Customer Reviews

Was an amazing way to get us oriented to oahu once we arrived. And was an amazingly "chill" way to deal with jet lag on our first full day on the island. Such a rich source of trivia and cultural perspective too.

First and foremost, BRING YOUR CHARGER WITH! If you don't download this app, you're truly missing out on the best self guided tour of your vacation. We chose the North Shore Loop Tour for Oahu. From the great narration, local music, little tidbits of info about the stops, and even included off the beaten path gems of pure Hawaiian greatness along the way. Well worth the money to jump in the car, connect to the stereo, hit play, and go. We spent 9 solid hours driving and stopping along the way!

Best money spent on vacation!

We used this tour app on Oahu (1 trip) and Maui (3 trips). I wished they had these for everywhere we vacation. The directions are clear, the background information and history is extremely interesting, and the background music really sets the mood. Don’t hesitate to buy these if going to Hawaii or anyplace that these tours are offered. You will not be disappointed.
