Hope_H, Aug 2023
Had the best time on this tour! Shamus was our personal tour guide to the North Shore and he was great! Our time was well spent at each location. My daughter and I especially loved swimming at Waimea Falls and with the turtles at a cove which seemed like a secret gem. A must tour for anyone who wants to explore the North Shore and its beauty!
Great guide, great experience, great day

Seamus was fantastic, professional and very knowledgable. I would highly recommend him as your tour guide and the personalized experience he gave us was incredible.
Ally_F, Jul 2023
This was the first tour we booked and we went in without any expectations. So glad we chose this tour! Shamus is very knowledgeable, Hawaii- loving long resident, he is also funny and a nice guy! The tour was full of breathtaking pictures, learning a lot of about ingenious culture and history behind the islands, snorkeling with turtles, yummy lunch at Jenny’s fish truck and fun ride ! Please do not hesitate and book this one! 👍
Amazing and fun

The falls was beautiful and the hike was sooo pretty with so manydifferent flowersand plants. Our tour guide was excellent and very personable. He explained everything that we were seeing in details and n made our trip fun. I loved our small group we were able to get to know each other and have a get time seeing the Turtles as well.

Not worth the price
Sarah_P, Dec 2022
For a he price it wasn’t worth it. My friend has been to north shore before said there are better beaches to see turtles and we saw the shell of one. I was really disappointed. Then we didn’t realize the fee to get into the park wasn’t covered. I feel like that should have been explained better. It was mostly just driving to tourist shops and shopping. Pretty area, I just wish we had booked a different tour for that price. Oh and the guide kept arguing about where movies were filmed. I had done a movie tour in Kauai and they had showed clips from the movie than brought us to that scene and Shamus was very instant that it was all filmed in Honolulu. It was annoying
Response from Host, Jan 2023
we are sorry
Memorable and relaxing experience
Warren_F, Nov 2022
Seamus, our guide, was extremely kind, friendly and patient. We never felt rushed. He even offered to take us to another location even though it would have meant another hour of his time beyond the tour time. The tour felt very personalized for my family.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
thank you
Best tour ever
Marcy_C, Nov 2022
We had an amazing time. Shamus was the best tour guide. He was so nice and had so much information about the island. I highly recommend him for a tour around the island.
Great experience with Seamus!
Katina_S, Sep 2022
Seamus was great! Showed us all the beaches, turtles, local shops, vendors and markets. Pointed out various places of interest, numerous buildings and landmarks. Knew all the plants, huts and life of the villagers and info about the waterfalls. Very knowledgeable and super friendly! Would highly recommend this tour.
Great private hiking and sightseeing tours
Dongyan_F, Dec 2021
I strongly recommend this hiking and sightseeing company in Oahu to people who prefer small groups. I had 3 days of tours in Oahu with them. Their cars were Jeep or Mercedes minivan, with big logo prints on the side of the cars. Their private tours were comfortable, flexible and time saving to families and groups within 5. Seamus or Natalie have worked with me for those tours. They were professional, on time, knowledgeable, and kind. I had only good experience during those 3 days.
Absolutely amazing!!
Kellyn_T, Nov 2021
Shaymus was absolutely exceptional. Super knowledgeable and quickly made us feel like family. He was patient with all of our questions and shared in our excitement as we experienced the beautiful island for the first time. I would 10/10 recommend this tour to anyone! Definitely worth the splurge.
Atsuko_S, Oct 2021
We got canceled on the morning of our tour because they had no driver I don’t recommend to use this site. Very sad day..
Wonderful private tour
Jennifer_D, Aug 2021
Natalie was a fantastic guide and completely personalized the tour for us. We had a great time! Thank you!
Personal, awesome, and fun.
Rhonda_B, Jun 2021
Very personal, it was only me and my family. The stops we made were longer, we weren’t rushed. The tour guide was awesome! I would recommend this tour.
