Enjoyable for the whole family, especially when trying to get a tour in the new Covid-safe world.
We were in SF very briefly and wanted something simple we could do on our own to see the city. This tour let us do that! Although we only got out for photos (due to covid), we got to see all of SF’s most popular sites. We did notice that the GPS accuracy would occasionally go haywire - this was either my phone freaking out or the effect of the skyscrapers. Having a second person to catch that effect and manually handle it was helpful.
I had limited time in the city and I used this App and my rental car to drive around and see all the highlights. It worked as they said it would and I came home not feeling I missed seeing the city!
Nice and easy to use app. Simple and smooth UI with no lag in performance. The audio also very clear and understandable. Becasue of the GPS feature, this program always knows where you are. As such it tells you in real time points of interest by you with full decriptioni love this app. Did have an initial hickup of getting it connected to car bluetooth.
Better than other guides. From my experience, this guide is better than other paid audio guides, with much more history interlaced. I can not say enough good things about it. It is very useful especially for those who roadtrip regularly. The information it shares is outstanding. This app is also very easy to use.This is really a best way to change a good road trip to a great one.
Perfect for family trip. Took a family vacation, must admit, app kept the kids attention. Narration was easy to listen to; my teen kids prefered app over their Dad's commentary. Directions and comments were clear and straightforward. Information was insightful and added to our experience. I would highly recommend the app!
I rarely write reviews but this app is just outstanding! I have lived my whole life in SF. We had guests and decided to go for a city tour. My son suggested we buy this audio guide. So much information we had never known about over all these years enhanced the trip for everyone and lead to a few stops we had never made in all of our previous visits. Highly recommended.
The app worked really well and the tech is pretty cool. I didn't have to do a lot of prep before the trip or carry along a tour book, the app does all of that for you. We had some problems with the app and were charged twice, but when we contacted customer service we received help immediately, and resolution was as promised.
