Awesome app!! We stopped at many places we wouldn't have if we didn't have this app. Great stories about the areas we were in and very awesome music that really set the mood for travel. Worth the price for the tours. Will use again and again. My wife wants one for Korea but this is only for the islands. If you're traveling to the islands and are driving, this is a must have. You won't be disappointed. Much mahalos.

Really a great experience. The app is meant to go in order, so when you do areas that are out and back, you might, say, pass point 8, learn something, and then pass point 41 on the way to 9. The app is smart enough not to mess up. we really enjoyed the advice also. There are some spots we skipped at the apps suggestion, and came back because we had time. Funny enough, the app was right to skip! Incredibly well written, and we can't wait to try more tours. This was WELL worth the money!

Horrible App! Spent half a day installing and trying to get it to work. The system was locked in a loop of "resume tour" and "audio check." When you tried to listen to individual locations, the narrator fades out after a minute. The last location tried the app was trying to send us to the coast of Africa. Bought the 5 tour package for the Big Island. Waste of time and energy. Called customer service and they told me to send an email for a refund.

So sorry to hear you were not able to enjoy your Shaka Guide tour. Wish you would have contacted us at that time so we could have helped you set up the app and tour correctly and guide you in getting started properly so all you needed was to just drive following the numbers. Email us your receipt at aloha@shakaguide.com for a refund.
