    Road to Hana
    It took us a minute to get the hang of it but it was pretty simple to navigate. We enjoyed the recommended stops and history.

    Really useful audio guide. Fascinating to hear more about the volcanoes as we travelled through the park. Worked on both walking trip near visitor centre and driving down crater rd.

    Great Road to Hana experience!
    We wanted to drive ourselves for our Road to Hana adventure so we bought this audio tour and it worked very well. It works even when you lose cell service. There are many places along the Hana Highway that don’t get service. It tells you helpful tips about each site before you get to it letting you know that you can get out and hike, take a path to a waterfall, etc. it also gives you some history of Hawaii in the longer intervals between some stops. There are a few times where it plays some Hawaiian music as well that we enjoyed. Save yourself the money of booking a tour bus and just do it yourself. You can start the tour at any location you want and it will know where you are and start with the next closest stop to you. Also, it comes with a reverse version so if you missed some things along the way and want to catch them on your way back just play the reverse tour and you’re good to go.

    Great addition to the Journey!
    We were on Maui for 2 days on a cruise. We rented a car from the Enterprise that was a short walk from the Pier for both days. The first day we did a snorkel trip to the crater, which was amazing! The 2nd day we did our own "Road to Hana" trip, knowing that we only had about 5-6 hours vs the Tours 8-10 hours. I could see where the tours stopped and read reviews on what the popular stops were so we could do it on our own at our own pace. Having the audio Tour worked PERFECTLY! It was linked to our location, so it would tell stories along the way and tell us about up coming stops. We were so glad we uploaded the app etc.! The tours were SO EXPENSIVE and we had 5 people, so saved $1,400 by doing it on our own. Highly recommend! (note - if you rent a car for more than a day you need to park it overnight at the airport and uber or taxi back to the ship - cost about $20 for parking, $15 uber, $20 taxi - but well worth the savings we had by driving our selves to the snorkel tour and road to Hana!!)

    Enjoyed the tour
    This was great and helpful. We loved learning the little facts about Hawaii. Directions got a little confusing at 1 point and we missed a must see spot. But other than that it was great.

    Great value. Excellent information. Don’t hesitate.
    If you are planning on driving the Road to Hana, buy this today!!! This audio guide shared so many interesting facts about the island and its culture. The audio tour made the drive so much more enjoyable than it would have been without it. So easy to use. Highly recommend.

    Needs some work
    We ran into quite a few glitches - the map did not know always know where we were and often seemed to not correlate w our place on the road. We had hoped for a more informative tour geared to the locations on the trip. Also more info would be helpful such as cost of stops and need for reservations in some cases. We have newish iPhones w 5g capability so it’s not our lack of technology that was the problem - just that the tour itself needs updating and some polishing.

    We enjoyed learning the history of Hawaii as we made our way to Hana. The audio tour gave us many beautiful and interesting places to visit. We were able to use the tour on our way back to visit places we missed on the way to Hana. Very easy to access. Well done. 👍🏼

    Bananas for road to Hana
    Took the road to Hana with my husband and 15month old son. We had such an amazing time and learned so much Hawaiian history. Aunty Sandy’s is a MUST stop on your way. It was the best banana bread I have ever had! Also we took the road all the way back to Wailea and stopped at the Maui winery on the way back. Added bonus stop!

    Well worth it!
    A great, informative tour around the coast of Maui with tons of history of the island. The map was easy to follow and the sound bites lined up perfectly. Beautiful waterfalls, ocean views and stunning lush greenery. There were places that the road was nearly one lane for two way traffic with some very tight switchbacks so I would suggest this for experienced drivers. We had a blast and can’t wait to use this company as we travel all around the US. 10/10 ⭐️

Do not buy this if you want to use it the same day. I purchased this as what I thought would be a fun last-minute thing to do on my last day in Kauai but was never able to use it because the tour provider didn’t send me the info I needed until the next day. I even selected the date I planned to use it when I checked out. Despite their delayed delivery, they will not give me a refund because in theory I could use the app “for a lifetime.” This just feels like a rip-off.

Never got it to work correctly. When we got to the starting location, the voice started and said about one sentence and stopped. We never stopped driving so we assumed we drove out of range. We turned around to get the voice to start again where it had previously started, but the voice did not come back. And so it went. The map never worked so we programmed each next stop into Google MAPS and read the commentary. Not the experience we were expecting.

I admit that I am in my sixties and technically challenged, but after getting to the starting point of the tour, I really didn't know which direction to go. It took some frustrating turns and turn arounds to finally figure it out. Once acclimated however, the tour was worth the money. It covered points of interest that you would otherwise miss. It also talked about the history of Hawaii, which I found interesting. Overall, I highly recommend it.

This self guided tour turned out to a great addition to our visit to Kauai! We sat in the comfort of our rental car and turned on the audio tour to explore the island. It was great to have a downloaded tour that followed us by satellite because some areas did not have phone signal. We were able to do it at our own pace and time frame. We leaned interesting facts and the kids enjoyed it as well. Just get one per family!

Great way to explore the island on your own if you have a car! The pins are a little off but still able to find most of the destinations. Would highly recommend as a full day trip!! Especially if you do some of the hiking!

This self-drive tour was an excellent way to see the island. I saw some of the most breathtaking sites I've ever experienced on this drive. Took about 4 hours. Make sure to leave early because you don't want to go down the mountain at night.

2 things
1- had difficulty finding the starting location, but I figured out if I reversed the order of points of interest to go back to #1 we would be good
2-in between points of interest, give passengers the choice of playing music, sine we were in Hawaii, Hawaiian music might be nice.
