Frequently Ask Questions

What is a self-guided tour?

A self-guided tour is a type of tour where visitors explore a destination on their own using an audio guide or a map. Unlike a guided tour, visitors are not led by a tour guide and are free to choose their own pace and explore the sights that interest them the most. Self-guided tours offer more flexibility and freedom to visitors. They are a popular option for those who prefer to explore a destination independently.

Is a Walking Tour suitable for all ages?

The walking tour is suitable for all ages, but keep in mind that it involves a fair amount of walking and standing, so participants should be able to walk for at least 2 hours. Additionally, wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing a water bottle can help ensure that you're comfortable throughout the tour.

What is a Multilingual Audio tour?

A multilingual audio tour is a type of tour that provides visitors with audio guides in multiple languages. Visitors can use headphones to listen to the audio guide as they explore a destination, with the audio guide providing information about the sights, history, and culture of the area. The audio guides are typically pre-recorded and offer visitors the option to choose their preferred language.

Review summary

Value for money



I took the Hagia Sophia Self Guided Digital Audio Tour and I have to say that it was a fantastic experience. The audio tour provided me with helpful information and insight into this stunning landmark. It was really easy to use, the audio tour also allowed me to pause or rewind the tour if I needed to review something from it, which I really appreciated. 



Molto buono e molto interessante. Unica cosa è un po' difficile da usare e fare foto con il cellulare in contemporanea. Consiglio tantissimo
