We got off the Norwegian cruise and had a few hours to kill in Honolulu.

Susie did an excellent job taking us around and giving us the flavor of the place and customizing it to our time and needs.

Really appreciate it

Thank Sahir S

I have been coming to the island for YEARS (since 2000) and have done a lot. But when I met Susie, she showed me lots of local spots that toursists don't know about, and even seasoned visitors like myself!! I was so stoked!! The best was snorkeling with the turtles!! I have swam with them, seen them on the beach, 1 or 2 in the water, but she took us to a place where there were 15!! We had so much fun, we had her take us back there again, and same again, turtles everywhere--baby ones, female, male, older ones--soooo cool! NEVER have seen that! We saw a movie on a private beach under the stars, ate at some more remote food trucks on the east side (most people got to north shore)--I had the BEST garlic shrimp since Macky's closed--that alone made my day! They were the best on the island and I was shocked they had closed; and I had tried the other trucks but was always left wanting. Plus, I found lilikoi cheesecake ice cream--and I'm nuts over anything passionfruit (lilikoi!). She had mango ice cream (local made) with fresh mangos from the tree!! Not canned etc. Was so neat this place-they sell all local toys, books, etc. I found a really cool funny book written by a local on how to talk pidgin :D This store has great little gems!! Susie knew lots of beach volleyball players, so we were able to play some games, and then go swimming right next to the court, all in perfect time for a sunset, and then fireworks after. She definitely knows how to treat you and show you things you would miss if you weren't from the island--even if you have been to Oahu before. Like I said, I've been going for years--if you want a truly unique, tailored, and local tour, book here!! Mahalo Susie and Bali for amazing memories!! I will look for you when I'm back in a couple months! Mahalo nui!! Aloha!

We just got home from a trip to Oahu we had one of the best times ever . Susie and Bali were excellent tour guides. Susie was very attentive to our needs and showed us a lot of places that we had never seen before her price was very reasonable and the kids absolutely loved getting to play with the famous surf dog from Hawaii.
I would highly recommend hiring her for the day she works around whatever schedule you need. Compared to other tours it is reasonably priced and well worth every penny spent... on top of that she takes awesome pictures that you can keep forever with your memories. After spending one day with her you will want to hire her again for another day!!!
I highly recommend Aloha Private Tours I'm just hoping next year she won't be too booked to have us again.

Thank you Susie for such an amazing tour. I did a private tour with her that went around the entire island. Not only is Susie knowledgable but she is also very down to earth which made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I was sight seeing with a long time friend and not someone I had just met. Susie had a lot of interesting facts about every sight we visited that kept me engaged throughout. Thank you so much Susie for an awesome time!!

First of ALL, many many thanks to Susie and her Bali. All the time I feel like I am doing adventure with my family. She really showed me the hidden beauty of the island Hawaii.. Yes, if you want to know the hidden beauty of Hawaii.. Susie is the best.

I do google to find the attractive places nearby. She showed me some places and definitely beautiful that I didn't get through google search.

In simple word, it was a awesome and wonderful tour and I enjoyed a lot. I tried to capture a jumping photo and you know it is little bit tricky and difficult to capture it. She tried more and more until we got the best shot. I liked that. She will try her best you make you happy during the tour. Also, she is very energetic.

I wanted to see volcano and lava. She said she could manage it but my bad I didn't have time to go there. Then she showed me a video (Falling lava in the Sea, it was awesome!!!) that she captured by herself when she visited there. I really loved it.

Whenever I asked for something either she managed it or she wanted to do it. But I didn't have time. Definitely Next time I will make my visit longer and want to do wild adventure with her.

I definitely recommend Susie for anyone who is going to visit Hawaii..
