Absolutely Amazing

College Prof | December 2021
We have been to the Big Island many times but never knew what we were missing until we got Shaka!! The technology is truly amazing with the narrative following GPS coordinates which makes it incredibly accurate. The narration is excellent and the navigation directions are spot on. Very impressed and hope that they will keep updating the app as things change!! Worth every penny!!

Great value

Califbust | December 2021
We saw things on the tours that we never would have seen on our own. The app showed us things to do, and places to eat. We enjoyed the history lessons along the way. We highly recommend this app.

Worth every penny

I stumbled across Shaka Guide just before visiting Big Island for the first time. I’m not the type with the patience to be part of a tour group. I like to go off the beaten path and at my own pace. This app made the adventure complete. My kids loved it, not only because it took us to places we might not have discovered on our own in the short amount of time, but the learning the history about the places was great.
