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 will also 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!!

This is an audio file about the building constructions on Crete. Because the island has a higher risk of 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).

Audio Guide Info Files

The above mentioned audio files, the Routaki Audio Guide Info Files (RAGIF’s), will start automatically during your drive. Your own smartphone will tell you the history of that little church you just passed or the way the locals pick their olives. For this, you have downloaded the audio files which fit to the chosen route. And you have installed the Routaki APP on your smartphone (both done in a Wifi zone, e.g. in your hotel). This free to install APP makes connection for you between the GPS coordinates you’ve just encountered and your media player.
