To use this software, boot this disk in an emulator or on a real Macintosh and begin playing the included cassette tape audio file.

The two sides of the tape are identical.

According to the Apple documentation, this tour is supposed to be copy protected. That may, however, just be an excuse to hide bugs that prevent it from copying.

Important: This software is very buggy. It is only intended for the original Macintosh 128k. It may crash or run too fast in emulators.

This software has been tested and works in the PCE Mac emulator ( However, the demonstration programs may load a little too fast, requiring you to wait about two or three seconds after the "tone" to press the button. Once the demonstration starts, the playback speed is correct and matches the tape.
