The app worked great and the information was very informative.
It was great! We had a beautiful day an awesome pictures! Money well spend.
This app does not work at all; no matter what direction you put, it always backs to the first step and repeats the same sentence.
Waste of money find another app
The app Tricks you it says it’s free but when you’re on the road I want you to pay five dollars
Nice, informative tour. Could use music in between the sites/points.
For just $5 you have a handy guide in your pocket. The information was interesting and the narrator engaging. The app has a very useful app and the guides Auto Play when you reach certain locations. The app made it easier to navigate and stop and learn about all the various locations. We really enjoyed the drive. Well Worth It!
Think of it as the Rick Steve’s of 17-mile. An upbeat shepherding voice to narrate while you drive. Really a great idea to seamlessly tour the spots without having to stop and read along the way. Very efficient option. Pro tip though: this is best used if you have a passenger serving as DJ and navigator. It doesn’t guide you to the next stop, as easy as the route may be. Helper can also DJ some of the additional “More” snippets and help navigate where the sites actually are, since the narration starts before you arrive at the spot. But overall a worthwhile purchase.
Beware! Just know that if you purchase this app - which is a great concept - and it doesn’t work for you as it did not work for me - getting a full refund is impossible. It’s not worth the battle and since it’s a small amount of money it seems ridiculous to argue w them about it.
Best $5 we have ever spent. It was very easy to follow. The App knew our exact location when we were on the drive. Lots of history and the views were amazing with great voice. We really enjoyed the drive while taking this tour.
