This was a great activity to start the day. The staff was really helpful, I don’t remember his name (tall guy with a beard) who set me up was super in getting me everything I needed and answered all my questions. You get a map with 6 stops that are all cool and it’s up to you how long you want to stop or even if you want to stop. If you’re looking for a way to see some sites where you control how long you stay at each spot it’s perfect.

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!

Short, but challenging hike. Good amount of time spent kayaking, so bring sunscreen. Nathan was our tour guide, and was excellent! Very knowledgeable and easy going.

Had the absolute best trip with Jackson and Manny! The sights were spectacular and açaí bowls were divine. Highly recommend this experience.

It was totally awesome! Gabriel was wonderful! He was very helpful and made the trip very fun. I would totally do again. Thanks Gabriel
