As you cruise along, listen to stories of the park’s history as well as rich Hawaiian legends such as Maui, da’ Hawaiian Superman and so much more.
WEST MAUI TOUR
Take a trip around the West Maui mountains traveling along the Honoapi'ilani and the Kalehiki highways in a loop. Drive through the Historic old town of Lahaina, the famous resorts of Ka'anapali and Kapalua, before checking out an awesome blowhole!

Ratings and Reviews
Just awesome...the tour guide made us feel like Ohana!
This app was so helpful. We did this tour on our first day in Maui and actually missed our “tour guide’s voice” the rest of our trip. (We even gave him our own name “Oggie” because I didn’t read the email entirely to the bottom to find out his real name lol). He was funny, accurate and so informative. My new fiancé =) was even debating on when to propose during this trip and because of something that was mentioned he found exactly when and where to propose. We didn’t get to make it to all the stops but we followed the tour’s advice and made it to all of the most spectacular sites. Time flew by rather quickly and because of his advice we were able to make the most of our time. For the rest of my trip, I even recommended this app to other tourists and visitors who were planning to do the Road to Hana. It definitely beat being on a tour bus. This gave us guidance but also the freedom to come and go as we pleased. On the drive back to our hotel, the app also gave us such an entertaining and valuable history about Maui and Hawaii. We are so grateful we used this app, we really got the whole package with this app. Not only did it guide us on the Road to Hana but it guided the road to my boyfriend’s proposal! =) Thank you Shaka Maui! You made all the difference in our trip! Until next time...Mahalo! - C&E
The valet at our hotel asked what we were doing that day as he pulled up our car. When we mentioned we were driving the road to Hana, he recommended this app. It MADE our trip perfect. It felt like we had the most experienced tour guide in the world with us. In addition to being very detailed and explaining each site we were coming up to, it also made recommendations on when to stop and when to keep driving (“this waterfall is ok, but you will see much better in 30 minutes...recommend not stopping“), it was also smart and funny! If you drove past a scenic spot the app knew this because the timing of the GPS indicated we kept moving, so it would say “ok, so I guess you didn’t want to see that”. Kept us engaged for 6 or 8 hours as we drove along. At one point we stopped at an overlook after we just heard the story of a church built with coral and there was a tourist with their tour guide standing next to us, and he was stumbling for a good explanation about the church, so I just started to repeat all that I just heard on the app and the tourist asked how I knew all that, and I explained about the great app while the tour guide (who knew next to nothing and was really just an overpaid Uber driver) scowled at me! Anyway, GREAT app!

Must have for anyone planning a trip on the Hana Highway. (Even if you already have a great book about Maui (e.g. "Maui Revealed"). It really was like having a tour guide in your car. Since cell service is basically non-existent through the rainforest, it was nice that this worked without data. The tour guide's instructions for pull outs were SPOT ON, and he gave good advice on what was not to be missed and what you could skip for the sake of time. We used this app in addition to the book "Maui Revealed" and felt it vastly improved our trip. You don't want to spend time with your head down in a book during this tour for a couple of reasons. 1) You could miss something, and 2) you could get car sick. So if you have that book and think you don't need this... you may want to reconsider.
IMPORTANT: Don't forget to download the app AND the tour (purchased in-app after it installs) before you go. It takes a while for the tour to install, and I had to give it several attempts because of the spotty internet service at the resort. I recommend doing it a day or two in advance (or at home using your own wireless network before leaving for your vacation).
