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!

Love this app! It is a very relaxed way to experience the park. It is very complete and informative. I appreciate how it was able to start explanations automatically once we reached the spot.

Quite enjoyable, easy to follow and directions were excellent! The whole process of setup and use was quite clear and we were able to explore the volcanos at our own pace. Thanks!

A small price to pay. There were 6 of us in the group and we got so much more out if this experience than we ever imagined. It was like we had our own tour guide in the car with us. We didn't even have the energy to do all of the things recommended. I know we saw and learned so much more than we would have in our own. They even included local music and stories/folklore during the drives.

This was a great app. We loved Craig or Greg, he was funny and it matched the spots he told us to go. We did the entire park in two days, and made it to the Arch. he was excellent. Loved the stories. Worth the ten dollars it cost me.

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.

The app provided useful information, but the narrator's style didn't work for the members of my group. Once I found that I could read the information, rather than hear it, our experience improved.
