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… :)

Kirk was friendly, knowledgeable, flexible, and everything we wanted for our 6 hour tour in Honolulu...Mahalo, Kirk!
Kirk is incredibly knowledgable. His enthusiasm is catching! He delivered a great presentation, full of the history of Hawaii. I highly recommend him for anyone who wishes a 5-star personalised tour of Honolulu. The tour consisted of walking and riding (car) and was exactly what we had been looking for. We stopped for lunch at a lovely informal restaurant. All in all, TERRIFIC!

For 2 war babies who try to visit world war sights wherever we travel Pearl Harbor was a dream come true in addition to the memorial sight we visited the war museum and lots of Honolulu Thank you Kirk for a wonderful day
David BrownUnited States
What an amazing tour led by Kirk! He knows so much of the history of the islands and his easygoing manner kept all of us on the edge of our seats waiting for the next stop on the tour. I never would have seen half the sites or known a tenth of the facts without Kirk. Would sign up again for his tours without any hesitation in a moment.

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.

A must for anyone who visits Hawaii and is at all interested in military history. Very moving. Kirk was an excellent guide who went the extra mile for us, even taking us to Walmart on the way home because we needed a new suitcase. (Too much shopping!!) Thank-you very much Kirk.

Kirk was great! He led us on a tour that focused on Pearl Harbor, Downtown Honolulu and small local places. It was very informative. We were impressed by how he could answer any question we would throw his way. My teenage boys barely looked at their phones that day. Thank you Kirk, we had a great time.

We had an absolutely amazing day! Kirk was extremely knowledgeable and went over and beyond to make our tour memorable. The day was so relaxing and just flew by. If you visit Oahu we highly recommend that you book a tour with Kirk.
Kirk was an exceptional tour guide and showed and explained to us many of the highlights of the Honolulu area in the time that was allotted. He was very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend him. We have recommended him to our travel agent.
Kirk was gentle and clever. He speaks spanish very well. Es muy agradable. Conoce la historia y sabe transmitir muy bien sus conocimientos sobre la cultura hawaiana.
Christine BarnesNew Zealand
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.
Susan HamarUnited States
Kirk was a fabulous guide. My wife, 12 year old son and I learned much about Hawaii and enjoyed a great experience at Pearl Harbor. Everything worked great from the logistics perspective and Kirk even led us right back to the car return area at the airport making the day as enjoyable and stress free as possible.
Christopher KearneyUnited States

Kirk was knowledgable , kind and very accommodating. We were wanting a Pearl Harbor tour with a little something different for teenagers and he was true to the calling. The kids especially loved the windy look out that finished the trip. Thanks Kirk for a wonderful day of adventure on Oahu!
Mark MartinUnited States
On time, attention to detail, informative and charismatic. Took time to explain details to me, and then extra time to explain them to my 12-year old. I definitely recommend him.
Rheba ArdoinUnited States
Kirk was our personal tour guide in Honolulu. Awesome experience!! He's a self proclaimed history buff and taught us a lot about Hawaiian history as he drove us to great historic and beautiful spots on the island. We ended at Pearl Harbor then lunch by the water before he dropped us at the airport for our flight out. Look him up, Awesome guy
Tawana WestUnited States
Kirk was a great guide. He was knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. He went above and beyond to give us a good experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a unique personalized tour.
Evelyn BrennanUnited States
We could not have been happier with Mr. Kirk H.He gave a fantastic tour that all enjoyed (Mom, Dad, Truman 13, and Fenley&Ryker both 11). He was flexible enough to contend with one of us arriving a day late, picking that one up at the airport.The whole family loved him, enjoyed the places he took them, and were very comfortable in his vehicle.If we had booked a bus tour, we never could have dealt with the unexpected late arrival of one of us.A personal tour is always better-only shop if you want to!
Aimee NoceroUnited States
Kirk was amazing and very knowledgeable of so many things. He even manages to engage our eight year olds. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who comes to Honolulu, Hawaii. Kirk is the main reason for that.
Beverlee TigerUnited States
We found Kirk to be extremely friendly and outgoing. He is very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our time with him. It was a great day and we absolutely recommend him!
Nacy KennedyUnited States
Perfect day with Kirk today. So flexible, knowledgeable and enjoyable. He treated us wonderfully and we got a great exposure to Pearl Harbor and an overview of the island, highlights and history. Kirk went out of his way to pick us up and deliver us back to our condo on the north shore. Can't recommend highly enough. Nancy and Joe
Carol HeimUnited States
Kirk was an informative and personable guide who provided so much history about Pearl Harbor and the city itself. The ability to customize our experience in a private tour made a huge difference and we didn't have to worry about the logistics of getting where we wanted to go. We enjoyed our lunch setting and all the information he gave on food options. The car was spotless! From our first stop at Leonard's Bakery to our drop off at the end of the day, this was a top notch experience!
Bobbie DunnUnited States
We were very pleased by the service provided by Kirk. He met us as we arrived at the terminal, and then escorted us to his car, and took us to the Arizona memorial directly from there. As we were going there he pointed out various points of interest, and explained some of the culture of the area. On arrival at the memorial site he obtained our tickets, and directed us to the museum and then to the boat out to the memorial. We had an enjoyable day with him, and would be glad to give him five star rating.
