We had a wonderful time exploring the North Shore despite the disappointment of being unable to go to Hanauma Bay. Kui made it a special trip for us all. We were a bit disappointed when one of your other guides got a bit pushy at the Fumi’s Kahuka’s Shrimp stand and squeezed his large group in front of us. Kui was a gentleman and didn’t make a big production out of it, but the guide was rude and disrespectful to the fact that the 6 of us were there first. All-in-all, it was a very memorable experience.

We had a blast at the tour Our guide jack was very knowledgeable, punctual and offered us a great insight into both the history of Hawaii and good places to check out. The tour was very comprehensive with a great overall tour of short north, Dole plantation and lastly our favorite part which was snorkeling at Hanoma Bay. Shout out to our driver Paul who was excellent and just fun to be around Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hawaii especially for the first time Nader
