Eddie our tour guide was fabulous! We took it upon ourselves to give him a name since he spent the day talk story. He showed us the most beautiful sites and led us to ono shave ice.
I really liked all four of these Kauai tours. I live here but didn’t know a lot of the stories shared. It was fun to do during covid-19. I would definitely advise to drive slow, not only as a courtesy to the locals who live here, but also because some of the turns and stopping points come up quicker than you realize, and also because most of the time you turns are illegal in Hawaii.
We happened to be in Kauai on some wet and rainy days. This app got us around to see places that were great no matter the weather. The jokes and occasional accent are corny, but the stories are great and all the places he helps you find are fantastic. Like how easy it is to use the app with it automatically picking up where you are are. So easy to pick and choose where to go and what to skip. This just made our trip as good as it could be. Will use this when I visit the other islands. Totally worth the purchase. Mohalo!
Sure love this app! Self guided tours are fun and so much cheaper than a real tour. We see places tour buses can’t stop at!
This app was SO helpful & fun. It works without WiFi, which is amazing. It really does his all the main points of interest. And we loved listening to the stories during longer drives between locations. It was one of our favorite tools for an amazing trip!
I love all the interesting island facts. We were in Kauai for 7 days. Gave us days to follow the tour and days to add in excursions. Without this app we would have missed out on so much of the island, not knowing all the great beaches to check out. This app made our trip! *Little side note on one of the days it took us to a swinging bridge that is no longer in use. The locals told us to get off it. 😬
We purchased all the tours for Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. Every tour took us to places we would have never found on our own. The GPS navigation works flawlessly, and the narratives are informative and entertaining. We’ve been to the Hawaiian Islands multiple times, and we learned so much more this trip. Highly recommend the Shaka Guides!
This was our first time using a driving tutorial. Once we got the hang of it we liked it, but the navigation through the site was a little frustrating in the beginning. We mainly enjoyed the stories, and learned a lot about the history of the area. Also; the audio played way too loud over our car speaker, and there was no way of changing it!
First time I used the Shaka Guide I was in Oahu and it was the best decision I had made. We decided to visit Kauai and I was excited to find out they have a Shaka Guide as well. It did not disappoint. I had traveled with a list of places we wanted to visit. The Shaka Guide pointed those out and so many more. Download all of them and enjoy the island!
