LiveTours is designed to get the best guided tours experience, even when there is no or low quality Internet available. Therefore LiveTours uses a specific high quality wi-fi travel router that is carried along by the tour guide. (It weighs <100g and fits easily in your pocket.) The tour guests are connected to the wi-fi of their guide.
We avoid interference by using wi-fi, designed to deal with this problem by protocol and design.
The audio is distributed as an audio-stream over a wi-fi connection between the smartphone of the tour guide and the smartphone of your guest.
All you have to do is make sure the guests are connected to the same (local offline) wi-fi network of the tour guide.
LiveTours warrants a maximal latency (sound delay) of approximately 100ms on Apple iPhones and 500ms – 700ms on Android smartphones (depending on model).
You can easily use LiveTours for groups up to 40 tour guests. For bigger groups please contact us.
Distance between the tour guide and the tour guests up to 25 meter. Groups can spread over a total distance of 50 meter with the tour guide in the middle.
If the distance between the tour guide and a guest extends the 25 meter, glitches might occasionally occur. However the LiveTours app will automatically reconnect when the tour guest gets within 25 meter from the tour guide again. When bigger distances are required, please contact us.
LiveTours works even if the guide is in a different room than the guests. (Hidden) steel constructions might occasionally cause glitches. However the LiveTours app will automatically reconnect.
