REVIEWS “It was a reasonably priced tour with flexibility on timing. Key rock formations were highlighted and history of local native Americans was told. One story I enjoyed was how the desert features here were used in the cartoon of the roadrunner (beep beep) and the Wiley Coyote!! at the insistence of the cartoonist. “The self guided tour definitely helped us enjoy more than we would have on our own. We enjoyed the narrative as well - very informative.” FREE DEMO vs FULL ACCESS: Check out the totally free demo to get an idea of what this tour is all about.

We loved the story of the roadrunner vs wiley coyote (beep beep!). Brought back great childhood memories! The stories of the gold thieves and horse smugglers were also great. Loved that this tour made our visit so interesting.
This looked like it would be great, but the app kept crashing. It was unusable and I requested a refund.
Tried everything to make this work, but it wouldn’t load correctly or sense position. I made sure to purchase and download ahead of time, and made sure location services was enabled for the app. I wasted $10 and had to guide myself through Joshua Tree. Update: The app developer kindly offered me a gift card for another tour guide, so I might try again in the future with another destination.
I found this app, by chance, when researching Joshua Tree National Park. I am so happy that I did! It gave us so much more insight Into the park, the landscapes and area of interest.
What a fun way to see the park. This was my second trip to the park and I actually enjoyed in even more! Learnt so much of what I was seeing around me. Will definitely be trying their other Apps on my next trip.
The narrative started on its own at each way point that had info. It was interesting and informative. The park is so beautiful and this only adds to the experience. It felt like a good amount of info in an easy to listen to narrative. Interesting and helpful. Well worth the $5.00! I would download another tour from this company if I’m in another location that offers it. Thanks!
The stories are so good. The whole area is nice but these stories made it alive. Very well narrated tours. I would also like it in reverse.
