About Us

VoiceMap takes stories beyond the screen. It papers them to walls, hangs them over statues, and plants them neatly in public parks. Then, when you come along, there they are: reflections on the soul of LA, murder on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, nostalgia for the vanishing hutongs of old Beijing, and much more, by storytellers and passionate locals all over the world.

All you need is our mobile app for iPhones and Android devices. It uses your location to play audio automatically and includes offline maps. Just put on your headphones and you’re ready to explore.

If you’d like to tell a story of your own, you can start right now, for free. Our publishing tool is easy to use and our team of editors delights in bringing new stories out into the world.

Our team

VoiceMap was built by storytellers, for storytellers. We think that smartphones and GPS autoplay have transformed audio tours, giving the medium a unique immediacy. The right story, told at the right time, can change how we look at familiar places as easily as it alters our perception of somewhere new.
