Highly recommend this audio tour! - Purchasing the audio tour was the best decision! It gives you so much history and really connects you to the park. It’s just the right amount of information without overdoing it. Will always purchase these audio tours for every national park and any other drive it’s available for. Enhanced our experience ten fold! Highly recommend!

Shenandoah March 2024 (end of month) DEFINITELY WORTH IT! - Listening to the tour while exploring the park was amazing! So much detail on hikes and overlooks for some beautiful sights! Have a trip planned for Acadia NP soon and can’t wait to use this again. Wont lie was a bit skeptical about it at first but so worth it! You learn about the destination while exploring it and seeing the sights!
