    A nice drive but unstable commentary

    Couldn’t download. With poor cell service along Parkway, your would stop and fail to restart when using camera functions on phone.

    A great addition to our mountain drive! The audio tour was informative and engaging. Jefferson was a fun personality.

    Finally getting the app to work. It was a struggle to download it and maybe it did not download properly
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
    Thanks for the review Tim. Downloading the tour is as simple as entering the unique code we send and tapping download, however a WIFI connection or good mobile signal is required. There is no signal on the Icefields Parkway itself, so you need to get it set up before hitting the road.

    Tripvia app unrealible.

    The first half was okay, but the Tripvia app crashed about halfway along the route. When I restarted it, it has lost the download and the is not cell service so no way to recover it for the rest of the journey.

    Thanks for the review Mark. I have not heard of anyone experiencing the download being lost before. I will let our developers know. Thanks.

    Excellent narration for a beautiful drive.

    Excellent product. Interesting topics, good historical and geographical information, and made the drive more enjoyable. We liked the multiple choice questions and it made the listening more interactive. Great use of GPS to trigger the narration at different locations. Very worthwhile and a great value for the price.

    The waterfalls and gorges were nice the description was accurate of the falls. We would have wished that there was more descriptive information about the mountains and scenic views instead of the trivia question a

    Thanks for the review Anne. Most people enjoy the trivia aspect of the tour as it only takes a few seconds, but we'll take that into consideration for future versions.

    We enjoyed the suggestions for places to stop & information. The drive of course was incredible too. Trivia was a fun touch. Will look for more tours in the future. For the price you can't go wrong.

    Better to hire a guide or drive unguided.

    The recording kept on replaying. I didnt know whether we were at the right spots or not and the script was more distracting than enlightening.
    icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
    Thanks for your review and sorry you had a poor experience. It sounds like you may have downloaded the tour with poor reception, which can cause audio playback issues. We recommend using WIFI on the initial tour download rather than mobile signal, especially for this tour as the reception is poor in the mountains.

    The drive was absolutely...

    , Aug 2021
    The drive was absolutely beautiful and it was helpful having the guided tour for information and knowing where to stop. What I didn’t love about the guided tour was the silly commentary. I guess okay if you’re driving with kids under 12, but a bit annoying if you’re a group of adults.
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
    Thanks for the review Susan. The tour was geared more towards families, but we're working on a new version that is more for adults. Next seasons we'll have both a family version and an adult version. Your feedback helps a lot, thanks!

    Well worth the $6. Covered all the main sites and a great selection of the lesser known. The GPS matched the sites in an area with no cell coverage, and tour works travelling either direction.

    Not what I expected.

    , Jul 2021
    This was just 'ok'. I found it a bit juvenile and it was tricky trying to restart the tour again if we got out of our vehicle to view something. Part of our GPS tour was 'glitchey' as the audio would cut-off near the end of the segment. I then read aloud the remainder of section (the tour provides a written script of everything said). I'm thankful this was only $6.
    icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
    Thanks for the review. The audio cutting out at the end happens if your WIFI or mobile signal cuts out during the tour initialization. We are releasing a fix to this issue soon (in the meantime make sure the signal is good when you tap 'start'). Our goal was to make the tour great for kids too, but we'll keep that in mind as we work on the next tour update.
