Great App!

We were recommended to this app by a friend, and we did the Road to Hana, Maui. It was scary! The music did get annoying on the way back so we would pause it, and then the tour guide would start back up again automatically. You should preview the spots on the tour 2 days before you plan to go, and make your reservations. Also, do your research—certain days of the week may be less crowded. If we knew that we would preview the spots on the listing ahead of time the night before, perhaps we would have booked the black sand park reservation ahead of time. Unfortunately, we passed the black sand park and did not have a reservation, but felt frightened enough of the road that we did not go back. We went all the way past Hana and did not reach the seven springs. We appreciated the reminder to turn around, providing us a time estimate for the way back. We were able to visit a public waterfall that people were swimming in. It was very far to get there. Heading back west toward the OGG airport on the road to Hana, was tricky since the stop sign for the one way roads favored the East bound traffic as they could come closer to the stop. It is dangerous to go in reverse. Overall, we survived thankfully and mostly in part a great thanks to the tips on tracking time and ensuring we have enough drive time for the journey back.

Worth ever penny!

I was hesitant to spend $20 on a single app but bit the bullet and oh my goodness was it worth every penny. The directions are great, the stories even better. When in Hana I had no reception and couldn’t get maps to ‘Ohe’o but Shaka guide knew exactly where I was and acted as both my map and my tour guide! Also, we had a 7 year old with us and he was totally entertained, too! We had expected that he would need some pacification with an iPad at some point but Shaka to the rescue, we were screen free the whole drive! Really wish there was a Shaka guide just for tooling around town!

Worth every penny!

The narrator was very entertaining for the 12 hour adventure.

Love this!!

We loved how the guide helped decide what to stop and see and what to skip in consideration of time. He has a good sense of humor. So glad I purchased it.

Terrific tour!

This tour was very easy to use. My niece recommended it and it made for a very rich experience. We previewed it before going and pre-trip preparations and advice were spot on. It helped with timing and clearly laid out all the options with enough time to make decisions given the 12-hour day. A must!

Even a resident can learn from it

Dowloaded this for a friend and ended up doing the drive with her. Great app!! Even as a Maui resident I learned some new stuff. A few outdated things post pandemic, but things change so fast these days… very much worth it!!

Highly Recommend

Very well done. I have used it on two trips to Maui and was very entertained. Thoughtfully designed with lots of fun facts and info…Funny tunes as well.

Road to Hana tour

This app is amazing! The tour guide was funny and had amazing insight into the stories and legends of Maui. We loved having all of the local info for hidden gem spots and all of the amazing waterfalls! We just wish we had the full 10 hrs to spend on the tour - plan ahead and follow the tour guide’s recommendations. It will be worth it!

Amazing must have app!

Thank you so much for creating this it took away so much stress to just plug into the car and do the journey rather than read a book and try to manage mile markers. The background info and history added a great depth to the journey we really snjoyed it! My 8 year son was sad when we turned it off because we were finished! Also the music is wonderful! This is a purchase you will not regret

MUST download!

My wife and I wanted to drive the road to Hana on our honeymoon. She did extensive research and this app was the one she decided on. We downloaded the tour to our phone, connected to airplay in the rental car and did the reverse tour (to reduce traffic and make sure we saw all the spots). The narration, map integration, and information give was great. We couldn’t believe how detailed it was and for some reason we felt like we knew exactly where to go and when to be there, the entire trip. If you’re doing this drive, download this app. We weren’t sure about spending $20 for an app but once we were finished, covered in mud, and had tons of memories, we would have paid $100 for this app. A++
