Tourtalk TT 40 Tour Guide System

Tourtalk is a portable wireless tour guide system that helps tour groups overcome background noise and distance from the guide.

A typical system comprises of a transmitter with microphone for the guide and receivers with earphones for the audience.

Examples of use

City Centre

A guided tour of a busy city centre where the guide has to compete with backgound noise and constant distractions. The guide simply speaks at a comfortable level into a wireless Tourtalk transmitter and the tourists each wear an earphone connected to a receiver. The tourists can then adjust their own personal volume to a comfortable level. Not only does the Tourtalk system help to keep the group focused on what is being said, it reduces the strain on the guide’s voice. The guide can also connect an iPod to the transmitter to play a pre-recorded commentary about the sites.

A tour guide takes their customers around a museum but doesn’t want to disturb other people in the vicinity. The guide can whisper into a headband microphone connected to the transmitter. The visitors are each issued with a receiver and earphone. They can then adjust their own volume to hear the guide’s voice. As each transmitter and receiver is supplied with a belt-clip and lanyard, the system can be used hands-free. The system also prevents other people from over hearing what the guide is saying.

Noisy Factory

A company wants to take visitors around their noisy factory. It would be impossible for the company representative to communicate with the visitors as hearing protection is required. The company representative speaks into a microphone connected to a transmitter. The visitors each have a receiver with ear defender/headphones to hear the message.

Field trip

A lecturer needs to communicate to a university class on a field trip. The students are spread out across a large area. The lecturer cannot compete with the wind, ambient noise and distance to speak to the group. As the Tourtalk transmitter has a range of up to 120m, the guide can talk into a microphone without having to shout. The students can clearly hear every word by using a receiver with headphones.

As the Tourtalk system has 40 channels, multiple tours can take place within the same venue at the same time.

An inductive neck loop is available to assist a hearing aid wearer attending a tour.

A wide range of accessories are available for the system to suit each application. Whether the tour is taking place in a cathedral or a noisy workshop, a Tourtalk system can be used to provide a professional experience for your guests.

A range of tour guide system packages are available.
