Customer Reviews

Jim and Barbara, Philadelphia, PAWe took the kids to Oahu looking for a good time and a little relaxation after a hectic year for both Jim and I and the kids at school. We found Best Tours through a Google search and booked this guided kayak tour since we were all beginners. We had a great time. The kids were big enough for their own kayak and even though I was a little nervous they were able to paddle to the island just fine. We saw many wild animals and even got some good underwater photos using a camera we bought there. Hawaii is so beautiful, I wish we could have stayed longer

Jim and Heather, Tucson, AZ

Amanda, Knoxville, TNBooked a tour through Best Tours and wasn't disappointed. They emailed me my voucher and confirmation quickly. It worked. Tour was really nice. Were a lot of nice people there. Saw turtles, birds, crabs and many star fish. Snorkeling was fun. Had a mai tai at Bob's Pizza. Thanks Best Tours Will book again

Steve, Seattle, WA

Michael, Phoenix, AZI was recently divorced and looking for distractions while on vacation in Hawaii. A Google search took me to Best Tours I was in Honolulu but found the Kayak tours in Oahu. I decided what the heck and booked the beginner tour. When I got there I met a beautiful girl named Mallory who was also getting out of a relationship and staying in Hawaii for distraction. We ended up spending the whole tour together and are now engaged after 3 years together! Some things are meant to be, I guess.

Chris, Manchester, England

Susan, Miami, FLMy son and I were in Hawaii while his mother was deployed. We wanted something we could do together and the beginner Kayak tour sounded perfect. We really appreciated Best Tours's excellent service, they were very good about calling us back and making sure we booked a tour we liked. Kainoa helped us out. Thanks man
