Overview

Just because you don't want to wait in line to enter the Eiffel Tower doesn't mean you don't get to know the tower's fascinating story. As you admire the tower from different angles in this special self-guided tour, you will be able to relive the moment when the Eiffel Tower was inaugurated. As you listen to the narrators tell the story with 3D sound effects, you will feel as if you are in a movie. You will learn all about the controversies, challenges, and the origins on how the idea of the tower first came about to Gustave Eiffel. As you walk around the Champs de Mars and view the different angles of the tower, you will travel back in time with sound effects and get up close and personal listening to a special commentary evoking the thoughts of its creator. You will understand how he struggled to build it, the artists that protested against it, the role of the First World War in the story of the tower, and the famous characters that came to its inauguration.

Imaginarme estar en París desde la habitación en mi casa fue una locura, conocer cada fase de construcción y el autor intelectual de esta hermosa obra ha sido fantástico. Es una experiencia distinta a las demás.

Escuchar la historia de la creación de la Torre Eiffel con mi Soundwalk ha sido una maravilla, ir recreando volver al pasado y escuchar que existieron tantos problemas para la creación de la Torre sin saber lo impactante que sería para el mundo, y hoy en día siendo una de las 7 Maravillas del Mundo.
