Your benefit: simple, smart and affordable


For tour guides and guided group tours

Discover elysium, an easy-to-use alternative to traditional tour guide systems. You don't have to buy or rent expensive hardware anymore, because with our handy app you can use your smartphone for voice transmission. Simply transmit your voice to your guests and let them participate via QR code or PIN directly on their own smartphones.

With elysium, it's easy to register and create your group in seconds! This reduces your organisational effort to a minimum, leaving you more time to focus on what's important: Your tour!

  • Easy & fast handling
  • No more buying or renting special hardware
  • Unlimited group size and range

"Bring your own device" for your listeners - no matter which smartphone and operating system

Your listeners can join your tour via QR code or PIN without downloading an app or registering. Your voice is streamed live via the mobile browser and your listeners only need their smartphone and headphones, regardless of which smartphone model they use.

  • No app download & registration required for your listeners
  • Use of your listeners' own smartphone & headphones


Easy licencing model - no subscription

elysium is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. You need licences for the voice transmission. One licence is required per listener during each tour. For more planning security, you can easily purchase these licences in advance in the In-App Store (pre-paid). Alternatively, if you don't know the size of your group in advance, elysium can suggest a suitable licence package after the group has been created (Add-Pay-Go).

With these two options, you are well supplied with licences and can also add spontaneous guests to your group. By the way, even during an already running tour! 

  • Pre-Paid or Add-Pay-Go comfortably via the In-App Store
  • always the right amount of licences available
  • 1 licence = 1 listener per tour

Industry: Construction

"As a city guide, I have recently started using this app for my guided tours. It's perfect because my tour participants can use their own devices. ... It's also very easy to join a tour: by entering a pin or scanning a QR code. I recommend this app for all tour guides!"

"As a tour guide, elysium has enriched my work enormously. It's very easy to use, even for guides who don't have an affinity for mobile phones, and my guests can hear me perfectly. As I only work as a guide part-time, I haven't used the extra devices yet. That's where an app comes in handy."

More Informations



Navigate to the "Home" screen at the bottom center of the elysium app, tap "+Add listener" and follow the instructions on your smartphone. 

A maximum of 100 listeners can participate in a guided tour at the same time. A larger number of listeners will be possible in a future version of elysium.

The duration of a guided tour is currently limited to 12 hours. After this time, the tour will automatically end and the group will be disbanded. Longer valid licenses will be integrated in a future version of elysium.

Multiple guides in parallel in one tour, so called co-guides, are not possible at the moment. This feature will be integrated in a future version of elysium.


Removing a single listener from your group is currently not possible. This feature will be integrated in a future version of elysium. However, your listener can leave your audio stream via the browser. This is a frequently asked question, and we are working to address it in our updates.

You can easily change your QR-Code in the menu under "Your QR code".


The QR code is permanently assigned to your person. This gives you the possibility to print your QR code for example. A possible scenario when the QR code could be changed would be a change of employer of an employed tour guide.
