It was very easy to download the app to my phone. Interesting tidbits were offered along the ride through the park.

We had a problem when we plugged our phone in to charge...the app and our car's navigation system didn't like each other. Once we switch to a power bank, everything worked fine.

Incredible. Did a great job narrating the tour. Directions super clear. Only thing unclear was payment to enter national park. But the scenery was fantastic. Turn by turn directions and enjoyed the commentary!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Yay, I’m so glad to hear that! The scenery at Joshua Tree is undoubtedly fantastic. I love sharing its beauty with everyone who takes our tour! And thank you for giving me the chance to clarify that this is a self-guided audio tour of the park, not an actual entrance ticket to the park. We also have more self-guided audio tours at ActionTourGuide.com for your future travels. Thanks again!

Very easy and informative!

Was very user friendly and taught a lot about the park. The not needing cell service was excellent and it knew exactly where I was. Would definitely recommend for people going to Joshua tree for the first time and by themselves like I did.

Thanks, Brittany! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour — and offline functionality is a must in a park-like Joshua Tree so we’ve made sure it works perfectly! We have more self-guided tours around the country at ActionTourGuide.com. Thanks again!

App needs work

We could not get the audio to work at all. The gps was functioning, but with no audio, it wasn't worth much. 'very disappointing.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hi John, it was most likely a Bluetooth issue (audio playing through your car, but the car volume being off). We have an extensive FAQ on audio issues and are also available on support nearly 24/7 — please do not hesitate to call, chat, or e-mail because we can answer questions like this in a heartbeat! For the next steps now that your trip is over, please shoot us an e-mail with your receipt.

Great way to learn the history of the park! We had fun exploring trails. We chose to go back and do it twice so we could hike trails we missed the first day.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Whoo, I love hearing that! There are tons of great trails to explore at Joshua Tree and I’m thrilled that our tour was able to add so much value to your visit. We have more tours at ActionTourGuide.com for your future travels! Thanks again!

Joshua Tree Drive Tour starts at the visitor center.
Christine_R
, Dec 2021
I really enjoyed that the program didn’t require anything from us. It advanced as we drove through the park. The information really made a beautiful drive have meeting. I encourage people to start with exploring the visitor center before the drive. We started at the one at the north end and it helped explain why Joshua Tree isn’t really a tree.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Great! Thanks for the recommendation as well — always a good idea. I’d love to know what we can do to make this a five star experience in the future. Please feel free to send an e-mail or contact us via ActionTourGuide.com with details. We also have more self-guided tours on our website for your future travels. Thanks again!

Couldn’t access app
Carol_H
, Dec 2021
We were never able to access the app. We downloaded it, as instructed, before we went to the park but when we arrived at the park the app wouldn’t launch. The instructions said we would be able to use it offline once it was downloaded but it didn’t work. A total waste if our money.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hi Carol, the tour works offline once downloaded. I’d love to understand what happened in more detail — please e-mail me with your phone type and any additional details you can remember as soon as possible. Looking forward to hearing from you.
