August 01, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Santa Clara, California Geogad, Inc. today introduced Geogad Mobile Tours, which are free MP3-based audio and image self-guided walking tours that are virtual tour guides for busy, independent travelers. These tours allow travelers to optimize their vacation budgets by giving them free detailed local tour information like what they would get from a local tour guide. Geogad Mobile Tours optimize a traveler's limited vacation time by combining relevant local history and information with the traveler's location in a fun, non-stressful way on the traveler's schedule and at his pace. Travelers can download Geogad Mobile Tours for free from the Geogad website at to their favorite mobile MP3 player, whether it is on a cell phone, a portable music player, or a portable computer. Geogad Mobile Tours last from one to several hours, depending on the tour and on the number and length of breaks that the traveler takes.

Geogad Mobile Tours explain how the specific combination of geography, people, and history mixed to create a unique city. The tours consist of spoken word descriptions and photos of well-known and not so well-known places. The tour photos include maps to direct the traveler from one tour location to the next. Each tour section begins with a photo of the tour location so that travelers can double-check their positions. The tour photos can also focus on small, yet interesting, details that can make the tour truly memorable but might be missed by a busy traveler if not pointed out by a guide. These photos can also highlight how the city has changed over the years by showing old photos of the tour locations and the historical people who shaped them.

Geogad Mobile Tours currently feature Union Square of San Francisco, the French Quarter of New Orleans and Downtown Vancouver and Gastown, British Columbia. More tours for cities in the United States and abroad will be available in the future.
