  • Complete waste of money

    App either didn’t work properly (driving for miles past many landmarks along Chain of Craters Rd. w/o any audio commentary) or else it offered useless guided info (look to your left and you’ll see something you really don’t need a guide to point out because there’s visible signs and dozens of cars pulled over). Spend 15 minutes online or 5 minutes chatting w a park ranger and a printed VNP map and you’ll do just as well, if not better. Don’t bother wasting your money on this.
  • Really fun, but I want more!

    By angiemabobber
    This was a fun (in a cheesy way) tour through the Volcano National Park. I wish that there were other tour options for the big island though. Right now, the national park tour is it - even though the big island has so so much to offer! Get to it Shaka!
  • Mahalo!

    We enjoyed using Shaka Guide on Maui and Kauai and we were really looking forward to downloading a tour on the Big Island but unfortunately Volcanoes National Park is closed due to the Kilauea eruptions and earthquakes. No fault to Shaka Guide for this inconvenience, but we would have loved to see another tour option to use on the Big Island.
  • No Tours of Hilo, Kona or Saddleback Road?

    By nutmegtella
    How sad your one tour is not available due to the volcano being a spoil sport. After your Kauai tours, we were hoping for something for Hilo, Saddleback or Kona areas! Sigh. Please add for others who are interested in this amazing island! For anyone wanting to get close as you can to the volcano, you can see a beautiful sight of the lava reflected in the clouds if you drive up to Pahoa Middle School. There’s a church with a mini church in front of it. From the grass in front of the church you have the best view. Really spectacular after sunset! The tiny coqui frogs were interesting addition since we were here last. Much louder and more plentiful than chickens in West Kapa’a! Mahalo for da kine and ono tours in Kauai, please make more for the Big Island! 🤞🤙

    Came upon this app as I was preparing for our Hawaii vacation. Spent $6 total as compared to 4 people x $75 for a tour group. It was amazing! So informative and the GPS timing with the voice was spot on. Amazing App! I hope these are available every place I go! Enabled us to take our time and fantastic information to learn as well as great ideas to stop and eat ! Thank you Shaka - really great!
  • Weak

    By dudr4511
    Super weak. The only hung it talks about is volcano national park
  • Awesome application

    By Ronen and Melu
    We used the Road to Hana first when visiting Maui and being so useful we decided to purchase the Big Island and Ohau for the next portion of out trip. Both works very well. Highly recommended.

    Disappointing-got all kinds of help and still couldn’t get in.
  • Very good

    This guide of Volcano National Park was great. It was spot on with every point of interest and showed all the main places to see. It even showed some sights that there are absolutely no signs for that were awesome. In between points of interest it gave a history of Hawaiian culture. The GPS and offline maps were in perfect sync and it even knew which way you were driving in case you turned around to head back in a different spot than planned. Probably the best purchase I have ever made on the App Store.
