London, United Kingdom
The first destination on this tour is the historic city of Bath, where the ancient meets the modern world. You’ll learn all about the history of the Baths, from its origins as a temple dedicated to the goddess Sulis Minerva, to its eventual development into a bathing complex.
On display are thousands of Roman objects that have been found on-site over the years. These include the Haruspex stone and a gilt bronze head of the goddess Sulis Minerva, one of the best-known objects from Roman Britain.
Our second destination is where over 5,000 years of history are waiting for you at the prehistoric site of Stonehenge. Built on the windswept Salisbury Plain by our Neolithic ancestors, Stonehenge is a site that has courted controversy and stirred opinion for hundreds of years. Decipher the mystery of Stonehenge using an interactive audio guide exclusive to Evan Evans. Learn who built it and why, as well as how it was constructed using the most basic equipment made of wood and stone.
Evan Evans requirement was for non-English guests to be able to enjoy a multilingual commentary in five languages, while the guide simultaneously provided a live guide commentary to guests listening to the “live channel”. Evan Evans chose Kruse Global to provide their required technology solution.
Kruse Global were the only organisation that could provide a wireless multilingual commentary solution that enabled Evan Evans guests to seamlessly transit from commentary automatically delivered by GPS delivered while on-board the coach, to the guide then manually triggering commentaries as guests were guided around Bath.
Upon arrival at Stonehenge, The Kruse Global guest devices automatically switch over to “GPS mode” to enable guests to automatically hear commentaries relevant to their location as they walk around the Stonehenge monument, at their own pace.
