An audio guide is a guided walk of a popular location. It consists of a tour map, which shows the walk on a street map and the audio files themselves. On the map is also a picture gallery of the sights. The audio files are in MP3 format and you play them on your own equipment. The maps are in pdf format, printable on any printer. The audio guide is intuitive and easy to use. Each tourist attraction is identified by a number. Just select the corresponding number on your MP3 player and press Play.
