This was by far the best tour I have ever been on. Kale was amazing and knew so much of the history of the island. We got to experience hidden gems of Oahu, such as beautiful landscapes and beaches and meeting wonderful local people. Kale makes you feel like family and his love of the island is evident and contagious. We were fortunate to have found KaPili Tours and it was the highlight of our trip. Without taking this tour we would have missed out on so much of the beauty, culture and charm Oahu has to offer. I highly recommend taking this island adventure, you will not be disappointed!

Kale was fabulous. It was great having a tour with a local who knew the places off the beaten path and the history of the island. We spent time at some amazing destinations we never would have discovered without him and he we had great places to eat and swim. We were able to customize our tour as much as we wanted or kick back and let him choose the places. I cannot believe the beauty of this island once you get away from the tourist places! Thanks so much Kale!

I took this tour after recommendations posted on site. They were completely true, The owners of the tour company did such a great job taking care of us. It wasn't just a tour of the island. We got to see all of the things that the big bus companies can't do, You get to see what is really left of old Oahu. It was as much an educational trip as it was an expedition.We got to Interact in meaningful ways with locals and hear that they are doing to maintain their living culture. Not a tour for people into gift shops. We did stop at one near the end, but we also stopped at a shrimp place and a fruit stand. The locals are great . Keep county country...brudha!!!!!

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we were so happy that we picked this full day, entire island tour. Kale tailors the tour to what you would like to see - but it's not just what you see, it's how you see it. We enjoyed Kale's personality and introducing us to not just local flavors, but local people. He not only shares the Island history, but imparts an understanding of the native culture. Make sure you bring cash because many of the places you stop do not take credit cards. I'd highly recommend this tour!

We had an amazing time! We saw so much and got so many amazing pictures! He asked us what we wanted to do and if there was anything we wanted to see and he obliged. I wanted to check out the Pipe Masters surf tournament on the North Shore and we went first thing! He jumped off a cliff into the water at Laie Point! Best tour guide I've ever had! He was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about his "rock". He offered us the Hawaiian experience we were looking for. I will book with Kapili on my next visit for sure! P.s. the fried bananas at the local market are to die for!
