Good times full of laughter
Amy_B, Dec 2021
Driving past the location and then the narrator saying “pause here” then listen to a 3 minute explanation without being near the location. Super glad I knew area well which allowed us to double back to location frequently. Lots of giggles and laughter. Amazing experience since 2/3 are unable to do traditional tours.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi Amy, I’m glad your group enjoyed the commentary even though the “pause” instructions were too abrupt. We can certainly work on that to make sure they’re heard well in advance.
