The way to go!

We downloaded all of Shaka’s Big Island Tours and have used 3 of them already! It’s like having our own personal tour guide with us in the car. The GPS works amazingly well and we felt like we were let in on some real secrets along the way!

Like a personal guided tour

Driving the Big Island and visiting Volcano National park would be good without this guide, but it is GREAT with the guide. “Shaka Guy,” as we called the narrator, not only gives detailed directions to the best sights, he also shares his deep knowledge and love of Hawaiian culture and history, all with enthusiasm and humor. The music is sometimes themed to what you are hearing on your tour, and sometimes just background between narrations. One suggestion would be to enlarge the library of background music which did get repetitive, especially by our third island! Worth every penny and more.

Must Use!!

This was an incredible app to use for a self-paced tour and it was entertaining as well! Next time we come to Hawaii, we will be using this again!

Keep it up!! 🤙🏼

Ok, third island, third time with Shaka. We have told loads of friends to get this guide. Self guided tours, customized for our pace, our interests, and our route. Why this didnt exist sooner is beyond me!! Will be checking back for every trip hereafter!! Feedback: optionality for tour directions is great but at times the directions suggest turning left but really you meant to turn right. It is minor and easily corrected but may confuse those with less sense of direction.

Great way to see the island

We downloaded this app after our hotel recommended it and we are so glad we did. We really enjoy the guide and all the spots that are pointed out along the way. Even the music is really fun!
