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 used this app for both the classic road to Hana tour and the western loop tour while in Maui. So worth the money spent! We were able to know all of the best places to check out along with great directions throughout the tour. We definitely highly recommend! Kathy & Ted Medford Oregon
The Road to Hana without the Shaka Guide would still be a great ride, but with the Shaka Guide it is awesome. Not only does it point out the areas of interest such as the waterfalls, but it also tells about the history and geology of the area. And it includes Hawaiian music to set the tone. The fact that it is GPS-based means that it doesn’t rely on cell service - it’s a good thing because in parts of the trip there is none. And you are warned before using it that you need to have a car charger - which you do as your iPhone battery will go down to nothing very quickly without a charger. We bought the five trip series and used three of them - and that’s a great deal. I suggest that you drive the Road to Hana - at least the north side route, but don’t leave without the Shaka Maui guide!
Simple to install and use, and it’s fun! Narration was great and the music was awesome! Headed over to Kona in a few days and plan on using their guide app there too!
A friend suggested your guide after their recent trip to Maui so we downloaded it. We loved your guide! It was accurate, educational, funny and entertaining! One small suggestion is to add some more trivia between stops. Keep up the great work, Andrew and Rita! Mahalo and aloha oi!
Bought the 6 pack Shaka Guide for our recent trip to Maui and it was awesome! Even my 6 year old loved listening to it! It was such a great addition to our trip. Specifically loved the Road to Hana tour. If you like to explore on your own at your own pace, this is a must have! Can’t recommend it enough!
I ran across this app accidentally, and after reading the reviews decided to download it. I had been to Maui before 3 or 4 times, but this was the first time for my daughter. This app is golden! Particularly on the road to Hana- which we did twice. This first time we did the entire loop around the bottom of Haleakala, and we stopped at almost everything suggested on the guided tour. The second time, we wanted to hike, and we had reservations for the black sands beach, so we just went to Hana and then back the same way. Both were full day trips, both were made much more enjoyable by the directions, commentary and music. We also used the Haleakala tour for our drive to the top and enjoyed that very much as well. I’ll be checking out the app for the other islands when I come back.
This guide helped us so much! We bought the whole package and did like 3 of the different tours! We loved all the informational/entertaining stories and would have been lost without it. He’ll tell you about each stop to help you see if it’s a stop you want to take. We saved so much time with the Shaka Guide.
Totally worth it! Love the directions and learning the history behind this magical place.
Great guide on the road to Hana. We did the reverse & LOVED it! Lots of great secret stops, so worth it! Also did the Haleakala sunrise tour . Both great. Wish there were more tours. Seems like there are some hidden gems all over Maui❤️
This made our whole trip! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!
