Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed the app while I was in Philly
Almost didn't get this app...
Because of the previous reviews, I almost didn't get this app. I'm so glad I did! It works great and has incredible in-depth material to prepare you for a historical trip! I feel like I have already been there. Can't wait to go and use this app every step of the way!
Useful but needs updating
Most info is good, but dates and times need updating. NCC is no longer open until 6-which meant we were unable to use our tickets, but did get a refund after talking to a mgr, thankfully.
