We love Shaka Guide and recommend to all of our friends. If you rent a car, take advantage of seeing more and hearing more than you would ever imagine on your vacation! I’d give it 10 stars if I could.

Somewhat useful

SDJour | May 2022
I bought three or four of the tours since I knew that I would have a car my first time in Hawaii and that I would be staying far from the crowd. I only used one, the Circle Island Tour, and was disappointed. The man narrating was annoying with his forced laughs and poor jokes. In addition, there were some stops that I missed because I was not told soon enough where to turn. I am giving two stars because I did learn about two nice sites on the tour. However, I passed a couple of state and national recreation sites that were not mentioned at all.
