Tired of being tied down to hardware? ELYSIUM tgs is the solution. Not only does it offer unlimited range, its ability to be used worldwide makes it a serious choice for  maximum productivity.

With over 20 years of experience in the world of group tours, we have developed an app that is a tour guide system. ELYSIUM tgs is the world's first app to offer all the common functions of a  tour guide system in a smartphone environment.

Helpful features such as dialogue and guide-me-home functions are included. Benefit from additional practical functions and turn your tour into a digital experience.

On this page we answer the most important questions about the app, how the license model works or how you can get a quick overview as a guide about the app. Register here for the free beta test. The test runs until the end of November 2019.

Quick start as guide


What is the data consumption of ELYSIUM tgs?

This depends on how intensively and with which functions the app is used. Currently we have been able to calculate a consumption of 20 MB per hour. For comparison: One minute of music streaming consumes 2 MB. A Youtube video stream consumes 2-8 MB per minute.

Can ELYSIUM tgs also be used without Internet?

No. In contrast to classic hardware, ELYSIUM tgs uses the mobile Internet or WiFi for data transmission. The advantage is that you are spared local interference from other groups: So you can use the app worldwide.

If your guests do not want to use a SIM card abroad, there is the option of a mobile router. Currently, up to 32 guests can access the mobile Internet for this purpose. Only one SIM card is required for the router. 

How many groups are possible at the same time?

One guide serves one group. In your later administration interface you can create as many guides as you like and serve as many groups as you like at the same time.

What is the range with ELYSIUM tgs?

In theory, the range is unlimited, since the data transmission works over the mobile Internet. The basic principle is comparable to conventional telephony. In order not to lose anyone in the group, we have integrated the distance warning.

Can the guide also use an external microphone?

Yes, in principle any microphone can be connected with suitable plug. Bluetooth headsets can also be used.

What are the system requirements for smartphones?

For iOS (Apple) at least version 9.5 or newer is required. For Android devices at least version 4.4 is required. The newer the smartphone, the better the app performance and the more accurate the GPS.

Must the guest use special headphones?

No. The guest can use the headphones, which are included with every smartphone. Bluetooth headphones can of course also be used here.

What if my guests don't have their own smartphone?

In this case, we recommend renting smartphones. These are available for around €100 and only need to have the app installed and an internet connection via W-Lan or SIM card.

licence models

How to use Long Term Licences?

In the choosen time period the licences can be used multiple times by different groups one after another. After one group is finished and deleted by the guide, the licences are free to use.

For the choosen time period you can guide as many groups as you want, as long as the groupsize does not surpass 10 guests.

Example: 10 long term licences for 1 month

Sample calculation:

1 long term licence for 1 month: 8,99 €
long term licences for 1 month: 89,90 €

You pay 89,90€ for one month for an unlimited number of guided tours, as long as the group does not consist of more than 10 people.




How to use Short Term Licences?

In this 24h-time period the licences can be used once by one guest. After the group is deleted by the guide, the licences are expired and can not be reused.

Example: 10 short term licences for 10 guests, for 24 hours

Sample calculcation:

1 short term licence for 24h: 1,00 € (without bulk discount)
10 short term licences for 24h: 10,00 €

10,00 € for 1 tour for 24 h.


You can also mix long term and short term licenses within a group.

Example: You have 10 long-term licenses and unexpectedly another guest wants to join your group. This guest uses a short-term license for 1,00 € for 24h.

Licences - the perfect solution for every budget
