We chose this package with this company thinking we had booked with a Pearl Harbour site direct? Also ticking the lunch option and believed that this included entry onto all vessels. Were we wrong. $929.85 USD We were collected for our 9.5 hour day at 5.45am from our hotel arrived at Pearl Harbour gates till opened had time to browse around before our first scheduled stop of the tour. The actual movie footage prior to boarding the boat to the Arizona that was still closed due to reopen in 3 days time. Prior to this however we had tried to look at the USS BOWFIN and were told we were required to pay $15.75 we to walk on we refused as thought it was included. My husband went looking for Steve and our bus to no avail we then went to the information desk on site at Pearl Harbour to be told not included. So that was that. We then proceeded to the USS MISSOURI now this ship is something else. She is a stunner and well worth climbing her to see the declaration and stand on her to take in what just happened all those years ago. After this we did eat some yummy food and then taken swiftly white knuckle ride to Blue Hawaiian Helicopters as just my husband and I were going on the air component of this journey. THIS WONT DISSAPPOINT YOU this was amazing. The thing that did annoy us was sitting in Blue Hawaiian Helicopters waiting room for approximately 90+ mins because our Pearl Harbour tour was cut short . So this is why choose your tour company properly we thought as I said was direct with Pearl Harbour but all our other tours were with Roberts were faultless??? And no white knuckles

Response from Adventuretourshi, Owner at Adventure Tours Hawaii
Responded Sep 1, 2019
Aloha Andie, This review is for the wrong company. It sounds like your looking for Roberts Hawaii? I'm not sure which company you booked with but my company, Adventure Tours Hawaii does not offer an Air Land and Sea Package to Pearl Harbor. We are a small company that only offers activity island tours where our guests can snorkel, hike, and sightsee on Oahu. We do not offer any helicopter tours. Can you please remove this review and repost it to the company which operated your tour? The negative review poorly reflects our TripAdvisor listing. All the best, Thanks!

My first visit to Oahu and I wanted to experience as much as I could without the rush of the bigger group tours. Adventure Tours fit the bill. Contacted Shane and explained what I wanted to experience. He was very accommodating and after a few questions, he had an itinerary planned. I booked a full day island tour. He took me around “off the beaten path” as I requested, saw a different part of Oahu that most don’t see and at a very relaxed pace. Got to see a lot but not as much as I wanted but that was my doing because Shane was on my time frame and stayed as long as I wanted at each site. He was very knowledgeable easygoing and made it such a great experience, that I booked a second day tour with him, which was just as amazing. Would definitely book another tour when I go back.

I booked with this company after reading reviews on TA. Shane is the owner and he was the one taking us out for the day. When I reserved, months in advance, we spoke at length on the phone about my family's experience hiking, etc and what we would be interested in doing. He asked for our fin sizes for snorkeling and we chose lunch options. When the trip rolled around months later, it was like we had spoken just the day before! He showed up in front of our hotel exactly on time with fins, snorkels, drinks, bottled water and lunch all packed in the van ready to go. We had a day of adventure, including snorkeling, turtle watching, amazing views, hiking to a waterfall and cliff diving (which sounds scary, but it was actually very safe). We stopped at a place to sample macadamia nuts and another road side stand to buy some local fruits and try fresh lychee and mountain apples. Shane was full of all sorts of information and was very well versed on the flora and fauna and the history of the area. Having a private tour personalized to our needs sounds pricey, but this was really a bargain for what we got. Driver, equipment, lunch, etc. We went to places we would not have been comfortable by ourselves (where should we park, is this the right way, are our valuables safe, etc), so I can't recommend it enough. Plus, he gave us good advice on some things to check out on the big island when we were there later in our trip. He also hooked us up with a great company for surf lessons a couple of days later on Waikiki. Thanks Shane, for helping us have a wonderful trip!!

This is our 4th trip to Oahu and every time, we have been thrilled to work with Shane and Adventure Tours Hawaii; we'd never do it without him!. When we first met several years ago, we did a private tour with Shane. Over the years, he has expanded the company to offer what he thinks are the best tours of the islands beyond what he offers with his own custom tours. And as much as I love and rely on Trip Advisor, my wife and I love and trust Shane when it comes to Hawaii. We actually did 2 private tours with Shane this time. We were in Oahu celebrating our son's 21st birthday so Shane & Jay did a day to themselves. A couple of days later, all 3 of us went out. Both days were awesome - and completely different!!! We also took advantage of Adventure Tours Hawaii's other offerings including a day-long photo tour (my wife is a professional photographer), scuba diving @ Sharks Cove and surfing lessons at Waikiki. Every one of them was FANTASTIC! Adventure Tours Hawaii offers something for everyone. Their private tours are completely custom to what you like to do. Other tours that you book through their site are fully vetted and fantastic - the best of Hawaii. And let's face it... you're looking at Trip Advisor because you are looking for expert opinions on the best things to do and places to go, right? Shane is the local personification of that in Hawaii. Could not be better!

Our guide/host was Shane, company owner. He picked us up at our hotel. My wife kinda had an idea what she wanted to do so I let her customize it as she wanted. We did a combination of sightseeing, as we stopped off at various scenic points along the shore and took pics. Shane assisted with our pics! Then off to snorkelling and we actually came “this close” to a 2 1/2 foot long sea turtle - several times! This alone was worth it...they almost never come that close to shore. Make sure you request the right size for swim fins as it will help! Then, we went to another scenic beach and hung out while Shane got us lunch. After that, a waterfall hike...now, this was worth it but I should warn you, LOTS of mud in many areas ( but it had poured the night before ) and LOTS of uneven terrain and rocks ( yes, big boulders that you climb up and over ). I’m 61 and not in bad shape, but I have accumulated my share of ankle injuries, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis over time and I was nervous about twisting my foot or slipping and getting banged up. Long story short, never fell, Shane helped with busting me off a walking stick from a tree to assist in balance. I myself would describe this as an intermediate to early advanced hike. I don’t think you need strong cardio, but you had better wear good gripping shoes and be 100% prepared to get them 100% wet ( soaked ) as you WILL need to step in ankle deep water at the 95th percentile guarantee level! So bring a pair or two of extra socks and a second pair of sandals or footwear. View at the waterfall was wonderful! Lots of muddy footwear at the end though. Shane wore flip flops but he was experienced - that’s not for beginners! Was a long tour ( did another easier hike after that ). Good value for the money and always cook to see residential areas outside Waikiki. Tour can and will be customized to your adventure level and age/fitness level.
