We travelled in by cruise ship and only had a limited time to take in some of the sights. We were met by Koki from Karma Tour in a very comfortable, clean and well equipped SUV. Koki advised us we were the only two on the tour, so we had very personal service. What a treat !

Koki was a great tour guide. She was very friendly, laid back, and knowledgeable. We had a great time on the tour. I liked the fact that it was a small group, just my family and another couple. I would definitely book with Karma tours again when we visit Oahu next year.
