It was a cool Autumn day to drive the route. The directions were easy to follow. We were able to travel at our own speed; taking our time to absorb the information at each stop. We were able to stop at the Visitor Center for an extended period of time and were able to return to audio tour without difficulty.

Travelling with 3 boys on ADHD. The weather ended up being colder than anticipated and it was great to be able to listen in the warmth of the car. Get out as preferred and replay a section if we missed something. The only thing I wish I did that I didn’t was as directed download the tour before we left the hotel in the morning.

The app was extremely easy to use and the information presented was equally interesting. The guide has a wonderful voice that makes you want to learn more about whatever it is he’s discussing! The GPS function works great, and I will say that you should follow the instructions regarding speed to ensure that you don’t miss anything. We loved it and can’t wait to find other tours available in other places!
