DK is launching an audio app this month providing free walking tours of "two of the most visited cities in the world" - London and New York.
The audio app will exclusively accompany its 2017 travel guides to London and New York, featuring five free audio walking tours that can downloaded and used in tandem with the printed book.
It intersperses suggested places to visit with historical facts on the local area, and pub, hotel and restaurant recommendations while promising to reveal both "hidden gems" as well as world-renowned sites. The app also has unlimited downloads, so it can be used by a solo traveller or with family and friends. The link to download the audio app is listed in the book and the walks are also available offline so listeners aren't inhibited by internet access.
The DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: London 2017 comprises photography, illustrations, floorplans and detailed descriptions, with coverage including the British Museum and Buckingham Palace. The DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: New York City 2017 is a "uniquely visual guide" and includes expanded coverage of Manhatten and a new chapter on Brooklyn, as well as illustrations and 3D artwork and public transport maps. Both come with the exclusive audio app, publishing on 14th October 2016, priced £14.99.
