What the Critics Say

"Soundmap is the 5-star option for iPod toting tourists... the guides are packed with character and atmosphere and the music and sound effects are ladled on with the enthusiasm of a high-gloss television documentary." (Mail on Sunday)
"Soundmap's audio tours offer a very personal perspective... It's a way of becoming immersed in an area, a bit like being in your own film complete with a soundtrack." (Time Out London)
"Walking, iPods and London trivia are the holy trinity as far as Londonist is concerned. The three have reached conjoined perfection in Soundmap." (
"London has such a wealth of history and things to do, that it can become a little bewildering for visitors. Even for seasoned Londoners like myself, it's always surprising how little we actually know about this great city. Soundmap offers a solution." (
