Touring with my own phase. - Being on top of the Memorial Bridge and up and close at Hoover Dam. I was trying to imagine how it was like being in the movies Superman and Transformers.

Great tour guide - There were 2 Las Vegas options so I chose Tropicana but I ended up in Harley Davidson so I guess please update info. I then checked the paperwork and it did not mention Tropicana, only Bellagio and Arizona. So if that was a checkpoint, not good. There should not have been a route for Tropicana. So I drove to Bellagio and there was no parking space to get ready and it was quite busy and I did not want to be a burden. I also thought that maybe someone would be there to give final instructions or maybe a pep talk to say enjoy yourself (they did that in Alaska). So everyone was nice, no honking, the route did not talk and I could not see the car in the map. So I made a guess and it was right because the app started talking. The problem then, is that it gives you turn instructions when it is too late, not enough time to change lanes safely. I made one mistake because I am not familiar with Las Vegas but aside from that, it was amazing. I love the information, the speaker, even the pictures chosen. I made it to Hoover Dam with pleasure. I lost it again when I decided to drive all the way to the end because it did not talk. But on the way back from Arizona, it started to talk about going to the Arizona side. That's the problem. I thought it would pick up that I was going the other way (Sesame Street). I will still buy other tours. I visit LV everyone 6 months or so, you'll hear from me again. I could try Arizona since I was there on a cowboy ranch. Could you make sure that I can see the car in the map like using a different color for the moving dot? Even if you use a car as an avatar, it needs to have a different color from the road on the map.
