Great History Tour
Judith_C, Sept 2021
The Pali was spectacular and unbelievably windy. Very interesting stop at Punchbowl Cemetery. Learned a lot with our guide Travis. He treated us like Obama.
Culture tour of Oahu

Loved spending the day with Sean and learning all about Oahu and its history. The sights were breathtaking even if the day was overcast. Got to try some cocoa puffs courtesy of Sean. The little extra things he did for us made the tour even more enjoyable Highly recommend this tour and guide
A wonderful and personal experience

Lanai picked us up at our hotel in his Jeep and we spent the day on a personal adventure with him. He explained the Hawaiian culture to us, showed us many beautiful and sacred sites, and we got to sit back and let him do all the driving. Well worth the money - very reasonably priced for the private tour and personal experience. We will do other Jeep Tours in the future.

Personal tour with a native Hawaiian...how much better does it get?! Went to places only a local would know, plus Sean had excellent information about tourist spots. So what if we went in the rainy season and could not see grand vistas due to the rain and clouds...we had a great time!
Great experience - really nice to...

Great experience - really nice to have 1:1 interaction with the tour guide. We were picked up and toured via Jeep not off road, and did not feel pressured time-wise, like you would have with a large bus load trying to stay on schedule. The driver/guide was native Hawaiian, and able to answer all our questions. Definitely worthwhile.
