    Best decison ever to use this guided tour
    Patrice_H, Sep 2023
    This guided tour allowed us to relax and evjoy the key aspects of the park without worrying about missing anything, or fussing about maps and directions. We definiately wouldn't have had such a great time had we not used this guided tour. Many thanks for creating it.

    Exceeded my expectations
    Pamela_M, Aug 2023
    I am so relieved and grateful that I made this spontaneous purchase! I was prepared to spend hundreds on a private tour guide for me and my 8 year old son, until I saw the advertisement for this self-guided tour, and after reading a chunk of reviews I figured "why the heck not?" and just wing it ourselves! That's where the real adventures truly are right? And what an adventure we had exploring every single natural beauty around us at our own pace, schedule, preferences, and in the privacy of our own vehicle. We enjoyed listening to the tour guide's stories and the awesome background music as we were cruising through the park. We had the best time of our lives with this self-guided tour that we returned to the park 3 days in a row! On the 3rd day I already knew my way around without the guide anymore. Overall, we are grateful to have chosen to do our road trip this way, and we look forward to more road trip adventures as Mama & Me Quality Time is our favorite!
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Pamela, your heartwarming adventure story with your son genuinely warms my heart. I'm thrilled that my Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park audio tour could be a part of the special "Mama & Me Quality Time" memories. It's fantastic to hear you embraced the journey's spontaneity and truly made the most of your road trip. Should you both seek more adventures on the horizon, I'd be honored to guide you with my Action+ Tour Bundle, offering over 100 self-guided tours. Here's to countless more memorable moments on the road!
    Perfect for solo traveler
    Annie_R, Aug 2023
    I would have missed a few key parts of the park if not for the audio guide. As a solo traveler i couldnt keep looking at a map. This tour was my map talking to me! The park is beautiful but I got so much more out of my visit with this guide.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023

    Thank you for the guided tour!
    Brittany_T, Aug 2023
    I am so glad I decided to try the audio tour. This tour was fantastic! I love how the GPS functions and keeps you on track even if you are directionally challenged. I traveled solo but didn’t want to pay 39 dollars for a tour. I think I learned so much and had so many options for alternative routes outside of the recommended route. I liked this tour so much that I bought Yosemite, canceled my guided tour, and did Yosemite solo. Thank you! Also, free for life. I can wait to try others as I continue to travel.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Brittany, your words truly made my day! Knowing that our audio tour empowered your solo adventures in Sequoia & Kings Canyon, and Yosemite is deeply rewarding. There's a unique joy in exploring at your own pace, and I'm thrilled that our tour could be your companion. Your trust in our platform is invaluable. As you chart more territories and quench your wanderlust, do remember the Action+ Tour Bundle awaits, offering guidance through over 100 self-guided tours. Here's to many more discoveries and solo adventures! Safe travels!
    Worth it
    Jim_Z, Aug 2023
    Worked well. It would pause every now and than, but otherwise good. Only comment I would make is back off a bit on the loud music. The music is good just keep it at the same level ofvthe voice
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Jim, thank you for sharing your experience and providing valuable feedback. I appreciate the heads-up about the music volume; it's essential that every aspect of the tour enhances your experience. We'll certainly consider that for future updates. Glad to know you found the tour worthwhile! As you continue your explorations, remember that the Action+ Tour Bundle offers over 100 self-guided tours to guide your adventures. Safe travels!
    Terrible service
    Cindy_C, Aug 2023
    The audio tour would not load so we wasted our money on this tour. I would not use this service again if I knew it would have the same result.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    Very unfortunate to hear about the trouble you experienced with the audio tour, Cindy! I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I recommend downloading the app and tour beforehand to ensure a smooth experience. Please get in touch with us with your details; we'll gladly assist you and find a solution.
    Perfect for our trip
    Lynn_W, Aug 2023
    Sequoia and Kings Canyon were magnificent by themselves of course. The audio tour held our attention during the drive, it was both entertaining and informative. I would highly recommend this audio tour.
    Response from Host, Aug 2023

    rnmaker3, Jul 2023
    Great stories told as we drove. College age kids enjoyed it too. It was very nice to be in our air conditioned car and drive through the park. Loved being able to stop any time we wanted.

    Great value tour guide
    Mark_W, Jul 2023
    This was really good value for money and worked surprisingly well. We paid a lot more for a personal tour guide who basically said the same stuff. You can run the app with the sat nav too
    Response from Host, Jul 2023

    My family and I loved the...
    Demarco_F, Jun 2023
    My family and I loved the Grant Sequoia tree, and the overview turnout point where we could see all the redwood and sequoia trees.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Thank you so much, Demar! It's hard not to be in awe of the magnificent Grant Sequoia tree. I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Sequoia & Kings Canyon with the tour I provided and that it enhanced your visit. The panoramic view of the redwoods and sequoias is truly stunning.

    Not a good experience
    Miguel_C, Jun 2023
    Without Internet, it won't work well. I was in Sequioa National Park, no Internet and it won't worked. In addition, the Park was closed and stil they sold me the application.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Apologies for any misunderstandings Miguel! I kindly ask that all users download the app and tour in an area with a stable internet connection. The park will be opening shortly. If you were not satisfied with the tour, I am providing an exchange option. Please reach out to me as soon as possible. My contact information can be found on the voucher.
    Great way to see the sights of Sequoia
    Sharon_P, Sep 2022
    Loved the history narrated, and “optional” stops and trails. The list and map of stops helped keep us straight on the mountain roads. Enjoyed the experience!
    Response from Host, Sep 2022
    Thanks so much for your feedback Sharon! I'm thrilled that my tour of Sequoia and Kings Canyon added to your learning and that you enjoyed it. 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, 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.
    Perfect guide
    Gyrgy_N, Jul 2022
    We like living persons as a guide but this app was working very well. We could choose our own pace during the visit. We liked it very much. It has to be downloaded in advance because there is no coverage in the forest.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thanks so much! I’m so glad my tour was just like a live-guided tour! I also have self-guided tours for other parks as well as scenic drives, cities, and historic sites all over the country — hopefully you’ll get the chance to try them next time.
    Sequioa trip was great
    Ricky_S, Jun 2022
    The audio was excellent. Will do it again. The audio made the trip more memorable. It gave the historical facts.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    That’s great to hear! Let me know what I can improve to earn that extra star!
    Well worth it
    Linda_L, Jun 2022
    Try to understand travel directions from your starting point before committing. Trail for tour provides an easy circuit but allow for a full day.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    So glad you enjoyed visiting both Sequoia and Kings Canyon with my tour! I currently only have the tour starting in Sequoia and ending at Kings but will have a reverse version available soon.
    Best tour ever!!
    Melissa_L, Jun 2022
    This was the best!!!! Thr guided tour took us all around and gave us just the perfect amount of information regarding the history of the Sequoia’s. I highly recommend this to everyone that doesn’t know their way around the Sequoia’s - we would have missed so many spots without our tour guide. Much better than a live tour where you have to wait for an entire group of people at each stop. Each stop we made was our choice on how long we wanted to stay and if we wanted to do a certain trail, etc
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Wow, thank you so much Melissa!! This is exactly what I wanted to accomplish with my tour. I’m so thrilled you enjoyed my stories and the convenience/control of self-guided driving (so much more freedom!). I hope you try out my other tours on your future travels!
    I goofed .. ordered it to...
    Wallis_L, May 2022
    I goofed .. ordered it to late to get it on my phone !! I was in park & it hadn’t gone threw yet !! My fault
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    I’m happy to exchange this tour for any of my other tours (I have several others across the country)! Alternatively, I can help you set this up now for a return visit to Sequoia and Kings (it’s valid for a lifetime and has unlimited uses). Let me know!
    Well worth the $10! Worked flawlessly m!
    Kristin_K, Apr 2022
    The tour was very easy to follow and took all the stress out of being in an unfamiliar place and not wanting to miss any of the Parks’s highlights!
    Response from Host, Apr 2022
