About
Hook your smartphone up to your vehicle's stereo and listen to a tour guide while you drive! Follow the famous Cabot Trail, one of the most scenic roadways in the world! It’s actually a big loop. We’ll be traveling counter-clockwise around it in order to get the best views. The Cabot Trail runs 298 kms, or 185 miles, long but there are plenty of stops along the way. You can take in the view, shop for one-of-a-kind crafts, hike, golf on some of Canada’s best courses, go on a whale watching adventure or simply indulge your taste for freshly caught lobster. With no time constraints, enjoy the freedom to stop anywhere and explore. Tour guide commentary plays automatically as you drive, using an easy to navigate live GPS map. No data is used during the tour. This audio guide will keep your group entertained & engaged along the way. Each point of interest also has a fun multiple-choice trivia question about the sights. Trust the platform with over 75 tours & 10,000+ happy customers.

Audio tour worked well on my iPhone. Some nice historical notes about many of the locations. Lots of gps landmarks and they came on before the actual landmark which was very nice. I personally also liked the little triva quiz at end of each landmark.

We enjoyed learning about different areas on the Cabot Trail. We were directed to great viewpoints and given interesting facts about places along the trail. We were able to start from where we were staying, and also listened as we went back the other direction.

My wife and I bought the Cabot Trail Audio Driving Tour and really enjoyed it. We listened on our car audio as we drove the route. Each stop was activated by our GPS location. All were interesting and several were also entertaining. Highly recommend.

The audio tour was great to have on the Cabot Trail. It had a lot of great information and interesting bits of trivia. However, the tour was only for the counter-clockwise direction. It would be great to have an option switch it to the other direction.
