I was asked to drive some visitors around Cape Ann – – where I live – – and show them the sites. But they wanted to know all the interesting historical details that I did not necessarily know. I found this app mentioned on TripAdvisor; downloaded it and bought the Cape Ann self-guided tour. It was exactly what I needed. I used the audible version, it played across my Bluetooth speaker as we drove around to the different sites, and gave us all those little historical tidbits that made them happy. Great idea and worked well.
