What is a tourguide system?
A tourguide system is a lightweight and portable radio system used to aid communication from an individual to a group of people. A typical system comprises a compact microphone transmitter for the presenter and wireless receiver headsets for the listeners.
Where are tourguide systems used?
- Factory and plant tours or in other noisy environments
- Tours in noise sensitive locations e.g. Museums, historical sites indoors and outdoors
- Simultaneous translation for multilingual meetings
- Radio aid system to assist hearing impaired people
- Audio description system to assist visually impaired people
Why hire a system?
Hiring a system can be a cost effective solution for very occasional use. Many clients who hire then decide to purchase a system after experiencing the many benefits it brings to a tour. For regular events, clients normally purchase a system and then hire in additional systems for special events.

Sennheiser 2020-D tour guide systems
Two types of receiver are available for hire-
The unique Stethoset receivers are a one-piece design and are very easy to use. The user simply opens the arms and places the ear bows on the ears to switch the receiver on. They can then select the channel and adjust the volume using the controls on the front of the receiver.
The Bodypack receivers have the same controls as the Stethoset receivers but with a 3.5mm jack socket. These receivers are supplied with lanyards and either single earphones, dual earphones or neckband headphones. Induction loops (to assist hearing aid wearers) are also available.
Two types of transmitter are available for hire-
The bodypack transmitter with headband microphone is ideal for hands-free use. It also has an Aux input to enable an mp3 player to feed the system.
The handheld microphone transmitter can easily be passed between users, making it ideal for multiple presenters or visitor interaction, such as question and answer sessions, interviews, etc.
Up to 6 transmitters (channels) can be used simultaneously. There is no limit to the quantity of receivers used.
