To begin the tour, start at the Cape Cod Visitor Center, following the route and speed limit for the best experience.

As you enjoy the scenery, discover the history and culture of the Nauset tribe. Continue to Eastham and trek down to First Encounter Beach, where the Nausets had their first contact with Europeans. See Cape Cod’s prettiest lighthouses, and hear about the importance of these buildings. The route has plenty of optional detours where you can make stops, like at the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary.

Excelente guía sin conductor, la aplicación se activa sin mayor problema y da información interesante de cada punto, solo a considerar en esta guía es que la visita al monumento tiene un horario estricto que no es mencionado y es de los últimos puntos de interés. Vale la pena escuchar el recorrido previo a la visita para sacarle mayor provecho, también hay varios faros cerrados por reparaciones ojala pudiera tener actualizaciones en tiempo real para saber si es posible o no visitar algunos puntos, 100% recomendable y a un excelente precio.

I lived in Boston and have been to the Cape several times... but my Sis was visiting and recommended this. Worked great, and learned a few new things!
