  • Waimea Shaka audiodrive guide

    By gutkam
    Had guests with us who had never been to Kauai. They liked hearing about the history of stuff so downloaded the Waimea guide. Worked out well with the guide giving us accurate directions and giving us informative and entertaining info. Made the drive go quickly. Our guests loved it and to be truthful even though I’ve been to Kauai many times I loved it as well and learned a lot about Kauai as well. Definitely recommend! Downloading the Hanalei app for the next drive tour. For the price of a 2 scoops ice cream cone at lamperts $6, really worth it
  • Love this app

    By Pono Explorer
    We heard about this app from other guests on the island & thought we’d give it a try. We did the Weimea & Nāpali Tour on Kauai. This is a great way to experience various parts of the island. You can go at your own pace, stop when you want, explore at your leisure. Although we have done this drive several times before on our own, we were able to see some great stuff with the Shaka Guide hat we hadn’t seen before. The snippets of history, geography & all kinds of trivia keeps it very interesting in between stops. They’ve even included some restroom stops. Make sure to allow plenty of time to complete the tour, don’t forget your phone charger & connecting your phone through you car stereo is a definite plus for the enhanced audio.
  • Great investment!

    Shaka app truly made our tour of Kauai more interesting as well as relaxing. Huge perk was the aptly selected bits of music and historical information. We also liked going off the main highways to some scenic spots. Best investment for our trip!
  • Great tour

    My wife and I absolutely loved this self guided tour. We used this app on all the islands we visited and every single time was amazing. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a fun day of sight seeing and hiking.
  • Review of Kauai

    By Chgsrun
    Good app but a little disappointed that you have to buy the island tour in separate tours. The app that we used in Maui gave the whole island for one price. I did like the music on this app though - nice touch.
  • GREAT App!

    By Retired musician
    We very rarely pay for an app, but on a whim we tried Shaka’s Road to Hana tour on Maui. We were hooked! It really is like having a tour guide in your car, one that is both entertaining and informative. The app worked well for us, used our phone GPS instead of data, and provided helpful options to preview and review the tour. We ended up buying their tours for everywhere we went—Haleakalā, Kauai’s Waimea Canyon and North Shore, and the Big Island’s Volcanoes National Park. We tried the competitor app (GyPSy) for circling the Big Island and found it dry and not as user-friendly. Shaka is WAY better. Can’t say enough about the Shaka tours. Enthusiastically recommend!
  • Exceptional App

    By Sold on it
    This is the first time I have used a driving tour app and I am so impressed. The best part is the built in GPS and guide that give great directions and give you plenty of time to make turns, etc. I love the suggestions for places to stop for snacks, lunch, and shopping. It has been so nice to tour on our own while vacationing, yet feel like we have a tour guide right there in the car with us. It has given us more confidence to travel on our own. And we will definitely use this app again. Very easy to use!!
  • Best part of our trip so far!

    By Tx2boymom
    We’ve been on the Kauai for 3 days - and unfortunately have had a lot of rain! Not the kind of weather to sit by the pool or beach and relax... so we decide to get out and explore. I googled Kauai driving map and stumbled on this app and decided to check it out. We figured it was worth trying to go to another area of the island looking for some sun - and if no sun was to be found at least we were out seeing something new! What a great decision. We’ve now done all 3 Kauai tours and it’s been the best part of our vacation. The tours are fun, informative, and include great little stops that we would have never found had we not taken the tour. Tours are easy to follow with great and detailed spoken instructions. Even little tips like ‘pull over here and look for someplace to park - because if you go farther down the road it’s difficult to turn around.’ The tour guide is funny and engaging - sharing a great amount of history and interesting anecdotes as you follow the route. I highly recommend investing the minimal cost to purchase the tours - all 3 have been great!!
