My family spent two days touring Oahu with Makani. Great guy and really knows his stuff. We went surfing on the North Shore and to Pearl Harbor. He was great with our kids and knows both the cultural side of Hawaii and the military history

The tour gave us the ability to see things we were interested in with that special touch. Makani gave it that genuine Hawaiian feel. He is informative with respect to the history and culture and just fun to be with. Even though there are many tours to Peal Harbor, I think it was special because of his experience in the Marines. He was able to give insight into the memorial in addition to the historical context. We then headed to Chinatown, as we requested, take a hike to Kaniakapupu, the summer palace of King Kamehameha III, via a quiet path thru a bamboo "forest". I mentioned I would like to learn how to paddle board and he made it happen. I was a bit hesitant and nervous about it, but he totally put us at ease. My somewhat squeamish, not outdoor kids LOVED it. It was a highlight for them and we were able to spot some turtles up close. Lastly, he fulfilled their day by taking them for shaved ice and my husband, garlic shrimp. It was more than I can expect in any single day.

3 rookies spear fishing! What a blast. Our guide Hiram knows his Island; He is intellegent and was extremely easy to deal with. This company knows how to make you feel comfortable and does it the right way. When I return to Oahu, I will make sure I book my adventures with them

BONUS: He put us on the fish!

Best tour guide company in the world! Makani's knowledge of the island and the history was first class! Fun day driving around the island. Teenager surfed with turtles, adult paddle paddles with turtles!
He made us feel a part of his family.
Highly recommend that this will be the best part of your holiday.
Thank you for an awesome time.
