Great decision!We had a great day with Stu, everything worked out perfectly! Starting with excellent communication even though I booked on short notice, called in the morning and text for arrival time, which was exactly precisely on time. Throughout the day, we were asked what we were happy with what we were comfortable with and what we wanted to do. We enjoyed the sights and the experiences a great deal. I had done the bus tour option last year and this was definitely a great option to maximize time and what we got to see, including areas buses can't go. Highly recommend!

Oahu Half Day Tours come highly recommended from my husband and I. Booking the tour was professional and effortless. Customizing the tour was great. Our island guide, a local & resident, Bon Jovi, took all our requests into consideration. He added local stops we couldn't know about but others knew, and they were great! He was great. We saw more of the island than imagined. Best tour of our lives. A 9-10 hour tour was not a possibility. This was the best!

"Wow, what a ride! This half day tour around Oahu was a thrilling adventure from start to finish. Our guide was full of energy and kept us entertained with fun facts and stories. We got to see some breathtaking views and visit iconic landmarks, but the best part was the wild ride on the winding roads of the North Shore. This tour is not for the faint of heart, but if you're up for a little excitement, it's definitely worth it."

First of all, I have to say that the tour was absolutely amazing! From start to finish, our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.The tour began with a pick-up from our hotel in Waikiki and we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome from our guide. Throughout the tour, our guide shared fascinating information about the island's history, culture, and landmarks. We were able to see some of the most breathtaking views of Oahu, including the lush green mountains and crystal clear waters.One of the highlights of the tour was the visit to the famous North Shore. We got to see some of the world's best surfers riding the waves and enjoyed some free time to explore the local shops and restaurants. We also got to stop at a beautiful beach where we had the chance to take some amazing photos and dip our toes in the ocean.The tour was very well organized and we never felt rushed or like we were missing out on anything. Our guide made sure to keep us on schedule, but also allowed us to take our time at each stop and soak in the beauty of the island.Overall, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Oahu. It was the perfect way to see some of the island's most iconic sights in a short amount of time. Our guide was exceptional and made the tour an unforgettable experience. I would definitely do it again!

I was already taking few tours in ohau but this one day with bonjovi was exceptional by far he is down for another level of adventures and really thinking always outside the box took us to many places in few hours secret spots that only local will know about you can definitely tell the difference when you getting a tour from a native Hawaiian like bonjovi he also could give a good explanation on each spot that we been through he do his job with joy and all of his heart the tour was very good and his vibe was even better.Highly recommended !!!
