Worth every cent

aspiring climber | June 2020
This was the BEST addition to our toad to Hana trip. We got recommended to use the app last minute and what a blessing that was! Honestly, without the app we would have missed some key things. This app is so on point with how to get you anywhere on the RTH. It tells you exactly when and where to turn, what will be there and what to expect. Little tips a long the way we’re great and they recommend places based on how much time you have to explore. I can’t say enough good things about this app. I will recommend it to EVERYONE who visits the island.

Maui

We used Shaka for many of our Maui tours. It was great. Turn by turn instructions with lots of descriptions as to what to expect at each stop made it easy for us to decide if we wanted to take the time and check it out or go on. So much better than taking a bus tour since you can spend as much time as YOU want to. Would definitely recommend this.

Best app for Hana!!

We tried a different app for the way into Hana. We purchased the reverse road to Hana from Shaka on the way back. It was so much better! So much more information and stories with this one!! Worth every penny!!
