Don’t you see me?

I gave 4/5 stars due to the direction segment of the tour. You can easily see yourself as the moving blue circle yet the directions are way ahead of you. At one point we had to turn right onto a street but it failed to mention the right turn prior. It starts narrating before your arrival so the picture you are looking at is not the correct mansion at times. The site is easily backed up or repeated and the mansion lies ahead!!The instructions are to drive slowly so it should have a better idea where you are. Especially with technology today. I did enjoy doing things at my own pace. Stopping and stretching. Pausing for a longer look. But especially going on a tour when I wanted to tour. Not when someone else told me tour times. Don’t forget to use the gold button on the bottom of the screen for additional information!!!

So glad you enjoyed the tour! Thank you for the detailed feedback! We intentionally set up the pins (audios and images) to start slightly before the mansion since we wanted people to be prepared for what to look for. But it’s good to know that some of these pins start too early so we will take a look at adjusting their locations!

The details of each stop were very good. The only complaint I have is that the GPS was off at times.

This is an amazing way to tour at your own pace and be socially distant in your own car! Loved it! The app automatically senses where you are and clicks onto the next destination as you approach it

It was an excellent trip, and we enjoyed it a lot. Being able to sit in our own car and decide where to stop and look more at what we are interested in made a huge difference to us, especially during this pandemic.

It was a great experience, and spectacular views. However we started near 3 pm and we didn’t have access to see the marble house. We stopped at The Breakers, it was amazing!

A perfect tour during a pandemic and heat wave. Enjoyed hearing the history of the area, in the comfort of our conditioned car and discovered beautiful quiet beaches along the way. We stopped at several to enjoy the scenery and ocean breezes. Highly recommend!

The audio was good but difficult to follow the map as outlined on the GPS. It could have been better

Thanks for letting us know! What was the most difficult part of the map? We'd love to know what to fix up! We'd also like to offer our Newport Cliff Walk tour for free to make up for your experience. (It's just a straight line, so no map trouble to worry about!). Please contact us via email
