Existing tour guides are tour guide finder tools don’t give tourists exactly what they want. Tours are usually expensive and only hit the tourist attractions. Manufactured, large-scale, commercial tour packages may include attractions that the tourist doesn’t want to see. If a tourist wants a specific, authentic tour, locals from the area who really know the area can serve as their tour guides at a much more affordable price. A small, personalized experience can benefit a tourists’ experience.

What it does

Wander is web application that uses a variation of the concepts of Uber and Tinder to match local tour guides with tourists.

How we built it

We created a raw, demo version of the website with p5js, HTML, CSS, and Adobe Illustrator.

Challenges we ran into

This was all of our first times developing a web app from scratch, so we ran into some trouble while learning how to do certain things with p5js, HTML, CSS, and Adobe Illustrator.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We created a working demo web app that showed what our actual app would look like.

What we learned

We learned how to create a simple web app from scratch and how to problem-solve and look things up to make progress with our project despite obstacles.

What's next for Wander

The current Wander front-end model web app serves to show what that actual app would look like. The next step would be to implement the back-end with the ability to store and pull information from a database using Python. It would also be ideal for Wander to develop into a mobile app for quick and easy access to tour guides.
