Why Tour With Us
Stop 1 : Cape Cod Visitor Center
Stop 33 : Marconi Station
We started the App as we were leaving the visitor center and used it as our in person guide. Besides not missing the must see spots, we also learnt a lot about the history of the area. It kept the kids entertained and they got to learn about the early settlers too!
Cape guided tour
Easy to use, loved the historical background and sites picked to get a better overview and feel of the Cape. We did it on a day where the motivation to move was low, it energized us, brought conversations back, it was a fun way to drive and discover the Cape
Good product. Kids listen in a car. Narrator is pleasant. I could not figure out how to play it if you drive backwards, that’d be nice as we did not start exactly at the “beginning “.
Well Worth It!
Overall, this was a great experience! So much interesting history. Well worth the price.
Our only challenges, honestly had more to do with the congested and confusing traffic patterns in Provincetown and the sheer number of pedestrians on some of the streets. There was some lag time in the GPS that caused us to miss one or two turns, but we managed to hit all the points.
We also found that you do have to keep an eye on the map feature, as there were a couple of turns that weren’t spoken (especially toward the end), but we may have messed something up when we missed a turn?). But these were minor issues.
We loved all the history and the guide’s fair representation of the initial impact on indigenous peoples.
The app was excellent at knowing where we were.
The instructions were clear as to how to get back to the next point if we got lost (hit a button that takes you to Google Maps, which directs you back to the route).
There’s even a planned bathroom break!
Ignore the reviews about doing this yourself and saving money. It would take hours to put this together in such a concise and informative way.
DO allow most of the day for this if you plan to stop at many of the optional detours (which we recommend).
Best Way to see the Cape!
This is such an AMAZING way to tour the Cape! We were originally weary about purchasing it because of some of the reviews about driving in circles, but we had no issues and we did the entire tour. I would chalk those reviews up to user-error or not being smartphone savvy. This tour takes you to all the best places and is very informative. We enjoyed it so much we booked another one nearby in RI. We plan to look for these driving tours every time we travel now. We did this tour as we drove from Hyannis to P-Town for the day and it was excellent. HIGHLY RECOMEND!
Great for handicap accessible touring
The tour allowed us to go at our own pace which is wonderful when you have issues walking. We were able to thoroughly enjoy ourselves by taking the extra time to spend on some of the optional detours.
This was an awesome way explore Cape Cod. We loved that we could tour the Cape at our own pace. I’m excited to plan our next self guided tour in the near future.
Fun way to learn local history
We had a great time with this tour. The main stops worked well by following the prompts and we enjoyed the stories told in between stops. We took two days to do this by stopping and exploring all of the trails and side trips. We needed one person to be the navigator and control the app while the driver focused on the road. We followed the route and searched for extra information in areas we wanted to learn more about. We were staying on the Cape for a week so took a leisurely tour. Found my ancestor’s name was on the First Encounter plaque.
Road trip with mom
Wanted to spend a few days with mom and get her out of the house. With Covid she had been home forever and hasn’t really gotten out. After getting vaccinated I wanted to do something with her do I booked an overnight stay in Provincetown. I figured we could spend one day driving down and stopping along the way wherever we wanted and spend the night in Ptown and make our way back home to Boston the next day. I found this tour and thought it would be perfect. It was! I’ve been on the Cape many times and this took us to a few new spots I’ve never been but also gave us history on the places we’ve been a few times and just never knew.
Kept us entertained for the day. I really enjoyed it.
Fun trip through Cape Cod
Fun trip through Cape Cod. The kids especially loved the Pilgrim stories. A little cold in the winter (don’t recommend all of the detours/trails) but we will be back in the summer and try them out. I would only suggest to the tour company that the tour begin at the Bourne Bridge end of Route 6 instead of in Hyannis.
We loved driving up the Cape learning about so much history. The variety of sites and great info made the trip enjoyable.
We had a Great time!! Very informative and easy to use. Prepare for a lot of traffic on the Cape, though
The weekend weather is miserable. This tour was a fun way to enjoy Cape Cod when beach time was not an option. Totally worth the price, we had a fun day exploring the Cape with this tour.
Fun and informative tour
Great tour! This tour was very informative and fun. It has a lot of flexibility to take a more direct route or stop/turn off the main road more frequently. Only downside is that you can’t go even slightly over the speed limit or you’ll move faster than the audio portion.
