It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise. It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall. For the easiest possible experience, the entire island has tour commentary. All you have to drive, and the tour will transition automatically as you move from one section of the island to another. You simply drive, listen to the commentary and make decisions the places that interest you the most, just like have a local friend to show you around. Don’t know where to begin?

We thoroughly enjoyed this app when we took our first trip to Maui last year. It was like having our own personal tour guide in the car with us. Lots of interesting information we wouldn’t have known otherwise. I just purchased again for a different trip. Thanks!
We used this app our first time to Maui and LOVED it. When we went to Kauai, we bought that one too. Both are great. There are so many things / places covered, you feel like you won’t miss anything when you’re driving around. And it inspires you to do that - just drive around and see what else there is... Highly recommended!
Extremely helpful app .. totally worth 10$.
Don’t leave home without this app. You will love it.
This was an excellent app ... fun to listen to the history of Hawaii while driving to Hana and the narrator has a wonderful voice. The suggested stops and the parking directions were right-on! I highly recommend this app!
Great directions, it even warns you about lanes to use and potential traffic dangers. Lots of info about the island while on the way. Mixed with a little corny humor. If you connect to Bluetooth it comes right through the car speaker (awesome). Did not interfere when used with music. Suggests turns for options along the way. Only downside is that if used on a phone (the way we did) it is not useful visually, although this was not a deterrent.
This app was really great to have on our recent trip to Maui. We got a lot of useful info and also some amazing historical facts. Well worth your time and money.
This app is absolutely amazing and I will look for it anywhere I go in the future. It pointed out things we never would have known about, and helped to know where certain lookout points where that aren’t marked. We would have missed so many amazing things without the app. It also is better than any tour guide would ever be at providing history of the island. This was money well spent!
This app was amazing! I was hesitant to spend $10 for it but did so on a friend’s recommendation. Highly exceeded my expectations! Easy to listen to, entertaining and informative.
Oh my god this app is amazing
