Following some fastidious research we settled on Custom Island Tours based on Trip Advisor ratings and the agility of the itinerary. We wanted our trip to be perfect and our way.
Clay picked us up on time and spent a little bit of time to better understand our preferences and gave us a range of options. We were keen not to do typical tourist traps and see the best of this beautiful island and some activities.
We saw seals, dolphins and turtles close up, hiking at Hanauma Bay, beautiful secluded beaches, snorkelling at Turtle beach, great sight seeing and swimming at Waimea Valley to name a few. We had shrimp for lunch at Fumi's which was absolutely delicious.
Clay was an absolute champion. He loves life, Hawaii and his job with passion. He was really engaging with all my family and went the extra mile to make sure we all felt special. He provided informative commentary that's was interesting and entertaining and took us to places off the beaten track and only locals would know. We never were rushed and was keen for us to tick off all our "to do" items.
I don't understand why people would pay so much for those large tourist buses when you can have your own private tour customised to meet your own preferences.
I recommend Custom Island Tours and suggest you ask for Clay. You won't be disappointed.
