Really glad we went with Shaka

Thrilled Google Tasks User | July 2022
We found the app easy to use and very well thought out. There are lots of options for which way to do the tour including skipping around and going in reverse order. The tour guide also told some very interesting stories and was really informative about what we were seeing. The voice-over coordinated with our location very well and integrated well with Google maps (not so much with Apple Maps as it dropped out of the maps app unexpectedly). Highly recommend this app, particularly the 5-tour price discount.

Just great!

We completed all 5 tours for about a week!! A lot of fun, easy navigation, local music and very educational. Great work on the app!

Positive experience. Once we figured out how to use it in the correct order it was informative. We recommend it. We suggest you tinker with it prior to trying to use it for a better experience. And, definitely have one person driving and another person doing the tour.
