What people are saying about Oahu

This was a fun experience. I have never been on an atv before, so I was a bit nervous. But everything went well. I enjoyed our stops where we learned about some of the culture, including playing large drums, splitting a coconut, and playing a traditional stick game. The only problem was finding the place; it's quite hidden in a residential area and the location is wrong on Apple Maps.

Staff were great, gave us encouragement, made jokes and did an awesome job on giving the riders en excellent adventure they’ll treasure and maybe put it again in their bucket list. Highly recommend to family and friends.

The guys were great. Gave us all a great experience and the lady at the front was kind enough to airdrop our photos to us. Highly recommend

The guys were great and so much fun! I felt safe and relaxed even after getting sea sick. Lol

I’m so glad I booked this last excursion for our trip! It was so much fun. My son loved it.
