"Soundmap's audio tours offer a very personal perspective... It's a way of becoming immersed in an area, a bit like being in your own film complete with a soundtrack." (Time Out London)
"Walking, ipods and London trivia are the holy trinity as far as Londonist is concerned. The three have reached conjoined perfection in Soundmap." (Londonist.com)
"London has such a wealth of history and things to do, that it can become a little bewildering for visitors. Even for seasoned Londoners like myself, it's always surprising how little we actually know about this great city. Soundmap offers a solution." (Journeylist.com)
