It did lose me a few times and had to restart the app which was a pain but overall a great tour.
The guide has a friendly voice. The tour information and tips, along with the history and storytelling, are great! We used this app for Maui several months ago, and we immediately purchased it for Oahu once we booked a return visit to the islands. Well worth it!
We used Shaka guide for the road to Hana, and now have used the Oahu guides. So informative, fun and helpful
I don’t usually leave reviews (or buy apps) but this one is amazing. Our first time to Oahu and we purchased both. Perfect guidance and loved the little tidbits of info, suggestions and humor as we passed areas. (No constant talking though). We were so impressed by the easy to follow directions and I lost track how many times we said we loved the app and what a great purchase it was. We would never have been able to plan out the routes as well on our own. We usually take hop on/off buses in new cities and this was similar with the narration and ability to see all the hot spots (and some secret ones!) in a nice loop without a bunch of backtracking. We did the tours in 3 VERY full days but had we stopped and actually swam at the beaches and did the full tours at Dole etc. it easily could have been a week or more worth of activities. We would have spent $500+ on a couple days of tour buses to see the places we were able to go to on our own with this app plus we could do it in our own time. The app literally guided us from the road in front of our hotel to the destinations and back. Buy it- you won’t regret it.
Best app for touring Oahu! I purchased both the East Oahu Shoreline and the Circle Island tour, and it was incredible! Loved driving along with the tour, stopping and little known and locals spots, seeing things I wouldn’t have gotten from a tour guide, and learning the islands history, along with some great music in between! You have your own personal tour guide who let’s you know where to stop, eat, and even where restrooms are! I’ve also done the Road to Hana with Shaka Guide Maui, and super impressed with that as well! Driving instructions and prompts are super easy to follow! Rent your own car and have your own personal tour guide! You won’t be disappointed!
The only down side to using the FPS wrapes sÿ
Ok I was really skeptical about this app, but, it was awesome. You drive to the number 1 stop and it starts telling you where to go, ( he gives you a heads up on lanes and that stuff but, will say turn here so be ready to turn!). He took us to places we would have never found on our own. We did the circle tour and Wednesday we are doing the the East tour, at first I thought I screwed up because the circle tour goes through the East side but, then I checked and it takes you to different places. I highly recommend this app, he tells you to download the tour and to bring a charger fo your phone and was right! Just do it you will be happy you did!
We used this on Oahu and found it so helpful! We loved it and enjoyed the tour and the comments!
My husband and I loved having the opportunity to tour Oahu at our own pace. The guide was fantastic, providing fun facts and excellent stopping points! We wish our typical GPS was just as accurate and fun. Highly recommend!
Fantastic!! Very easy to use.
