Go at any speed

We wanted to go slow, take our time to enjoy the trip. This worked very well. The app showed us the route and told us the stories. We stopped for lunch, pictures, and more pictures. Lake is beautiful. Weather was ok. It rained a bit but we were in the car and still listening to the stories.

I have been here twice before but had no idea about so many things that the Action app told us. Thank you.

Great stories

We started the app at Tahoe Vista as we were staying nearby. The app worked flawlessly. Enjoyed the historical stories and tales. Really added to our drive around the lake. Well worth the price of admission.
