We had a blast at the tour Our guide jack was very knowledgeable, punctual and offered us a great insight into both the history of Hawaii and good places to check out. The tour was very comprehensive with a great overall tour of short north, Dole plantation and lastly our favorite part which was snorkeling at Hanoma Bay. Shout out to our driver Paul who was excellent and just fun to be around Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hawaii especially for the first time Nader

Exceptional tour with charming knowledgeable guide and driver

The guide Sergio was well versed and personable keeping the group informed and entertained at all times during the tour along with the expert driving of Damian. The tour was well paced and the lunch was exceptional at the North Shore Farm. There was plenty of time to kayak/paddle board and take photos. Hanauma Bay was a perfect culmination to a lovely full day.

Great tour guide Cameron

Cameron was great! Always happy and ready for activities! My kids loved him! The waimea beach was much better than Hanauna bay.
