Amazing Views, Good Price

This trip was great and definitely worth the price. There are a few things you don’t stop at anymore in the Viator “what to expect” list due to covid, new laws, or new regulations but trust me you won’t be disappointed by everything you get to do on this trip. The guide is super accommodating to making sure you do the activities you want to do. Also super informative! You learn SO much about Hawaiian history, it’s really special.

That’s great to hear about the price being worth it ! And that you enjoyed the the surf bus’ guide . We always take pride into having guides who know about the island and Hawaiian history so you are immersed in activities but also culture and are able to understand Hawaii and Hawaiians! A hui ho and mahalo!

Great North Shore Tour!

My mom and I booked this tour for a Sunday in Oahu and we had a lot fun! Sam was our tour guide and he was very fun and knew so much about Hawaii. We stopped at the macadamia farm for a short time, then headed to the North Shore. We had the options of bicycling, snorkeling shark’s cove, or going to the falls for our morning activity. We chose snorkeling and didn’t regret it. The fish were beautiful and we even saw sea turtles! They provide all the gear you need and they have $5 lockers if you choose to not leave your stuff on the bus. We then went to the town of Haleiwa where we could choose to kayak, SUP, or walk the town. We kayaked and walked the town and enjoyed our time there. Last stop was the beach to see the turtles. There weren’t any that day, but we had seen some earlier so weren’t disappointed. Overall, would definitely recommend this trip since you get to do activities and you don’t sit on a bus the entire tour.

Best part of our vacation!!!!

Uncle Kevin was awesome! He has a wealth of island knowledge and encouraged questions. I had 3 kids ranging 7-13 who asked numerous questions. He answered all of them with a smile. He made sure we got the most out of our experience. I highly recommend going with his suggestions. They did not disappoint. The waterfall was awesome and the hike was beautiful and not too strenuous. If you kayak be sure an adult is with each child. The turtle beach was amazing and we were able to see multiple turtles swimming right in front of us. My 11 year said it was awesome and all 3 kids keep saying they miss Uncle Kevin. Great experience!!!

This trip was absolutely amazing!! Our tour guide, Greg or Cousin G, was OUTSTANDING. He really went above and beyond to make this experience one of a kind. From his knowledge of the island, to his humor and dad jokes, the tour never had a dull moment. Even his playlist on the bus was on point! We went paddle boarding, swam at a beautiful waterfall, and took a 30 foot jump off a rock!! Highly recommend doing this tour. North shore is so beautiful is trip my wife and I will never forget. Thank you Cousin G!

This was a great tour of the North Shore! Sam was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. We were offered two activities. We chose to explore Waimea Valley and swim at the waterfall, and a kayaking excursion at Haleiwa. The cost was worth it. Aloha and enjoy this tour!

What a great trip. Our ride to North Shore was a blast - Uncle Kevin is very entertaining and knowledgeable. We had great laughs with his history and humor combo. The activities were awesome and we took full advantage. The sites for snorkeling and kayaking etc were prepped for our arrival. Appreciated the extra planning so we avoided lines and had some extra help etc. Great fun!

Waimea valley actuality has the biggest collection of Polynesian plants anywhere so it’s a true wonder and the Surf Bus gives you ample time to explore it! Happy to hear that you enjoyed it and your guide !
