This tour app was the highlight of the trip!
Like a personal private tour guide, we learned so much! Great history, cultural insights, stories, humor and the best Hawaiian music ever. The GPS link enabled us to travel at our own speed, skip certain sites, even jump between tours. And, it’s a bargain price! Welcome to the new world of travel guidance.

This app was a great find. This was our first trip to Hawaii which meant we had a lot to learn Shaka Guide was amazing. He saved us a lot of time researching our road trips and helped us find our way effortlessly. The Shaka guide was entertaining, taught us a lot about the history of the islands, helped us find special places and told us lots of stories we would never have ever heard otherwise. We loved the Hawaiian music. We completed several tours on both Oahu and Big Island and all 3 of us in our group really loved it. Thank you !

I found this on trip advisor but purchased on my phone through the app store. They off a bundle on the Big Island. This was so worth the money especially compared to an expensive tour. The app is very well done, providing narration, stories, music and navigation along the way. When you want to stop, you just pause the app and then start again. It was the perfect way to tour on our own and even gives restaurant recommendations. Great job!

This was much more fun than I expected. There was a lot of information. The app knew where we were and if we skipped a stop. If give it 5 stars but we had some struggle when we turned it off for lunch. We did get back on track after some effort.
