We’ve done the road to Hana several times. A friend suggested this app and we have to say, it was well worth it. We stopped at so many cool places we wouldn’t have known about without the app.

Awesome addition to our touring of Hawaii

We used the Shaka guides in Hawaii and found them to be such a great addition to our car rides. The guides directed us to the best spots to visit with lots of interesting stories and music along the way. Super app! Highly recommend it for touring the Hawaiian Islands.
