So I’m a concierge in Kaanapali and I actually refer people to this site nearly every day and I wanted to give it a try.. wish we could’ve done it for free!!! So we did the reverse route and there were multiple times where it got cut off and then it just wouldn’t play at all after Venus pools and for $20 I expected a lot more. I’m gonna try Gypsy and if their a better experience then that’s who I’ll refer🤙🏽🤙🏽🤙🏽 Mahalo for the experience Shaka guide🤙🏽

Absolutely worth it

MLBUser | July 2022
Truly can’t say enough about how wonderful this app is. We had initially downloaded it for the Road to Hana tour, but also ended up listening to the Sunrise Haleakala tour and the West Maui tour. We really enjoyed the recommendations for spots to see as well as the great stories, history, and music in the app. The tour guide really did feel like another buddy in the car! We even ended up changing our plans and spending additional time in upcountry Maui after the app recommended visiting Makawao after the sunrise at Haleakala. While there a local artist gave us a hand drawn map of Kula, which we used as a guide for the rest of the day. Truly a unique experience that we would not have had without this app. Would recommend getting the tour bundle because it is cheaper and you will want to use it! My only suggestion for improvement is that sometimes the driving directions come a little too close to the turns, which can be a little stressful. We had google maps up in the car as well so we could try to guess the directions before they popped up. Will be recommending this app to everyone in the future!
