New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2006
Effective immediately, the Sounds for Sights self-guided audio tour of Rockefeller Center is being offered as a free download from the company’s website. The audio tour leads the listener through the well-known New York City area, touching on popular spots, such as Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, the Atlas Statue, Rockefeller Center Ice Rink, and Radio City Music Hall. It is available from the company’s website at http://www.soundsforsights.com, and will be used to gauge consumer interest and improve future content.
“Offering this free tour will allow us to increase our customer base and accumulate valuable feedback that will be used to further improve the audio tour experience,” said David Duran, one of the company’s owners. David and his partner have cultivated Sounds for Sights for more than a year and see a significant future for the growing audio tour industry. “The popularity of audio content for both education and entertainment continues to grow at a rapid pace. Audio walking tours are a logical next step, and provide a refreshing alternative to other options.”
Sounds for Sights utilizes the convenience of lightweight, portable MP3 players like the iPod to transcend traditional guided walking tours and provide consumers the freedom to explore an area on their own time and at their own pace. Where traditional tours fall short, portable audio tours excel: they don’t require advanced scheduling, can be started, stopped, or paused at anytime, and all while allowing the listener to explore the area unencumbered by maps, brochures, and other printed guides.
With the increasing quantity of downloadable content available online, Sounds for Sights has dedicated itself to providing an exceptional product at an affordable price. Each walking tour is professionally produced and carefully crafted to immerse the listener in an experience full of fascinating stories, personal accounts, and a bit of history.
