Profesional tour guides have created the entertaining commentary which is filled with interesting stories about the Dam as well as pointing out interest places you may like to stop along the route. On the drive back from the Dam, we share stories from back when the Mob ran Las Vegas as we tour along the base of Black Mountain with great views of the Strip. The tour then joins the route to Red Rock Canyon and follows a scenic route passing a reproduction old western town and an historic ranch before arriving at Red Rock Canyon.
At Red Rock Canyon, commentary continues playing all along the 13 mile loop drive with many great photo stops for views of the red rocks, Mojave desert landscape and impressive surrounding mountains and canyons. After completing the loop we take the drive back to the Strip via the Springs Preserve, the Premium Outlet Mall and a short tour though Downtown Las Vegas and Fremont Street, just in time for the famous light show. Along this part of the tour, we also share stories about gambling, the odds and how to maximize your chances in the casinos.
Begin this tour by driving south bound along Las Vegas Blvd and the commentary begins as you pass City Center. The map will display your position and upcoming audio points. You can also preview the tour before you arrive, or relive your vacation after you return home.
Once downloaded, the tour requires no data exchange to operate and activate the commentary points, so you will not have any data costs. Just download the app from your Wi-Fi network at home before you leave or use free Wi-Fi at the airport, your hotel or any other location.
** Important: If you are downloading the tour to an iPad it must be a 3G model or higher. If the iPad is wireless only - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function. Any iPhone 3G, 4 or 5 will activate just fine.
This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you drive.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
