ROAD TO HANA ADVISORY:
There is only one road into and out of Hana. People who live in nearby communities have to drive this road everyday and the thousands of daily drivers on this one-lane highway greatly impacts their lives. Please be respectful — do not park illegally, pay attention to signs, drive responsibly, and pull over to let locals pass. Do not enter private property or visit sites that are unsafe. And, please remember to pick up your trash.

All Shaka Guide tours come with customer support and a satisfaction guarantee. Tours never expire.

Excellent driving guide for Hawaii! We have used this app for the islands of Hawaii and Maui. Both are excellent at giving directions, telling the history and legends of the islands & providing music & entertainment along the way. It really enhances our experience in Hawaii!
