Let Your Ears Be Your Guide


I haven't tried it yet but from what I've heard, audio walking tours are becoming all the rage. Audio tours of cities and museums have been available for years but it hasn't been until recently with the growing popularity of the iPod and other portable MP3 players that these have really taken off. I'm incredibly excited to go on a walking tour soon and now that Rough Guides has a walking tour for Santa Monica I don't really have an excuse. Here's a sampling of some of the great walking tours we have available here on LearnOutLoud:

Sounds for Sights
- Four walking tours of New York City including Lower Manhattan and the Financial District and Times Square: The Crossroads of the World.

Soundwalk - More walking tours of New York City but also one of Paris as well.

Sound Travel - Walking tours of European cities such as London and Venice.

If you're looking to "try before you buy" you may want to take a look at an excellent post put together by Wynn Williamson over at the Stingy Scholar blog. He has a great listing of free walking tours including ones for cities in the U.S. such as San Francisco and cities abroad such as Glasgow.

Check 'em out and happy travels! :)
