Customer Reviews

Worth it! Good value for money.

Well explained and useful. Thanks!

If I could only give 10 stars..

This app is awesome the greatest thing since PB&J!! Seriously! It’s so informative and precise on all of the locations, and believe me, if you’re going to go on a Hana road trip, you want to know everything you can before and while you’re there. I absolutely love this and would recommend to everyone!!!

Great App!

We used this app to drive the Road to Hana. It was amazing. It had attention detail, like calling out where to stop for restrooms, which proved to be invaluable since there were long stretches without any. That was so clutch. Downloading the tour beforehand was great so it still ran when we lost cell service. It seemed like they’d thought of everything. Even the filler music between the guide’s instructions/facts was nice. I’d highly recommend this app.
