ROUTAKI’S AUDIO

GUIDE INFO FILES

What makes Routaki so special? With every route comes a set of audio files with guide information (RAGIF’s). During your drive these Audio Guide Info Files inform you about items you see or visit, traditions and habits of the locals. You also will be informed about your final destination of the chosen route.

It’s as if your guide or hostess is sitting next to you on the passenger seat!!

EXAMPLES OF RAGIF
This is an audio file about the building constructions on Crete. Because the island has higher risk for earthquakes, it is ordered by law that steel reinforcement and concrete is used for the construction of houses. (in the Infotheek/building-houses you can read more about this.)

This is an audio file about the Venetian style town of Archanes. It is surrounded by vineyards and situated at the foot of the mountain of Jouchtas. (you can read more about Archanes in our Infotheek).
