The tour itself is great. Easy to understand and with good directions that are easy to follow. One thing to be aware of is that the app needs to download the full tour audio before you can start, so if you’re somewhere without good data coverage (that happens, you’re travelling) it means a lot of sitting and waiting before you can start. That plus the fact that the option to pick up halfway through later didn’t work and kept resetting me to the initial starting point prevents this from being a 5-star recommend.

The tour was fantastic. I like loved being able to turn it off and on when I wanted to spend additional time at any given site. Definitely recommend.

App did not work. Support tried to upsell us to a different tour. Will never use again!
