Narrated Driving Tour Apps by GuideAlong
Listen to an entertaining guide that automatically tells you stories about where you are while you drive.
As you explore Grand Canyon National Park or enjoy nearby scenic road trips to places such as Sedona, Ariz., chances are you’re missing so many incredible stories and facts just below the surface. What you need is a guide in your passenger seat. The GuideAlong (previously GyPSy Guide) App solves that problem.
The narrated driving tour app uses your phone’s location to automatically play entertaining and informative commentary about behind-the-scenes stories, historical events and notable geologic formations as you drive. In doing so, it tells you about upcoming sights, so you have time to decide if you want to stop. Because the app uses GPS signal, not cell towers, no service or WiFi is required while touring.
On the Grand Canyon’s South Rim you’ll learn about famed architect Mary Colter who designed a number of iconic buildings along the rim, excelling in a traditionally male-dominated world.
“It’d be such a shame if you didn’t know her story as you passed the Bright Angel Lodge,” Rick Bulich of GuideAlong muses. “It adds a whole extra dimension to your sightseeing experience.”
In Sedona, the app will make sure you don’t miss stops like the best rock formations and magical vortexes – mysterious earth-energy centers.
