This was one of our favorite excursions while on Oahu. Our tour guide,Ciarra, was amazing!! We took this tour on our first day and she set the stage for the rest of our vacation. She was so personable, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. We felt that we gained a friend at the end of the day. Not only did we see the beauty of the island, but learned so much about the history.
