Enjoyed the hike and tour of Oahu. I was looking for a tour that included the hike up diamond head. It was early enough in the day that the hike wasn’t to busy. Beautiful scenery, some cool little stops along the way.

Hike to top of Diamond Head is not difficult, but provides a beautiful view of Honolulu and the crater. The rest of the trip was great too. The North Shore is also very beautiful.

Absolutely amazing!! Would definitely do this again. Very knowledgeable and we had a great day with tons of laughs.

Paul was amazing! Very friendly and informative. I’d definitely recommend to my friends and family :)

This is a must do!!!! I’ll be booking again when I return!! ☺️
