Kirk was a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to spend the day with. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the time and education about the island that he was able to share. Saw beautiful places, ate great food and would recommend to anyone that has a day go spend in O'ahu.

Kirk is a great guide, answering every question about landscape, flora, fauna, surfing, food and music. We had a great day with him and got to see some hidden spots we wouldn't have seen otherwise. I would highly recommend Kirk for a North Shore tour!

We were met at the Pride of America cruise terminal in Honolulu by Kirk at 9am just as he said in his email a few days prior. He gave us an awesome tour of the city and extras we had not even thought of. His car was very nice and the pace was perfect. He was so nice and informative- really knows the history. Even played great Hawaiian music throughout. We would highly recommend Tours By Locals and especially KIRK. He was the best ever!!

Out tour guide Kirk was fantastic! There were 5 of us including a 2 year old and Kirk took her into consideration throughout our entire tour. Kirk met us at the airport, putting our luggage in the vehicle he whisked us into a submersion of Honolulu. We got a terrific overview of city history, went to the Punchbowl Memorial and Pearl Harbor ending with several beautiful beaches. Kirk knew the best spot for lunch and at days end we had shave ice! Let someone else do the driving. I highly recommend this.

This was a fabulous tour and Kirk was the reason why. Yes, the day was beautiful and the views were outstanding but Kirk made our tour special by his knowledge and his willingness to accommodate the interests of our group of four friends. He went above and beyond the call of duty. If I could give give him more stars, I would! My advice is to book any tour you can with him!

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. If you only have one day on the island, this tour is a must. He does have shorter tours available.

He packed our time with all the sights we had requested plus a whole lot more we had not expected and it made our tour a thoroughly enjoyable day. Our tour was full of value and I feel that we didn't miss a thing. Thanks for the care you took looking after us and the attention to detail.

Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Kirk and this tour. From the moment we booked our tour, Kirk was professional, responsive, patient with all my questions, and generous with the amount of time he spent communicating what to expect on his tour. And that was all before even landing on Oahu. The tour itself was well-organized, informative, and fun! Kirk has an obvious passion for Hawaii and all the history of the islands. And don't get me started on the amazing play list in his car… :)

We booked with Kirk because he had such phenomenal past positive reviews and we wanted to get the most of our one day ashore on Oahu before travelling back to the mainland. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the island, its culture and history and took us to interesting places that were beyond the list of areas we chose to visit. We happily experienced local culinary surprises recommended by him: Giovani's Shrimp truck, a local shave ice location and, of course Leonard's for Malasadas! Perfect day!

The best Tour we ever had! Kirk was well prepared and very kind throughout the whole day. The destinations he choose were fantastic. None of the destinations were crowded or too busy but all of them were stunning. Lots of options for additional stops and good recommendations for lunch as well as the obligatory Shave Ice. Even the music playlist was well prepared and fitting for basically every single stop or segment of driving throughout the day.

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❤

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, 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.

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.

We HIGHLY Recommend Kirk. He was extremely responsive to our desires and needs. He customized the tour for us. Unfortunately one person in our party had broken their ankle 2 weeks prior to our vacation, but Kirk handled the additional responsibility and equipment like a pro. He is informed, fun and pleasant. He answered every question regarding the island and made it so fun! Thank you Kirk!

We saw almost the whole island in a day, able to taste the Hawaiian fare, and what makes this island unique. I highly recommend his services to anyone coming to Oahu!

Excellent tour. Kirk was a fantastic guide and nothing was too much trouble. He is extremely knowledgeable about history and the local area. He found great places to eat such as Giovannis shrimp truck and Leonards bakery. The shrimp and malasadas puffs were fantastic. Kirk gave options of the routes we could take which allowed us to decide on what would keep our daughter interested. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants not be herded like on a big bus and wants to look at the island. Thanks

Day 2 with Kirk: JAM-PACKED AND FUN-FILLED. Today we "explored" the North Shore and I actually think we "circumnavigated" the entire island. After a drive through Waikiki, we headed north exploring beautiful beachside vistas & "secret spots" while learning more about the paradise of Hawaii. A visit to the Buddhist temple, beachfront lunch, a stop by Surf N Sea Surf Shop ..... from roadside chickens wandering about to crashing waves and surfers hunting the perfect wave, we saw it all. A Perfect Day!!

Day 1 with Kirk: INCREDIBLY FABULOUS. After driving through Honolulu and stopping at the "sites that you must see," we headed to the USS Arizona for our tour. After lunch, we "toured" what seemed to be the entire South Shore, showing us the beauty of Hawaii. Kirk is ultra-professional, super friendly, uniquely engaging and his knowledge of Hawaiian history and "fun facts" is endless. The best part is..... it is very obvious that he loves his job and that just made the day even more enjoyable!!

We were a party of three and decided the day before our tour that we would like to change some of the places we were to visit. Kirk was very flexible to us scheduling a change and great at communication both before and during the tour. All three of us had a great time and agreed this was a good way to see the Island of Ohau. The car was comfortable with air conditioning and Kirk had bottles of cold water available to us. We would definately use this service again for other holidays.
