We had a great time touring Oahu with Real Hawai'i tours. Our private tour guide, Shannon, was a local from Honolulu that peppered in personal stories along with the history as we drove around. He made it so easy for us to add and adjust where we stopped. My father has trouble walking and he was so helpful with finding spots close for easy entry and exit from the car. The 7am pick up included an amazing first stop for coffee and a great day to follow. Highly recommend!

It was so nice to deal with a company that let me choose what we wanted to see and so instead of a cookie cutter tour that shows you what they want you to see and do. We spent our time seeing the parts of the island we wanted while Shannon told us the history of the island and answered our questions. We were not rushed through the tour and got to spend time seeing what was important to our family.

Our family did the Oahu Circle Island Tour. Jeffrey was our guide and he was phenomenal. We had a FULL day of seeing many amazing views and making special memories. We highly recommend this tour and Jeffrey. He was very personable and added so much to the tour with his knowledge of the island. He personalized our tour based on our interests and made sure we had time to enjoy every stop. This day far exceeded our expectations. This was by far one of the best days on a vacation we have ever had. Thank you Jeffrey!

Our O'ahu Private Island Tour took us to some predictable spots. We started with a drive up a mountainside that offered a sweeping view from Diamond Head to Pearl Harbor: a very nice overview. Then it continued to beaches (not really special to Californians), skirting the coastline, turning inland at Waimea and back to Honolulu. It was quite disappointing that we didn't visit the two places I had specifically requested twice: Pali Lookout and Punchbowl Cemetery.

I had done several bus tours of Oahu and wanted a more personalized experience, the Real Hawai'i delivered! It was like touring the island with a friend, customizable and more relaxed. Dan was able to show us areas and views we'd never seen during any of our prior trips and never would have been able to tour with a bus group. He was also gracious enough to take pictures during our stops. Mom and I will not soon forget the experience and hilarious conversation about shrimp legs. Thanks again Dan!

We are a family of 4 (kids 10 and 7 years) and had an AWESOME 1/2 day tour of North Shore with Tim. He was amazing at going to areas we were interested in, super nice and knowledgeable and engaging with the kids. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour company.

We've been to all islands and toured them all. First time with with The Real Hawaii. Everything went perfect from setting it up with Dan to our awesome private island tour with Patrick. We visited the main tourist places along with little local only private spots. Also great and safer with just our small family and Patrick. Can go most anywhere and was on our schedule to stay or go as we wanted. 5 star must do and the only way to see The Real Hawaii !!!

Wonderful tour of Oahu! Patrick was very accommodating and patient with our group. Willing to alter the route several times. We learned a lot and had a wonderful time! So much better than a bus trip!!

Hawaii’s North Shore favourites. Visit the beaches, turtles and foodie highlights. Comfortable, informative, and friendly exploration finding new experiences to treasure and enjoy. Great tour guide, listened to our needs and gave us the best day out! Highly recommend this tour, just wished I bought more than one piece of pie from Ted’s Bakery, so good!

We spent the day with The Real Hawai'i and had a great time. We appreciate the local knowledge, history, and stops at the beautiful spots. Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was very convenient. It was especially nice to enjoy the island without the stress of driving and navigating. Thanks for the great day!
