What people are saying about Haleiwa

Hiking Diamond Head before sunrise was one of the most unique adventures we experienced in Hawaii. This tour was the highlight of our vacation. Jonah was the best guide: personable, accommodating, patient, and knowledgeable. Starting our day early with the hike up to Diamond head gave us a sense of accomplishment and allowed us to connect to nature first thing in morning before driving around North Shore. Unlike any other tour! Highly recommend very memorable experience!

This was perhaps the best tour we've taken on the Hawaiian islands. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and gave us a bit of information about practically everything we passed on our way to the major sites.

We had a great tour guide. It was nice to see the rest of the island and all the other places to return too. It was definitely worth it for us.

Highly interactive trip with ful filled activities to keep the tour engaging and interesting.
