This is great!

Used this tour yesterday with my special needs son. Once you find the starting point, it tells you everything you need to do because it uses geofencing to play messages when you hit certain places on the map. I want to try this with another city soon!

Works well

Play it through once so you understand where to go. We felt like it was taking us to the wrong place at first. It worked great for a self paced tour!

Great tour!

This was a great tour. So easy to follow along with and the content was thorough. We all really enjoyed it.

Nice Tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield

It’s best to start first at the National Museum where you can see brief movies on day 1, 2, and 3 of the three day battle and as well the aftermath. There are lots of exhibits and artifacts. The cost for Veterans and Senior Citizens was $18.75 at the time of our visit 04/27/2023. At the time of the tour using the app Little Round Top was closed for improvements/renovations. Thus a key part of the battle was absent for touring. Otherwise the app was good, but more detail could have been included in my opinion.

Removed “God” from a quoted speech? Really?

In a quote I would expect to hear what was actually said, unless it was stated otherwise, or if a deplorable word was used and no longer appropriate. So is the word God now deplorable and not appropriate to use or be said? In the current app version (9/2022) the Gettysburg Address, which my kids had memorized and was saying along with the recording while the Gettysburg Address was being quoted, removed the word God, and also removed it from the written form on the app. Really?

Fantastic app!

Love how the app guides us so well each step of the way.

Great Auto Tour

This app worked great, giving me directions while telling the story along the way. It flipped back and forth automatically between the map and the points of interest when you reached them. It was a little confusing since the Round Tops were closed, but the app adjusted to my position. I originally got this app a few years ago and had some problems using it, but this time it worked like a charm with my iPhone XS.

Just OK - use the NPS app instead.

Had a so-so experience with this app. The narrator is wonderful, but the functionality of the app itself needs some work. It crashed several times throughout our trip and it was difficult to get back to where we left off. The map was also rudimentary in places with crudely drawn arrows and notes. Even though we were going below the speed limit we had frequent issues where a story would cut off and skip to the next one. When it works, the app is great. There were just too many hiccups that prevent me from recommending this to others. We had full service I used an iPhone 11. After the trip we realized that the NPS app had a guided tour with narration and videos that we could’ve used instead (for free).
