|Soundtrack Listing||Sample Tour Stop||Sample Site Photo|
When you arrive at each historical site, GPS Gena, your audio tour narrator, will announce the Stop Number & Site Name, and then your tour guides, Eli and Emilie, will give you a brief history followed by what historical site is coming up as the next stop on The Constitutional Audio Tour.
At the conclusion of the recorded site information for each stop, you will hear an Audio Cue, which is the sound of a bell being rung. The Audio Cue will indicate that the audio portion for that site has concluded. Then GPS Gena will return to give you directions to the next stop, when needed.
NOTE: The Track Numbers, 1 through 36, DO NOT correspond with the Stop Numbers on the Map. This is because The Constitutional Audio Tour includes recorded directions that instruct you how to walk from one stop to the next, and each of those directional segments has their own individual Audio Track Number. Please reference the Map & Soundtrack Details to match the Audio Tracks with their corresponding Stop Numbers on The Constitutional Audio Tour Map.
As a courtesy to other visitors, please turn off The Constitutional Audio Tour if you enter any of the buildings on the tour.
Please be careful crossing the streets, look both ways, cross only at cross-walks and only when you have a green light. We recommend that you only listen to the Audio Tour when you have arrived at your stop and are standing in front of the site. For your safety, DO NOT listen to the Audio Tour or anything else on your Audio Tour Player when you are crossing any street.
NOTE: The instructions can vary depending on numerous factors including your Audio Tour Player, Software, Computer, Computer Operating System, etc. If you need assistance, please email us at help@PhillyMP3.com.
