What people are saying about Bryce

It was a little confusing at first. The messages don't go in order and we thought a few had been skipped, so we manually played them. We hadn't realized that there are also messages for the drive out, so we ended up hearing those twice. One of the messages was really choppy and we missed half of what was said. I don't know if it wad the reception, or just that message. But it was really informative. I've been to the park a few times, but I got more out of my visit this time because of the program.

The guide was very informative. The only issue with it is that when you reached the next chapter where it would kick on, it would go back to the 1st chapter and you would have to scroll ahead to the correct one. There were 2 of the chapters that didn't play. We did enjoy hearing about Bryce Canyon and the stories of its history.

Really recommended for the money. You can see all the highlights and get tips for hikes. Really great. The only thing that was noticed negatively is that there is nowhere the number of miles or kilometers for the hikes. However, that is very important. Should you still do it. Otherwise great.

We had fun, learned a little about the area and it’s history and saw some wildlife. Great guide.

Works well. I am glad i brought this prior to the trip
