“Uncle Shaka” was an Amazing guide!!

I don’t usually leave reviews (or buy apps) but this one is amazing. Our first time to Oahu and we purchased both. Perfect guidance and loved the little tidbits of info, suggestions and humor as we passed areas. (No constant talking though). We were so impressed by the easy to follow directions and I lost track how many times we said we loved the app and what a great purchase it was. We would never have been able to plan out the routes as well on our own. We usually take hop on/off buses in new cities and this was similar with the narration and ability to see all the hot spots (and some secret ones!) in a nice loop without a bunch of backtracking. We did the tours in 3 VERY full days but had we stopped and actually swam at the beaches and did the full tours at Dole etc. it easily could have been a week or more worth of activities. We would have spent $500+ on a couple days of tour buses to see the places we were able to go to on our own with this app plus we could do it in our own time. The app literally guided us from the road in front of our hotel to the destinations and back. Buy it- you won’t regret it.

Prittyer than you! ,

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 🤙🏻🤙🏻

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.
