We had a fabulous tour with Kurt to the North Shore. The pace was relaxing, he was informative and you can tell he truly loves showing guests his beautiful state. He also timed our stops to avoid the crowds.
We hit all the spots that you hear people talk about and Waimea Valley was spectacular!
We also had a wonderful group that made it that much better.

What a great tour. Alex was great prompt pick up, great stories about the island and took us to some places that the other tours don't. We have some great vantage points looking down on Honolulu, and then some great spots in several locations of the beaches, the rocky cliffs and waves crashing onto them. Then took us to a great little place for lunch. would do this tour again.

Did my third tour with Oahu photography tours, and I can't recommend them enough. Tour guide and driver Alex is very knowledgeable and adds all kinds of Hawaii trivia to the tour. Very relaxing, fun....and turtles.
Forget the rental car, driving in Oahu traffic, and finding parking, and do a tour

Went out tonight on a sunset north shore photo tour and could not have been more thrilled with guide and stops .De Jay was a superb guide funny and full of great information very knowledgeable about photography and I would have never guessed an iPhone can do some much with photos.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a photo tour

De-Jay was our guide and our day started at 6:40 am. He helpfully reminded us about towels, bathing suits & sun protection before we departed. First stop was a Green World Coffee Farm for a breakfast. Next we stopped at 2 breathtakingly beautiful points along the coast on the way to Waimea Botanical Gardens. Tour arrives at the Gardens at 8:45 am, before they open to the public at 9 am, so we had private time at the waterfall to take pictures before the crowds started arriving. The kids enjoyed swimming to the waterfall and there were changing rooms near the falls to get back into dry clothes afterward. Easily could have spent the entire day at the garden. There were several demonstrations of local crafts being set-up as we were leaving which looked very interesting. Next we visited Pu'u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, an Hawaiian Temple on a cliff coupled with a jaw-dropping view of the beaches below. In addition having a wealth of information about Hawaii, De-Jay is also a photography expert and offered lots of helpful tips about smart phone camera picture taking and answered our questions regarding real cameras as well.

De-Jay made special efforts to find a beach with sea turtles as this was important to our group. They were at the second beach we visited; one sunning on the rocks and one swimming in the ocean.

We opted for lunch in Haleiwa Town rather than the food trucks, because there is also shopping in town. Chose Teddy's Bigger Burgers (rated #1 on Oahu for a number of years). Excellent burgers with a variety of toppings & seasonings offered guaranteed to please!
After lunch there was time for shopping and then we dozed on the way back to Honolulu. It was a great day filled with Oahu's amazing beauty for us. Thank you De-Jay!

Everyone including the finicky teens enjoyed our tour led by De-Jay. He offered excellent pointers on how to use our smartphone cameras as well as taking us to some of the best viewpoints on Oahu. We wanted to see sea turtles so he took us to a second beach that often has sunning turtles and we saw them! The Waimea botanical garden was lovely and there were native craft demonstrations ongoing when we visited. Waterfall swim was refreshing; there we changing rooms near the falls. Remember to bring towels to dry off after. Enjoyed lunch at Teddy’s burgers and there are many cuisine choices between food trucks and in town opportunities. There are 16 photos tours offered by Oahu Photography Tours and they also do tours on other islands. Already looking into doing Maui with them . See De-Jay’s sunset photo attached to the review.

You get access to Oahu hot spots and avoid the pain of driving yourself ( Honolulu is crowded ) as these tours welcome all skill levels and everyone has an iPhone. I suggest you book early in your vacation so you have time to follow up on the tips and recommendations the tour guides inform you of on the tour. Jax Wood Fire Pizza was excellent during our North Shore tour and Kurt recommenced many other places all along the way. Great coffee and Chai Tea at Green World Farms coffee plantation to start us off! If you love it as much as I did (John was along and it was his second tour of the week) that gives you time to book another tour before you leave for home. I went alone and waited in the dark for the van however I felt safe as I was able to message and get immediate updates on arrival and where to meet, that was a huge plus. I got great shots, and advice from our whole group. Such a fun day.

Aloha, You left us such an amazing review for us and about your tour with Kurt! I showed this review to Kurt and he laughed and told me how much he loved doing this tour. The North Shore tour can be a lot for new photographers as there is so much to see and do, but we have put together a careful and perfect combo of scenery to keep everyone happy! All of our guides do everything to make sure that each guest is helped to the best of our abilities, so thank you again for taking the time to write this out! Mahalo!
