What a wonderful app! Such a breeze! Drive slow so you don't miss the stops! You can toggle the music on and off. I did waimea canyon and it was spectacular!

You must get this app!

I cannot say enough good things about this app for tours in Hawaii! My husband and I are in Kauai and followed two of the audio tours. You get the app for free and then you pay for the audio tours – – $19.99 for one or $29.99 for the bundle of three. If you visit all the islands, you can bundle, all of the islands for, I think, $69. We followed one up the north shore and visited little-known beaches and hikes, had the best poke bowl I’ve ever had, and heard stories of legends, culture and history. My husband did the Waimea Canyon tour and loved it as well! This is a great way to explore the island at your own pace doing what you want to do. The guide is knowledgeable and fun to listen to!

Perfect tour for our trip to Hawaii

Downloaded the tour for Waimea Canyon and was very glad I did! The tour was excellent. The guide was a little silly. Overall, a great day in Kaua’i.

We’ll advise you on where to park during the tour, and if there are no spots available, just wait for a spot to open up.
