Where do I start, we took in so much information and sight seeing of this beautiful island. Kale was an excellent tour guide, the van took 10 people, we only had 6 on the tour so we weren't rushed in any way. The places we were taken were divine, being able to see the Real Gilligan's Island, Chinaman's hat, Blow holes and so much more.
I can highly recommend this tour and its a MUST do, Kale asked us what we wanted to see and adjusted the tour to suit our needs which was nice.

KaPili Tours is run by a husband and wife, both teachers. The tours are in a small van with a max of 10 (would be tight), but there were only 4 of us on the tour. Kale was fun and knowledgeable. He is willing to adjust the tour to your wishes, so be sure to tell him what you want to see. Kale picked us up about 8:15 and we go back to Aulani about 6:15. We took the tour when we first arrived and it was a great intro to the island. We stopped at many beaches, and we were given as much time as we wanted. Stopped at a local fruit stand and a local place for lunch (places we wouldn't have stopped on our own, but enjoyed). We especially wanted to see Pili and Punchbowl and he included both. He avoided what he called "tourist traps", but if you don't have a car you might want to ask for a stop at Dole.... yes it's a tourist trap and crowded, but we went back on our own and got some gift shopping done. Kale was a pleasure to spend the day with. He felt like family. It was well worth the $$. Be sure to let him know up front what you want to see.

We did circle the island and learn a lot of history. Our group of five were the only ones on the tour so the accommodations were good. Any more than 7 it would have been a miserable ride. However we breezed right by diamond head and were not offered the opportunity to go to the lookout as advertised. We also flew right past Hanalua bay with the explaination that the people weren't friendly and it cost $7.50 to park. We would gladly have paid the parking fee. Those were the two big things for me. Also, there was no free fruit or snacks until after we had purchased some. The lunch stop was a road side stand not very clean and no restrooms. Kale got free snacks and lunch from the vendors yet criticized the tour companies that get kickbacks from their stops. We enjoyed watching the surfers but don't bother to pack a suit... Never offered the opportunity to experience the ocean. We bought our own water because it was not offered until we got back to the hotel. Then kale gave us half a case. It would have been nice on the ride! Kale did help us out finding a parking space for our rental car.

What a fun day to see the island through the eyes of a local. We were shown areas we would never have found and learned a lot about Ouahu. We would definately do this tour again. Thank you for a wonderful day, Kale.
