Wellington audio tour: LitCrawl 2015

About the Tour

A chance to relive the experience of the 2015 LitCrawl, the festival of art, literature and the spoken word.

Your guides are Joel and Ralph of Binge Culture. They'll show you around, and introduce you to the people behind the festival, tell you about the shows, and take you back in time to hear some of the performances, in the venues where they actually happened.

Binge Culture's audio tours are a new arm of their work, their first tour was Te Papa Walkthrough, Levels 4, 5 & 6, and the next one is Enter the New World - an audio adventure in your local supermarket.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on voicemap.me and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.
