This was my first trip to Hawaii and the Sunrise Full Day Adventure Photo Tour was one of my best experiences. You could not ask for a better tour guide than Alex. He was helpful, entertaining, and knew of all the best places to go. He got to know everyone on the tour and offered great tips for our stay in Hawaii.

This is the perfect addition to any vacation and I would suggest taking the tour at the beginning of your trip.

This tour as the title says is the first thing you should do upon your arrival in Oahu.
Alex not only takes you to many attractions he gives you a tremendous amount of information about each place as well as other observations that we found priceless.
We found Alex to be abundantly generous with his time and knowledge. He was very patient with showing you how to use your camera.
Moreover, Alex came across as a extremely bright man who was unaffected. Throw in a good sense of humor and you have a great guy.
Once you see most of the top attractions on the Island you can go back to which ones you want more knowledgeable at what you are looking at.
We can’t thank Alex enough.

I had this tour with Mac, and it was a blast. If you want more personal, small group, educational yet fun experience, join this tour instead of a big tour. You get to learn the history, culture, people and photography from Mac, and of course, not to mention his cool, laid back and fun personality. And this company does not cancel trip easily and makes things easy for you. I was in Hawaii going through a big storm and rescheduling and rearrangement of tours around due to the weather were made easy through them (because of how small group focused they are). You get to see the island in a less touristy way, thus avoiding the crowd and at the same time not missing anything essential. Totally recommend this.

This tour took us to all over the island. We started with a great sunrise at the beach touring the coast , inland agricultural areas, and finished off at a coffee plantation with excellent java. Alex was a great host and showed us the real Hawaii.

Oahu Photography Island Tour is great fun and the best photo tour ever.
Our guide Kurt Stevens an excellent teacher/tour guide, the places/spots he took us were amazing beautiful plus he shared tips on using both iPhone and large camera, how to edit photos to make them totally “Wow”, also web resources for use later, I learned so much from him.
He’s a great person to spend 10 hours in the car, not a boring moments. He’s talented,charming, funny and dedicated to protecting local environments.
I will go with this company again.

My wife and I went on the Oahu Photography tour with Kurt. He was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the locations, best food places, the local communities, conscientious, outgoing, and friendly. There were 7 people total within my group, including a couple who had gone on the other tours offered by the company. We were all tired in the morning, but Kurt's cheery attitude never wavered. He also made sure we were comfortable, put in bathroom stops when needed, and was flexible in his planning to accommodate a trip to the fruit market when we needed a break.

I am a beginner's level hobbyist photographer, and Kurt was very helpful in guiding my development and giving me ideas on how to become better over time. At the end of the tour, he also provided us his IG contact and shared photos he took of us as well. He provided himself as a resource in case you had any additional questions during the rest of our vacation - which is a very nice gesture.

If you have a passing interest in photography (with your iPhone or actual camera), this is a great way to see and capture a lot of the great scenic views around Oahu. And then you can revisit your favorite places (as my wife and I did with the North Shore) on the rest of your journey.

I would recommend this to anyone looking to explore and get a general idea of the island!

PS: Please do not be late in the morning - it is important to be on time so that you have time to get to the sunrise location prior to sun rise!

I cannot recommend this tour and specifically this company highly enough!!! I took 2 tours with them - sunrise and full island + night sky, and it was THE highlight of my trip!!
Both Alex and Mac were AMAZING!!! They have a ton of energy, a genuine desire to make sure you get awesome pix, take you to the BEST photo spots that exceed your expectations, and are super fun and chill to be with!

I now plan to return to Oahu and take every single one of their tours, that's how much I was blown away by their service and the experience I had with them :)

You will absolutely have no regrets taking any of their tours - the only regret will be if you DON'T take any of their tours. The prices are very reasonable given the extremely high quality of the experience you get in return.

Take their tours! I don't have enough words to praise them for their professionalism, dedication to making sure each guest goes back with unforgettable memories and just being super super nice people - you will have a blast!!

We did the full island and sunrise tour with Alex and had a great time. He took the time to help us setting up our DSLR and iphone cameras for optimal outdoor photos. We got great photos from sunrise outside Waikiki to the north shore and throughout the island. He also took us to some well known food locations from Giovanni's shrimp truck to leonards malasadas to a coffee shop with very tasty iced coffee.

Would definitely recommend and we would not hesitate to book again for our next Hawaii trip.

We went on the Oahu Photography tour today and we had a fantastic time. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very fun and entertaining. We got to see spots on the island that we never would have found ourselves and we got amazing photos along the way. These guys don’t nickel and dime you and provide an excellent experience. 5 Stars all around!

Great tour! This was the best way to see several spots around the island. The sunrise was amazing. And De-Jay, our tour guide, was great. He was very knowledgeable about Hawaii’s history and culture, and shared cool tips about using the camera on our phone. The group size was just the right size, so that we were all able to get to know each other and have inside jokes by the end of the tour. Can’t wait to come back to Hawaii and take another tour with these guys.
