Cool idea but the app gave us a starting point at the end for some reason and the audio only worked at a few spots. Tampa river walk was super cool though, highly recommend the area just didn't get much out of the tour due to tech glitches

Très bien. Cela permet de s’informer sur la ville tout en se promenant. En plus, rien n’empêche de faire des détours et de reprendre la visite par la suite. Je recommande.
