We did all the Tours on Kauai, Oahu and Big Island. It was really great, entertaining and most important all the information you need is provided. Worked perfectly in offline mode.

Awesome Adventures at your Pace

This app is well worth the cost, especially compared to bus tours. We got the Oahu tour bundle. You will need a vehicle, unless you plan to use the walking tours only. We used it on the Oahu’s Grand circle island tour, as well as Honolulu’s backyard tour. It was easy to load and directions were great. Especially enjoyed the history lessons and sights we probably would not have viewed otherwise. You go at your own pace, skip what you want, stop where you want. Can’t say enough about the value of this app. The only glitch I noticed was when using the iPhone camera to take photos, sometimes the app froze and a had to restart it, but it picked up where I had left off, so not too inconvenient. We plan to use again in a return visit. Thanks!
