Ratings and Reviews
Great and varied historical immersion
It was awesome to hear these personal stories as we walked the area. I really liked the story of the bombing of Cody’s Books.
The technology is fantastic. Although we would have liked to be able to share the tour over speakerphone. That would be one thing I would suggest.
Easy to use app and was a wonderful way to spend the day with the family!
