I liked this tour. I appreciated that the app allowed downloading and I was able to listen offline, as we were out of the country and had no cell service. The ability to go at your own pace and see each of the stops was nice. Also seeing the map up front and being able to listen out of order if we travelled a different path was helpful. Would recommend.

I like that the commentary was also included in written form so if reception was wonky, I could always read the information. Also, that I can take my time and wander off the path, coming back when I want.

After a little trouble figuring out how to work the app, I found this to be good value for the money, with interesting facts but not an excessive amount of detail.
