So glad I this app made our trip great saw things we wouldn’t have seen and learned about the areas and history. Even got to see sea turtles on the beach due to the information on the tour and such easy directions to follow. Looking forward to some of other tours they have now that we are back on the main land. It’s like having your own personal tour guide and flexibility.

I have never written a review on an app and this app made the trip unforgettable! The best part is it works on airplane mode and still navigating. Loved how each speaker explained each area of each park as well as the history. Loved how it navigated you through all areas of each park, had us doing things we didn’t even think of! I have been recommending to all my pears that travel and explore nature.
