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.

Where is Waimea Canyon?

Waimea Canyon is located on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Often referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," it is situated on the western side of the island, near the town of Waimea.

How was Waimea Canyon formed?

Waimea Canyon was formed through millions of years of erosion by the Waimea River and its tributaries. The constant flow of water carved through the volcanic rock layers creates the deep and colorful canyon we see today.

How to see Waimea Canyon?

There are several ways to view Waimea Canyon. Take a guided tour like Shaka Guide’s self-guided Waimea Canyon and Na Pali driving tour. You’ll get turn-by-turn directions to popular spots, music, and stories along the way. You can also view Waimea...

What is an Audio Tour Guide?

Think of us as your personal tour guide in an app. Our tours provide everything a guided tour does, but with the freedom to explore on your terms. Here’s how it works:

  • Listen to stories, get local insights, visit must-see stops and get turn-by-turn navigation.
