A day with “The Real Hawai’i
One of our best experiences during our vacation in Oahu was the private day tour we booked with “The Real Hawai’i.”
The fee of $149.00 a person for six hours was a great deal, especially considering how most tours lasting more then 3 hours will cost you over $100.00 a person. The difference is that “most” tours are going to pile as many people as possible into a bus and take you on a regimented tour with no thought to the individuals.
With “The Real Hawai’i” plan to spend a day with a private tour guide who assists you in coming up with a custom day of places and experiences with your interest in mind. They do all the driving, worry about the parking and even know the best “local” places to get fresh delicious food.
Oahu is a beautiful Island with many cultural and scenic gems that easily could be missed. The people from “The Real Hawai’i” know the Island and all the fascinating beautiful locations that are not found in tourist pamphlets.
What I loved about our tour is that we wanted to take a path less travelled, so Dan our tour guide took us to check out the beautiful views from Pu’u o Mahuka Heiau State Historic Site.
Hiked through Waimea Park up to the falls.
Watched in amazement as the huge waves crashed onto the shore at Ehukai Beach (AKA The Bonzai Pipeline).
Walked through a magnificent Banyan Tree, that was used in filming Lost and Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle.
And ate delicious farm raised, fresh caught shrimp.
Dan the owner paired us with a terrific tour guide who took pictures for us, gave us some great history of the island, and taught us about local traditions.
Our day with Real Hawai’i was by far the highlight of our vacation!
