Great value !
Cathy_M, May 2023
Such a great idea to walk around with the voice app explaining what your seeing. Great value and made our walk much more enjoyable and interesting.
Thought the city to the shore to discover the magic!

Never did an audio tour like this before, but highly recommend it. Guided by a native to La Jolla, you learn the little secrets of history and fun. The crescendo was perfect to. This tour was a great experience!
Easy to use Great resource.

Tour was great! Informative and easy to use. The narrator knew her stuff and made it interesting. We loved the fact that we go go at our own pace.

Listening to the tour at our own pace! And getting in a workout at the same time :-). A side note: the only reason I didn't give it a five star , I was having issues with guided tour on my android phone. I had to share earpods with my daughter using her apple phone. Other than that it was an amazing audio guided tour.
Not a tour

This is not a cave tour. This is a just a tour of La Jolla that unfortunately doesn’t work. There was no service down there. Didn’t even get to download the app, the family next to us had it on speaker and two minutes into it it said” thanks for enjoying the tour” very disappointed.
Response from Host, Apr 2021
We’re sorry you weren’t able to use the tour Maria-linda, but it isn’t intended as a cave tour and we’d really appreciate it if you could let us know how you got the impression it is one. This will help us to change the content here to make sure nobody else starts off with the wrong impression. (If you take a look at the tour description, you’ll see that it says, “Take in the feel, allure and romance of this Southern Californian coastal paradise as you stroll the streets of the downtown village of La Jolla with this self-guided GPS tour.“) It’s also a little unfair to say that the tour “doesn’t work”. It does, and the numerous five-star reviews here and internally, within VoiceMap, are evidence of this. But you don’t normally get signal in a cave and we’re guessing this is why you couldn’t download the tour. Is this correct? The tour starts on Prospect Street in front of Eddie V’s restaurant and we recommend downloading the tour before you leave for the starting point. We’ve included this advice on the ticket, under Please Also Note.
