The app was extremely easy to use and the information presented was equally interesting. The guide has a wonderful voice that makes you want to learn more about whatever it is he’s discussing! The GPS function works great, and I will say that you should follow the instructions regarding speed to ensure that you don’t miss anything. We loved it and can’t wait to find other tours available in other places!

This guide did a great job of placing us in the context of the war and battles. I recommend keeping to 25 mph and pausing as instructed. When I didn’t, the recording jumped ahead because it is gps triggered. Much cheaper than a bus tour and not bound to its schedule. Never lost the signal. Highly recommend.

The day before we took the bus tour and fell rush. We had more time to explore the monument and sites with auto tour got a better understanding what really happen in 1863 in the 3 days of fighting. Really felt that I was there on those day

It was a wonderful guide to follow. Sometimes the directions were not super clear but the map helped you. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a self guided, go at your own pace, stop when you want to tour. This was so interesting too!

So much history that you can truly see, hear and feel!
