This was the first time that I used this guide and it was very helpful for our drive. Instead if just driving and looking around we were informe about what we were seeing with a lot if descriptors. Made the trip much more interesting.

It was a little confusing learning how to use the app however we saw places that we would never have seen if we hadn’t use the app so glad we did this.
