Great app! Very informative commentary to accompany our drive round the volcanoes national park and advise of good stopping points as well as Hawaiian culture. Loved the Hawaiian tunes in between too!

Extremely useful app

We used this app for both the Road to Hana in Maui and Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island. I can’t begin to tell you how much it helped us in making decisions on where to stop on each tour. It is well worth the money!

This app was amazing, highly recommend! They made it super easy to use, gave us directions, tips like restroom stops and where to stop/photo ops, and lots of history and knowledge which allowed us to tour the Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park at our own pace but still learned a lot along the way. It was so fun, will now be looking for more Shaka Guide tours for our trip.
