Ratings and Reviews
Easy to explore
Loved exploring this beautiful town with this tour. We took frequent breaks for lunch, photos, etc and it was easy to turn the tour on/off again.
The only questionable thing was that the Welcome message repeated every time I turned it back on but then the tour would immediately catch up to wherever we were along the route — not sure if that’s a bug or not.
Worked well as advertised
GPS worked well. It played stories automatically as we got to the location. Kind of neat! The most important is that we feel that we saw everything and not missed anything.
