Guided tours of Paris are a great way to get a glimpse of some of the most well-known tourist locations in the city. You can drive around a range of landmarks and tick off must-see sights all in one afternoon. It is perfect for those with limited time in the city. But, there is only so much you can see and learn from a traditional tour. You might get a bit of historical information and a brief glimpse at the exterior of a building and that is it.
Paris City Vision wants to change all that with its new augmented reality tours.
The augmented reality tour on the new Paris City Vision buses takes tourists on a more in-depth journey with greater access to attractions than ever before. It all lies within the HistoPads at the seats on the bus. These clever devices are GPS-localised tablets that offer more media and information than your average audio tour. The GPS system syncs up the table to the location to provide slideshows and interactive maps inside some of the buildings. Now you can see some of the artwork in the galleries, peer into Notre-Dame and learn more about the Eiffel Tower, all from the comfort of the coach. There are even 3D reconstructions of some of the sites to help travellers step back in time.
The result of these 1.5-hour tours is a much greater sense of the history of Paris and the culture within the landmarks. The tour is more than a way to tick sights off of a checklist and is an experience that should engage the whole family. Furthermore, you can choose from 10 different languages so there are no restrictions for foreign visitors. If you would like to take a closer look at Paris, book your place on one of these Paris City Vision augmented reality tours.
