Your Maui experience is not complete without Shaka Guide’s Road to Hana Tour. Let this app guide you the entire 42 mile stretch of road to Hana and back. On this epic journey you will discover:

* Great little hikes,
* Off-the-beaten-path swimming holes,
* Beautiful White, Red and Black sandy beaches

Similar to the Classic version except instead of returning the way you came, it takes you around the island, allowing you to see both the dry and wet side of the island! Note that Loop and Reverse are the same tours except start and end completely opposite to each other.

Now with Sunrise and Sunset options! The tour accompanies you up to the summit of the Haleakala Volcanic Crater and back, stopping at all the best viewpoints and hikes along the way. 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.

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! Then come with us as we wind along the high sea cliff roads, finishing the tour in the lush Iao Valley rainforest.

Excellent guide!!!

I debated between signing up for a tour or doing the drive myself since I have a car. I though buying a tour would be safer for a female lone traveler like myself but the tours are so expensive! I decided to download the app & took the reverse route for a fraction of money that tours are charging . I made the best decision in doing that! The app. goes over a lot of details esp. safety and timing . I had my own private guide in the car with me along the way. I even took a few wrong turns and it brought be back on track. It kept me on track with the time too, making me decide which stops to make or not . I left Paia at 8:00 am and was back safely before 6:00 , plenty of daylight! I have to tell you though , the guide is very concerned about your safety and the first part of the tour will warn you about driving through unpaved roads as the rental agencies strongly discourages it! I had to pull over and ask a tour bus driver (parked in one of their stops) if he thinks I’ll make it with the car I have. A regular 4 door sedan. Driver said don’t worry I’ll be ok. Well, I went through those roads with a sedan and did just fine ! I highly recommend this app for anyone doing the road to Hana! I learned so much about the history of Hawaii along the way and the music they played in between points are impeccable! I had the best day in Maui today ! Thanks Shaka app for a stress free, and VERY economical way to the road to Hana!

No planning necessary!

We recently used the Shaka app to take multiple tours on Maui, Oahu and the Big Island and they totally made our trip! Very easy to use and incredibly informative, they made planning our day trips a breeze. In fact, no planning was necessary because they tell you exactly where to stop and what to do. It came in especially handy on the Road to Hana where there is way more to potentially do and see than you can get done in a day. Also loved the Haleakalā sunrise, North Shore Oahu, Volcanos National Park and Kohala Coast tours. There was no fear of missing out knowing that the Shaka Guide would take us to the best attractions and give an honest assessment of which ones could be skipped. We felt like we got way more out of our travels than if we were to just drive around looking at stuff. We and our kids learned a ton about Hawaiian history and culture and there was no need to mess with maps or cumbersome 200 page guidebooks. Works best if you have a rental car than can stream through the stereo via Bluetooth. Our rental Jeeps on two of the islands didn’t have this and it would not play properly through a USB connection or at all through a portable Bluetooth speaker for some reason. Maybe a technical issue to resolve but certainly not major - we just listened through the phone speaker and kept it charged. Very highly recommend.

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
