Absolutely worth it ! We found ourselves needing some adventure help and the app was perfect! really easy to hear and follow directions. My thoughts on guided tours.. NOT FOR ME but this was fun the narration is really chill and funny no boring history lessons just really great info. I had accidentally left the app going and we hit one of the spots it started and we both had a good giggle so you could just let the app run randomly 🤣 that's how many great tips/sites the app has. Do it !
