  • Great app

    By Dave VL2
    My wife planned our trip using a few guide books. We were on the big island for nearly 2 weeks and even though we had the books this app was on point. Had a lot of the same info but some hidden gems the books missed and having all the history and music while driving was great. I never spend money on apps so to spend $20 for all the routes on the big island was something I was hesitant to do but no regrets. Made our trip around the island more enjoyable.
  • Awesome!

    We purchased the Big Island bundle of tours and they are awesome. There us so much offered that you would not find in tour books. We are seeing much more of the island off the beaten path at a fraction of the cost of commercial tours. Thanks Shaka!
  • Another great app for the big island

    Used the Shaka app for Maui and it was great. This one was great as well for the Big Island. Again the ability to use gps maps with no cell service and excellent guide/stories made the drives enjoyable and safe.

    My friends recommended me one of these apps after they’ve been to Hawaii. So, I checked all of the 4 applications for Oahu, Maui, Big Island and Kauai, since I had a cruise around all these islands. I was happy to find out these guys made it easy for travelers to hear local history, must see places and easy navigation, especially with limited time to spend on each island. I bought the packages and could easily combine some of the tours, depending on our route. Great music, nice jokes and easy planning for us, which is a lot of work! Mahalo very mucho!

    This App was fantastic! Two couples in the Jeep touring the Big Island with Shaka Guide was amazing! This app is totally worth the purchase and possibly the best 20 Bucks we spent on this trip!

    We have been using your app in Maui and now the Big Island. We have learned so much of the Hawaiian history and culture from your many stories. The numerous sights we have seen have been amazing and we feel that we are truly getting the best view of Hawai’i. We will be continuing on using your app in Oahu next. We are so happy that we found your app! Mahalo!
  • Exciting

    I found this App by accident and it was the best surprise I could get. This App helped us get around the big island at our own pace. I recommend the App for anyone visiting the island.
  • Shaka Guide is Awesome!

    By Cali Travelers
    Shaka Guide is very informative. We loved listening to him on our outings. The history lessons were the best. He has so much additional information that is so helpful, for example advising us not to take the Jeep off road to the Green Sand Beach as it would not be covered by our insurance coverage. His recommends are on point. The best $19.99 I’ve spent on vacation.
  • A Must Have for Independent Tourists

    By NaGeuNae
    I used the entire set of the Shaka Guide for the Big Island and it made my and my husband’s driving all around so much more enjoyable, safe and educational with great information and music. It gave us freedom to go at our own pace and take as much or little time at various places depending on our interests and time. We had a whole week, so the whole set was useful and then we went back to some of the places to spend more time on another day. If you have a very limited time, then get a full day for North Island Loop or South Island Loop. Each loop does take almost 12 hours. If one is prone to motion sickness, then prepare for it before taking off. Some roads are quite narrow and curvy. Thanks for helping us create wonderful memories of the Big Island of Hawaii!
