Our trip began in Kona the first week of March 2020. The road on the Soth Island is very good with a few areas that have rough tar but no problem. Depending on your final destination or the number of places you want to see or stop for photographs, will consume a day, if you

In my opinion this is the best way to tour the island. So much great information provided along the way. Take the tour at whatever pace you wish. Do all or just some of the tour. I'd choose to this over any other guided tour, where you have no control. I hope there is

I don't like bus tours generally Unless it is a small bus or van. But the app is a better choice. I had a little difficulty getting the app set up but I called and one of the staff walked me through with ease. Using the app was easy enough and fun. We took our time, lingered

We aren't big bus tour fans but I don't always have the time to research everything. This is a good alternative and certainly a bargain. Let me explain how it works then I'll give you some tips. You must download the app either from itunes or the app store (this was free).

Mahalo for your feedback. We are continuously updating the app based on user feedback to make the experience better. Your input is greatly appreciated. Just wanted to make a few clarifications. Shaka Guide tours have designated starting points but any user can join the tour from any point in the tour map and follow the numbers chronologically from there for the audio and narration to play automatically as tours are designed to go in one direction only. Wish you would have contacted us at that time for support. We have tutorial videos you can look at for guidance on how to set up your phone and the Shaka Guide app for use with your Car Stereo If you have further suggestions or comments, please email us at aloha@shakaguide.com  🤙🤙🤙

I found this on tripadvisor but ended up purchasing through the app store on my phone. I purchased the bundle for Big Island and it was so worth the money! We had looked at booking a tour, but we prefer to tour on our own, seeing what we want to see for how long we want to see
