4.5 / 5

based on 21 reviews

Everything available offline. The app works great and the location also works perfectly. The audios are of good length. You learn a lot along the way, but you are not overwhelmed by information, so that you can really take something away with you. There could be more audios and/or a category with overlapping audios. Overall it's very good and I would definitely recommend it!

It was great though we did have Google maps on one phone and this app on another. V informative. I had a technical issue whicb support sorted out within minutes via chat. Only annoyance is hearing the instruction to go back to the map and follow the route for 150 times.

The GPS functionality worked very well and the tour was quite interesting. I wish the additional points of interest feature worked without Wi-Fi or service and was more imbedded into the tour. Definitely worth the money!

Very informative and easy to use. First class support 👍. I can only recommend.

The tour is very good, it has very interesting information. Highly recommended.
