    AMA-zing!!!
    AMA was a very thorough knowledgeable and enthusiastic gentleman. He showed us around mindful of rush hour traffic. He even offered to return to a store when I was missing an item which would’ve landed us in that traffic jam but I told him to skip it. AMA was a great story teller.

    A fantastic day!
    When looking for something different to do on Oahu we came across this tour and found the booking process and competitive pricing excellent. Today we completed a grand circle customizable tour with Eva. She was fantastic and accommodating to us all. Allowed for us to stop and enjoy many places throughout the day. We even stopped at a few places Eva recommended for some great photos. Eva was fantastic and informative throughout the day and we couldn’t recommend her more. Mahalo for a fantastic day!

    Great tour
    Eva was a great guide and was very knowledgeable about everything we saw. Took us to most of the highlights and even had a stop for local pineapple drinks. Would definitely recommend this tour and if you’re lucky enough to get Eva even better.

    Eva was fantastic! She made us feel comfortable from the moment she picked us up at our hotel. She has a wealth of knowledge of Hawaiian history and the events at Pearl Harbor. Friendly, historically knowledgeable and personable. Eva also gave us some great recommendations for food and other activities. I will definitely recommend using her to my friends. 6 Stars!

    Fantastic experience
    We had an amazing day out with Tom showing us the highlights of Oahu. We got to see everything we wanted to including magnificent Honu in the North shore. We had a fantastic lunch stop at Fumis for the delicious shrimp. Tom was so knowledgeable about all the locations and was a great person to spend our day with! Places visited included: coffee plantation. Dole plantation. Haleiwa town. Waimea falls. North shore - Shrimp lunch and Honu. Macadamia plantation. Entire east coast and a Japanese temple. I highly recommend this company for the professionalism and convenience.

    Ama made it special
    Our group of four really enjoyed our private Oahu Island Tour with Ama. Not only did he provide some great information and history, he added such a personal touch from his own experiences. He quickly picked upon our personalties and customized the stops that best fit what we really wanted to see. We had a fantastic lunch at a location we would have normally passed by. A bonus was the music played while traveling, as it was local artists, rather than the touristy Hawaiian background music. Everywhere we went, people knew and respected Ama. The tour was a welcome change from the crowds of Waikiki/Honolulu.

    Moving Tour and an Unexpected Twist
    There are two parts to my review - the first has to do with the tour company and then a review of the tour itself. The night before the tour, I received a call telling us that the air conditioning in the van wasn't working. I have MS and can not absolutely not get overheated. I said I would call back and let her know. I didn't know if my friends and husband might still want to go. They said "no" so I called. The woman who answered said that her manager was on the phone to see if he could get another driver to take us. She called me a few minutes later and said we were all set - same time, same tour. The next morning, we waited for our 15 passenger bus only to be greeted by a large SUV and driver that afforded us a private tour! Spiritual Tours went above and beyond in customer service and that means a great deal to us. That experience makes me recommend them without reservation. Our tour was wonderful - Art was a splendid tour guide. He was informative, friendly and careful. While this was a bit expensive, we had a timed ticket and did not need to spend a long time in line. I am not at all sure that I could have stood for that long in the unforgiving sun. The Pearl Harbor Memorial was a moving experience. It is difficult to capture the solemnity of such a place and, while we were there, everyone was suitably quiet and respectful. The memorial is now preceded by a 20 minute introductory video that "sets the mood" and reminds people that they will be in a cemetery. We then went to see the sights of Honolulu and learn a bit of history about the island itself. It was truly a wonderful tour and I would recommend both this company and this tour highly.

    Wonderful Company To Work With
    Eva was a fantastic tour guide. She allowed us plenty of time to visit Pearl Harbor and then toured us all around the Honolulu area - beautiful views, lots of history and fun facts - an unforgettable tour! Spiritual Tours Hawaii is a company you definitely want to tour with.

    Greatest Hawaiian Tour
    The best part was our guide Ama. Being a local himself he was able to tell us more than just the normal tour guide. We learned about how some of how Hawaii was formed and how and why some area are staying true to Hawaiian culture. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Hawaii. Not only is Ama a great guide we felt that we made a new friend as well.

    Great Experience!
    What a fun day! The ride was very clean and comfortable. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable - we learned all sorts of interesting things about the history of Hawaii. And, as an added bonus, she even took pictures for us in the places with the most beautiful views!

We had a wonderful time on this off-the-beaten tour. Between the small group and hitting up sites that we wouldn't have ever found or gone, it's definitely something different from the standard circle island tour. Bring something for the possible chance of rain as you will be in the mountains.

My wife and I booked this spiritual tour prior to our visit to Oahu and we both agreed that it was absolutely the best way to experience not only the island but a tear jerking soul search as well. Semina ( Simina?) was our guide and along with her pleasant and informative assistant ( not even going to try to spell her name) we were given a behind the scenes, backstage pass to the REAL Hawaiian spiritual history and island culture. We were shown the popular tourist attractions of course, but then, well, we got our butts kicked... because just a few steps away from the crowd, and hidden away, the real tour began. Not at just one stop folks! Each and every stop we were surprised by the gradual immersing of opening our minds, our hearts, and our souls to the spiritual connections at the sacred sites. This tour is not an act or a show. If you can have an open mind and are searching for spiritual growth this is a bucket list item. Just yards away from us,all day long,other visitors were totally unaware the spiritual experiences we were having as are hearts were filled and our souls enriched. Special thanks to our guides for being flexible and giving us this opportunity to reach out spiritually and understand Hawaii. Lifetime memory.

Our tour guide Leihoku was incredible from the moment we met her! She was so passionate about each and every sacred site we visited. Her passion was contagious. She led us through two beautiful meditations. We ended the day with a deep spiritual appreciation for the Hawaiian Islands and all of her inhabitants. I can not recommend this tour enough. It truly was the highlight of my time in Oahu!!

My family and I went on a sacred sites tour and it was absolutely amazing. Even my father and brother who were not as interested in spirituality/meditation enjoyed the tour very much. Our tour guide, Simina/Leihoku was very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and culture and told us many interesting stories. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Oahu to better understand its rich and beautiful culture and to visit some of the most special places on earth.

Although I’ve traveled to Oahu several times to visit family, during my most recent trip I had the wonderful opportunity to experience the Oahu Small Group Sacred Sites tour. It was an incredibly powerful 5 hours of "seeing, hearing, and feeling" the heart, spirit, and soul of the island. The history and lore of these sites were brought to life by Simina, who was not only informative, but clearly respectful and appreciative of the richness of both. I had the unique opportunity to share this participatory tour with a phenomenal group of 3 ladies and 1 gentleman, who brought their own senses of spirituality to the magical places that we visited that day.

While experiencing this tour, I was reminded of how important it is to honor the spiritual side of our world, wherever we may visit and wherever we may call home, and to always look for and appreciate the extraordinary in the ordinary-and the ordinary in the extraordinary. It’s been a plane ride and a few weeks back in Chicago since the tour, but this experience will remain with me for a very, very, long time. I recommend this tour to those seeking to learn [more] about sacred Hawaii, and those looking to uncover a little [more] about their own personal spirituality. Thank you Simina, my lovely group of friends, and beautiful Oahu for a stellar experience!

We took this tour by chance after meeting Simina. We spent around 5 hours touring the Sacred Sites, starting at Honolulu. Each one was carefully considered and the sense of chronology was powerful. Simina brings a lot of joy, Spiritual honour and so much knowledge. The tour shows a deep respect for these ancient sites and shows a very powerful side to Hawaii. It has certainly informed us to learn more. I strongly recommend this Tour and would go again whenever I am in Hawaii.

I took this tour together with some other ladies and we were a great group. Our tour guide Leihoku gave us the time to really enjoy every stop at sacred heiaus or places along the way. While driving we got all the information regarding the creation of the islands as well as a brief history of the islands, especially connected to the spiritual beliefs and early life in Hawaii. I recognized that these places were really hidden gems, as some of the participants were living in Hawaii, and even they did not know all the places we stopped. The combination of foreigners and locals was a great experience as you get a lot of knowledge, what living in Hawaii is about, which you normally would not get. The healing tide pools included a spiritual and cultural meditation and the Ulopo Heiau is very impressive. We also stopped at other great and wonderful beaches. Leihoku really adjusts well to their guests in regards to what they want and is very caring, so to let everybody feel this tour is just, what you were looking for.
Pick up from hotel and drop off at hotel was easy. Bring a hat, sunscreen and water as it can be very hot and sunny and definitely bring a camera.
We had lunch at Hare Krishna Temple and ate in the garden which was surprisingly cool, I can honestly say the food was so good, it was the best I had during my whole stay and the prize was very reasonable.
I recommend this tour for people interested in the spiritual, cultural and historical life of Hawaiians, which is still dominant today. For example I learned that every new building to be built today gets a blessing at various stages by a Kahuna (Hawaiian Priest). The tour also gives you valuable insight about present-day life in Hawaii.
A big Mahalo (Thank you in Hawaiian) to our tour guide Lehoku for that wonderful day!

We have been regular visitors to Oahu for over 30 years. We thought that we had seen it all, done it all and got a t-shirt. However, only when we decided to try the Sacred Site Tour were we put right. None of the tours we have been on the island before gave us such a fantastic experience. We knew so little about the native people of Hawaii, their culture and spirituality and what happened to it since it has been westernized.

Our guide Simina was an inspiration to listen to and a pleasure to be with. She made our experience truly memorable. If you are interested in the unseen aspect, this tour is a must. You won't be disappointed.
