It’s nice to go on our own pace. The only drawback is there’s no rewind button. You need to be able to rewind at least the direction portion for the next segment. Also, if you end up skipping a section because you got lost- you must somehow find this spot before you get to the end. Once you get to the end, you can’t go back to the part you miss.

The audio guide was really good. Much less stressful for mom than walking around with a guidebook & map trying to direct everyone and read out the info all at the same time. We lost connection a few times inside the traboules, so might be better to listen before you go inside (if possible) so that you know how you are meant to exit. I would really recommend and look forward to doing another soon.

Führung war toll, wir würden sie sofort wieder machen. Aber die Technik: wir haben 2 mal gebucht und anfangs nur 1 Handy benutzt. Das zweite konnte dann nicht mehr aktiviert werden. Auch als wir dann eine Position überspringen wollten ging das nicht. ->Man muss immer von vorne anfangen und darf nichts auslassen. Dies sollte flexibler sein
