Customer Reviews


Very accurate. Loved the stories.

Volcano tour

It was great once we got it hooked up to the car speaker and my phone. Was a long day driving up from Kona but well worth it.

Worth Every Penny

Spent time on 3 different islands. We would have had no clue how to navigate and find all the hidden gems and learn about all the history.

Self guided audio tour

What Is A Self-Guided Audio Tour?

Think of us as your personal tour guide in an app. Our tours provide everything a guided tour does, but with the freedom to explore on your terms. Here’s how it works:

  • GPS triggers audio narration to play automatically as you drive or walk.
  • Listen to stories, get local insights, visit must-see stops and get turn-by-turn navigation.
