Tour: #645271, Passport to Pearl Harbor with O'ahu's Top Rated Private Tour Guide, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States    view tour
Date: Jun 15/19

What a great trip with Kirk! Highly recommended. We loved the personal service and his knowledge of the islands, their history, flora and fauna. If you only have a short time and want to really get to know the island, he's your man. This tour covers all the major Pearl Harbor sites, and we had extra time for a quick tour of the city and sushi for lunch. No waiting for tickets; he takes care of that, and bags can be stored in his vehicle, so logistics are a breeze. Five stars!

Kirk is very friendly, patient and very well organised. He is also very prompt to respond and gave us a number helpful suggestions so we could plan our visit to HNL. His knowledge of the history and traditions of Ohau is very sound I would strongly recommend his services to anyone interested in doing a tour at your own pace and in the comfort of his beautiful SUV.

Kirk is an amazing tour guide. This was by far the best thing we did on Oahu. He showed us so much that otherwise we wouldn't have seen or known about on the island. He was super informative about Pearl Harbor along with everything else on the tour. We were most impressed with how he interacted with our 10 year old son. He told legends and tidbits that kept the whole family interested and engaged. I would absolutely recommend choosing Kirk to show any visitor around Oahu. You won't be disappointed!

This tour was absolutely wonderful! Kirk picked us up at our hotel, and had space for all of our luggage in his very comfortable SUV. He took us to Manoa Falls, giving us really interesting information along the way. He is a wonderful guide. He also took us to a great local lunch spot. And then he drove us to some absolutely gorgeous beaches, and some lookouts with breathtaking views! He dropped us off at the port for our cruise. We highly recommend this tour with Kirk. It was a perfect day!

If you are short on time and money like most of us are, Kirk is the guide for you. I gave him four must have stops and a very short window of time in which to accomplish them. Not only was he able to accomplish my "must do's" he was able to show me and my wife some of the most gorgeous spots on Oahu as well. His knowledge of the local area and sights are awesome. Save yourself some money and get a personal high quality tour with Kirk.

Kirk is an incredible tour guide. First, his knowledge of Hawaii is world class. There was not a question I could throw at him that didn't have an intelligent answer. He is truly a history savant. Second, he's a very generous and considerate guide. We did a Pearl Harbor tour, followed by a tour of Honolulu. We went way over in terms of time, and he didn't blink, showing enthusiasm and even suggesting new things to see (and malasadas at Leonard's!).

Kirk was a wealth of knowledge. We (three of us) were on the island only for a day before a cruise and Kirk hit all the highlights. Kirk had a comfortable, clean car and we drove almost around the whole island. He listened to what we wanted and delivered. He stored our luggage in his car and then dropped us off at the end of the day at our cruise boat. We had a blast. I would highly recommend Kirk for your tour.

Kirk deserves a 10 star out of 5 rating but the site does not support it. We Booked an 8 hour tour and asked to modify the itinerary to include the Arizona When we landed, we indicated things we wanted to do and things like shopping that we had no interest in and Kirk was off and driving. Everything was top shelf including the local restraunt at the docks he recommended for lunch. He kept us entertained with his knowledge and his personality had us completely at ease.

Kirk knew a whole bunch about the area. We went to Pearl Harbor and the Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Garden and various lookouts along the way. I had specifically asked to see a garden and the Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Garden is a beautiful, well maintained area with a lot of tropical plants. The plants were well labeled. As I am using a cane Kirk was a complete gentleman and minimized walking for me by dropping off and returning with the car. Overall I would highly recommend Kirk

Can't say enough about how great Kirk was. He was exceptionally attentive and genuinely cared about us. Kirk had gone to considerable trouble to rent kayaks and took us to a secluded bay where we could experience ocean kayaking as well as paddle a river and see a natural "fish pond." We were able to see and do so much that we know we will never forget our day on Oahu. Thanks, Kirk.

Kirk is an outstanding representative of this company. He spent the day with us, allowing us to see what we wanted to see, and provided suggestions for things not to miss. We were exhausted by the end of our day, especially since the rain kept us from enjoying Waikiki beach at the end of the tour. We ate dinner and he picked us up & brought us back to our ship.

We are Italians and thought that we would have difficulty understanding ... he was very clear while speaking and we understood everything without any problems! He is very nice and always smiling. Thanks Kirk

great impression of Oahu in the time that we had to see the Island, fantastic stop at some authentic food trucks where we ate delicious food that originated from the fieldworkers of a variety of countries. Kirk told us a lot of interesting fact and showed us sights like Jurassic Park film location, ancient Temple ruins dating back to captain cooks time, cool surf beaches, impressive rock formations along the coast, macadamias etc... He also played some cool Hawaiian music as we drove along the shore...

From the moment I read Kirk's profile, I knew he was the guide for our family. He communicated with us immediately and kept in touch before, during and after the trip. Kirk is very knowledgeable about Hawaii and interesting to visit with throughout the trip to the North Shore. I was impressed with Jeff also, a friend who helped drive. Riding in two suvs was much more comfortable than a larger vehicle. Kirk was also gracious enough to answer questions concerning other activities. One of our favorite days❤

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!

A perfect tour, with a perfect guide. Kirk asked for our interests and built the tour around them. Certainly a knowledgeable guy, but also a great story teller; he made the whole day a fun experience. One of the many highlights was being introduced to a rare Hawaiian Monk Seal. A great day visiting beautiful beaches and lookout points along the East and North coasts of Oahu. We highly recommend this guide to anybody wanting to explore the nature and history of the island.

Kirk was waiting for us as we cleared Customs at 9.30 am 13 June 18 and loaded our luggage in to his vehicle before taking us on the tour and returning us to the Airport at 7.30 pm. Kirk was very flexible in working in with our interests. We had a great day seeing beautiful scenery, turtles, a monk seal, and mongooses and tried shaved ice banana fritters and a shrimp plate for lunch at Giovannis. We found the tour to be perfect for passing the time to our next flight from Honolulu.

KIrk has an exceptional knowledge of local history which he delivers with passion and sincerity. We spent a few hours at the Pearl Harbor Historic Site independently, after which Kirk picked us up and showed us some highlights of the area, including the State Capital and Pali Nu'uanu Lookout. He also gave us some local tips on things to do while in Hawaii. Kirk is very professional and was flexible to our needs and interests. This tour is highly recommended.

My husband and I booked Kirk's tour of the Arizona Memorial and North Shore sights. We had a wonderful time! He guided us through the process of touring the memorial and was waiting for us when we were finished. He showed us some great local beaches and lookouts, and took us to some really special local eateries. He even gave us some recommendations for things we could do on our own time the next day. I highly recommend Kirk if you are interested in an informative, friendly, and fun tour of Oahu.

Kirk, thanks for the wonderful day on the North Shore and the extra stop at Costco. : ) Kirk is a real friendly guy, professional, and is a good judge of what people will like to do. He took us to some amazing beach areas. We don't usually stop to try food while traveling on tours, but his suggestions were spot on and we enjoyed them thoroughly. I would not hesitate to hire him again. His tour and the photos I took with him were so much better than when we went on a photography tour the next day.

In addition, he gaves us tips of places to visit during the rest of our stay. It was relaxed and felt more like we were hanging out with a friend than a formal tour- highly recommended!

I had a great trip with Kirk to the North Shore of Oahu. Communication before the visit was perfect. He was right on time and well-prepared with water and even some reef shoes I could borrow to go wading a bit at one of the beaches. He knows the area well, has a good grasp of island history, and was able to share helpful stories of what we were passing along the way. His recommendations of where to stop for snacks and lunch were dead-on (although I have to say the shave ice in Kauai was better!!).

When I hired Kirk, I really just needed a driver to take me to Doris Duke's home, Shangri-La, and then to the airport. But I got an experienced guide with a pleasant manner and a deep knowledge of Hawaiian history. Before the house tour Kirk drove me around the site; after the tour,we had time to visit the cemetery of Hawaiian royalty and drive into the hills for a breathtaking view of the northern side of Oahu. He is a tour guide who shares as much as you want to hear. He wants you to love Hawaii.
