I did not do the entire tour but I bought it because I was going to visit different pockets of the Bay Area anyways. So, whenever I was driving, I kept the App open and it pointed out lots of fun facts about The Who’s who of Silicon Valley.
Great fun for the family. Enjoyed all the stories. Much cheaper than the bus tours and I could use my own car.
