“north shore tour”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

even though it was rainy that day the tour took you to 12 spots around the north shore, my tour guide was knowlegeable and friendly. we stopped at a shrimp truck for lunch and food was great. although we went to turtle beach to snorkel it was a little too much waves for me and we didnt see turtles it was a great location and experience. the tour gives you a bases to come back on your own a revisted places. the tour was small and quiet and relaxing

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

My daughter and I did the all day tour with Christian and Dwayne. Pick up was smooth and we were quickly on our way. The guys kept us entertained the whole day, and the threat of doing a hula dance to the last person back on the bus kept everyone on time and we also had quite a few laughs. The highlight was seeing the turtles on the beach. The snorkelling was great and we saw plenty of colourful fish. Could have sat on the beach all afternoon. It was a lovely spot. Lunch was OK, maybe a little pricey but very tasty. Christian was full of information and had great stories all day, and always checking up on everyone at each stop, always stopping to chat and pointing out interesting things. Dwayne did a wonderful job beating the trafffic. Overall a wonderful day thanks Christian and Dwayne.

“Fantastic way to see the sights.”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Had a great day and well worth the money. Would have to say what made the tour was our guide/driver, "Uncle Billy". Made us laugh, was informative and added a bit of local "flavor" to the tour. I had my mother and my son and all 3 of us loved the day. We left feeling like we got out monies worth and with smiles on our faces. An extra special thanks to our guide for a memorable day. Cheers Vanessa, Anita and Patrick.

“Against the Grain”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

I know we are going against the grain of these reviews, but this was not good. A drive around Oahu, with a few stops for photos and to let some passengers smoke, was basically what it was. No stopping at Fumi's Shrimp Truck - they had a "better" place, which actually wasn't. Food was poor, we would not have paid for that meal if we had a choice. No stopping at Turtle Beach, they had a "better" beach, which turned out to be kind of surfy (it is the North Shore, after all) and not the best choice for people who maybe don't feel comfortable snorkeling in surf, especially when no fins were provided, or other protection against the rocks for your feet. Tour guide took off for an hour, we were left on the beach until he returned. Guess what? No turtles.

“The Best”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We took the tour on Apr 16 with Christian and Tommy and we had a fabulous day. Christian asked at the end what our favorite part of the tour was and we could not say as it was all so perfect. The best driver- so funny and knowledgeable. The best host - hilarious, entertaining and went out of his way to make our day special. Great sights, food, ice cream, and yes, he found us lots of turtles. We would definitely recommend this trip, but you better ask for Christian and Tommy!
