Excellent guide. The gps synchronization works very well and allows a dynamic visit. Version in English only but fairly easy to understand except for technical terms. Can be improved: the orientation information when several sightings in the same place... "return to us... if you are facing the road... go back in the opposite direction" sometimes confused if in the meantime we observe something that doesn't is not mentioned in the guide. But overall the review is very positive.

Good. Just too many groups in with guides which prevented us from listening easily to our audio guide.
