Initially it sounded great and don't get me wrong it was amazing. The problem that I found was we given our options and we selected nature walk and waterfall swim for our morning activity we we were dropped off and were expected to walk ( which easily takes about 20 minute ) there is transport that takes you down to...

Our first trip to Honolulu and the North Shore. Sam was our tour guide and what a great job he did. The North Shore was spectacular. Sam took us to all the famous beaches and was well organised for the activities they offer. Would thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to visit the Nth Shore. My family and I... More

Our second trip with the Surf Bus in a couple of weeks was once again a fantastic journey. Picked up on time by Acey (a wealth of local knowledge) and did the usual pickups around Waikiki. Heading to the North Shore for round two of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Acey gave us a non stop commentary of local... More

Was perfect for what we wanted!! Didn't want to do a tour that involved sitting on a bus all day, so this tour was awesome because we were out doing stuff the whole time, and you get to pick and choose what you do to make it suited to whatever you please! Absolutely loved it and highly recommend

Would definitely recommend this tour for the more outdoorsy active people! My husband and I really enjoyed the whole day! We rode bikes up to sunset beach then SUP boarded down a beautiful river! You are mainly out of the bus for most of the day experiencing the north shore rather then seeing it from the bus window! Thank you... More

Great way to see the north shore. We saw so much and did so much too. Our guide was great. We swam in a falls and paddle boarded. Saw the Bonzi pipeline . Very cool!

Great tour. Pupukea Lagoon was the highlight. The driver was very knowledgable and patient with people late returning to bus. Boards at Haleiwa hire place in need of updating, staff were ok at hire place - only disappointment of tour.

Our driver/guide for the day was Sam. Very polite and shared lots of local info. We took our family for the day. My daughter and I went to the waterfall and beach in the morning while my husband and son went snorkeling. Grabbed some lunch, took in some shopping and then hit the beach to see a few turtles. Overall... More

Love the personal time and the driver was friendly and very knowledgeable! The time on your own was perfect and you weren't stuck on the bus for most of the trip!

Had a great day on the north shore with this tour. Managed to squeeze a lot in without feeling rushed. Very informative tour guide and the choice of activities is a great idea. My partner and I chose the waterfall hike for the morning activity and for the afternoon we chose surfing lessons - cannot recommend this enough. Was the... More
