We all love to travel, we all love to explore new places and most of us do not like traditional guided tours. Why? Because we want to be flexible, we want to decide about the amount of time we would like to spend at a specific location, we want to decide when our break is and if an idea for a detour comes to our mind, we just want to go for it! Sounds not easy but let me give you a simple solution to this.
Besides our City-Guide-App and the Detective-Trail-App, we have developed the Audio-Guide-App. Let your headset be your private guide. With the Audio-Guide-App,you are able to walk from one beautiful spot to another, listening to the audio description of the location you just reached. Our City Managers, who are locals in the cities available on MyCityHighlight, prepared the tours and are happy to show you in a nutshell the best spots of their cities. The app offers a coupleof great features: If you don’t want to listen, you can just read the description on your phone screen and the other way around. GPS will always know where you are, so you can easily find yourself around and see where the next interesting landmark is located. You will decide yourself when you want to take the tour, how much time it will take, how many breaks you will have and how many times you will get off the track and come back to it.
Doesn’t it sound amazing? It is simply like being your own guide, with a small difference…you did not spend hours to prepare for this tour. And the best thing, a tourthat once was purchased will stay available in your app for an unlimited length. So even if you are already back home with all the pictures and memories, you can just listen to the audio tour once again. Maybe there was something interesting you would like to get back to? You don’t need to search for it, it is in your hand. Don’t be afraid about your devices’ battery life, MyCityHighlight had this in mind when developing the Audio-Guide-App. To avoid major battery consumption, you are able to use the app in an offline mode. So, turn off the internetand explore the city, stay digital but disconnect from messages, calls and snaps that are surrounding you on a daily basis.
How does a walking tour with our Audio-Guide-App works?
To start with, just like with every other app, you need to download it. Answering your next question, yes, it is available for your phone system. It works both, with iOS and Android. Once on your phone, you will be able to check the list with available cities and tours. Find the city you are in and buy the tour. Most of the tours will take you for 2 hours to the most beautiful landmarks of the city. Next step is simple, get out there and turn play once you get to the first highlight of this tour. Almost forgot! The tours are available in English and German, switch into the language you would like to listen to and you are ready to go.
Let me give you a little sneak peek of the Audio Guides by MyCityHighlight:
