This guide was fun and helpful. I like that you can download it before you travel to the islands, then you can plan ahead and get an idea of what days you want to do certain activities. if you follow the guide from the beginning it is very user friendly. but if you pick up in the middle of the tour you will have to use Google maps to get you to one of the checkpoints before the app will start directing (and it does not reroute you if you go awry). would not had as much fun without this guide

Only works in one direction

djcap | June 2022
Great app but a bummer that it only works in one direction. Just a big FYI in case your itinerary isn’t aligned with the way the app thinks you should drive!
