Very informative. It was great to look and listen rather than having my nose in a map trying to figure out what I’m looking at. History of the area was interesting

It was great to have the narrator tell you about what you were looking at and a bit of the history. The trivia questions were fun to play along with as well.

Very informative and entertaining! It was great to know what we were looking at and get some history lessons

It was good to hear about different places that we were not aware of.

Tricky getting started but great info made for a super ride
