About Us

Tour-Mate’s Story

Tour-Mate has been offering Interpretive Solutions since 1988. Millions of people have taken Tour-Mate tours in museums, art galleries, historic sites, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, national parks and commercial establishments. Through our high quality, easy to use hardware and software, as well as our approach to content creation we have helped sites across the globe to provide a significantly enhanced visit experience. Offering services including but not limited to: script creation, production, translation, and recording; our experienced content creation team can assist you each step of the way in ensuring that you communicate your interpretive vision to your visitors in a fun and engaging way. Tour-Mate’s preferred approach to creating content is to treat it as a ‘work for hire’. One of the features of content as a ‘work for hire’ is that all tour copyrights that would normally attach to Tour-Mate, would transfer to your institution upon completion of the project. Tour-Mate offers clients a fully integrated interpretive experience on multiple platforms. Our products include handheld audio and multimedia guides, fixed-in-place outdoor audio platforms, mobile app creation, and equipment for guided group tours. Taking care of our clients’ needs is the cornerstone of our success. Whether your institution has one hundred visitors or one million visitors annually, your total satisfaction is our primary goal. Once a Tour-Mate Interpretive Solution is in place, we view it as only the beginning of our on-going relationship. We see it as our responsibility to ensure that your interpretive solution runs smoothly.
