What Readers Have to Say

“I just completed my homemade DVDs covering the Hawaii trip my husband and I took last May in celebration of our 50th anniversary. That reminded me that I wanted to let Andrew know how great his books and apps are. We have always loved travel and new experiences. My husband is an excellent “tour guide.” We usually have lots of travel sources but who needs them! I used your apps on our iPad almost exclusively. We didn’t really even need other maps! And the ease of finding the info we needed! Wow! I can’t praise your works enough. I just wish you had such for every location we want to go to! THANK YOU SO MUCH! We will definitely recommend your works to everyone.”
