This is an excellent half day tour that enabled us to see the East and North coasts of Oahu. Bethany our guide provided excellent ongoing commentary and we had plenty of stops for photos. This tour commenced at lunchtime, but perhaps would be better as a morning tour as we were a bit rushed at the end of the day with traffic delays.

We had Justin as our tour guide. He was abundantly full of useful, helpful, and intriguing information. Young college man that made the tour worth the cost. As it is a tour around Oahu, it was a lot of driving however, the 20 minute stops were appropriate and the tour moved along very smoothly. If you buy, request Justin!
