Here at Shaka Guide our goal is to connect people with places through storytelling.
Don’t you love learning about the places you’re visiting? Us too!
That’s why in 2016 we opened our virtual doors and invited you to explore Hawaii in a completely new way. Our self-guided GPS audio tours give you all the benefits of a guided experience with the freedom to explore on YOUR terms.
We’re proud to have earned the title of Hawaii’s highest-rated travel apps. And now, we’ve taken our 5-star storytelling to the mainland. Although our company is rooted in Hawaii, we’re thrilled to offer a variety of tours across the country.
A tremendous amount of care goes into each tour we create. Every site we visit, word we say, and song we play has been hand-picked, researched and crafted for quality.
So what do you say? Let’s explore together!
Rita and Andrew (pictured above) founded Shaka Guide in 2016 as a way to offer a guided tour experience at a fraction of the price leaving travelers with a deeper understanding and appreciation for Hawaii.
Consider us your personal tour guide in an app.
Confused? Don’t be - we’re here to help! Here's how it works. Our self-guided tours use GPS to play automatically as you drive. That means, while you’re touring, we’ll provide you with turn-by-turn directions, stories, and music along the way. Cool huh?
We’ve laid out an awesome itinerary, filled with popular stops and lesser-known gems. But here at Shaka Guide, we truly believe that it’s your vacation, so what you see and do is totally up to you - pick the stops you like and skip the ones you don’t.
The best part? You won't just see these beautiful sites, you'll connect with them as you immerse yourself in their history and legends.
YOUR PURCHASE GIVES BACK
At Shaka Guide we believe in supporting local organizations - the ones that are working to keep beaches clean, preserve native plants and animals, and pass down stories from generations ago. Whether it's conservation efforts or cultural enrichment, their dedicated work helps make it possible for us to share interesting stories and make awesome tours! That's why we donate a portion of your purchase to the charity of your choice.
Here's how it works: you make a purchase, we'll send you a list of nonprofits, and you select the one you want us to donate to. It's that easy! You can learn more about the organizations we support here.
