We did this tour on day three of our month long vacation to the Hawaiian islands, and of all the things we did on our trip of a lifetime, this was my favorite. My husband and I were traveling with our 6 year old daughter and 7 year old son, so I had booked a private island tour after e-mailing with Alex. We were lucky enough that both Alex and Chris guided our tour, WHAT AN AMAZING DAY! My kids had a blast, Alex was great in laughing at my son's silly jokes and both guys made an effort to point out things that would be of particular interest to the kids (like a huge dead blowfish and an amazing spider web). They are gave us a tailored tour of the island, full of history and facts. They were full of so much information, we all had so many questions. We learned all about the trees and flowers of Hawaii, the animals, how the seasons effect the waves. We covered so much ground, and feel like we made two new friends. I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer, but focus on portraiture and not landscapes. Chris and Alex both gave great advice and helped adjust my camera settings, they essentially gave me a mini-class that helped kickstart my vacation's photo exploration. The day starts early, and it is SO worth it. They picked us up in the dark and took us to a deserted beach, as the sun was coming up it was hard to concentrate on it because of the 360 degrees of beauty. For the rest of the day, as we kept moving from one picture perfect spot to the next, they pointed out all of the island's amazingness. Later in our trip, when we had a rental car and drove around Oahu and other islands, we better appreciated these places Alex has worked for years to discover. He makes it seem like every corner holds these amazing images, but sadly can be hard to discover on you own. So much time and care has gone into choosing just the spot for you to take that shot that looks like the postcard everyone else is sending home. This tour was worth every penny.
