About The Tour

Visiting Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills offers an unforgettable blend of American history and natural beauty. Mount Rushmore's colossal presidential faces, carved into granite, inspire awe and patriotism, with the site providing insightful exhibits and trails for closer exploration. Nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota, the area features lush forests, rugged landscapes, and diverse wildlife.

Used the Shaka app for the Classic Road to Hana. This was so informative but also in an enjoyably entertaining way! Would have missed so much without it. Highly recommend!!

Can’t recommend the Shaka Guide enough! Such fun, so informative, and so comprehensive when it comes to the actual tours. We used the Shaka Guide to tour Oah’u and Maui and are so glad we did. We learned a ton about Hawaiian history and culture and were led to some of the most incredible spots, even some off the beaten path. Who wants to spend hours on a bus with strangers and a tight schedule? Not us! And thanks to Shaka Giide tours, we didn’t need to. This app is genius! Download the tours! You’ll be glad you did!

Amazing App!

Just make sure that you follow the numbers in chronological order from where you are starting from. If you don’t begin at one of the tour starting points you’ll miss a few stories, but you’ll still have a great experience.
