Pleasantly Surprised

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.

Helpful little App

We spend an enjoyable afternoon driving from Gloucester, MA to Rockport and back. We used the App and it told us little stories and tut bits. It pointed out where we might wish to stop or suggested a walk to a point of interest.

Definitely added value to our trip and we came back after having learnt something new. For less than $5, it’s a bargain!

Self Driving Tour of Cape Ann MA

Stop and view scenery and historic sites at your own pace. Wouldn’t have discovered the sites and
tidbits of history without this audio tour.

Great for (somewhat) locals too

As someone who has been to Rockport many, many times, I still found this an enjoyable and useful addition. You start the drive at the Visitor Center and follow the coast in a circular fashion until you are (almost) back at the start. As you drive, you hear different “pins” - points of interest. These tell you about the history of the region, or some interesting thing that happened there, or about some beaches nearby. The pleasant voice and compelling stories make the whole drive quite enjoyable. If you have any kids, it’ll keep them entertained, which is a huge benefit!

This app offers a fully-guided experience - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn tour of Cap Ann. It’s GPS-enabled and works offline

Great connections to the surrounding landscape.

I enjoyed the commentary and how well it connected with the surrounding landmarks and area. Plenty
of places to get out and see up close.

Social distance fun

The tour was great and wonderful to spend the day out of the heat! The app did have a few issues
when I lost cell service but I would definitely do this tour again!
