Best app!!!!

This app is truly awesome! I never write reviews, but just had to. We used it during our recent stay in Big Bend NP, we’ve been here plenty, but learned new things, thank you!!! Will be purchasing the yearly subscription on our year long RV trip in 2023. Looking very forward to listening!!!!

Essential for national park lovers

This app is awesome and makes the national parks come alive especially since so much of the museums are closed for COVID. We have used most of the guides and I recommend this to anyone going to the parks.

Fantastic APP

This is a fantastic APP. It gave us so much pleasure to listen to while traveling through Utah! I never write reviews but this one is so good that I really want to say something. The app tells you about nature, plants, animals, human history… who did what and much more - better than having a tour guide! Love the APP!

I never write reviews for apps - You need this

This is the most useful app I’ve ever paid for. $30 for the year is so worth it!! We have enjoyed our national park adventures so much more knowing the history and areas of interest around. It is literally like having a personal guide. We have made several AWESOME side trips because we heard about them on this guide. If you travel to national parks do yourself a favor and BUY THIS. You won’t be sorry!

Great app

Love this app during our most recent trip to Yellowstone highly recommend. Minor things that were annoying. Some of the ones you stop for don’t play when you stop. Try and press on it for playback still does not work. Pause button is so small hard to push it when driving. Maybe a simplified driver mode with a fat pause button? Lastly drive in from west Yellowstone phenomenal honestly the gold standard but where is that attention to detail for mammoth? Totally blow past a lot of facts from the north gate to facts about the spring to even just talking more about fort Yellowstone there is so much rich history. Overall app is great just wish there was more focus on attention to detail in other parts of the park. Great app though.

Excellent app but needs updated

This is a fantastic app with lots of really great information, including history and descriptions of attractions based on location. Some of the info is outdated, such as camp grounds described as first come, first serve that are now reservation only. If you’re going to multiple parks, download the guides before you need them. While we were leaving Yellowstone, it advised me to switch to the Tetons plan but I had no cell coverage, so we traveled several miles into the park with no info available. Still highly recommend!

Our whole family loves this app!

We have four kids from 7-18 and they all enjoy learning as we’re driving around the parks. My husband and I love how it points out things we never would have noticed. It’s like having a personal tour guide as you’re driving through the parks! I can’t recommend the yearly subscription enough!

Best Money I Have Spent

This app is awesome! We used it in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons and learned so many things we would have never known. It made navigating so much easier and we discovered places to stop that we would have passed by. The narrator is also funny! I have already recommended it to several friends. I wish I had known about it when we visited other National Parks in the past. I HIGHLY recommend it!

It’s better than nothing

I used this guide at Joshua Tree, Grand and Bryce Canyon. I found it to be glitchy. It would cut off the last word and it was too late in announcing upcoming sites. I was going the posted speed limit or under. Also, there wasn’t much added that you couldn’t find by reading the street signs. Also, you can’t go back and re-listen if you want to hear it again. It wasn’t really that great in my opinion.

AMAZING

I found a pamphlet for a free two days with this app. My boyfriend and I were visiting Yellowstone and didn't have any tours scheduled so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to download it, if it wasn’t all it was choked up to be we could just turn it off. After getting my free trial I got an email from the creator/owner (Greg which we called the tour guide from then on) we LOVED having this app. It was informative (fun stories behind lakes names etc), helpful (‘if you like mosquitoes and anticlimactic views turn here’), and funny (some great stories about bears trash and dynamite LOL!) We loved the app so much we’ve decided to use it for our next national park trips. We don’t think we visit parks enough to purchase the annual pass but we will definitely be using this again! Thanks Greg!
