Virtual Guided Tour of Takayama

Virtual Guided Tour of Takayama

star-5
I created the tours online LIVE as an active response towards what is happening all around the world in this period. But also for who cannot effort to travel for any reason. My contribution to help my fellow guides, the tourism and the tours company to keep up our business. Not everybody is allowed to walk around or even go outside in some countries so, I thought what if I am able to accompany my clients on tours, but with a video chat instead! So one of the solutions of my tours online LIVE is that is going to be cheaper than regular tours! Why? Because you are going to be at home, while I am going to guide you into your dreams! Once the payment has been confirmed from the Amico del solevante, and your "tour online LIVE" date is up, you just make a video chat with: 1) A pair of headphones with microphone 2) A smartphone or personal computer / laptop 3) One of the apps (Whatzapp, Line, Facetime or Skype only) Make sure that the internet connectionand video quality works! Thats it! *
