Mike was a great tour guide; very knowledgeable, laid back, and accommodating. We thought we were going to Diamond Head, but small deal that we didn’t. One thing that was bad, was the long walk to snorkeling place. The van should have dropped off in parking lot and left to wherever he had to wait. One man on our tour was on a cane and it took him a long time just to get to the park. He never did make it to the snorkeling place. The ones who did get to snorkeling area did see quite a few turtles, mostly from the shore, not while snorkeling. All in all, it was a good tour.

Great experience and fun tour! Kirk is a great tour guide! Entertaining and informative! We hit all the great spots. Love the personalization of the small bus tour! We stopped at great place for lunch. Best place for shrimp. North shore drive was beautiful! We were able to see about 83% of Hawaii. We got to snorkel, visit the Dole plantation and the macadamia nut farm. Harry did an awesome job driving us around and got us back safe! Overall a great tour and you will enjoy your visit to Hawaii visiting all the popular sites!
