Great tool to have when visiting for the first time. Wonderful narration of history of park as you drive through. Was perfect for picking the best stops to see wildlife and best views.

Excellent app. I enjoyed the ability to have a guided tour and not be on the schedule of a typical tour. I prefer to be on my own schedule, stopping where I want and having the ability to stay longer at the places I really like. This tour gave me the ability to do just that. The music was excellent and the tour guide was informative and funny. Nice job!
