    Was very informative- liked the self paced aspect. Could take time and stop To shop/eat along the way.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thanks so much for your feedback, Jaclynn! I'm thrilled that my tour of Downtown Gettysburg added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other national parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the US. Hopefully, you’ll get the chance to try them next time! Also, just 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.
    Confusing. We would have been better off paying extra to get a live tour.
    Mary_L, Oct 2022
    The self tour was pretty confusing and it was difficult to tell where we were on the map. Plus there were two of us and, due to the noise on the street, we could not hear the narration. We could read the information. The other thing I was not happy about is that most of the places on the tour route were souvenir/gift shops and it was extremely difficult to see what was being pointed out, historically, on the tour
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Thank you for your feedback, Mary! I recommend that every tourist buy one per person unless they are ready to share the headphones. I specified in the description, "Stick to our recommended route for the best experience," yet you guys are not following the app's plan. I also have 100 more self-guided tours for various parks, scenic drives, cities, and historical places in the United States – perhaps you'll have a chance to experience them the next time you visit! Also, as a reminder, the tour you purchased is valid for a lifetime. As a result, you may listen to it at home or at your next visit.
