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

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).

This tour was essential.

We drove the full loop to Hana and back yesterday. We had a guide book, but this app was essential. There are so many options and stops which do not have any signs or markers. The app lets you know in advance and tells you where to stop. For example, there is a lava tube cave, which is unmarked and on the road to Hana. No cars were stopped there and it was just a small hole in the ground, until you go inside. The detour to Nahiku was worth the time. In addition to an incredible view of the shore and crashing waves, we walked down the rapids to a beautiful crystal clear pool. Don’t let the closed, dilapidated bridge scare you off from proceeding. My wife loved the wild pig which darted across this isolated road in front of our Jeep. The “rental car-violating” portion of the drive was not too bad (My wife tolerated it...which says a lot.). In addition to sharing a single lane with oncoming cars, at one point our Jeep was surrounded by cattle. It was like running with the bulls in Pamplona. The music and stories kept us amused during the white-knuckle driving times of this 12-hour day. We had a great time, but could not have done it without the guidance of this app.
