We found this company while we were at the marketplace at the stadium last Sunday. The 2 guys that spoke to us were awesome although they did say we had 2 hours to snorkel and would spend some a hour at the Dole plantation ( we spent half the time for these activities quoted) so that was a big bummer. Our Tour guide Greg was FANTASTIC! We loved him he’s knowledgeable and knows his Hawaii! He was very patient (no matter how many times people needed to stop and use the bathroom) with everyone even though we were behind schedule at a few different stops. We would love to go on another tour with Gregg when we come back to Oahu! His sense of humor and interaction with his group is what makes him the best tour guide ever!

Great experience from our first chat with Makani about the tour who sold it very well to our great tour guide Keith who was humorous,knowledgeable,friendly and just an awesome guy.We had 12 family and friends on holiday so had our own shuttle which just made it better for us. The sites were amazing and too many to mention and the 9 hours flew by as just had to much fun to worry about time. So highly recommend this tour if you want to see and hear about Oahu's hidden treasures. Maholo Dean/Jacqui & friends

We visited Go Hawaii shortly after we arrived in Honolulu. We were able to secure tours to several things we wanted to do and, after agreeing to a resort visit, got very impressive discounts on our sightseeing activities!

"Excellent tour, painful explanation of tipping culture"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 01, 2020
The tour started well being picked up exactly on schedule. Our tour guide - before leaving Waikiki - delivered a speech about tipping etiquette. Essential facts like his $9 per hour salary, the income-expenditure gap in Hawaii, ‘international customers not understanding how it works’, his status as a born and bred local were not forgotten. His conclusion was - I will make sure you have a good time, and if you do I expect you to provide me 15-20% of the retail price of the tour in cash at the end. He then announced our first stop was at shop which had an ATM where you could withdraw money for lunch and for tips. Wow. Despite this hideous start to the day, the tour was exceptional. Our guide had an extraordinarily good grasp of when to talk, and when to leave us to relax. He timed the visits really well, he engaged with guests and he really was a cut above what I am used to. He did, though, find time to tell his about his 12 hour working days, and remind us that he was a tour guide and not housekeeping; asking us to ensure we ‘left the beach at the beach’ and not leave sand in the bus, apply suncream in the bus etc. The snorkelling itself was a fairly quick stop where very few of the group spotted any turtles, there was no instruction on how to use the equipment and the cleaning of equipment between groups was minimal. Alas, we were returned on time and we enjoyed our day.
