Pin It

We’ve just received word that the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau and locally-based BarZ Adventures have teamed up to offer a new GPS tour of the city as well as an American Sign Language tour.

GPS Tour: The GPS Ranger™introduces visitors to Austin’s historical and cultural attractions with a walking tour piloted by Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. The audio and video tour, which is narrated by KXAN News Anchor Michelle Valles, guides visitors to more than two dozen points of interest.

How does it work? As you approach each point of interest, the GPS Ranger™ triggers location-based content, telling the story of the site or attraction using both audio and video. Attractions highlighted on the tour include the Texas Capitol, Sixth Street, Zilker Park, St. Mary’s Cathedral, Moonlight Towers and the Ann Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, along with the city’s famed bats. Events and local flair are also featured with narration on the “Keep Austin Weird” campaign, O. Henry Pun-Off, Spamarama and more.

Price: Tour cost $11.95 each. They are available at the Austin Visitor Center at 209 E. Sixth Street. One lightweight handheld device with a 4-inch screen can be shared by several people.

Sign Language Tour: The Austin tour is also the first GPS tour to also be made available in American Sign Language. Working with Communication Service for the Deaf, Inc. (CSD), a national private nonprofit agency providing services to the deaf, hard of hearing and individuals with speech disabilities, Austin CVB and BarZ Adventures adapted the tour to make it accessible to the deaf.
