    Loved the park especially with the audio tour!
    Really loved driving through the park! The views are amazing and purchasing the audio tour really enhanced the experience ten times over. Would highly recommend! There’s so much history and it makes you feel even more connected to the sights. We loved it!

    Not a great suggestion
    This was a great app to take along on a drive to Hanna. Very entertaining and informative. I would suggest that you don't follow all their recommendations. We went to the Fish Market in Paia for dinner as suggested by this app. It was not a great place to eat and I would not go there again. The service was rude, the food was cold and the fish tacos were not very good and the tables were dirty. I would not take this apps suggestions again.

    Even tor two people who aren’t very tech savvy, this tour was wonderful. Easy to manage. Good directions and suggestions from the guide. Would do it again in another spot.

    Marriage and Vacation Saver! The best money you'll spend if you're on a budget but want a local guide.
    The Road to Hana has a reputation of being scary, difficult, and long. With my husband driving, we were able to enjoy the twists, turns, views and the kids were thoroughly entertained by the narrator. Using your GPS, it will let you know when a turn is coming up with a point of interest. It tells you local history, describes towns and neighborhoods, and picks up where you left off if you get out of the car and explore one of the many suggested stopping spots. For a few dollars, this was the best buy we could have purchased for a self guided tour that created no stress, was on our time table, and made our first time visiting Maui and conquering The Road to Hana a do-able feat. It is exciting to note that the narrator is an actual resident of Maui, so local knowledge was shared throughout. There are many stops that you won't know about, even if you had a guide book. You can skip a "point of interest" and the audio will move on based on your GPS location. The narrator/guide will even say, "Ok, you can come back and visit this on your way out". Worth every penny--and the best part is my husband and I didn't fight on navigation issues. Marriage and vacation saver! Hahaha.

    Great Experience
    This was a wonderful way to explore the Outer Banks on our own. The audio began exactly where we started our journey and would pick up when we returned to the car. (Note: We began our trip at the Wright Brothers National Park since it was closest to where we were staying.) The audio provided interesting facts about the locations we were visiting and pointed out items to look out for. We used Bluetooth and played the audio through our car. Was definitely worth the money.

    Useless
    Useless. It took 4 hours (and customer service) to download the tour to the ap. Once in Sedona, we turned on the ap. We had audio for about 10 minutes. We stopped to purchase water and lost all audio from that point on. Only screenshots and static descriptions. We stopped at a local visitor center and received fantastic descriptions and great maps. The NO REFUND cancellation policy should have been enough to avoid this junk but they hide it well. To add insult to injury, Viator is now sending us daily emails to rebook the tour ! And, of course, no unsubscribe button anywhere. Avoid.

    Easy way to tour on your own!
    If you just want to tour on your own without hiring tour guides, and rent a car this is the way to go. The narrator has a pleasant voice, he's so informative. We learned so much Hawaiian history. We did two tours on the Big Island. Best $16.99 I've ever spent. The set up was easy, yes even seniors can do it. I love to travel. I will probably use this audio tour again. Oh and he even let you know when to show down and take it easy. It was like he was in the car with us, oh wait he was!

    Drove north from key westbound
    Self guided tour was not continuous. Had to drive many miles between comments. No mention of places to eat. Maybe I booked the wrong guide. The help chat was excellent to get the guide going. Very impressed with timeliness and knowledge of the help chat!

    Great way to learn about tge jeys. We enjoyed the long, slow ride from Key West. We wished we had more time to check out more of the stops mentioned. The voice was easy to listen to and loved the expression of his voice.

I would recommend the audio tour to everyone. It was like having a tour guide in your car. He not only took us to the places we wanted to go he also pointed out the best places to eat and shop and included lots of history along the way.

There is a lot of driving here in Kauai, so it’s great to have a companion to point out the highlights. This app is simple and easy to navigate, just start driving and he starts talking. We could also play our own music as well. We went inland to the Hindu monastery and there wasn’t anything about the stops along the way.

This audio tour was the perfect option for my 6-day solo trip to Kauai. I don’t like crowds or noisy groups, so I enjoyed listening to this while driving at my own pace instead of doing a 6-hour bus tour. Also, I was healing from a fractured foot and appreciated stopping whenever, wherever, and however long I wanted throughout my stay.

Plus, the narrator is very engaging. He is funny and tells many interesting stories and facts about the island. In fact, I was glad to be alone so I could listen to him without anyone interrupting! Being able to play my Spotify playlist at the same time made it extra enjoyable. Highly recommended for the independent traveler who wants an entertaining guided tour of Kauai at their own pace.

We had some initial difficulty getting the audio program on our phone but called the help number and a very nice and patient young man assisted us and got it working. We enjoyed the narration and the stories in between the tourist sites. We felt it was a great choice and a good value. I would advise individuals to set the program up ahead of time and not wait until the last minute as we did.

If you don't know you will that Kauai is a very chill, relaxed island. Having this audio tour while driving around to get from place to place literally made my vacation!! It was my 2nd most favorite thing outside of the helicopter ride if that says anything so worth every penny and more, you MUST have this if you rented a car!

Stayed up in Princeville. Restaurants were crowded & reservations difficult unless we ate at 7:30. ( which was fine except then they sometimes ran out if certain dishes. Food mostly was ok. No great experiences & pricy.
Some roads were very difficult to drive at night & felt dangerous due to the tight turns up & down the mountainous region. Such as to next town of Hailea.
Weston where we stayed is on a cliff. Had to go out to find beaches.
Also as everyone knows,it rains often in Kauai.

I stumbled upon this after a private tour that we had scheduled got cancelled. I found it to be perfect for our needs while exploring the island by car. It provided some historical information and some folklore which was what I was hoping from a tour guide! I was impressed with the timing of the information while we were driving (spot on!) and the options it provided for the various routes available. I appreciated being able to use the service at various times during our trip (it didn't expire after 4 days, for example). And just can't beat the price!

First time I have used this auto tour and find it pretty helpful. But it should be updated from time to time. This one seems to have been done pre-pandemic and things have changed. For example the Lighthouse requires reservations that must be made way in advance. But overall I like the suggestions and the stories. Also if you are going to be driving in the same area repeatedly - you can stop and start so you don't have to listen to the same thing over and over.

This driving tour app was excellent! We were able to drive both sides of Kauai from our resort in Poipu. Our guide was funny, very informative and offered many points of interest we would not have seen without the app. It was like having a guide sitting in our car with us only better. Highly recommend!

The program itself is great. Hits all the highlights and gives you some detail about various locations. The narration was cheerful and pleasant to listen to, as though you were on a live guided tour. The only negative was the reception on the island. While it’s not a direct reflection on the program itself, reception in the area past Hanalei is poor, so the GPS is spotty and the narrative kept stopping. Overall, worth the price.

Hi Q9338ZRpaulak, just a fyi - GPS signal doesn't come from reception/cell towers. It comes from satellites, so signal isn't an issue if have a clear view to the sky. Suspect this might have been a phone/car pairing issue and we have tips in the app, and a toll free number for support as well! Look forward to have you tour again with us in another location soon!
