    The app gives you two options: to start at the north of the lake or to start at the south. We started at the north and realized the app is useless for that. The way that it is designed is that a narrative is triggered at certain geographic locations. It seems that the app designers designed the app going south to north. When one goes north to south, the narration is played one block at a time in a reverse order than the one going south to north. As a result of that the announcement about approaching a site is triggered after you passed the sight when going north to south. This is so frustrating! It took us several such sites that we missed until we realized that. We then drove all the way to the south starting point to start over in the right order. Once we used the app south to north everything worked well and we were very pleased. I wished this discrepancy was known when you download the narration going north to south. We wasted a lot of time and experienced much frustration dealing with this shortcoming.

    There are two routes - one starts in the north, and one begins in the south. Both go clockwise. I think you were going to counter-clock the first time. I am also available by calling, chatting, and emailing for any questions. Anyway, I am glad that it all worked out. I have 100 other tours in the US. Please check them out on your next Tour. Also, this tour is yours for a lifetime. Please listen to the stories at home, use them for the photo library, or use it on your next trip.

    Content great. Way points good and accurate. Audio needs work with volume fluctuation from one stop to the next. Android phone connected to Bluetooth, but could not figure out a solution, so we just let it play whether it was loud enough to hear or not.

    Awesome way to spend the day learning about Lake Tahoe. We had a bit of trouble finding the starting point, but after that it was smooth sailing! We love the stories of all the lake legends! We would recommend this tour for anyone who has limited time in Tahoe and wants to see the whole lake!

    The self guided tour was very easy to use and very informative as you went around Lake Tahoe . The best part was it was very easy to use told us the best places to stop and we would use it again the next time we are in Lake Tahoe. We would definitely recommend it if you have never been to Lake Tahoe and I know you won’t be disappointed.

    What a wonderful experience! It felt like we had a private tour guide with us, and we learned so much about the history behind Lake Tahoe that we couldn’t have known otherwise. It gave us a deeper appreciation for what we were seeing. This app is so cool in that it is GPS guided, so that the relevant recordings start exactly when your vehicle approaches the site. 5 stars!

    What a great and easy way to navigate your way around Lake Tahoe. Read some reviews regarding connection issues but we didn’t have any problems. Downloaded the guide at our hotel so everything was right on our phone. If we were in a bad cell coverage area we could still navigate using their guide and click on the upcoming attraction to hear the backstory. Very highly recommend if you’re planning a self guided trip around the lake.

    I like it because we really did not know anything about Lake Tahoe. I like that it uses your phones GPS position and starts talking about points and story about the place. It even gave warnings in some spots that may be hard to navigate if you're stopping. Take those warnings seriously if you have any physical impediments. We were able to stop at points and take pictures. It is a great guide to know the points on the Lake that you can mark and comeback later on to explore better. So we used it as on overview and we highlighted some parts we want to go back to another day. Good experience. I took the the advice I saw in one of the reviews and downloaded the tour while I was connected to wifi or faster internet. Your phone depends on your service provider may not work at all in the vicinity (too far from cel towers).

    This is an easy and affordable option giving points of interest, information and history as you circle the lake. I am glad we used the app as we saw things we might have otherwise missed and learned things about the area that we did not know. For the price, you can’t go wrong!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Lake Tahoe. It is much better than the tour busses. You get to go out on your own pace and take as much time needed for the scenery. We did not get to finish the tour in one day since we started late. The only reason I am giving this a 4 STAR and not a 5 STAR is because we stayed in the North Lake Tahoe area, although you can start the tour in the south or north of the lake, there is no way to go counterclockwise on the tour. We started in the North going clockwise to the south and wanted to finish up by going counterclockwise to the south to avoid going through the beginning of the tour all over again. Unfortunately I called the help number and I was informed there is no way to go counterclockwise, so we had to manually tap on the next number going backwards.
