After purchase, the download code for the app came by email after 12 hours (not 24 hours as described in the text). Installation with it worked fine. On the road, I used the app on most journeys. Everything worked well here too - the information came to the right places and the digressions were a great podcast replacement. Overall was very satisfied.

Norah was terrific. Took us around town; many stops to see sites and learn about the city. It was a good time and we appreciated her taking us round about many of the locales I wanted to check out.

My experience was great! Our instructor was excellent and the weather was very good.

It’s a really good way to get to know the city by a local point of view…

We needed more than the 4 hours we had. It was so interesting!
