Customer Reviews:

Highly recommend this app!

We purchased both the half island and full island Oahu tours and the app took us to all the great places and delivered great history on Hawaii. Will be purchasing Shaka tours for the other islands when I return to Hawaii. Great job on making the app! It truly helped make my vacation perfect without having to spend too much time studying maps, or making sure I had a list of all the places I wanted to visit.

Fun Tour!


Entertaining and educational. My wife, young sons and I enjoyed the tour. The music and narrative are great. Couldn't help but smile as we drove around listening. Really a bargain for what you get!

Highly recommend!

Shaka tours helped guide me through well known sites as well as those off the beaten path. Love the history narrations!

Day well spent

This guide paid for itself 100 times over. We could have spent hundreds on a guide or a tour bus, instead we spent what it would cost for a coffee and had a day to remember!
