So great to visualize the exact location of events and see a part of Halifax I don’t normally. Sad stories mixed with courageous ones. Strongly recommend and can’t wait to do the Churches and Cemeteries tour!

I like that the commentary was also included in written form so if reception was wonky, I could always read the information. Also, that I can take my time and wander off the path, coming back when I want.

After a little trouble figuring out how to work the app, I found this to be good value for the money, with interesting facts but not an excessive amount of detail.
