    Truly amazing app / tour guide. The Road to Hana Tour was having a polished sophisticated knowledgeable local guide with you for the whole day. The app offered options and back stories about all the landmarks and spots along the way. I highly recommend the app. I hope this developer expands their gps based app offerings to other places in other countries.
  • Must use tool for Road to Hana

    By NDeLown
    This app is filled with many fascinating details and historic stories that would probably never be discussed in a regular tour! The price and privacy makes this even better! The music provided also adds some great gusto to the drive! Thank you so much! So glad I found this app! We are actually sad that it’s over and miss the Shaka guy!
  • Essential

    By stevelys
    This app is just a great demonstration of how technology can actually make our lives better, instead of inventing dumb new things and convincing us we need them. We’d done the Road to Hana 20 years ago with a cassette tape tour and this app is so much better in every way, I can’t really compare them. In-app purchase money very well spent!
  • Road to Hana and Haleakalā

    By jindallae
    Make sure you get the Road to Hana loop. It is well worth it. I don’t know why they would keep a classic version and charge for a loop version. It is confusing but the loop version is worth it. Haleakalā is a must. Decent app, great guide.
  • Seamless

    By benheamin
    This app was a seamless and essential companion for our road to Hana trip. Very well timed descriptions of what sites we were approaching. Helped us find nice sites we would never have found otherwise, including the secret waterfall(amazing), swimming waterfall pools, lava cave, black sand beach, red sand beach(amazing and my favorite). Some corny jokes. Nice stories and history of Hawaii on the ride home. Well worth the money. Ran perfectly through our car stereo with usb connection. Only trouble was we didn’t realize the mile markers on the road reset to zero a few miles outside of paia so we thought the app was missing some sites we had looked into but it did not miss them, we just had not come to them yet.
  • Amazing!

    By shawnacy1981
    I never would have known about Venus pools if it wasn’t for this app.......and it was one of my favorite places on the entire island! That alone made the app worth the purchase..... Note: It also took me hours upon hours to find out there was also a waterfall 1-1.5 hour hike up the honomanu stream. I wish this was added for advanced would have saved me a whole day of research.
  • An absolute must!

    If you are exploring the road to Hana, this is the way to go! We would have missed so many cool stops if we had tried to do this without the tour. You also don't have cell service on most of the drive, so it would be really hard to find destinations on your own. The narrative was really entertaining and informative. We loved the stories of Hawaiian legends and the music. The only thing we would like to see done differently is there are gaps where there is no music or narrative, so it would be nice to have music playing in the background while driving. But other than that it was perfect! We did the reverse road to Hana which was great because most people drive the opposite direction, so we saw all the popular spots when they weren't very crowded and didn't have to fight traffic. It was a great local tip! And at only $8, you really can't go wrong.
  • Best tour guide ever!!!

    By Clau&George
    I totally recommend this app! We took the road to hana and then repeat the experience with the haleakala and it was really the most amazing travel companion ever. It made our Maui experience totally different! We are going to Big Island and will definetely use it again!!!
  • We would have been lost without this app

    By StephenVal
    We thankfully downloaded this right before our drive to Hana in Maui. It was the best decision we could have made! We felt like we were on a private tour that we could run at our own pace on our own time. So informative, guiding us to all the big spots as well as a number of very hidden places. Well worth the price of $8 for the tour. My only suggestion is making it a bit easier to access recommendations for places to eat in Hana. Overall, it’s a fantastic app. We’ll be recommending this to all of our friends.
  • Amazing tour
