Walk Talk Tours has teamed up with Sploro, the New Jersey based multi-media company to launch its self guided walking tour as iPhone Applications. Users can now download the Ride & Stride tour from Sploro in the Apps store. The 2 hour tour starts with a ride on an iconic Routemaster bus from Trafalgar Square to St Paul’s Cathedral, and continues with a stroll across the Millennium Bridge to Tate Modern and the South bank. The tour then explores the many sights en route to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, where it finishes. The interesting and informative 45 minute commentary is accompanied by good quality images, clear directions and a geo coded map ensuring that 3G users will never get lost.
Commenting on the development, Walk Talk Tours co-founder Phil Nash said: “We are delighted with the iPhone format for our tours and the popular London Palace Trail is already proving a hit with iPhone users. We are now preparing our other London and British Tours for release from the Sploro application in the next few weeks. This will also include the French, German and Spanish versions of our London Tours”
The tours cost $8.99 or £5.49 in the Apps store – but Ride & Stride is free until 31st May 2010 download it now and use it later!
All London, Edinburgh, York, Chester and Manchester walk talk tours can be downloaded in MP3 format from http://www.walktalktour.com/
