Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the red "Book It" button and make a request. You will receive a confirmation usually within hours. If it is not available you will not be charged and we'll help you find an alternative date or similar tour.
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

My visit to Oahu was a week long, and the tour with Shane was definitely a highlight of the trip. Among the many activities of the day: snorkeling at Electric Beach, swimming at the Kalihi Ice Ponds, a Botanical Garden, and the Pali Lookout. By chance, we had perfect weather for the whole day as well. It was great to get away from the touristy areas of Waikiki where I was staying. Many of the places ... morewe went had few to no people, making it easier to enjoy the sights and sounds. 

Shane is great company, whether it is providing additional information about what is around you or just general conversation. He knows what he is doing and put together a great tour. Any future visit to Oahu will certainly include another tour, as there is still plenty for me to experience. Shane, thank you for a great trip.

Wow! A friend highly recommend Shane and his company to tour the island. What a great day of hiking, swimming in the waterfalls, sightseeing, snorkeling, seeing the sea turtles and standup board paddling. Shane was so knowledgable about the Hawaiian history and geography. We took our 7 and 9 year old girls and he was so patient with them. It felt like we were hanging out with a good family friend. ... more

Thank you Shane for a fun experience! Our family will have these fun memories to look back on when we think of our trip to Hawaii!

My best friend and I were on a trip to Hawaii and had found Shane online. We booked him for a full day tour and he had asked us whether we wanted one big hike or multiple smaller hikes. We weren't hikers and didn't really know what we were getting into but we decided to go for the big hike, which turned out to be 8 hours and 9 miles long. It was mentally and physically the hardest thing we'd both ... moreever done, but also the most rewarding. The views were breathtaking and there are no words to describe the feeling of looking down from the top of a crater and realizing how far you'd come on your own two legs. Shane was helpful, friendly, motivating and also the best photographer! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to hike while on Oahu. Mahalo Shane for one incredible experience.

I had a awesome day with Shane. I was able to see more of the island and experience things on a private tour I never would have been able to do in a large tour group. It was like spending a day with an old friend. My day had a little more rain than Hawaii normally has and Shane was able to adapt our plan so I could get the most out of my day (which meant staying in the sun). When you think about it, ... moreyou could go with 30 people and do things you might not be interested in or plan our own day with Shane. I would vote Shane every day of the week. If I went back to Hawaii I would definitely book another tour!! I still think about the Acai bowls at Sandy Beach, trying to get the acai from amazon haha.

Just over a year ago, my wife and I visited Oahu and did a day tour with Shane. This year, we brought our daughter on her 21st birthday trip. After our last trip, we didn't think it was possible to have a better time with Shane. We were wrong; somehow, he outdid himself. What an awesome day!... more

The adventure begins long before you meet Shane. He works with you beforehand to find out you likes and dislikes and then prepares a custom tour for you - complete with lunch that you order through him ahead of time.

For our tour, we did a hike to a remote waterfall, lunch on the beach, snorkeling, stand-up paddling and stops at several really cool locations along the way (like the beach where they filmed Hunger Games and another beach where large sea turtles were basking in the sun).

Based on the weather and time of year, Shane has a long list of the best places to go. So the places we went this year were completely different than last year.

The Martin family will never visit Oahu without spending day with Shane. He deserves his 100% perfect rating. I wish I could vote even more than 5 stars!

Shane was great and planned a fully customized trip for us based on what we were interested in. We did a fairly-challenging hike with a beautiful view at the top, saw some cool sights that we hadn't seen yet, and even did a stop at Leonard's Bakery, which we had told him that we were going to do during our week stay in Oahu. We weren't even going to do any hiking tours this time because we were planning ... moreto do some hikes on our own (which we also did), but while searching for other fun activities, I stumbled upon his company and it seemed like the perfect thing to do. I would definitely recommend a day with Shane!

Shane is a great listener we traded emails and phone calls prior to flying to Oahu. I gave him general info on what my son, daughter, wife and I like and he put together a custom tour. Shane picked us up at our hotel and we were gone all day. He took us to places that are off the beaten path as well as those must see attractions. Shane was so knowledgeable about the area that he educated us on the ... morehistory of each site as well as many things we were driving past between stops. My son will never forget SUP with the turtles and one literally popped up 2 ft away when my son was in the water, they just looked at each other (both surprised), it was magical. We watched multiple sea turtles crawl out of the ocean and make there way over a sand bar to the river for the night. We did a circle of the entire island and each of my family members had an amazing time (Snorkling, Hiking, Waterfalls, SUP, Turtles, Sea Cliffs, views of North Shore surfing and more). Shane accommodated our request to start earlier in the morning. He turned this into another adventure as this was before his caterer could provide the box lunches, so we stopped off at "Mikes Huli Chicken", which was on The Food Networks, "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives". It was the best chicken and just another is a multitude of memories that Shane left us with! Mahalo Shane!

Although this is a purchased tour, hanging out with Shane is the closest way to see Oahu without visiting a friend (or of course, living there). Seeing the sights of Oahu in this manner was extraordinary! Top of my wish list was bodysurfing (Shane had beaches in mind, and the perfect one was located), and seeing an Ancient Hawaiian Temple Ruins (an incredible one was selected, which is located next ... moreto a short nature trail overlooking Waimea Bay). 

Although snorkeling was on my list, Shane was mindful of having the best experience possible, and because the waves were unusually large this time of year, and crashing into the tide pool - it was decided not to pursue that venture (too foamy/frothy - visibility not good, and the current would interfere). No matter, we proceeded to a beach where Honus (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) are known to be - saw one, AND again - the bodysurfing - so much fun. I am certain the video/images will be more hilarious than graceful (cannot wait to see them), but that is what memories are made of.

Best adventures ever! I used Shane with Adventure Tours Hawaii for a guide around the island of Oahu and I got to see a lot of the hidden gems that not the typical tourist would have been able to see. He truly knows his island, is very informative of the ancient Hawaiian history, and knows his fauna as well. ... more

One of my favorite adventures was paddle boarding up the Kahana Bay River. We started at the Kahana Bay Beach Park and got some ocean bay paddle boarding in, then went up the river mouth through some unbelievable scenery, got to paddle through some jungle tunnels, and ended it with a picnic at the Huilua Fish Ponds where we got a history lesson on how the ancient Hawaiians captured fish for the village. 

I would absolutely use Adventure Tours Hawaii again. It felt like we had hired a personal local to show us around the island.

Shane was an amazing tour guide and took us places we would have never have thought to experience on our own. We initially were not planning to hire a guide while in Oahu, but a friend recommended his tour to us. We were so glad we took her recommendation! We hiked, swam in a pond under a waterfall, viewed a gorgeous lookout point, spotted sea turtles in the water, even made an unscheduled stop at ... morethe Catching Fire beach when my daughter mentioned she was a Hunger Games fan. Since Shane picked us up at our resort, it was nice to not have to think about how to get to each destination.

It was an amazing, exhausting and exhilarating day. Thanks, Shane!

This tour is really the best thing you can do in Oahu - I can't recommend it enough! We chose the ultimate tour, and it was amazing! We went on a hike, did some paddleboarding, saw sea turtles on the beach, saw some landscapes, went to a super cool beach.. the day was packed! And it never felt long either - we were having such a great time. Shane is awesome, laid back and just having a good time with ... moreus! It felt like we were with a friend. Plus Shane took some pictures throughout the day and sent them to us later - it was awesome to have all those pictures without having to worry about taking them ourselves!

I can't say enough great things about this tour. Worth the money and then some!! Really - if you're in Oahu, this is the one thing you have to do.

The day tour with Shane was the best day of our trip, he knows the BEST places to go for whatever it is you are looking to do..(paddle boarding, surfing, hiking, sight seeing etc) I was super impressed by his extensive knowledge regarding the island's geography, historical & modern ways, as well as local legends. He also took us out for a local lunch and was a super nice guy to boot. When we go back ... morewe will be booking another day with Shane for sure! There is no better value. Equipment is included!

If I could have toured with Shane every day of my stay, I would have! He is an excellent tour guide, knows a lot about the local history and is comfortable with a wide range of activities. He was super easy to get along with and was almost sort of like a coach in a way, encouraging me with snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and on the waterfall hike we did. He is good at feeling out the situation ... moreand pushed me just enough but not too much. He also took some great photos of our tour which were some of my favorite photos of my trip. It was a great day and I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Me and my girlfriend went on a snorkeling tour with Shane and after all the positive reviews I was obviously waiting for a good tour but a bit skeptical since when one observes wild life you can never really be sure how's it gonna go or what you're gonna see. Let me tell you, we saw plenty and shane was so knowledgeable of the area that I hardly had to put my head out of the water. I just followed ... moreShane's fins and enjoyed the beautiful turtles and company. He was always sensible and aware to what was happening with us but without really interfering if it wasn't necessary. I really appreciated that. He really felt how far he could "push us" or not and he catered to that perfectly.
The truth is that half way through the tour I didn't even feel I was having one. It felt I was snorkeling with a buddy that lives in Hawaii and I was just visiting. I think that is the best testament to how good it was.
I have nothing to compare it too, but I can tell you it was one of the highlights of my trip to this amazing pacific islands. Do not hesitate a second, go ahead and book it.

THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST TOURS I HAVE EVER TAKEN!!! Being that this was my first trip to Oahu, I wanted to ensure that I got the best perspective of the Island. After exchanging several e-mails with Shane I can't tell you what a great feeling I had.  I chose the customized adventure tour. (Imagine that! Finally a private tour customized to your likes and abilities!!!) I explained to him that I love ... moreto hike, the more strenuous the better. I also explained that my husband doesn't like to hike but will compromise as long as there is a waterfall or swimming hole involved. I also explained that we really wanted to see things most tourists don't get to see. Shane responded to me that he was going to make this the best day of our trip and to that I told him that I would leave it all in his hands. All I can say was boy did he deliver!
The day before the tour I threw Shane a little curve ball. I texted him to tell him about the hike we had done that day. I was a little worried because the only people we ran into were a couple locals and I thought maybe it might have been one of the hikes he was planning for us. Turns out it was! And despite me only texting him the night before he was totally ready with a plan B.
We saw huge waterfalls and beautiful vistas. We went swimming in a private swimming hole. We saw ancient ruins, got a little history lesson and went snorkeling in one of the coolest snorkel spots I have ever been. We swam with a huge turtle, we explored a cave and we ate an amazing lunch, made from all local ingredients, beside a beautiful stream.
After this inspiring and exhausting day, Shane was also kind enough to offer us advice and suggestions as to what to do for the rest of our trip. He also took pictures during the entire tour, even underwater and then e-mailed them to us when we got home.

If you enjoy adventure and a little physical activity I cannot recommend this tour enough. Absolutely worth every penny and more!!!
