Great tour

Visited Tucson and took the Mount Lemmon tour. It was a great way to spend the day. Loved the history and tour stops. If we had longer I would have definitely done the Saguaro park tour as well, but it’s definitely on the agenda when we visit again. I can’t recommend this app enough.

We used the app for the Mt. Lemmon Scenic Highway tour. It kept us entertained and informed the entire way. We knew in advance of what to look for and when to turn as well as history and geological facts. The music along the tour was upbeat and relaxing. Highly recommend the tours if you are exploring a new place.

Mt Lemmon Tour

This was a great investment and experience. The music and history added a lot to what was already a scenic drive. All the pulloffs and recommendations were spot on. No guesswork.
