  • Surprisingly Disappointed

    Candidly, I ran into some issues with this App. The best part was, Greg, the Founder, reached out directly and resolved the problem. How often does that happen these days? That alone is worth a "5 Star" rating.
  • Outstanding!

    While visiting Yellowstone National Park, I happened upon this app as a potential resource for touring the park. Both my husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed the guide. We saw highlights that we would have never seen and learned historical facts about the park as we toured. We can't wait to use the app as we travel to our next destination. We highly recommend this product!
  • Amazing travel app!

    I'd give this 6 stars if I could. I downloaded it before our trip to Yellowstone, since it was spur of the moment and did little research in advance. This app made our day go so easily - great information, recommendations of sights to skip and those that were must see. Helped us get the most out of a short trip!
  • The Best Guide!

    Love it! The Badlands, Custer NP, Yellowstone, Glacier so far - in May 2017. Heading now, August, 2017 to Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, & Bridges. Then the solar eclipse so will turn on depending on our route to WY.

    A friend told me about Just Ahead shortly before we were to leave for Yellowstone. I quickly tried the trial, and was very impressed. With that, I bought a subscription as we were going to the Grand Tetons as well. I started the app as we were leaving to go to the park, where it did a great job of pointing out things that we would have otherwise missed, as well as some points that were not worth the time. All 4 (two couples) were really impressed with the quality and quantity of information provided. It really was like having a personal tour guide in the car with us, for a fraction of the price. We used it the entire week we were there. The only downside is the limited areas that it covers, it those are documented very well in the free trial. I will definitely buy another subscription if we visit another covered park next year.
  • Best app ever for traveling!

    I LOVE this app!! Have used it on many National Park tours!! Very helpful tips! It is as if you have your very own tour guide sitting in the car with you!! One suggestion on the Kings Canyon is to add Grizzly Falls! I also like how you can now rent them for a year as opposed to purchasing! Once you are through with the American National Parks, perhaps you could add Canadian Parks--Banff, Jasper, etc!!!!!!!!
  • Great Tour Guide !

    My family thoroughly enjoyed Just Ahead on our recent trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. The app worked great and doesn't even need connection after the initial download. My sister and I have been to Yellowstone several times growing up but on our first visit with our children and extended family I was looking for something that could give me tips and explanations while we were traveling through the sites. I stumbled upon Just Ahead and bought a subscription to get both parks at one. We all agree that it was worth the $29.99 for the subscription. My sister and I learned so much using the app that we never knew before trying to use guide books and pamphlets. One of the best is the guides tips on little known pull outs and overlooks. We followed the first one to Yellowstone Lake overlook coming down from the East Gate and the view was spectacular. My kids quickly began to quite down when the tour guide started another story and eagerly looked up from their devices and out the window, I know amazing! They eventually stoped their devises on the first day while the tour guide kept pointing out little views and snippets of knowledge and only wanted them after we returned to Cody! Overall we are very happy with Just Ahead and are looking forward to planing other national park trips that are covered with the guides.
  • Wonderful app! Worth every penny.

    We used the guides for Badlands, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone. This is an awesome audio tour guide. So informative with interesting information, great suggestions and directions. We loved it! When we arrived in Glacier and there was no guide for it out yet, we really missed having the guide. An invaluable addition to our trip and so easy to use and play through the car speakers.
  • Wish I knew about this sooner!

    I have absolutely loved exploring our national parks no matter how haphazardly my plans have been put together, but the best trips are always the ones where I've done my homework ahead of time. Unfortunately I don't always get to the parks during visitor center operating hours, so I miss out on some great opportunities simply because I didn't know about them. But now I have Just Ahead! I was so, so excited when the audio first cued on and started telling me about what I was driving through in Death Valley. I was able to go confidently exploring, even in the middle of the night, and I ended up doing way more than I planned to because Just Ahead did such a great job describing things and getting me excited. I absolutely love this app and can't wait to hit another park ASAP.
