Made Kauai even better!

This is our third trip to Kauai in the past 6 years. This time we used the Shaka Guide app and did all four tours. We saw so many things we didn’t see before. The history, legends, and traditions shared in the stories along the way brought the island to life in a whole knew way.

Made the Road to Hana even more fun. Great info and a useful map!
