Audio Travel guides bring the world brilliantly to life

My audio travel guides are always recorded on location. You’ll hear the background sounds of great cities – their markets, their echoing cathedrals, their bustling squares and hectic river traffic  – the very heart of their busy, daily lives.

CitySounds.Travel guide gives you all the evocative sounds, the interviews and the insights into what makes a destination tick.

Hear the church bells ring out over Florence … hear a Jamaican humming bird feed from your hand … how Marrakesh comes alive at night in Djem el Fnaa … how the world’s first Ghetto got its name. Many audio guides from other websites are made by people simply re-writing guidebooks and recording the dreary words in boring voices in their bedroom. That’s NOT how we do it at CitySounds.Travel. Tim is a hugely successful BBC broadcaster.

Our audio travel guides are the liveliest anywhere and we have five international awards to prove it!

Look at the hundreds of guides on our “country” pages. There are more than fifty short “clips” of sample audio for you to hear and to get an idea of our lively, informative and sometimes amusing content.
