Three years ago
a client came to Honolulu to work with me. He brought his wife because it was
their 25th wedding anniversary and they'd never been before to Hawaii. We usually
finished by mid-afternoon, and they wanted to see more of the island.
Unfortunately, I wasn't available to drive them around and show off my hometown
like I would normally do. They were looking for an affordable, fun
alternative to traditional tours. I wished I could duplicate myself and
spend some hours with them. Aloha & welcome to DIYToursHawaii!
What Are DIYToursHawaii?
affordable, fun and easy, just like having friends in the car with you giving
you the 'inside scoops' on all that you see, such as history, culture, great
personal stories, safety tips, legends, and more! Even better than the current apps available
out there or GPS gizmos, our self-guided audio tours share the
behind-the-scenes stories of all that you see, with ‘friends’ giving directions
who can accurately pronounce those Hawaiian street names and can give you parking
advice and account for traffic.
All Oahu tours start in Waikiki, which means 'spouting waters.'
team has spent the past two years pulling together the basic facts, stories and
info for twelve walking and driving tours on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii island.
Now we're stuck. We need funds to turn
our fun scripts into professional audio tours, complete with music.

Why We're Raising Funds on Kickstarter
We’ve spent the
past two years raising funds from family and friends and putting in our own monies
(not to mention all our free time) to cover the ‘start-up lean budget.’ We’re stalled because I’m having major
surgery in a few days and will be ‘in
communicado’ for most likely one full month before I can focus again on
this project. (Who would have imagined in
this modern techie time?!?) Good
thing we’ve got a great team!
By sharing our
story, our team can follow up with YOU and move forward when we receive funding.
