Tour Guide Audio SystemWe continually work to improve our walking tour experience. We have now introduced an audio system onto Tour No. 2 - In the footsteps of Sir Edward Burne-Jones. This tour goes through very noisy parts of Birmingham and also visits very quiet locations such as Churches and also the Museum and Art Gallery.How it worksThe guide wears a microphone and transmitter and our guests are given a receiver at the start of the tour. The tour is live, but instead of the guide having to shout in noisy places or whisper in quiet locations we can communicate with everyone as if we are right next to them.We encourage ‘tourists’ to bring their own earphones but can supply a new pair which you keep at the end of the tour (£1 donation).Tour No. 1 and Tour No. 2 when busyWe piloted this in Autumn 2017 when numbers are naturally lower on our tours We have had a favourable response with unexpected benefits including:•Hearing impaired guests have really appreciated the audio system. One person told us they expected to hear very little of the tour, but replacing their hearing aid with our earbuds they had to put up with the whole commentary!•When people wander off we can keep in contact - a family decided to go to a doughnut shop recently but we could keep in touch!•Keen photographers often move away from the tour group to get interesting shots - now they can do this and still hear the full tour commentary.Purchasing the Walking tour systemWe have had enquiries on how you can purchase the walking tour system and components - both from other walking tour operators and also for other uses. We hope to be able to offer these systems for sale in 2018. If this is of interest please email us for further details at: firstname.lastname@example.org
