We love Hawaii. Not just for its beauty, but also for its rich history and culture. We believe that every destination has a story and we want to tell it. In Hawaii, we have over 20 audio tours that do just that — share the stories of the islands.
We loved the Shaka guides for our time in Kauai. We learned so much, and squeezed so much into our time here, thanks to Shaka! We all learned a little Hawaiian to take hime with us, and loved exploring the island on our one time. The folklore was an especially big hit with our kids (ages 10, 8, and 4). They loved hearing all the history and legend that Kauai has and seeing it play out in the land around them as we drive by was amazing. Shaka guide is a must for anyone traveling to Kauai!
We left the house at 8am and got back at 6:21 pm because we took our time at each stop along the way. The narrator is just the perfect amount of adorable kooky fun! would highly recommend!
Our family of five enjoyed every minute of these tours. We would just pop them on whenever we would take a ride to a new part of the island. Even though my husband and I lived here for a few years a while back, we learned new places and history that we never knew. Thank you!
My family and I had the BEST time doing our tour. It was a spontaneous decision and made our day. The guide was cheesy, but very funny and entertaining. Loved the stories too!!
We used 3 of the 4 apps so far and they were just fantastic. The history/stories were very enjoyable way to pass time between stops. Easy install and It app wakes up perfectly using GPS location so you don’t miss anything. Highly recommended.
The app was really easy to set up and follow the directions. Really fun way to explore the island.
Shaka guide has truly been an amazing way to learn about Hawaii’s history while also seeing the beautiful sites. We bought the package that included the 4 tours on the island and it was worth every penny!
My teenage kids loved it. It kept us entertained but also made us appreciative of the culture.
The Shaka App made our trip to Kauai a memorable adventure. This was our first visit to Kauai (Princeville) and a friend turned me on to Shaka. We trusted her story and Shaka did not disappoint. We had absolutely nothing planned and Shaka took over and guided us around the island with amusing narratives to great pre-chosen points of interest. I especially like the ability to skip points on the tour that did not interest me and have the App just pick up with the next point of interest. Brilliant App that deserves 5 stars. Mahalo Shaka Guide!
I’m someone that loves traveling, been over 50 countries and haven’t experienced a guide tour this great! I’ve used Shaka in both Maui and Kauai and never did it fail to show me an amazing trip. From secret beaches, stunning hikes, great stories of Hawaiian legends and even delicious eats along the way. I HIGHYLY recommend this type of guided tour to everyone who visits the Hawaiian island, even if it isn’t your first time there. Mahalo! May you and your team have great success brah 🤙🏾🌈
