Worth Every Dime!” “Best five bucks I've ever spent” “Outstanding app for vacationers” “A great way to see the island at your own pace” **Wifi-only iPads with no GPS capability do not support offline Tour** ** Shaka Guide uses your GPS only when necessary. But please remember that continual use of your GPS running in the background can dramatically drain your battery.
Very fun way to spend the afternoon and see a lot of great sites. I’d highly recommend.
Tour was excellent...but one suggestion: perhaps when downloading the tour before the journey there should be an explanation about needing to purchase the parking permit ahead of leaving for the tour for the end of the road parking lot. We had already left and were well along in the Tour before we knew that. Consequently we weren’t prepared and missed out on that parking cuz all the permits for that day were spoken for. Otherwise it was GREAT!!!
A must download for Kauai visitors. You not only get great advice, you also get great history of the island. Follow your GPS, the guide does the rest! Mahalo 🤙🏽
We enjoyed the tour - it was great to have a narrated tour, learn about the local culture and folklore and glean some insider tips to make the drive fun! We will definitely take Another guided tour, thank you!
I highly recommend this! Super convenient, narration is awesome, funny, historical, great stories and lots of good places to stop! It was worth every penny!
What a great expressive engaging monologue to tour my favorite island with! Not just finding the places that make your vacation but a little bit of history, folklore and humor along the way. This is the best app that I have found.
That was so awesome. Definitely worth a try. Although we were doing touristy stuff, this particular tour felt like we were much closer to locals than others. You will not be disappointed.
Love his directions and commentary.
I bought this through TripAdvisor, got confirmation of the purchase, followed the instructions, but when I started up the app it insisted that I had no purchases and wanted me to purchase it again. I called Shaka four times, sent a chat through their website and emailed them, all with no response in 48 hours. When I brought this to Viator’s (TripAdvisor’s) attention, they checked it out and refunded my money. In the meantime I downloaded the Gypsy Guide app from the Apple store. It is much cheaper, works perfectly and is a lot of fun! I will buy that app for the other islands we visit.
We used two of the 4 Kauai tours Waimea canyon and the Kola & Poipu tours. They were great. So much history and knowledge convened during these tours. They were set up very well to do as much or as little as you wanted. Definitely recommend this app for any one visiting the islands.
