Kirk arrived on time and his vehicle was clean and comfortable. Kirk was friendly, knowledgeable about Hawaii history, flexible with our itinerary and fun to spend the day with. Even tho' we have visit O'ahu several times, Kirk enlightened us with new sights (things we had previously just driven by) and added many interesting stories and facts. Our 13 year old granddaughter enjoyed the tour as much we did. Oh and we all loved the background music!! We had a wonderful day with Kirk! Thank you, Mahalo!
