Must do!

We had a little trouble setting up this app and were about to throw the towel in…I am SO GLAD we didn’t! We called the support line where they gave us prompt instructions to restore the app, and we were good to go in no time. The Legendary North Shore Loop in Oahu was so informative and gave us a full day of activities to explore. We are looking at the other locations to plan our next vacation because we can’t wait to see what else this app has to offer!

Lots of great tips

Used Shaka for Grand Circle Island Tour in Oahu and it was awesome. Lots of great tid bits and stops. Highly recommend for this tour. However, would not recommend for Highway to Hana. Our two favorite stops of the day: the Hana Lava Tube and the Hana Farm Matket were not mentioned. And, many of the parking and pull over options were too late and we were already past them or right next to them and it was too late to stop. Also, the music between tips was sometimes a bit too sleepy.

This is a fantastic app for touring. We used one for Oahu and all the possible tours on the big island. While some facts and stories are repeated it works amazingly well. I cannot imagine touring without Shaka it is worth more than the cost.
