Ratings and Reviews
Extremely well done app with great content
Everything about this app went well beyond our expectations. We visited the Grand Canyon from Sedona via Williams today. The audio had our group of 3 adults and 2 children captivated and looking forward to each new clip. My 4 and 7 year old were engaged throughout the drive and asked to turn it back on on the drive back. The content was polished and interesting to all ages, and the narrator was perfect. Our kids didn’t ask for their iPads the entire trip and learned a ton of cool facts! We were so delighted to see the audio content matching up with our surroundings - it almost felt like we had a tour guide with us in our car. I was skeptical, but the app worked without a hiccup throughout our entire trip. The interface is very well done, simple, friendly, and intuitive. After the trip, everyone wanted to know what other tours were available, and we look forward to trying them when we get the chance!

A Must for Visiting the Grand Canyon
This app was great. We weren’t sure if we should do a tour or just drive, then we found this app and decided to drive. We saved about $500 and the app was great. The whole family enjoyed it and we saw so much and at our own pace. I loved how it tracked your location and gave you directions along the way and relevant stops. It was awesome and well worth the mere $6. Highly recommend this. Fun stories too. Even our 10 and 12 year old kids enjoyed it.
Incredible incredible incredible!!!! We used this app on our drive from Flagstaff to the south rim of the Grand Canyon! The app picked up our location immediately and provided entertainment and info all the way to, during our time in the park, and all the way back from the Grand Canyon! I would love to see them expand to many other trips (including driving Route 66). Hands down the best app I’ve ever purchased!!!!
