Full description

Get to know the sheer beauty and grandeur of Horseshoe Bend canyon at your own pace with your friends or family. Tune in to your in-app audio tour to learn about the history of this magical location as you walk along. Later, embark on a self-guided driving tour of Page and learn all about this fascinating town.

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal tour guide, audio tour, and map all in one. Begin your journey in the parking area for Horseshoe Bend. From there, all you need to do is follow the quarter-mile path toward the canyon itself. Along the way, hear about the early days of the mighty Colorado River, when it was little more than a meandering river on a floodplain. As you walk, you’ll find out how that floodplain transformed into the soaring plateau known today.

Pick up insights into the area’s human history as well, like how it passed from the Navajo to the hands of the US Government. Finally, arrive at Horseshoe Bend itself, where multiple viewing platforms offer jaw-dropping views of this unique landmark. Don’t forget to take plenty of pictures.

Your tour of Horseshoe Bend concludes here. Also included with your tour is a driving tour of Page, the town where Horseshoe Bend is located. This tour begins at the Glen Canyon Dam Overlook, where you can get phenomenal views of the dam which was the reason for the town’s existence. From there, head north to a collection of breathtaking trails full of great desert vistas. Then it’s on to the dam itself, where you’ll have the opportunity to get out of your car and actually walk over the immense structure. Head then to Wahweap Overlook, offering a stunning look across Lake Powell. Your tour concludes here.

I was expecting it to talk when. I was just walking the trail. It didn’t. Idea is good but was not real easy to use or understand how it worked.
