Written by a married couple who so appreciated a similar kind of tour app they bought while vacationing in a national park, they decided to create one of their own for Napa Valley, where they live. They sought out a wide range of authors, people in the wine business, and other resources in order to bring you the valley in a unique way. In addition to the fun narration, you'll find photos and additional written tips, facts, insights, and stories within the app for your enjoyment.
Narration is automatically played from a starting place not far from downtown Napa (the city), and continues as you drive along St. Helena Highway (29) to Calistoga, and then back to the city of the Napa along Silverado Trail (about 60 miles). It can add lots of value whether you use it for an hour, a day, or over multiple days. Download when you have access to WiFi to avoid any cell-data charges. You do NOT use cell data as you drive along. The narration can be played manually too, so you can hear it anytime from anywhere.
If you have already invested in quality (GPS-triggered) narration tours, you know. But if you have not yet been on one, please know that there are some great tours offered by various reputable companies around the world. You might find like we did, that it's your favorite way to travel!
We'd love to hear from you after your Napa Valley tour!
