We'd been on Oahu 10 days before taking this tour. During this one day tour on The Surf Bus, with Sam as our guide, we learned and experienced SO much more than we have on our own! We bicycled a path along the famous North Shore, saw part of a surfing competition at Banzai Pipeline, ate lunch at the food... More

We had a great time on the Surf Bus with Sam. It's the best of both worlds with a tour to get you there and get some background on the area but then with the activities you can discover the area for yourself as well. We loved riding around and checking out the beaches and the stand up paddle boarding... More

Great day - excellent guide Sam. Knowledgeable and helpful. Nice to have a tour which involved some activities not just sitting in a bus

I had Sam as my tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and also just a really nice person. The activities on offer were great and there was something for everybody. Would recommend to anyone who wants to experience the North Shore first hand and not from a bus window.

A great day if you want to see a little bit of the Island. Snorkelling was fantastic! We walked up to the waterfall very pretty gardens to walk through - to swim in the waterfall you would need to be able to walk down and over some rocks - not steep but need to be a little sure on your... More

We loved The Surf Bus! We took a tour with Sam and he was nice and very informative. He was very personable and treated everyone with kindness and respect. He gave us commentary on the way to our destination and back. He gave us insider tips about destinations on the tour, and also places in Waikiki. He also introduced us... More

Second trip to Hawaii and second time on the Surf Bus. You have a choice of two activities and you can pay for an extra activity. The main thing I like about this tour is it is relaxed and you get the opportunity for free time to cruise around and take in the North Shore. Our driver this time was... More

Picked up on time - mainly our driver, Mike, was fantastic. Used the travel time to tell us interesting and fascinating stories about the island and tips about what to eat, etc that were from a local perspective. We did the kayaks in am, and then 1/2 our group did the bikes and 1/2 did the waterfall. Both were pleased.... More

Monte was great and the whole trip was well worth the cost. We enjoyed all parts of it and got to see lots of the North Shore area. Monte does a great job of giving us a history lesson, which was very interesting. All the sights were so beautiful. Thank you Surf Bus!
