Worth the money to stay on course
Mark_D, Mar 2023
The app worked perfectly. It was informative however I think it could have provided more details. Although there are down times in what you are seeing, there are so many facts that could be provided during the travel time that could fill the time. More information is never a bad thing. It was definitely worth having to keep you from experiencing the whole VFNP.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you, Mark! We are delighted to hear that the app worked perfectly for you and provided useful content. I appreciate your suggestion to provide more information during the trip. We recognize that some more interesting facts and details can be shared, and we will consider this in our next tour version. We hope you had a memorable and enjoyable overall experience.
George Washington’s house...
Sharon_D, Oct 2022
George Washington’s house was a great experience to see how he lived under the circumstances. He really must have cared for his men and country.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you so much for your feedback, Sharon! I’m thrilled that my tour of Valley Forge added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to improve the tour and earn that extra star! I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the US — hopefully, you’ll get the chance to try them next time! Also, to remind you, the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit.
Valley Forge GPS Guide and Audio Tour
Jay_A, Aug 2022
Very good at telling the history of each stop in the park. Difficult to get it started at first to time correctly with each stop. Would have liked to have been advised as to what exact place I should start the tape so that it picked up GPS faster than it did. I had to double back to stop 2 after going to stop 3. Good value for the $10 invested. Very clear audio and I liked the GPS feature on my car screen when I connected to media output port.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks so much for your feedback and suggestions Jay! I'm thrilled that my tour of Valley Forge added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. The audio starts playing automatically when you get to the spot. The delay was caused by the GPS not being in proper sync. I'm glad you got as much out of the tour as possible and that everything went well:) In addition, I have 100 other tours in the USA. Please check them out on your next vacation. Also, just to remind you that the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit also.
Great tour
Lisa_M, Aug 2022
It was interesting with just the right amount of information. A beautiful park. The tour was great because you can go at your own pace and see just what you want. Because the tour is gps enabled, dialogue starts when you approach a sight.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback, Lisa. If you are still in the area, try out one of the other ten tours we have there. I have a total of 100 tours in the USA. I hope you will consider my other tours on your future vacations.
Thumbs up for Self-Guided Driving Tour!
Pamela_W, July 2022
Informational part of the tour was very interesting and I learned more then I thought I would. Commentary, you do have to get in/out of the car and walk several times or you will not get the full experience of the tour. Definitely will pack sneakers. Definitely will do another tour of this type again. You get to move/stop at your own pace and that was a definite plus.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
That’s fantastic! Thanks so much and excellent recommendations for all future travelers. Hope you get to try my other tours too!
Interesting but lacking tour signs
Donna_T, June 2022
Interesting tour but confusing to follow. No signs. No direction to keep you on track. Hard to drive and follow a map at tbe same time
Response from Host, June 2022
Thanks for the feedback Donna! We can’t control the lack of physical signage onsite but hopefully the “turn right/left” narrations in the tour helped.
Absolutely necessary to have this if you are Touring Valley Forge.
Lisa_M, Apr 2022
Absolutely necessary to have this if you are Touring Valley Forge.. The audio tour was great told us where to go and gave us history as to what we were looking at I wouldn’t do the tour without it very informational
Response from Host, Apr 2022
That’s awesome to hear!! I’m thrilled my tour added so much to your Valley Forge experience! Hope you get the chance to try out my other tours on your future travels!
Missed most of the points of interest
steven_g, Mar 2022
Decent narrative but missed most of the points of interest On the other hand The content that was presented was good quality
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Our tour covers the entirety of Valley Forge including all points of interest, highlights, official park stops, and unofficial but interesting spots — but if there’s anything specific we can add, please let us know! We’d love to improve the tour in any way possible. Please note that it’s important to follow the tour route — that way, all important points are hit.
