What people are saying about Vancouver Island

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.

We had great fun doing this scavenger hunt. Even though we have visited Victoria numerous times we found the tour took us to new spots and interesting new facts about the area. I would absolutely recommend this tour and will look for similar in other cities.

I’m not very history driven, but the way the app guides us with fun interactions, made it very enjoyable.

We have a great drive with this app and the quiz was alot of fun.
