Using Your Abarta AudioGuide

The guides have been designed to be as enjoyable whether you are at the particular site or whether you are sitting in your favourite armchair at home.

Each guide acts like an ‘album’, with the features of the particular site being the ‘songs’ in their own particular track. This ensures that if you find you have to skip a building or feature, it is easy to do so, making sure that you easily get the information you want, when you want it. If you are at the site, then the tracks are generally ordered to create a flowing route around the site, with an introduction to give you the background and a conclusion to summarise the site.
