What to expect
To make the most of the morning light, your North Shore photo tour begins with early morning pickup at your hotel. Climb into your tour vehicle with your photo guide and group of fellow photography aficionados and take off for the North Shore.  Get your day started with a visit to Green wWorld Coffee Farm. Producing 100% Hawaiian coffee, this small farm is known for its excellent products. You'll have the opportunity to try some (own expense), before heading for Waimea waterfall and botanical garden. Photograph the sights in the forest while enjoying the valley's cool breeze and peaceful vibes. Depending on the time of year, you will also explore various locations featuring green sea turtles, pristine beaches, pounding surf breaks, and azure waves.   Midday, stop in the historic Hale'iwa town to taste some grub at the local food trucks. Stroll through the town to peruse the art galleries and surf shops that some say reflect what Hawaii was like decades ago.  Return to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off at the end of the day.

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

Scenic stops, sea turtles and yummy lunch
Dec 2019
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!

Great overview of scenic Oahu North Shore
Dec 2019 • Family
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.

Wow do this first while on vacation!
Dec 2019 • Couples
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!

Great tour to explore the north shore
Nov 2019 • Friends
This tour brought many pleasant surprises for me and my friend. Our guide is very knowledgeable on photography and on how to capture the beauty of the scenery and wildlife in north shore. I'm a true beginner on photography, so it's like seeing everything with a new set of eyes. Truely a very special experience. The lunch place our guide recommended was awesome by the way. :) Next time I visit Oahu, I'd definitely go with your tours again. Many thanks.

Our North shore adventure was one of the best tours we have ever been on . DJ our guide taught us a lot about photographing nature and the history of the North shore. His enthusiasm and love for what he does really comes through and made for a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Future Returning Customer
Apr 2019 • Couples
Alex was an awesome tour guide! As the owner of Oahu Photography Tours, he really knows his stuff and takes great care in creating a memorable experience for his customers.

This tour starts out around 6:30am and lasts until around 3pm. The early start is 1000% worth it as you beat the crowds at many of the stops on the tour (making it far less likely that you will have random families in the background of your photos). All of the places we stopped had breathtaking views, and the amount of time spent at each was damn near perfect.

In addition to timing the tour perfectly, Alex also gave me useful tips on how to take the best pictures with my camera. The guy knows his stuff!

Next time I am back on Oahu, I will definitely try out another tour with this company.

Mahalo for the awesome time!
