DC Tours Launches New Belfast Audio Tour App
Belfast-based walking tour company DC Tours has launched a new app called "DC Tours Belfast" that will feature a series of self-guided audio tours of Belfast.
The app's first self-guided audio tour, which is available now, is named "West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More", and features pictures, audio and video of, and historical information about, over 30 locations around the Falls and Shankill districts of Belfast, as well as a GPS mapping system.
A Chance To Explore Belfast While Maintaining Social Distancing
In a statement published on Tourism NI's wesbite, DC Tours owner Mark Wylie said, "We run scheduled and private walking tours every day in Belfast city centre, but we know some guests may not feel comfortable joining a tour with other people. Our self-guided tours give people the chance to explore the city and learn about our history from an expert guide while maintaining social distancing."
Speaking about the "West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More" tour, Wylie said, "Our self-guided west Belfast tour is an in-depth overview of the history of the Troubles in west Belfast. It perfectly complements 'A History of Terror', our guided city centre walking tour.
"You don't even need to be at the sites to enjoy the tour, as the app allows you to explore through the map and learn about the area from the comfort of your own home too."
First Of Many
According to Wylie, the "West Belfast: Peacewalls, Murals and More" tour is the first of many tours planned for app, including a "Best of Belfast" city trail, which will be launched in late September.
Wylie added, "With our self-guided tours, you can start and finish the tour at any time and any location you want. You can explore the city in a private group or by yourself, without the need for a guide or being with other travellers. And you can pause the tour at any point if you want to explore, get a bite to eat or just take a break and enjoy your surroundings."
