If you've visited even one of India's major monuments, you already know that sinking feeling. Crowds, pesky guides and no space to appreciate the beauty or history of the place, much less learn anything. CaptivaTour offers to be your one-stop text and audio guide to ease your misery. It can’t control the crowds, but it can tell you when to avoid them. Buy one of their packs (65–250), depending on which site you would like to visit. You can then access the audio guide (varies from no audio to 90 min) and the entire textual information. Choose between ‘lite’ packs, which cover just the basics, or the complete pack, which contains exhaustive information. ‘The Big India Pack’ includes 17 monuments and their tours for 1,000. So, for example, if you want to visit the Red Fort in Delhi, after you buy your pack it tells you when to go, how much the tickets cost and where to walk, so you can listen to the audio guide and explore the corresponding building.
