Audio Guide System

An Audio Guide System is used on all tours and allows our lecturers to talk to participants at a normal voice level via a microphone. You are able to listen via a comfortable earpiece and a small receiver. As a result you do not have to stay close to a lecturer, straining to hear. Equally convenient, you can walk at will through a room or building listening from a good distance, or not, should personal preference dictate. In essence, it gives you greater physical independence while remaining part of the group and without having to strain to hear. It is also fully compatible with ‘loop’ system hearing aids.

Comments from previous clients on the benefits of the system include:

   Mr W, London

   ‘I found the Audio Guide a great advantage on the tour’
