We bought the whole package, and took our first tour today. I thought that the tour itself was wonderful, pointed out great sites and was very clear with when we needed to pull over to the side of the road or make a turn. I do wish at the beginning of the tour it was specific about how early some of the small towns close so that we could’ve planned accordingly. One enhancement I would love to see is some more music playing during the drive when the tourguide isn't narrating. There was some Hawaiin music played when we first turned around towards home, and it was very enjoyable. We really appreciated that it pointed out some suggested stops that were different on the way home from the way up the mountain. Overall I would definitely recommend this app!
Excellent app, highly recommend. Fun and interesting facts about Kauai.
Made our trip to Waimea Canyon fantastic. We all enjoyed the stories and we didn’t miss any trails or views. Strongly recommend the Canyon hike:)
We found that there were times when we drove south of Princeville, the app went almost 20 minutes with no audio. GPS was tracking fine, but no narration. I tried to restart the app several times. No help. We finally turned around and went back to Princeville to our resort. Waimea Canyon tour was fabulous. The rest of the tours were pretty good, but not up to the level we are used to using this app.
Absolutely loved this app. I hate planning and was so happy to see all the sites and not have to think about at all. The only thing I would recommend is to put an advisory on a couple of the stories for young children. Had to explain a couple things to my daughter which I would’ve been happy to wait another couple years to do. Otherwise, highly recommend and very much worth the price.
We were blown away by how wonderfully designed this app was to see many known and unknown sights, hikes, beaches and look outs. We didn’t have times to see everything on every tour. Some of the tours really need 2 days so give yourself some more time. It was really great for us to plan what spots to skip and which spots to stay longer and participate in (like the hikes). This app was so resourceful that it saved us a lot of time and money. Not to mention you receive so much rich cultural history along the way. Highly recommend it!
We downloaded and followed every tour in Kauai. Each tour was awesome, full of amazing sites and interesting stories. In the week that we were there, we felt like we saw almost all of Kauai, thanks to the Shaka Guide. We loved every minute of it and will recommend it to everyone we know going to that beautiful island.
My husband and I used this app to tour the Road to Hana on Maui and a Waimea Canyon driving your in Kauai. These driving tours are great! Offline maps and GPS so you don’t have to worry about the in and out service, and it’s not just driving directions! The guide tells you in a timely manner when something is coming up and where to find parking for it. He even tells you how to enter some of these hikes where the entrance is hard to find. We felt like we had true adventures without an in-person guide!! And yet we didn’t have to worry about not knowing where things were because we had the shaka guide letting us know over Bluetooth when we were close and had arrived. It’s honestly like having a guide with you, and there are also stories and history! I absolutely recommend this, it’s worth the $10 to download the tours.
We had a great time with these tours and found places we never would have found on our own. A must do!
