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.
I recently took a trip to Oahu and used the Shaka self-guided tour app for my sightseeing adventures, and I have to say, it was the best app ever! The app was incredibly user-friendly and easy to navigate, making it a breeze to plan my itinerary and explore all the island had to offer. The app provided detailed information about each site, including historical background and interesting facts, which made the experience even more enriching. I particularly loved the feature that allowed me to customize my itinerary based on my interests and preferences. This gave me the flexibility to explore at my own pace and make the most of my time on the island. The app was also very reliable, with accurate directions and maps that made it easy to navigate my way around the island. The audio guides were a fantastic addition, providing me with insights and commentary on the sites I was visiting. Overall, I can't recommend this self-guided tour app enough. It truly enhanced my trip to Oahu and made it an unforgettable experience- especially Shaka the narrator. We loved him and his sence of humor! If you're planning a trip to Oahu, this app is a must-have!
Easy and accurate directions for driving. Very informative. Liked the stories and history. We enjoyed our day ! No stress or guessing. Loved it and highly recommend it!
Mahalo for the best app ever. We took both tours around Oahu and had the best time. This is my third time on the island, my fiancé’s first. He saw more in a couple of days, than I saw in all my other times. We were both impressed with all of the history of what we were seeing, as well as the music played. Thank goodness I found this, and didn’t pay some tour company $125 a piece for theirs. We loved being on our timetable, and being able to stay places as long as we wanted, or just move on, if it didn’t interest us. We will definitely use the other apps in the future, when visiting other islands. Wonderful job, guys. We recommend that everyone use this. It’s affordable, and very well worth a look. Especially if you are trying to see the whole island in the most affordable way ever. 🌴🤙🌈🏄🏻♀️
Absolutely loved using the app for the North Shore Loop. Seeing the archway and the beautiful baby that was across from it was absolutely stunning and we would’ve never known about it unless it was for the app. I’d highly recommend this for anybody!
This is the 3rd Shaka tour we purchased. This was the best discovery, it has streamlined our vacations I can’t imagine doing one without it anymore! Gotta love not missing anything
If you were using your rental car to drive around the island, this is the app for you! It navigates you through cool places giving turn by turn directions, and taking you to things that you would never see if you didn’t know where you were going! This was a lifesaver!
Our family utilized this app on two separate trips to Oahu this year. We loved seeing sights we wouldn’t have known were along the way to our destinations and all the random tidbits of info we learned along the way. Highly recommend!
Fun, educational, good stops, and it just works. Hooked it up to Bluetooth in the rental car and whole family enjoyed the tour. Way to go !!
The app took us to an awesome selection of places just locals know. The vocal interaction with the narrator felt quite natural. It was splendid like if the narrator was next to us. We highly recommend it.
What a great app! And so useful!
