Kale is simply the best, we felt like family! He's fair with everyone on the tour so that you can visit whichever stops around the island of Oahu and gives you insights on the hidden local gems as well as guiding you through some history of the island. Our family had a blast and we will be back next year for another trip with Kale just because he is now a part of our extended ohana in Hawaii.

I didnt actually go on this tour because I had trouble with their website booking and ended up receiving a rude email from the owner.
I live in NZ and was visiting Honolulu for my birthday. Being on my own and trying to see as much as possible on a budget, I bought a Groupon voucher. But when I tried booking a date the voucher code wouldn't work. I emailed Kale (owner)to try and sort it out but she/he wasn't very helpful. Kept telling me to visit the website, and at one point told me the voucher worked their end. Long story short, the website didn't have the correct button to choose.
My final reply from Kale was: you have totally wasted my time, I don't appreciate that.
I'm sorry Kale felt like this but I also felt like it was a total waste of my time as well.
After this reply I cancelled my booking and bought another tour from a different group. The tour sounded wonderful so please try it. Next time I'm in Honolulu I might contact them again and try a second time.

This was the second time in two years doing this tour and first for my daughter. It was a great time. No two tours are alike. KaPili, goes above and beyond as a tour guide. When you leave his tour, you feel like family. Also you learned a lot about Oahu. Very knowledgeable about the Island. Highly recommend his tours. Thanks for s great time Thanks Miami group too. We had such a great time touring the Island with you too.

Mr. KaPhili was so pleasant and hospitable. He is definitely a family man and love what he does. He's great with knowledgeable information about the island and the Hawaiian heritage. He educates you with so much and he truly loves the Hawaii locals. I suggest this tour because he makes you feel like family. Mahola
