Clear, easy to follow tour of Joshua Tree National Park

Great way to see and learn about the park rather than driving round aimlessly. Downloaded everything before I entered the park though it still dropped out a couple of times so was a little worried early on that it wasn’t going to work, but there are plenty of places to pull over or park so was able to restart the audio when this happened without too much hassle. I started from the Joshua Tree Visitor Center, following the tour all the way through to the Cottonwood Visitor Center and then doubled back and went out via the Twentynine Palms entrance listening to those extra stops. I took all the detours except Desert Queen Mine which continued on an unpacked road as I was a little worried about my car getting stuck. The directions are easy to follow but as I was driving solo, didn’t really use the map and just relied on the audio starting automatically as I followed the road around the park - the audio does say to look down at the map at the end of each stop to see where to go next, I would probably remove that instruction as it wasn’t really necessary (or safe as the only person in the car), but I definitely checked the map whenever I parked or reach a stop where I was able to get out of the car and explore so it was a useful addition, even if I didn’t use it as directed by the audio. The additional Palm Springs tour was a great bonus! Would definitely recommend this tour and will look out for others when I next travel.

Thank you so much! I love getting these long reviews— it’s so fantastic to get a detailed insight into the experience. I’m so glad that everything worked. We’ve worked hard to get the tour working properly when there’s no internet to speak off (as it is in 99% of the park) and continue to work on these drops. We’d love to get technical specifics from you (eg your phone type) so we can diagnose it fully — would you mind emailing us via ActionTourGuide.com? So glad you enjoyed the bonus stops in Palm Springs too! We have lots more tours across the country (details on our website) and I hope you get the chance to try them out in the future!

The tour worked just like it said it would. We enjoyed it, like having a guide right in the car with us. It's much better than just driving around randomly.

Thank you so much! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the tour. The “passenger seat expert” effect is exactly what we going for! I hope you get the chance to check out our other self-guided tours (ActionTourGuide.com) as well. Thanks again!

great app
Alan_D

The drive through the park was so nice with the narrative. We enjoyed learning a little more about the park, its history and stories from the past. One suggestion for the app would be, when it suggests 'if you have time, take this side trip' it'd be nice to know how much time it might take. Also, the map didn't show up, but that was not a big problem, just followed the road and signs. Thank you for the app! Great day!!!

Thank you for the review and for the great suggestion! We can definitely add an “approximate hike time” to the side trips in the next tour update. I’m so glad you had a great experience with our tour! We have similar self-guided tours across the country — hope you get the chance to try them out on your future travels (ActionTourGuide.com). Thanks again!!

What we got was ok, but the narrator stopped talking to us about half way through. Tried to restart but that didn't fix it.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Is it possible that the car’s Bluetooth was disconnected after a long stop? That is usually the only time the app runs into issues. We would love more details on what happened. Please contact our support (available nearly 24/7) via our website with your phone model and type so we can reproduce the issue ASAP.

Audio tour didn’t start...

Audio tour didn’t start with the gate we were at (29 Palms)… I’d recommend a recording just like the one from the Joshua Tree city entrance, just in reverse order
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Our tour has only two starting locations (Joshua Tree Visitor Center and Cottonwood Visitor Center), as indicated on the instructions e-mail and in the app. We don’t have a version starting at 29 Palms.
