Decided to take a trip to Joshua Tree during my time in LA. I booked this self driving audio tour so we could get information about the park as we drove. We really enjoyed it. We were able to go at our own pace, explore when we wanted and learned a lot.

Easy navigation

Cool narration. Park was very clean and navigation easy to follow. Not too many people on the road or at the attractions. Stops at each attraction was optional, do it didn't last as long as estimated. We made it through in just under 2 hours.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Thanks so much! I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the narrations — and that you got a nearly-empty park, which is a real treat! I’d love to know what we can improve so that this becomes a five-star experience in the future. And please feel free to check out our other self-guided tours across the country at ActionTourGuide.com. Thank you!

Very poor audio tour
Thomas_L

Audio was off and on. Actually 95 % off and 5% on. Every time I stopped and re-started to play, audio didn't work. After half an hour of trying, I gave up and used the free map from the visiting center. My cell is iphone.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Thanks for the feedback, Thomas. Issues like this are pretty rare, especially audio not working. Possibly the car’s Bluetooth didn’t work. We do have 24/7 support for issues like this as well as an extensive FAQ/Help on the app. Nevertheless, we’d love to offer you a solution for this experience — please contact us to get the process started.

Easy to download the app and easy to use inside the park-where there’s no cell service. Easy to stop and start the app. Great information about the geology and history of the park.

It was awesome to get the history and have some background information on different areas of the park. Without the guide we would have missed a lot of the sites!

Clear, easy to follow tour of Joshua Tree National Park
Wendy_H

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!
