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.
The best app, don’t go to Hawaii without it!! See everything you want to see and learn more than you could ever without hiring the best guides. #lethawaiihappen
We loved everything about this app. Completed three of the four tours, and had a blast on every tour. We encountered so many places we would have never heard of otherwise. We look forward to completing the fourth on our next vacation (and probably repeating the others). Definitely worth the price of admission.
Got us lost. Ended tour when we started driving.
We have used this app in both Maui and Kauai and could not love it more. So helpful!
A friend who used this app recommended it to us and I wholeheartedly agree. It made the drive around Kauai really enjoyable and pointed out so many things along the way we never would have thought to stop at otherwise. The GPS is amazingly accurate. Usually with driving guides, they tell you where to go and then you have to navigate yourself there and hit “play” on the app. Not with the Shaka guide! It knows where you are and plays fun background music while you drive and then automatically starts the guide when you get to the right spot. So if you’re stuck in traffic, or take a wrong turn, you don’t have to worry about getting off-sync with the tour. Amazing! The content is really fun and good for all ages. The stories, history and legends are really interesting, and we found ourselves using some of their catchphrases during our trip, eh brah?!
I really like the KAUA’I tour but tried to use it about 3 weeks ago and it wouldn’t work. So I went to the website and went through the procedure to reset it and it looked like it was successful. So I tried to use it today about two weeks later and had a lot of trouble and finally got it going after a half an hour. I’m wondering if the heavy cloud cover and light rain could be the reason.
I have been to Kauai over 15 times in 22 years. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this until now! Excellent, user friendly, you can go at you own pace, stop at all or none of the highlighted places, turn on and off as you wish. We had no problem downloading the 4 trip options, and the tour automatically started when we were in range of the first starting point (turn the app on of course), with sound through our rental car speakers, when we connected the phone via usb. We did the Wailua falls tour yesterday because we had never done the Fern Grotto boat ride, and we loved it! Highly recommended!!!
This was a great way to experience the island of Kauai. It worked great on the phone and there were no issues. My only wish is that it would support apple car play and android auto to aid in the navigation. Thank You for the Great Experience
Wow. No way we could have done everything without this app. We looked ahead and picked and chose what we wanted to do. Over 3 days we did all 4 driving tours in Kauai and covered the entire island. We skipped things we didn’t feel the need to do. We learned more and saw more than we could have with us navigating ourselves. Highly highly highly recommend this so much!
I used for my 6 day stay in Kauai. I found it Highly valuable audio guide for driving around to visit all interesting parts of Kauai. I liked the fact that it picked the location using GPS and started guiding from wherever I was. I found a challenge to setup as Apple Carplay would kickin automatically and interfere with Guide's audio. Also the guide doesn't pickup your location if you are driving in reverse direction. Overall, wonderful resource, well worth what I apid for. Thanks for interesting stories and cultural background.
