This tour was amazing and for the cost it can't be beat. If you are adventurous and like to go at your own pace this is the guide for you. My family of 5 would get up every day exited to choose which tour to do. It also gives you so much history of the island that you wouldn't normally hear. I loved the fact that I can choose where I wanted to go within the tour. Sometimes we started out late and didn't get to finish so we would pick up the next day where we left off. I even suggested it to 2 families we met while on vacation and they downloaded it and was very pleased with the experience. You definitely need more that 5 days to do and see everything. We were there for 3 weeks and finished all the tours in 10 days. Probably because we were pacing ourselves and sometimes stopped at a beach for the rest of the day. Definitely great since COVID limits group and we felt safer being in our own car with no strangers. This tour made us appreciate the history of the big island more and the history of the people. Definitely going to do it all over again when we go back in the summer. Some.of the things along the tour were closed due to COVID, so hopefully when we go back it'll be open and we can see the attractions. MAHALO!!!!

Christmas week 2020 and this App was so superior to my guide books and even an old Travel CD our friends gave us. It’s suggestions, directions and history were remarkable. More importantly it Did NOT use cellular service to work, but the GPS on the phone. It was almost a miracle. unlike a cellular map which is 3-to5 seconds behind your location, this knows exactly where you are in real-time and tells you when to slow down and turn. During the Pandemic reopening of the road to Hana, some locations are still closed and the App did not know that information. Luckily by December 23, most were open—but not all. An improvement for the app would be updated during the Pandemic. Buy it. I hesitate getting the $25 completed set, versus the one trip or Hana Circle. I used the other sets and found them useful,

This tour app was the highlight of the trip! Like a personal private tour guide, we learned so much! Great history, cultural insights, stories, humor and the best Hawaiian music ever. The GPS link enabled us to travel at our own speed, skip certain sites, even jump between tours. And, it’s a bargain price! Welcome to the new world of travel guidance.

This application allows you to tour Oahu in the comfort of your own car and company. We are on our honeymoon and given COVID concerns and restrictions we did not want to be in a bus full of people. So, we rented a Jeep and purchased the entire 6 tours. Best $ spent! We have completed 1 tour and have 5 to go. So far we have enjoyed the guide he is funny and informative. The best part is the freedom to take as much or as little time at each stop as you desire. There are food recommendations along the way but we winged it and tried other places. I highly recommend this tour format especially given the current pandemic.
