Customer Reviews


The Shaka Guide Loop Tour was amazing. The app works so well and is spot on with knowing where we were and directing us accurately. I’ve NEVER experienced anything like this app before. I especially enjoyed the historic narration and Hawaiian music which was played throughout the tour. It is a must for your Road to Hana trip. Side note: I’m a travel agent and wanted to test this out for my clients! Well, it exceeded my wildest imagination! Superb app and I highly recommend it. Great job Shaka Maui!!

Best tour guide for Hawaii

Excellent tours in all islands, works beatifillt with driving, letting you know where to turn, what’s worth it if you are short on time, a lot of history trivia. Worths way more than the price, way way more. Mahalo!

Great app

Used the Maui tour. Very helpful, educational, fun and informative. Highly recommend
