Many tourists go to Paris, walk around for 2-3 days, look at the Eiffel Tower and other famous buildings, take a few hundred pictures, and go home, all without learning anything about the city, how the people live in it or its history. Have you ever gone somewhere and asked yourself why that place in particular? What makes it special? What stories does it have to tell? These are the questions that Wikipedia can’t answer. And you say that you want fresh croissants, unique places and exciting adventures? Then why do you need an audio guide at all? We’ll explain.
What’s an audio guide?
The quick definition is that it’s an inexpensive tour that you can take on your own, at your own pace.
You’ve probably used audio guides in museums. You go up to a painting, press the button and listen to some basic information about the piece and the artist, and then move on.
Our audio guide isn’t as boring, but the main idea is the same. You’ll walk around the city and listen to stories, legends and royal rumors. The guide can control itself, so it’ll turn on when you get to your destination.
Along with our Paris guide, we have guides for museums as well, including the Louvre. You’ll learn a lot more about the art and artists.
And these guides aren’t expensive. They’re 20 times cheaper than individual tours and 3-4 times cheaper than the cheapest group tour.
Downloading an audio guide is quite easy, [touringbee:link label:just get the app through this link]. Then you pick the tour you want, and you can download it at home. Once it’s downloaded, it’ll work offline, so you don’t need internet access while you’re walking around. Just put in your headphones and enjoy your walk.

You’ll hear incredible stories
We’ve picked the most interesting and useful stories to share with you. We’ll show you Paris as it is, with happy and sad stories, medieval myths and modern urban legends. Our goal is to tell you how Paris became Paris, and not just show you a set of tourist attractions with articles from encyclopedias.
You can always pause our audio guides to go get coffee or go into a museum. We’ll wait, unlike an expensive individual tour guide. No one will bother you. Skip the things you aren’t interested in, or double back and see your favorite spot again. You’re in charge with our audio guide.
