We had a superb time on the tour. A great way to see some sights, with lots of added details and history from our driver, Ray.

He was a terrific driver, kept everyone on schedule and pointed out or stopped at many nice stops.

Thanks Ray, you are the best!

I was in Hawaii for a conference and had some free time. I booked this tour after a small research and picked it because it had all the spots I wanted to visit. Kurt, our driver and guide showed up exactly on time the next morning and made sure that we were all happy and safe during the day. Very funny and full of stories! I tried SUP for the first time and loved it (even though I fell in and lost my sunglasses… ). Oahu is gorgeous and I was blown away by the size of the waves at the North shore! Can’t wait to visit again!

We travelled with Kurt, our tour guide, who was extremely knowledgeable, incredibly fun and had the best interests of every person on his tour bus. The tour was fantastic and we swam under a waterfall, saw an extremely rare blow hole, kayaked along with turtles and ended our time with a delicious pineapple whip. I’ll keep the memories made today for the rest of my life. Thanks Kurt and team!

Super informative, super interesting and overall great. Ray is a great driver and a great host, those who travel with him are in good hands. Go kayaking/paddle boarding with Blue Planet - lots of tortoises in the water and on shores, also a Dole ice cream is a must!
