Whilst Easter of 2021 is not exactly cracking up (get it?!) to be the one we’d all been hoping for, we still have to answer the same questions.. How do you keep the kids entertained? Well we’re here to give you a unique idea, with helpful tips and tricks to ensure not only the kids, but you too, have an egg-cellent time on a socially distanced family adventure led by Vox City.
Vox City Guides are a great way for you and your family to get out of the house, have some fun, take in the fresh air and also learn some fun and interesting facts about your local area along the way too. After purchasing one of our guides, your mobile device will transform into the ultimate travel companion ready to lead you on your fact finding adventure. Use the app to navigate your way around the city, locating hidden treasures, famous landmarks, and even the best places to stop and get a drink (covid rules permitting). As you and the crew wander around and approach one of our many points of interest you can gather round and have a listen to our commentary. Using our audio guide functionality, our local experts will excite your ears with fun facts and anecdotes, history and stories that you’ll hold onto forever.

Our Tips and Tricks for a successful day of sightseeing adventure:
1. Stay Safe
Our guides make it easy to socially distance and adhere to local restrictions. Be mindful that you may need to come back to a point of interest later in the day if you find it becomes busy in that area. Luckily, there’s no time restrictions with our self-guided tours!
2. Pack Supplies
Whilst rules and restrictions vary from city to city, you may find that a lot of businesses are still closed, that’s why we encourage you to pack plenty of drinks and snacks for the family.
3. Plan Ahead
You can start using our app from the moment you receive your QR code, so why not get the family together and spend the evening before planning your route and plotting the points of interest you want to see and hear about the most. Build up that excitement for the next day!
4. Make sure your phone is fully charged
Once you have downloaded your map, you can use our app without data so we advise doing this before you leave. It’s also worth noting that if you plan to head out for a full day of exploring, you’ll want to make sure you leave with a fully charged phone.
5. Take it in turns to lead
The leader of the pack is an important role, so it’s only right that the helm is passed fairly between the gang.
So there you have it, a unique, safe and exciting way to explore your local area as a family. You can purchase your guide here.
