We named him "Shaka"


Just listen to Shaka (even if it is a hand signal), he'll tell you where to go!! We loved the large circle tour and we'll likely get the south tour tomorrow before we go to the airport.

We're on the main island for a wedding that was on the north shore in Laie. Since we wanted to hit the dole plantation on the way back, it made sense to buy the tour for $5. While at the wedding, it was pretty fun sharing all the cool information that Shaka had told us up to that point. We met back with our group at Waimea and told them that we had visited the ceremonial grounds where human sacrafices had taken place, others finally asked, "where are you getting this information?" (Shaka!).

I have the same complaint of the odd no sound spots, but the views certainly compensate for the silence. Also, it may have just been the USB connectivity in the car, but the last 1 or 2 seconds of the directions seemed to cut out, which at some points, included critical driving directions. Fortunately, we didn't get lost, and the map is easy to follow in case you somehow miss a turn.

Great guide! Will definitely buy another island in the future!


Shaka OAHU was a great guide. This was my 7th trip to Oahu in the last 12 months, but since my wife was coming along this time, we decided to grab the app to learn more about the island. The tour was great (very similar to what I did myself previously using the rental car map books), but the narration and GPS guidance was really worth the extra few dollars I spent on the app.

Haven't been here many times, I knew most of the "big ticket" items to see, but the app took us to a couple "off-the-path" places that we really loved (like the waterfall off Pali in the Southern Island tour).

The only complain I had was that there are parts where there are "blanks" (no narration and no music). Would be great if they had a simple "Hawaiian music" loop that plays when you are between tour spots for a little driving music. Since it uses my iPhone while driving, I couldn't play my own music, either. Otherwise, a great app and I hope they make a few more, maybe some walking tours through Waikiki or Honolulu?

Fantastic App


This app was amazing!! I bought the Oahu Island Circle tour on a whim after renting a car in Waikiki. The directions were clear and easy to follow and the stories were informative and delightful. The narrator had a wonderful personality. What I would say, however ... is that I wasn’t really clear on how to “start” the app to get t the narrating. We basically drove until we actually got on the route (H1 West) and then all of a sudden the guided part of the app started right up!! It was seamless once you get n the tour path ... but until then ... it seemed like we were kind of on our own. We got the app literally as we were walking down to the rental ... so really didn’t put too much thought into reading directions.

Once we “got it” - we LOVED the thoughtful, easy directions, and will use Shaka guides in the future when touring Hawaii. BTW - this saved us hundreds as compared to getting a private tour!!! We rented a convertible Mustang and had a blast with this app.
