Amazing tour with education and history!!
Ryan_O, Sept 2023
Don’t let the looks fool you, The Captain and Justin were excellent. Really enjoyed being in the van with Justin, as he brought the education on culture and history and was nothing short of professional and entertaining. I would recommend you do this early in your trip so you can go back to spots you really enjoyed!!
Around the island in one day!

This is a great tour. There is a lot to see, and it moves pretty fast. We had a full bus, and everyone was friendly and helpful when needed. I like traveling with a tour just to meet people from all over. Nice to chat with others.

A lot to see in one day. Guide Mike spent too much time talking about where to buy inexpensive gifts and food (Don Quixote), but the tour was still good.

Giovanna_G, Aug 2023
A must do when to Oahu for the fist time, especially when the tour/driver is given by Justin a native from Hawaii. Professional, friendly, funny and very attentive to our group. We were able to see everything on the description of the tour, and 1 more highlight(freebie) since we respected the times that was given for each site. Mahalo:)

Valerie_C, Aug 2023
Over all great experience! Got to see a different side of the island I’ve never been too. Since we were a smaller group we took some detours to a nice food truck spot that were awesome. With all choices of food to pick that spot was the best. Definitely gives me ideas what spots to hit up when I come back specially beaches and waterfall.

Awesome first time visit to Oahu!
Mina_K, Aug 2023
I booked a tour for my sister, my niece and me the night before. We were contacted right away to confirm. We were the only ones on the tour, and Justin, our guide, treated us like VIPs! He treated my niece like a thinking individual, asked us our preferences, and took us a little off the beaten path. We visited the key tour sites just ahead of the big tour buses, and he made sure the food we ate was top notch! Justin is very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history, his people and culture. He taught us some words and introduced us to Aloha spirit. It was a day well-spent and we feel so fortunate to have had this great experience!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Mina, Justin is top notched and this makes us all Smile. On behalf of the Team we would all like to send out a lot of Mahalo,s, Thank You
