Ratings and Reviews
Best app ever!
I purchased both the North Shore and the Circle Island tours in Oahu and 2 of the Hana Tours and the Haleakala tour in Maui. In would have given them 5 stars just on customer service, I had some questions and send them an email before we came to Hawaii and I was impressed by how Andrew replied to all my emails and how helpful he was. So 5 stars before I even used the app. Now that I actually did the tours I would give them 10 stars if it was available. This was our second time in Hawaii last time we used Gipsy Guide, it was ok but Shaka blew them out of the water. “Eddie” as we call it took us to places that you don't read about on blogs or find in Pinterest, there were a couple of places we went to that we were the only tourists, in some we were the only ones there. There was a lookout point at Haleakala (this is our second time there) that Eddie told us to stop at, again we were the only car in the parking lot, and this was the best look out in history, the view were breathtaking, and the pictures.. WOW, It was awesome! We keep saying, Hey, Eddie would go LOL.
Thank you Shaka Guide 🤙🏻🤙🏻
Shootz brah, so glad you enjoyed the tour! We work hard so that you can enjoy your vacation. Eddie would go. Aloha.
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?
