Hamptons Critic | June 2020
Loved having this very timely narration, GPS, and great Oahu information at a very fair app price. Wish I had this for other road trips that I’ve gone on.

So helpful and interesting!

A VP at work learned I was going to Hawaii and highly recommend Shaka Guide. I read Hawaii travel reviews, but I didn’t have the confidence that I had a thorough plan so I gave it a shot. This is the best app I’ve ever used. It took me a little getting used to at first, but after the initial orientation, it was so simple and helpful. I downloaded 2 tours and that gave me 4 days of fun! The guides cover major stops with bonus gems, plus included a lot of background and history of the island. There were stops and recommendations that I hadn’t seen on travel sites that made the trip special. This app will save you hours of planning and put you on your way to a fun-packed vacation. I can’t recommend Shaka Guide enough.

Super helpful!

This was the perfect outline for our trip. We skipped the stops we weren’t interested in but for the most part, this tour pretty much covered all our items on our list. Good parking tips and suggestions for each stop.
