  • Great ap!

    Wonderful tour of our of the way sights!
  • Just a sales pitch for other paid apps

    By Parkville
    I don’t mind paying for apps that tell you up front it will cost you. I DO mind apps that first force you to sign in with google or Facebook and share buckets of data with them and only THEN tell you it’s merely a gateway to other apps you must pay for. Total scam app. Booooo.
  • Simply Awesome

    By Jalama88
    I’ve never written a review of an app before but this one was simply awesome. Highly recommend. We used it for the road to Hana with my family of four (15 year old boy and 19 year old girl). They loved it. We found spots we never would have found. Waterfalls we’d never seen before and wouldn’t have known existed and swimming holes that no one knows about. Once you download the tour, the GPS works to kick in the stories and spots to see on Queue. It recommends skipping some of the more crowded spots and made our trip super efficient and enjoyable. Plus the music was fantastic. This app kept us entertained all day on the drive.
  • Best Kauai app!!

    So much great information on these tours! My family found so many gems in Kaua’i that we never could've seen without this app! Worth every penny!
  • Shaka Kauai-well worth the purchase

    By tourists from Massachusetts
    First time visiting Kauai and wanted to make the most of our time so found this app. Although I was hesitant we did download it and found it to be very informative and entertaining. It was as if the narrator were sitting in the car with us. That’s how accurate the directions were. The Hawaiian folklore and island history and facts about the sights kept us all entertained while driving. The hikes and sights were amazing!! Definitely listen to narrator when describing the hikes...some can be challenging. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to tour/explore the island on their own.
  • Fantastic!!

    The Shaka Kauai app added enormously to our time on Kauai. The tours are interesting, informative, easy to follow and well produced. We enjoyed the tour of the North Shore so much we did the Waimea Canyon/Na Pali Coast tour the next day. Anyone planning to visit these areas should get these tours. Truly terrific.
  • Great app

    Great app. Very informative and entertaining. We saved a ton compared with a cruise ship excursion and our family thought this was probably better.

    Shaka Guide was a great way to explore Kauai and the other Hawaiian islands. We enjoyed using the “Waimea Canyon and Na Pali Coast” tour during our stay in Kauai as it allowed us to travel and explore on our own time at our own pace. Shaka Guide was very informative and kept us entertained throughout the ride. My only two complaints were the slight downtime between stops (never drastically long, but nobody likes dead silence) and the fact that Shaka Guide started to repeat some of the highlights on the way back because of their location on the map (just a little too close). Overall, I would highly recommend Shaka Guide for your next adventure around the Hawaiian islands.
  • Excellent car tour

    By romack241
    Played Ap through my iPad as rental car didn’t allow media hookup. All could hear in three minivan rows. Download is a must as cell service doesn’t exist. Bring a charger because lack of service and use of Ap eats battery. Directions are very clear. Recommendations are perfect. Hikes can be difficult and very muddy in Kaua’i.
  • Great travel app while in Kaua’i

    By jenzuf
    We’ve been to Kaua’i several times now. We were going to travel to the north side and found this cool app that gave us a great tour, highlighting all the cool stops along the way and more importantly the great little stories about Kaua’i along the way. We had a local from Oahu with us on this drive and they were super impressed with all the cool stories. I loved hearing about all the cool stops...even the driver my hubby was able to enjoy the tour! For only $8 a tour, we will be purchasing more tours of the island for sure!!
