This tour was really one of the highlights of our trip. The guide, Chris (Roger), was funny & took time with each person personally to give history on the sites. He also was giving people recommendations for things to do on the island, that you don't just hear everywhere. We loved hanging with him, and would've loved for the tour to have gone on longer. The small group was perfect. Nobody felt left out or ignored. And we got to spend as long as we wanted at each place. The price is amazing for the day you get. Absolutely worth it!

Micah was our guide on Monday and we enjoyed being driven to the beautiful locations with Micah explaining different past and current history about the island from the homes, plants, animals and neighboring islands. He shared information on different hikes we should try as well as giving us tips on how to better use our cameras and tips for our i phones. He made the day fun for each of us.

Had a great time on my vacation. Went to some amazing spots. Mike really knows his stuff! Definitely recommend this to anyone

Kurt was fantastic! So much good energy, I had a great day exploring the east side!

Awesome tour. Good value. Parking limit at Honolulu Zoo for pickup is only 4 hours.
