We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip, however, getting to explore a little off the beaten path was amazing. Adam was a blast of a tour guide. Highly recommend.

We loved the information and it worked very well on our drive forward. We had decided to skip some of the sites and go the end and come back to them. It couldn't find us as easily so we did some manual adjusting.

I had read other reviews that said to turn off the cellular data while using the Tour and it worked perfectly. It would start talking as soon as we hit that point on the map. It was really nice to have!
