A must

This app is a must for Hawaii travelers. It does an excellent job narrating your drive around the island at your own speed and discretion. Love it! A must buy for the whole package!

Because of Covid we wanted to do a self guided tour to not be around other people! This was perfect. We literally covered the entire island of Hawai’i with these tours. We learned so much! The Volcanoes National Park tour was exceptional! The narrator’s stories and history lessons were a welcomed addition to the journeys between landmarks! Thank you Shaka Guide. We will recommend you to all our friends who travel to the islands!

Very good 👍. We did all 5 of the tours on the Big Island, or at least parts of them. Both my wife and I really enjoyed the various tips and info that the Shaka app. gave us. In these times of Covid we really didn't want to do a regular tour group and this ended up being even better because we could do it at our own pace and skip things if we wanted. I highly recommend getting this app. Its totally worth it.
