The Future of Educational Travel Is Here: Time Traveler Tours' Award-Winning StoryApp iTinerary


PARIS, Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Put the past in the palm of your hand - time-travel on your iPhone or iPod touch with the murderers, gravediggers and celebrity photographers of Time Traveler Tours. Dedicated to youth - and the young at heart - these groundbreaking tours combine the traditional power of storytelling with the latest in mobile technology to bring history and culture to life.

Just in time for your upcoming trip to Paris, the first Time Traveler Tours StoryApp iTinerary is now fully bilingual. Entitled Beware Madame la Guillotine, A Revolutionary Tour of Paris, this iTinerary is an interactive voyage to the French Revolution, told through the eyes of 24-year-old murderess Charlotte Corday in the moments before she is to meet her fate.

As Charlotte spins her harrowing yarn, explaining why she stabbed radical propagandist Jean-Paul Marat, she takes you on a daylong adventure spanning Paris' right and left banks. Stand-alone maps, directions, even a restaurant recommendation (with discount) aid your quest. Orientation games, scavenger hunts and brainteasers make discovering history effortless and fun.

Listen to the narration in one language while reading along in another; disable the text altogether and let Charlotte's story unfold. Beware Madame la Guillotine is already a favorite of teachers and librarians, whether or not they are planning a trip to Paris.

The English-only version has received rave reviews:
