"Uncle Kevin" was great. We did the botanical garden walk with the waterfall and the town tour. In hindsight, we should have done the double kayak instead of the town tour. Kevin was an amazing tour guide. He supposedly grew up on the island and shared a lot of knowledge of the island. Pickup and dropoff went smoothly. There are lockers available at the stops. Also, sushi at the Foodland was delicious and highly recommended!

Tour Guide and activities were great

"Uncle" Kevin was phenomenal. We have always had a car to drive to the North Shore but this was our first guided tour. It felt like we were visiting for the first time and learning all about all things Hawaiian. At one point, I asked if his favorite class in school was History. It was. He's very funny and approachable. Great tour guide! Oh! The activities were great. We were confused on the booking on when we could get lunch. You get lunch on your first stop and you are able to do both activities and get lunch. Also, pickup location was confusing on the details. The actual tour is 5 stars
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Uncle Kevin is an awesome tour guide and we’re glad you had a wonderful time on our tour of choices. Pick up locations can be confusing if you book through 3rd party apps, as their system’s don’t communicate well sometimes. Next time, book direct. We are the original and best north shore activity tour.

This excursion was definitely worth it. Cousin G was a great guide and our group was really chill. I definitely recommend the hike to the falls it was really good. I would take this tour again and choose other activities just to change it up. The snack stand was really good! Banana lumpia was lit.

The waterfall is beautiful. You are able to see plants/flowers from around the world on the way to the waterfall. Once there, you’re able to swim and reach the waterfall to take a few pictures. The kayaking is calm, and overall it does take about 10 hours of the day. Definitely worth the trip.

Fun way to explore north shore and the way there

Was a great tour. First we stopped in the macadamia nuts farm and a fruit stand that both were great stops. Afterwards Uncle K let’s us have a quick shot on one of the beautiful beach parks. Next moved to the activities. I did the waterfall and kayak. Waterfall was nice, not much of a hike, more of a short trail in a park. Lastly we did a short stop in haliewa town- few shops and restaurants. Overall good experience! Uncle K was fun and made the tour interactive.

I regret doing this on my last day. Awesome tour and activities around 2/3 of the Island in one day! They want me to say more for this review, I would just recommend avoid Mexican food and bring an aquatic devices for documentation.
