. Learned some local history with nationwide impact in an hour ttT I could start when I wanted and pause as needed to read historical landmark signs, get a drink, etc. Cons: Couldn’t locate the photos run the app that were referenced in the audio. Tip: During the summer, start early or late when the sun is down to avoid the heat. Some parts of the walk have little shade.

Well worth the money. Great tour, perfect length, professional, and interesting. Beat my expectations.
