Markham, Ontario, Canada, 2010/06/15 - Gray Line New Zealand, a division of Johnston’s Group Ltd, introduces new GPS audio tours of New Zealand in English, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin, breaking down language barriers for foreign language travelers - GrayLine.co.nz.
Gray Line New Zealand, a division of Johnston’s Group Ltd, introduces multilingual GPS triggered audio tours in multiple languages simultaneously on its sightseeing tours of New Zealand’s South Island. These sightseeing tours enhance passenger experiences by providing location specific stories shared by professional narrators, connecting passengers to the people, places and events that have shaped New Zealand’s young and vibrant history.
GPS sightseeing experiences offer passengers an immersive touring experience from either Christchurch to Queenstown or the reverse trip, Queenstown to Christchurch against spectacular views of the Southern Alps and a visit to Mount Cook, one of the most dramatic alpine and glacier sceneries in the world. Passengers are immersed in the fascinating history, culture, and ecology of the youngest country on earth – and the last major landmass to be discovered.
By providing sightseeing tours in English, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin, Gray Line New Zealand breaks down language barriers with fun, entertaining, and educational audio tours on its luxury motor coaches. Passengers use small wireless receivers and headsets for more meaningful and memorable vacation experiences.
Additional GPS tours include Queenstown to the World Heritage Fiordland National Park and the awe-inspiring panoramas of Milford Sound, world famous for its breathtaking scenery, unique nature and wildlife, and lush rainforests.
“We’re providing high quality passenger entertainment while meeting the needs of foreign language travelers”, said John Ellis, South Island Manager, Gray Line New Zealand, “The portability of our GPS Tour Systems means our passengers will always receive the very best of what New Zealand has to offer. By opening our doors to foreign language markets and travelers, we’re committed to providing world-class sightseeing experiences in some of the most spectacular natural locations in the world.”
“AudioConexus is excited to be working with Gray Line New Zealand. We’re proud to be offering a new kind of sightseeing experience in New Zealand”, said Jonathan Stanley, President and CEO, AudioConexus Inc. “Gray Line New Zealand’s innovative approach to servicing their customers at key points of interest along their touring routes enhances passenger experiences and transforms their buses into a theatrical experience for everyone. I was amazed by the stunning scenery that New Zealand offers and Gray Line New Zealand has done an amazing job of capturing the magic of this natural environment with exceptional drivers and driving routes.”
The GPS audio tour system (TriggerPOINT) is a location based (GPS) triggered, wireless tour entertainment solution offering multilingual tour commentary delivered simultaneously to foreign language passengers on several Gray Line New Zealand tours of the South Island. This portable GPS Tour solution has been configured to accommodate luxury motor coaches in six languages – with the first phase of the project providing English, Spanish, Japanese, and Mandarin audio tours. In addition to providing a fun and informative tour experience, the system also reduces driver training time and promotes safer driving.
