Excellent time. Sam was very knowledgeable of the islands history. Easy to follow the plan which allowed great flexibility in what we wanted to do. Highly recommend this tour!

Took the Surf Bus to the north shore. It was a lovely way to see the area, and we had plenty of time to go snorkeling (which we did), stand up surfing (which we didn't - do you tell jokes?), biking and several other things. We also had a great garlic shrimp meal. The driver Sam was relaxed and knowledgeable. We recommend this as an alternative to sitting in a bus all day and stopping for short periods of time.

The excursion was broken up into 2 segments; 1st is 3 hrs and 2nd is 1.5 hrs. The first segment offers the most available activities (waterfall, snorkeling, bicycling, beach) and the second part of the day only offers stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, visiting local shops. Sam was super knowledgeable of the history of so many things that we encountered on the way. The other tourists were great as well!

This tour is ideal if you wanna be able to go off on your own and enjoy activities on north shore. Tour guides are very knowledgeable about the island and can answer almost any question. We did the waterfall which is absolutely breathtaking and an escape from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We also decided to do kayaking which was a lot of fun and left enough time to still walk down the town and explore before heading back on the bus. Lots of freedom and time to enjoy north shore.
