Make sure to download the drives ahead of time because there will not be service! The drive did a great job throwing in facts, music, and made me feel like I was really getting the best experience out of the drive. Though he was a little cheesy at times, I still really loved it! I felt safe and comfortable with this audio guiding me around the roads. 100% recommend this for anyone who making the trip to Hana!

This was Amazing! We did this drive 26 years ago on our honeymoon and now to have a guide to help us understand everything we were seeing is beyond!!! And the history lesson…yes please and thank you. It helped us to appreciate everything we saw and experienced. This wonderland called Hawaii is a place to be cherished and the Shaka guide enhanced that. Thank you thank you thank you!

Great tour. So much to see and do. Tour comes with five different tours that never expires. The “tour guide” had a sense of humor and very knowledge. If you’re looking for a tour, which you can do at your own pace, i highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful tour with Holly. She was very informative and great sense of humor. One of the stops was unavailable but she replaced it with a vodka tour which was a good trade. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

A must have if going to Maui. You really get the most out of your trip. So many fun adventures!!!!
