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!

Our guide Noah took my family and I to Manoa Falls today. He was informative, funny and caring throughout, ensuring our two kids were keeping up and feeling ok. The jungle hike was amazing as was the waterfall itself. Afterwards, we enjoyed lunch at Tantalus Lookout. We highly recommend this tour!
