Think of us as your personal tour guide in an app. Shaka Guide has the #1 self-guided GPS audio tours for Hawaii, and now, our 5-star storytelling is available across the country! With Shaka Guide, you’ll get the comfort of a guided tour AND the freedom to explore on your terms. The app features a total of 29 tours in the U.S. But, we won’t stop there – stay tuned for new tours in America’s favorite national parks, cities and more! Here’s how it works - you’ll get hours of audio narration that plays automatically as your drive or walk. Along the way you’ll hear stories about the places you’re visiting, get important travel tips and listen to music. The app works completely offline. This means that even if there’s no wifi where you’re traveling, we’ll still get you where you need to go. Shaka Guide tours never expire — use them more than once or break them up into multiple days. With over 29 audio tours across the U.S. (and counting…) we’re excited to explore together! WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING - “Your own private bus tour!” - “Forget pouring through guidebooks!” - “Shaka won't steer you wrong!!” - “Wonderful customer support” - “Worth every penny!” ‣ DOWNLOADING THE TOURS It’s important that you download the tours (preferably in wifi) before you go. Make sure the tour is completely downloaded and you’ll have no problem using the tours offline. ‣ BATTERY USAGE Please remember that continual use of your GPS can dramatically deplete your battery. Be sure to pack a car charger for your tour. ‣ IPAD NOTICE You can use an iPad to take the tour, however, wifi-only iPads without GPS capability will not work. ‣ ABOUT SHAKA GUIDE At Shaka Guide our goal is to connect people with places through storytelling.

We used this guided tour app for our week on the Big Island and it was worth ever penny. We enjoyed the storytelling and saw so many things that we would have otherwise have driven by. Really excellent. So good, in fact, that our 16 year-old son put listening to the audio tour in his top 3 favorites of our trip! Yes—some of the turns need to be announced a little earlier, but everything else was excellent. Made our trip so much better.
This was just a wonderful amazing experience created by the app. So grateful we found it!!
Will be using this app more!
We just returned from Kauai. I downloaded the four Shaka Guide tours of Kauai a few days before we left. My wife and I remarked after completing the first one—and many more times throughout the week—that the Shaka tours were the best bang-for-the-buck purchase. From just the perspective of finding places to enjoy, the guide was awesome. But the additional value of the historical and cultural narrations made the tours even more enjoyable for us. We were unsure whether our kids (a teen and tween) would enjoy the tours—they did even more than they would admit. I can’t recommend this app more highly. If you have a rental car and some time, you need this app to maximize your enjoyment of the island.
Honestly I’ve never left an app review before but this driving tour of Oahu was amazing. 10/10 recommend.
Shaka guides are totally worth the price! We have done three tours so far, two on Maui and one on Kauai. The guide is super helpful and informative. They hit all the highlights and points of interest while incorporating history about the area. Highly recommend!
The app was easy to use and gave us history and context to our drive and exploration of Joshua Tree. Very well written guide! Would use at other locations!!
My family and I used Shaka Guide for the Road to Hana tour in Maui and it did not disappoint! The local insight, great recommendations, and overall amazing storytelling amplified everything the Road to Hana had to offer. The price is very low for everything that is included with buying the tour such as the networkless gps which helped immensely with navigation especially in a dense forest. I wished that the app had a greater variety in the music that played when driving or “tour in progress” but with the constant stops we took it was alright. I honestly couldn’t imagine doing the Road to Hana without this guide, and in all honesty, I would say spend 20 dollars on this app and go at your own pace than way more with a large group (and stops you may not want) Overall this app is amazing and really impressive for not being owned by a large company. It’s high quality, interesting, and caters to you every need.
We got the bundles for Maui and Kauai. The tours were excellent!! Loved that we got to see a lot at our own pace. I highly recommend these tours!!
We cannot express our appreciation enough for the clear easy to follow directions. The guide gave us excellent historical information. The guides personally was very entertaining and truly kept us engaged in the tour. Many many thanks Five Canadian tourists.
