The narration was clear and interesting. Added a lot to the long walk. The map and GPS location helped us. Used my phone with earbuds, which worked fine. My only minor issue was that the info was repeated at several sites. Would recommend this tour.

Great tour, really interesting content. Everyone enjoyed the walk and the stories/fun facts really added to the experience. Well worth the money. GPS and directions were a lifesaver. Really great for the family.

The learning is great for the kids. Better if you have a navigator in the front as it was hard to follow directions and concentrate on the road. Beautiful drive and informative narration.
