Justin was our tour guide, and he was amazing and truly knowledgeable. Justin guided my boys to the spot where they both saw some turtles during the Snorkeling part. I truly appreciate this action from him. I would do this tour again and honestly recommend it to everyone. I also recommend this to be one of your first tours as soon as you get to Hawaii since we got many places to visit after per Justin's recommendation.

Everything were great and very good. It’s our first time so we learn lot of things. Great experience. Isaac and Wilbert are great tour guides.

Booking and communication was excellent prior to and throughout the tour. Justin was friendly, energetic, interesting, passionate about the island and made time to interact with each of us. Impressive given this wasn’t new to him. Pace was good with the day flying by…great way to get familiar with the island.

Our guide Raoul was awesome! We were picked up from Waikiki and headed around the island. Raoul had tons of information, and we got lots of great photos from different spots. Excellent lunch at the shrimp shack, bring cash! Snorkeling was great. Swimming with turtles was so cool :-) On Wednesday, the Dole plantation is closed, so we did an alternate stop which was fun. You get a wonderful overview of the island and a fun snorkel. Enjoy!

Great weather, wonderful guide, and yes - saw turtles! The time went by quickly and Justin made sure we covered everything. Mini-bus is the way to go and thanks to Ryan for getting us there and back. So easy and enjoyable, would definitely recommend. Was especially nice to hear some of Justin's experiences growing up on the island.

Cate and Wilbert were awesome! Cate shared her love for the island and gave an amazing tour experience through that lens. This was our first time to the Island and first tour of the island and we got the “A” team right out of the gate. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Oahu.

Our tour guide Kory was awesome and the drive (sorry I’m forgetting his name). If you want a fun time where the guide is funny and does more then just point things out request Kory! He was cracking jokes and making the whole experience 10x better. Our friends went on the same tour but a different guide and they had a good time but no where near the great time we had. It’s a really cool tour, you get to do a little bit of everything and go all over the island. You don’t need to worry about eating before you go. We got great souvenirs on the tour and amazing food. Highly recommend this tour especially when you first get to Hawaii there are a lot of cool things you will find on the tour to do in later days and seeing the turtles was a fun experience. The water was a bit murky but it was still a good time and we would definitely do it again.

Mike is a very entertaining tour guide. Gave us so much tips about how to make our trip more worthwhile; the turtles we saw were huge. I just hoped the water is not as murky when we went and longer time snorkeling. But definitely will recommend this tour as a starter tour for Oahu
