Highly recommend this tour. Great way to see and circle the island. Marissa, our guide, was fantastic. She was very personable, informative, and helpful.

Just the best way to capture Oahu in one day. Paul, our guide, was so enthusiastic and friendly. He was tireless in sharing his knowledge of the island and its history. His love of Hawaii was infectious!

Fabulous tour, fabulous tour guide. We started on time, and Paul I think! was personable, friendly, full of information and silly jokes that had us laughing. He managed the tour well, keeping us on track without hurrying us, and was super clear about expectations. The temple was lovely and the lunch tasty. We did see sea turtles beached, and he was sure to make sure we kept the appropriate distance to protect these animals. We actually caught a surf competition on the North Shore, which was a bonus and super interesting. If I could give 4.5, I would, but only because we got to the Dole Plantation so late in the day that we couldn't tour the gardens or take the train. We did see a pineapple demonstration which taught me a few things about choosing a pineapple, and enjoyed a delicious pineapple whip, so it was still worth it.

A great tour. Learnt and saw so much of Oahu that we never knew about. Our driver and guide Levent was so knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch at the shrimp farm was so delicious. You must try the garlic shrimp.A highly recommended tour.

The North Shore is beautiful and you feel like you're getting a taste of the real Oahu, and a respite from the hub of tourist traps back in Honolulu. Lovent was an excellent tour guide, prepared to cover a number of subjects but also adept at addressing the random questions of this group of first-timers to Hawaii. His descriptions of the island's history, ecology, and challenges were very honest and enlightening. The tour moved at a relaxed pace and is one of the best that I've taken in any locale.

We had a wonderful day with Paul. We had a very small group of 3, which was great, seemed more personal. What a great day and very informative, Paul was determined for us to find Green sea Turtles, which he found and we saw. Paul is a credit to your company! Thanks again for a wonderful tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! The Tour guide was exceptional and displayed a vast knowledge and historical overview of Hawaiian history, geography and ecology- he was exceptionally great! Despite the rain the beach stops of eastward coast of Kualoa, North Shore and Byodo-in Temple were amazing!
