Great and Affordable Experience! - This was a great and affordable experience. The app worked well and was perfect for the two days we rented the car. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is renting a car and wants to learn about the sites along the way. The best money I spent in Hawaii!

Tour of a lifetime - This tour was truly amazing! It almost took us the whole day to finish it since we had to stop at various locations to see the scenery and take photos. Well worth every penny!

Made the day much better! - It made the day much more interesting and we all enjoyed knowing more about everything we saw on the trip. I would suggest adding some music between narrations so that you know that it is still there and still working. Some of the gaps between narration were quite long. I would definitely do this again and it worked very well.

I saw the beach from Gilligan’s Island and I definitely would not have seen that without the app. - The app works really well with the onboard car navigation. I had no problem with it. It guided me the entire trip and if I went off the path it came back when I returned. I learned a whole bunch of things about Kauai and it made my trip much better. I highly recommend it.

I would but again! - Pros: once you get the hang of it with the GPS. It works well. Not that hard really. We would definitely do it again! Cons: When we were on the tour in our rental car- 3 of the places required reservations in advance to enter gardens etc. We only had one day there. If we would have know ahead of time we would have made reservations. Tips- Download the app before you go. Review the stops and research if you need reservations prior. If the App could highlight these things prior to going on the tour- it would be very helpful.

Don't do it. - Be careful when you book this, even though it is a self driving tour, it is only good for whatever day is on the calendar. Rip off. They don't make that clear and it is a hassle to download in the first place. Never using trip advisor again. Shame on them.

Disappointing - 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.
