  • Review of Kauai

    By Chgsrun
    Good app but a little disappointed that you have to buy the island tour in separate tours. The app that we used in Maui gave the whole island for one price. I did like the music on this app though - nice touch.
  • GREAT App!

    By Retired musician
    We very rarely pay for an app, but on a whim we tried Shaka’s Road to Hana tour on Maui. We were hooked! It really is like having a tour guide in your car, one that is both entertaining and informative. The app worked well for us, used our phone GPS instead of data, and provided helpful options to preview and review the tour. We ended up buying their tours for everywhere we went—Haleakalā, Kauai’s Waimea Canyon and North Shore, and the Big Island’s Volcanoes National Park. We tried the competitor app (GyPSy) for circling the Big Island and found it dry and not as user-friendly. Shaka is WAY better. Can’t say enough about the Shaka tours. Enthusiastically recommend!
  • Exceptional App

    By Sold on it
    This is the first time I have used a driving tour app and I am so impressed. The best part is the built in GPS and guide that give great directions and give you plenty of time to make turns, etc. I love the suggestions for places to stop for snacks, lunch, and shopping. It has been so nice to tour on our own while vacationing, yet feel like we have a tour guide right there in the car with us. It has given us more confidence to travel on our own. And we will definitely use this app again. Very easy to use!!
  • Best part of our trip so far!

    We’ve been on the Kauai for 3 days - and unfortunately have had a lot of rain! Not the kind of weather to sit by the pool or beach and relax... so we decide to get out and explore. I googled Kauai driving map and stumbled on this app and decided to check it out. We figured it was worth trying to go to another area of the island looking for some sun - and if no sun was to be found at least we were out seeing something new! What a great decision. We’ve now done all 3 Kauai tours and it’s been the best part of our vacation. The tours are fun, informative, and include great little stops that we would have never found had we not taken the tour. Tours are easy to follow with great and detailed spoken instructions. Even little tips like ‘pull over here and look for someplace to park - because if you go farther down the road it’s difficult to turn around.’ The tour guide is funny and engaging - sharing a great amount of history and interesting anecdotes as you follow the route. I highly recommend investing the minimal cost to purchase the tours - all 3 have been great!!

  • The highlight of our trip!

    By Captain cummi bear

  • Enjoyable!

    By irvine travelers
    We really enjoyed this tour. A little hokey in places but entertaining. Our daughter and son-in-law recommended we use these tours and we have wen pleased. Have used 2 all ready and will use the 3rd. The tours us places even our friends who have been coming here for years haven’t heard of. Well worth the money.
  • The best way to see Kauai!

    By TTownSal
    We stumbled upon this app through a Google search. After reading the reviews, we decided to download and use it as our primary tool for exploring Kauai. This app is excellent. As others have said, it feels as though you have a private tour guide in your car. The app uses GPS to detect your location and, based on that, gives you a spot on narrative of that location. The guide also shows you the best places to pull over to check out the amazing views. You can also pause the app and spend as much or little time in each location as you want without missing a beat. I strongly recommend this app to anybody considering exploring the island. Don’t bother booking a guided tour; rent a car and tour the island with this app — you will have a much better experience (and save a lot of money).
  • Insightful, fun and super convenient.

    By Derfdundidit
    Me and my Wife downloaded this hoping we would get some insight on our way up to the Waimea Canyon. It delivered more than just pointing out facts..it entertained us and really got us in to the Aloha spirit and made us feel like we had our own personal guide with us. Download the tour app before you go, it’ll make it so much easier in the event you lose reception, which you will! The interface is easy, user friendly and when we didn’t stop at a key point of interest, it just moved on to the next one coming up. Love this app.. we’d do all the guided tours if we had more time or found it earlier!
  • They do the planning

    By doughsvoc
    It was great not to have to have a map or guidebook open or to look for signs and just know where to go to see the best parts of the north coast. The narrator verged on cheesy but was actually sort of charming after a while.
