Fabulous App!

Tdksterling | June 2022
This app made our trip to Kauai AMAZING!! The back stories were fascinating and the directions were pretty easy to follow. We downloaded all four tours and we didn’t do everything on any of them but we did 80% of each one. We found amazing beaches, went on some stunning hikes and we loved stopping and eating local food. My husband has been to Kauai two other times and he said saw and learned more on this trip than the other two combined. I highly recommend it..just do the activities that work for you, your timeline, and what you want from it…after all, it is your vacation! Enjoy!

The tours were wonderful. We loved doing them on our own at our own pace. The music and information is great. We would have never found these places on our own. The driving directions were great.

The tours are awesome and include a wide variety of options - something for everyone. Especially love the cultural stories driving between stops. We did and saw so much more with Shaka than we could have on our own.
