In-app audio tours have become more popular in recent years. Instead of following the guide or group (that you hardly know) through an overpopulated museum or other cultural environment, you download the app from Google Play or the Apple store (only once) and you can use the audio guide of your choice right after the purchase.
The audio guides are created by professional tourist guides or local experts, who can even be yourself or one of your friends. These audio guides are also a lot cheaper than a museum guide in person or even audio guide that you can buy at the reception.

The audio guides are GPS-based for their self-guided tours. With the app, you can explore your destination at your own pace while receiving expert narration right in your ear as you navigate your planned route. With immediate support on the touch of your finger you can’t get in troubles but will enjoy fully your new tourist experience. The support team is available to help you with any questions or issues you may have while using the app, even if you are offline and using GPS-based audio guides. You can contact them via chat, phone, or email, and they will be happy to assist you.

Who are the creators of these audio guides?

The creators are experienced professionals in tourism or local experts. Look on the site if you are interested to contribute to the cultural audio archief of these apps. Now they are stil young but they have all chance to expand to giant libraries. Depending at the quality and popularity of your own created guide you can earn a lot of money with plus the support of the community of creators. You will soon feel if you’re good in it when reading the feedback on your tour.

Before you book for a trip you can listen to a preview of what you will download or even now immediately. It contains some general information about the tour you will download but also some important practical info about being in time and how long the line for a museum can be, especially when it is well-known as e.g. the Louvre in Paris, where only 25% of the visitors are French, and the rest foreign.
