We just finished a half day tour with Michael where we went to the Green World Coffee Farm, Waimea Falls, north shore macadamia nut company, food trucks in Haleiwa, and Dole planation. He also brought us Malasadas from Leonard’s bakery to eat with our coffee. Our party was 2 adults and two 3 year olds.

Ive been on tours across the US, in the Caribbean, all over the UK and Europe and this was by far the best one I’ve attended. Michael tells you stories about Hawaii that are interested and only a local could know, he was extremely friendly with us, the people around us on the tour that we experienced and he honestly made my daughters day how he treated her. She was sad when we had to leave Micheals bus at the end of the tour. He treated us like we were old friends and really made everything exactly how we wanted it. I am so happy we went with his company.

If I could give a thousand stars I would and I truly believe that a tour with Michael should be suggested to any family traveling to Aulani or or Hawaii, 🤙

What a big day we had, we finally took the tour which we had booked in 2019 before the world came crashing down.
I am so grateful that l booked this tour with Halia Tours and Transportation . Michael took care of us from the minute he picked us up, this man is a gentleman and was so attentive and accommodating to all our needs. Not once did we feel rushed, Michael’s knowledge was impressive and he kept us engaged and entertained for the whole 12 hrs. We felt like Michael was a friend to us, someone we’ve known for years, so much infact that we were left emotional saying goodbye and ending our 12 hr day together.
This man took care of us, not because it’s his job but because he genuinely is a gentleman and he did so without expecting anything in return.
All we can say is Wow!!! What a day, we travelled the entire island and saw sights that one would think did not exist, the scenery was breaking.
If any of you are ever fortunate to visit Oahu please put Halia tours and transport on your must list

Mahalo Michael 🙏

We spent two days with Michael and he was a wealth of information and suggestions. We had to reschedule from 2020 and Michael worked with us to make sure we were kept up to date on the continual changes in travel to Oahu. We were aged 11 to 61 and he was able to keep everybody informed and entertained. Changes unfortunately kept us from hanging out at the beach with Michael. He made sure we made the best of our time and didn’t miss a thing.

Michael was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating when planning our trip to Oahu, Hawaii. He made suggestions to help us maximize our time. We spent 2 days with him and Halia Tours and Transportation. Michael knows a lot about the Hawaiian culture and you can tell he enjoys his job when meeting him for the first time. He also went above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend him and Halia Tours and Transportation to anyone visiting the island of Oahu looking for a great private tour guide who is flexible and accommodating. Michael's wealth of information and suggestions made our private tour memorable! We will definitely use Michael and Halia Tours and Transportation when visiting Oahu in the future.

We booked this trip during Covid, to get the best tour possible for our vacation during one of the worst times to vacation. Michael went above and beyond showing us around, telling Island history and his story, funny stories, bad Dad jokes and local places we wouldn't have found if we were able to get our own vehicle. He takes pride in the community, his business, his home and shares as much or as little as you want him to. We decided if we had to leave Oahu after that time with Michael, it would've fullfilled our vacation requirements and we would've left happy. From coffee to cacao, eels to turtles, mountains to waterfalls, food trucks to restaurants, he showed us all of this and so much more. Mahalo Michael!

We flew over from Maui for one day to visit Oahu and this tour was fantastic. It was just earlier this week (October 2022) and found the day to be a memory of a lifetime. Our tour guide, Michael, was super knowledgeable about everything going on in Oahu and the conversation really helped make the day. We were originally going to spend more time at Pearl Harbor but due to some dock issues they are experiencing and long delays, we ended cutting that portion short. So, we ended up driving towards the North Shore and made a few stops but the highlight was when we decided to all go paddle boarding together where the water was calm, warm and full of sea turtles. Nobody in our family had ever done it before, but Michael helped us along the way and we had an awesome time. We followed this up with lunch at Roy's at Turtle Bay. We finished our drive down the east side of Oahu and again got to hear all about it from our guide. Really couldn't rate this day high enough!

This was the highlight of my two week honeymoon!!!!!! My husband and I did various tours in Maui and Honolulu and this was by far the best day I had! Michael is AWESOME! He is laid back, full of knowledge about the Island, funny, helpful, great driver (always felt safe) and just an overall great guy. He also knows a lot of people and went the extra mile to find out some information for us for another excursion we had booked. I can’t stress enough how much better it is to have a private tour guide; it was worth every penny. Michael always got back to us with any questions prior to the trip and picked us up promptly the day of. We had some things we wanted to do, but we also let him pick some places (including local spots which is always the best) and we truly had a blast. We saw so many beautiful sights and ate great food! Even with some Covid restrictions, we did not feel slighted in any way because Michael made sure we did everything we wanted to and had the best time. We finished the night off getting some malasadas and he even had a bag warmer to keep them warm for us (he pulled out the cooler too for all the food we brought back). AWESOME time! If you are between a private tour or group tour please do this! It is worth the experience-you spend as much or as little time in the various spots you go! Thank you so much for the tour!!!!

It was a great day, and very enjoyable having Michael give us so much information about Hawaiian culture. He was very accomodating to our needs, our mom with a walker joined us, and Michael was very patient in helping her throughout the day. You can tell he truly enjoys his work, and many people around the island greeted him very fondly. I highly recommend him for any type of group tour.

If you do anything in Oahu, book a tour with Michael! I promise you, you will not be disappointed! Michael has extensive knowledge of the island. His tour was hands down the best part of our vacation. He customized a private tour for our family that was absolutely remarkable! Thank you, Michael, you left us with unforgettable memories that we will treasure for our lifetimes!
