This was an awesome tour!! I appreciated the advanced communication via text and email the day before, which helped me feel fully prepared. I was a bit nervous about the trip since I am not too experienced with riding a bike in a city. But Ryan clearly went over how to ride the e-bike, and took me on a practice ride around the block so I could get used to it. He stopped at some sites along our ride which I didn’t expect, and explained some history and gave some valuable context. He also is an expert about Waikiki in general and could answer all my one-off questions well. I felt comfortable throughout my ride, even though we did need to drive alongside some traffic to get out and into the city. The hike was less difficult than I expected, although there were some slippery spots. I appreciated how he came prepared with bug spray to share! The poke spot that we stopped at for lunch felt extra special and was delicious! Overall, I learned a lot and feel like I saw a lot too!

If you’re looking at options for touring Oahu, look no more. I promise you THIS IS THE TOUR GUIDE FOR YOU. Shane will ask about your interests and your schedule and will far exceed your expectations. He’s flexible, accommodating, friendly, attentive, energetic - everything you need for a day of seeing the sights. We plan to recommend Shane to everyone we know. We thought of our Hawaii vacation as a once-in-a-lifetime thing but are actually thinking of coming back again after learning so much about the island from Shane! And if/when we do, we will definitely look him up for more of his island expertise. I’d give ten stars if I could. Simply outstanding.

Had a great day out with Mac. He kept us entertained the whole way with his knowledge and expertise! Got some really fantastic photos to make everyone at home jealous. Would recommend to anyone who’s looking for a shorter tour to take in a lot of beautiful sights, we even saw some whales swimming quite close to the coast. The perfect last day in Oahu!

Overall a good experience. It seems like we didn’t need to be picked up at 5am to sit on the bus for 45 minutes until the gate opens. Communicating that before and the reason would be helpful. Otherwise, it was a decent adventure for price and convenience to access the trail.

Ryan was an excellent guide and the e-bikes were the best we have ridden. Great combo of riding and a bush-walk with lots of local information shared along the way. Thanks Ryan for a great family experience.
