Let me start by saying I actually did go on the tour. Ryan who is my guide was awesome. Knowledgeable of the area and all the sites extremely friendly, he just made the trip an excellent experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to see the island around Waikiki and Diamondhead. Taking a trip like this gives you a chance to set up the places that you’ll go after the tour. Go with Ryan you will not be disappointed.

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.

Was a fantastic cruise with wonderful service and a very knowledgeable crew. We saw humpback whales breaching and followed about 3 whales throughout the cruise. Magical!

Outstanding experience! Saw plenty of whales and dolphins. Crew was excellent and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.

super informative. seen a lot of the island by using this app!
