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.
