Other things to note
Just sit back and relax let me do all the driving and along the way I will share things about Hawaii and it’s rich history. Get out of your comfort zone and venture around the island with a "friend" and see places you'll talk about to family and friends back home.

Aloha! I’m Julie.
I'm offering an experience to explore O'ahu through the eyes of a local tour guide. My love for the island that I’ve called "home" my entire life, it's people and the local way of life has drawn me to show visitors around the island.

A little bit about me:
I’ve lived in Hawaii all my life and was raised in Pauoa, a nice neighborhood just minutes from downtown Honolulu. I'm one of 6 children from a tight-knit Ohana (family). I'm married to a local guy, who's part Hawaiian and who's family is deeply rooted in Hawaii and together we have 3 wonderful children.
For fun, we enjoy going to the beach, hiking, picnics, barbecuing with friends & family and going around the island.

I’ll take you on a personalized tour to see popular sites, hidden gems, beautiful beaches, majestic mountains and also to enjoy local foods!

Julie took care of us from the get go: water and hand sanitizer amongst these trying times was very thoughtful. We got to see a lot of places beyond Waikiki that I otherwise would not have visited since I didn’t want to rent a car and she had great tidbits along the way. She was very friendly and I really enjoyed every place she took us, even if it rained here and there.

Julie was fabulous. She was warm and very personable. She got to know us first to make sure she tailored the trip to us. The sites were great. There were so many great places to see and hear about. The history and culture without overkill. She made us feel comfortable and safe, and let us decide how much we wanted to do in each site. The best part was Julie. We felt like we became friends in a short span of time. Will definitely recommend.

I had a great time going around the island with Julie! Even though I had been to some of the spots, seeing them through her eyes and while hearing her stories brought a new perspective to my trip. I would 100% recommend Julie over any of the others.

We can’t recommend Julie’s tour of the island of Oahu enough! She knew all of the little lookouts and local hotspots that we would have missed in a bigger tour group or on our own. She also had lots of history and anecdotes to share that made the tour feel that much more personal. But possibly the best part of the tour was how accommodating and flexible Julie was as a host. We had a mobility-impaired group member who was able to enjoy the tour as much as the rest of us. And on the north shore, the sea turtles were out. Because of Julie’s flexibility as a guide, we were able to stop and see them, which was such a treat!
