This tour is next level sightseeing. We mostly used our iPhones and Kurt had a lot of great suggestions for settings and such. My friends and family didn’t believe I took the pics I sent them. The vibes were relaxed and chill. My only regret is not booking the longer tour. Mahalo to Kurt and Oahu photo tours for a great experience.

Great tour! Hiked Diamond head, saw dole and macadamia nut plantations, took us to few beaches to see, saw sea turtles in one of them, ate delicious food at food trucks! Our guide was very kind and considerate of anyone’s needs! I would highly recommend!
