      Guide with nice voice
      Alexandra_K, Aug 2022
      It was really good. We didn’t spend much money and still had guide with us on journey. The guy had really pleasant voice and he was sometimes even funny tho. (to make sure - our guide was just recorded voice in mobile app). It was really helpfull because we had map, music and lot of interesting informations with us. I recommend this guide!
      Best way to tour Hawaii
      Sherri_L, Aug 2022
      This was a wonderful way for our family to go on our own adventure without breaking the bank. We saw the amazing sights of the volcano at our own pace and spent our time only where we wanted to.
      Great app
      Patty_G, Jul 2022
      This self guided tour app was awesome. It saved us tones of money and easy to navigate. We did not have to worry about big crowds and toured at our on pace. We will diffidently be using this app again when we visit different cities.

      Bad experience. Could not download the offline GPS, and office was closed and could not contact anyone to help us.

      Don’t buy
      Kevin_C, Apr 2022
      Poor app design, hard to follow, no map and directions between the stops. Totally useless. I ended up using the NPS app which is more helpful and free.
      Convenient and informative
      Jessica_W, Apr 2022
      The guide helped us narrow down the stops to the most impactful ones, and helped us navigate the various closures throughout the park. We would have been on a bit of a wild goose chase otherwise.
      Beautiful foliage!
      Jessica_P, Apr 2022
      The hikes were very beautiful, I recommend getting to the park early so that you can take your time and enjoy the sunlight. Lava tubes were very fun!

      Great driving tour
      MarieClaude_R, Apr 2022
      Great entertainment while visiting the Volcanos National Park! I liked the stories. Good for solo trip.

      Totally worth the money !
      Vishwaroop_C, Apr 2022
      Glad we bought this audio tour. Made exploring the Volcano National park a lot of fun. We wouldn’t have done some of the hikes had we not taken this tour and would have missed some amazing sights. Also the tour includes some nice Hawaiian stories and history that we enjoyed listening to.
      Great self guided tour
      Eric_C, Mar 2022
      This really is a great tour and the value is amazing. 10 years ago I was here and paid for a professional tour. We actually did a lot more and found out more with this self guided tour and at your own pace, can't beat that!
      Great Tour! A full day!
      Debora_P, Mar 2022
      Tour worked well with few glitches (mostly user). If you do the volcano tour when he says you’re half way, it seemed to us that we were much further than half way and finishing the tour was the best decision we made. The end takes you to the Lava’s end at the Pacific Ocean. Spectacular! And, for us, the best part of the tour!
      Mostly good but beware of the Pu'u Loa hike
      Lisa_T, Mar 2022
      This was a pretty cool tour for the most part. It tracked which audio to play through the GPS and shared all kinds of stories about the history of the volcanoes. The only sore part of the trip was when the guide recommended a 20-minute hike to see some old Hawaiian pictographs and did not say it was for experienced hikers only. We ended up doing a very dangerous climb over steep rocks in heavy winds that was not at all worth it to see a few old carvings.

      Volcano driving tour
      Robert_D, Feb 2022
      Definitely take this driving tour , go early, all the way to end, lava crater and down to ocean and the arch. Little hard to get started on your phone, but great once set up

      Rebecca_H, Jan 2022
      It was nice to have the audible with us in the car. The marking of things is not that great and there isn’t any explanation along the way so this is super helpful!

      Very good
      XIAOHONG_T, Dec 2021
      This audio tour was really worth the money. It is convenient to use and the audio is timed well. The guide is funny and has good recommendations for what to stop and look at. Highly recommended.
      Great GPS guided tour
      Derek_M, Nov 2021
      What a great idea! Once we were able to download the app with the maps it was pretty easy. The guide was quirky funny and honest. Highly recommend this tour.!

      Best part of our trip!
      Mary_M, Aug 2021
      This was one of the best decisions we made on our Hawaii trip. We did several of the Shaka guide driving tours. So much nicer than taking a guided tour in a bus. Very flexible and no technical glitches!

      Mahalo for your review and recommendation. Hope to see you and your family again on more Shaka Guide adventures on the islands! 🤙😍🤙

      Not worth downloading
      Rachael_S, Aug 2021
      We downloaded this app to help navigate the volcanoes national park. The app had a few locations for sites that were incorrect, and not the most clear instructions/information about the sites you are seeing. Wouldn't recommend downloading- the map provided for free upon arrival is a better option.
      Response from Host, Sep 2021
      I'm sorry to hear you were not able to enjoy your Shaka Guide tour. We'd love to hear more about your feedback and hear what you think we could improve on the app and tour. Kindly email us more info about your experience at and also so we can help you get a refund.
