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!

It is a good way of navigating on yoir own. I liked it. Did not finish wntire trip. Way too long and winding roads looked the same at some point. Farthest i went it is Hana Beach.

I just loved it ! Was very useful especially since there is no one on the road to help with directions to good spots !

Very reassuring when you know you are going the right way and are told all the history
