This guide app is great and the best thing is it is always there so take the tours on your time. The folklore and historical information was helpful to give meaning to some of the stops along the way. Great when you want to explore on your own.

Awesome tour meshing movie clips from the past with the present locations. Engaging guide who dispensed knowledge with humor and great rapport with all of us on the tour. The driver was very good as well!

We did the one hour plane ride around Kauai. It was rainy but our pilot did an awesome job of showing us the best of everything that he could!! I would highly suggest!!!

We loved this type of guided tour. This was our first time using an audio car tour and it was fantastic!

It was an amazing experience with a funny nice pilot, we had such a great time !!!
