Did not get to see...
Paul_S, Oct 2022
Did not get to see everything because of bad weather. Our guide Mica was very friendly and knowledgeable. Would have been a better trip but can't stop mother nature.
Photo instruction with fun !
Robert_R, Sept 2022
Curt was our tour guide and did a great job. Showed us remote spots we did not know. Provided a perspective my husband and I did not know about. Hawaii. He also gave my husband such valuable instruction that we are already incorporating into our vacation pics. The photos we took seem to be professionally done. Even got a photo of a meteor! Definitely recommend this tour!
Highlight of my trip
Jorge_Y, Mar 2022
I’ve been solo traveling here in Hawaii for over a month and out of all things I’ve done this experience sits at the very top. I’ll never forget this moment. We saw an epic sunset of the China Walls, did steel wool photography on the beach in pitch darkness, and lastly did night painting photography up in the mountains. Along the way we were given iPhone compatible tripods that we used to shoot long exposure shots of the night sky. We went during a new moon and saw so many stars. I would have honestly stayed there all night stargazing and listening to the soothing sound of the ocean waves. Our tour guide Mac really made this trip unforgettable! He was hilarious and kept us entertained the whole time. His energy was phenomenal and kept us wide awake. He personally showed me so many iPhone photography tips. Mac gave us insight knowledge on the neighborhood and even went out of his way to show us around some spots that only locals would experience. This night time tour really stood out as one of the most unique things I’ve done here on Oahu. Highly recommend doing it! It’s so worth it.

Thank you for your review. I love that you gave us a 5 star review and someone from your tour gave a 1 star review. That goes to show you, you can’t please them all. I truly hope you had a great time in Hawaii.
not family friendly or safe, do not recommend
Anita_W, Mar 2022
Photography and views were excellent, but the tour guide was crude, full of inoffensive comments, coarse jokes, and lots of swearing even though he knew our group included my younger daughters. He was also an erratic driver and ran several red lights. We felt unsafe and it ruined our last night in Oahu. Not up to Viator standards, not family-friendly, do not recommend.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hi Anita, Thank you for your feedback. After you text me after the tour, I watched the video from the dash cam to see what you were talking about. I can see that the driver was making jokes that were a little inappropriate for some but at the same time, the other tour guests were on the same page as him. Most people do enjoy the relax nature of how we operate and that we are not a scripted tour company. I am sorry that you felt the conversation was not suitable for your group. I did watch for his driving and I will have to take my guides side on this one. The lights in Hawaii are not censored and skips the turning lane sometimes. He took it upon himself to get you back without having to wait at all the non changing lights. Thank you for your feed back.
