Armchair Travel takes people to faraway places without leaving home.
Offered are two types of virtual travel. The first is recorded video of locations around the world. The second are locations that will be guided by trained local experts and are streamed live. This live experience is different because it’s a one-on-one session between the host and the viewer, enabled by one-way video and two-way audio for real-time communication. This is meant to give your residents more of the feeling of really “being there,” compared with the other experience where you more passively watch the video on the screen. Tours are live from the location scheduled, so different locations are scheduled at different times of the year. Museums tours are also offered and are a great option!
*Because these are live tours, they must be scheduled and will cost an additional $50.00.
(The sessions themselves are about 60 minutes in length and can be canceled or rescheduled with up to 24 hours’ notice).
