My husband and I really enjoyed this excursion. The description of the tour was that we would be taken to some scenic spots so we could have some beautiful photos and the tour guide would give us photo tips. We booked this excursion to see the scenery not to necessarily get great photos. Though we did get those too. There were only 5 of us on this trip. Our tour guide Galen was very helpful and informative. We made several stops. The first being up to the mountains overlooking Honolulu. We had a beautiful panoramic view of the city. We believe this was a great alternative to climbing up Diamond Head to get a look at Honolulu. We went to a beach that was pretty deserted but beautiful. We made several other stops as well as stopping at a small local restaurant in the middle of nowhere for lunch. I would give this excursion 5 stars except that while we were at our last stop our van was broken into while Galen was giving us photo tips. The van was locked but the vandals broke the window. One of the ladies had her purse stolen. So by the time we waited for the police to come and make a report, we unfortunately never got to our last intended stop.
Galen was an excellent tour guide and photographer. The tour took us to lovely places and gave us the time to take beautiful pictures without being rushed. He assisted us with whatever needs we had as photographers and took us to a local restaurant that had great food. I would recommend this tour whether you are just starting out and would like to learn some basics or a more seasoned photographer.
Alex our guide was amazing, he took us places we would never be able to find. The beauty of Ohau is breath taking and it reflects in our photos. Alex was very helpful with assisting us with our camera setting if you asked for help and very knowledgeable with the history of the island. We enjoyed ourselves so much we didn't want the day to end, Alex treated us like family.
Excellent!!! If you want to bring back beautiful memories back home with you, make sure you book this tour! Dee-Jay, our professional photographer tour guide was indeed amazing! He answered our photography questions and helped with even more! Very friendly AND very professional! He let us spend as much time or as much less time as we wanted on each stop we made each stop more beautiful than the next. Even lunch was amazing! I highly recommend this tour AND Dee-Jay as your guide! It was more of a personal experience than a group tour experience! We loved it and have not stopped talking about it!
