Our guide Kole was the best you could ask for. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and when faced with some daunting circumstances on the tour, handled everything quickly and professionally. The tour’s stops never felt rushed, and Kole’s expertise on history, ecology, and photography was exemplary. Views were spectacular, of course — pictured is a section off to one side of the Halona Blow Hole. If you take this particular tour, a light jacket or windbreaker would probably be a good idea due to the wind at the Halona Blow Hole and Makapu’u Lookout.

Alex is a wealth of knowledge. We went on the tour yesterday on November 2nd, 2020 for my daughter’s 8th birthday. It exceeded my expectations. For a family who loves to pose, we really appreciated his extensive photography knowledge. The sightseeing was beautiful and the food delicious. This tour was our favorite part of the trip.

We had a wonderful time on our tour! It was a unique experience because we booked just before everything went on lockdown on the island during Coronavirus so it wasn't quite your usual tour. A lot of the usual stops were closed so we got to go off the beaten track and explore some of the more out there sites the island had to offer. It was just us on the tour as well which was awesome. We actually booked the Instagram tour but Alex tailor made us a tour depending on what was available during that time. We were with the owner (Alex) and his girlfriend for the day, just the 4 of us, and they made us feel super welcomed and comfortable. We got some AMAZING photos and had a lot of fun exploring the island! Thank you for the wonderful day! TIP: Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen and bug spray! A hat would also be a good idea.

Booking was very easy on their website. Email information was accurate and driver Kurt was an amazing person to show the wonderful spots of Oahu. He was very considerate with any concerns that came up on the trip and was able to adjust accordingly. I would highly recommend any of their photography tours.

Kurt and Clarence were amazing. Super fun, chill guys. Great vibe. We did this tour our first day and it was perfect. So many photo ops and beautiful spots. Kurt shows you some tricks on how to best use your iPhone to capture the best photos. Couldn’t recommend this tour more!

My teenage daughter and I love photography. We were gifted 2 seats on the Oahu Photography Tour for Christmas. We knew traveling from Boston MA to Hawaii would offer great photo taking opportunities. This tour took us to such incredible sights! We ventured to places we would have never gone otherwise. Alex was a great tour guide. He was professional, accommodating and very personable. He had us laughing the whole time. He gave lots of info on the island. He also gave great suggestions on how to improve our shooting techniques. This tour is great for professionals and novices alike. We would love to have the time to do all of the tours offered. We will definitely be back on our next trip here. Highly recommend!!!

This tour was our last activity before returning to Australia and it didn't disappoint. As the saying goes - we left the best until last. Mac was our tour guide and he was great. A bundle of energy with an amazing knowledge of his surroundings and the history of Hawaii. There were only 3 of us on the tour on this day which was a perfect size as Mac could spend lots of time helping us with our photography shots. He was also always on hand to take a photo of us when we wanted one taken. This is the perfect way to get out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki see the island without having the hassle of driving yourself and provided us with the opportunity to learn a lot about the island. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. Ask for Mac as your guide

Aloha Wilson Family, Thank you so very much for taking the time out of your day to write this review for us! Mac is our newest guide but has surpassed all of our expectations of him and has just been nailing the tours and making everyone happy, we couldn't have asked for a better guide to join our team!

If you are considering a photographic tour this is a good one to look out for. Our tour guide Mac really made the experience comfortable and the locations were awesome. We were picked up on time from hotel the transportation was excellent, lunch was good.
My only negative is that I am not sure inspiring photographers have grasped this tour yet. Our party of 6 had only 2 DSLR cameras and the rest iphone's.

Thank you for your review, Martin. I would like to respond to your review regarding the lack of DSLR cameras on our tour. We have been in business for over 8 years and have seen a great shift in photography. In the beginning, we had nothing but DSLR, and point and shoots cameras. The groups were the same in the type of person, just different cameras. Now, jump to 2019, we see that most of the people that were trying to get into photography realized that for their needs, a phone is just the right camera for them. They take amazing photos and are able to share them with their friends and family as soon as they take them. Our tours are designed for everyone and anyone that wants to come out and get great photos of Hawaii no matter what camera they have. The guides are here to help anyone with whatever camera they bring on the tour because we feel its not the camera that takes a good photo, it's you :) Thank you again for your review Martin, I just wanted to let people know that you can bring a DSLR, Smartphone, Drone, Point & Shoot, or even a film camera to enjoy any of our tours.

I went on the 'Beautiful Hawaii' tour last week which was hosted by De-Jay who was a fantastic tour guide. Was picked up time and taken to many beautiful places on the island. We were given plenty of time to take as many shots as we liked and did not feel rushed at all unlike other tours I have been on. De- Jay was also helpful with giving us photography tips and also general information about Oahu. I would definitely use this company again for a tour next time I visit Hawaii as this was a very memorable experience. Mahalo!

My husband and I did the tour last week with Alex and it was very worthwhile. We felt like we escaped the crowds of Waikiki for a little while. Unlike the bus tour we took earlier in the week we felt like we had enough time to see everything and got great tips on how to use our camera and iPhones better. We saw where Jurassic Park and Hawaii five O filmed and got great shots of the ocean and blow hole. Thanks for a great tour Alex!
