Great trip
Nov 2021
Kurt was a great tour guide! We got to hop onto an air conditioned NICE bus, which was super clean and comfortable. We ran into some traffic but that didn't derail our schedule. We were able to make all the stops anyhow. The stops at the nature trail and for paddle boarding were pretty awesome, I would've liked longer (that's just my preference though). A nice thing about this type of tour is that the guide calls in lunch orders, paddle board orders etc. while you're on the way. We got some invaluable tips too... like how to avoid the scams and worthless parts of some of the stops and how to see the good stuff/jump the lines. Kurt was great about setting our expectations, keeping to schedule, and making us feel safe and cared-for. He was exactly on time for pick-up, friendly, and cracked us up. I definitely do recommend.

It was a good stop after a good stop you don’t sit in the van for hours. The max he drove was 45 minutes.
Nov 2021 • Family
My favorite thing was when we went paddle boarding and kayaking. One of the biggest mistakes I made was not bringing a towel. All good though! Over all Kurt was the best guide.

Tour guide Kurt was excellent and made the tour much better than what it would be if you just drove around and pointed out things. He’s funny and very enthusiastic about his work.

North Shore Tour w/ Kurt
Nov 2021 • Couples
My family and I went on this tour with Kurt as our guide. He is clearly knowledgeable about the island and gave us a great tour. He was very personable and made it an effort to make sure that all of us on the tour felt like “ohana”/family at the end of the day. I’m glad that I was on his bus and no other bus!
