Leonard’s Malasadas!

“Friendly and flexible”

Mark picked us up from our hotel and we could not have asked for a better day trip! The car was comfortable for a family of 4 and we drove a huge loop around Oahu, stopping at many beaches and sights. There were a few extra things we hadn’t known about, like the coffee place on the way to Dole, and he gave us some local knowledge along the way. We tried the shrimp, the shave ice, the chocolate cream pie, and the best of all was the donuts!! Plus we snorkelled at a few different places, including one with a turtle. This was all possible in one day only because the tour was tailored to what we wanted to do… it was a long day trip but so enjoyable and a great way to see a lot of the island. I can highly recommend Mark and his day trips, do some research about where you want to go and he will fit in as much as possible at a relaxed and friendly pace!

Kokonut’s Shave Ice

“The Best of the Best!!”

Mark was well informed, knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly and stopped often so we could get a better view for picture taking. We also made several stops to taste some of the local snacks (Malasadas) and (Spam Musubi) another stop for shaved ice at Kokonuts at Koko Head Marina. I doubt that many tours give you all that Mark did.  In addition he took 18 or 20 photos with his camera and sent them via email to me and Margaret, my niece.  We had a wonderful time, and if we every go back Mark will again take us around.

What a special way to spend a day–traveling to the north shore
Our driver Mark was just fabulous taking us to places we wouldn’t
Have seen-his knowledge and humour was terrific and beach boy music
Was a bonus–pity no waves at the pipeline!!!
Thanks Mark
Highly recommended.

We engaged Mark as part of of my 70th Birthday Celebrations. Mark was exceedingly helpful in scoping the Tour & on the day, he did not disappoint. He was relaxed, informative throughout & his knowledge of Oahu was brilliant – besides taking us to our ‘must sees’, he took us to places we would never have discovered in the time available. We had a really great day, which was also a lot of fun – just as we wanted. Mark also made some really helpful suggestions for Restaurants, Bars etc which were all excellent. Would very highly recommend.

“Classy day out~!!”

This tour was recommended to me by a friend, and so very glad I took it. Mark is amazing – very obliging and friendly. He knows his stuff, and makes you feel quite special. He will take you where you wish to go, and will make suggestions as well. He took us to a ‘local haunt’ for an awesome lunch. Sitting in the back of the convertible makes you feel quite the ‘star’… Highly recommend this tour.

“Great Personalised Tour”

This is the best option for when you want to look at something that is not on the normal tours, or want to get away from the masses that are on the other tours. We have been to a number of places that tours take you and this outranks them easily. Crusing around in the only 4 door convertible on the island, taking different routes and seeing different sites is an amazing way to see Oahu. Mark is very knowledgeable and a great companion. You not only see what everyone else sees but anything you specifically want to see as well. You don’t have to worry about parking a self drive, or waiting for other passengers to get back on the bus, Mark waits for you and does what you want. Less crowds, more sites, best commentary, what more could you ask for?  Brian & Dorothy  (Hamilton, NZ)

“Best Way to See Oahu!”

From the minute Mark picked us up at the pier cruise terminal to the time he dropped us off at Honolulu International Airport, he went above and beyond to make sure our day was filled will many of the best ‘gems’ Oahu has to offer. Since it was our first visit to Oahu, we left the tour sites and stops in Mark’s capable hands, and he certainly didn’t disappoint us. His friendly personality, in-depth information of the island and its history, along with knowing all of the special stops along the way made for a great way to end our vacation. We would have missed many special sites in Oahu had it not been for our incredible tour with Mark. You won’t be disappointed!

“Relaxed, informative, cruisy fun”

We loved the day. Driving around in a convertible was a big attraction for us. And someone else doing the driving was a big deciding factor. We didn’t want a day dictated by a crowd of other people on a bus shuffling around the island. The day for us was amazing. When we met mark he asked us what we wanted to see, we had some ideas of our own and he also suggested some. The day was totally decided by us. We spent the day cruising around the north shore. We dictated how much time we spent at each place. Mark was so accommodating and happy to go at our pace. He had so much local knowledge to impart. He also had a great cd collection and he had a soundtrack for the day. Very cool. All in all an awesome day and we will definitely be ringing mark when we come back next year for another adventure.  Alec, Nat, & Libby (Australia)

“Relaxing, informative tour”

Mark was recommended by a good friend who had taken the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it too. My husband and I had previously driven around the island on our honeymoon. Returning a year later with another couple we decided to hire Mark as no one then had the responsibility of driving. Mark was flexible and allowed us to tailor the tour to what we wanted to do. He also added in a few highlights that we weren’t aware of. These highlights were fab!! The tour took in samples of food around the island and we loved tasting our way around. He also adding on additional time at a very minimal rate. We had a great day and I would recommend it to allow the freedom of not having to drive yourselves around!!

“Best Ever Tour”

From the minute we were picked up outside our hotel, Mark gave us over and above service! His car is in immaculate condition and he was the best host. He not only has so much knowledge of Hawaii and so many suggestions for places you would never imagine to be seen, but he was polite, humorous and had an amazing selection of music which he played songs from appropriate to every location we visited.  Mark is so good at his job, I would recommend him to anyone looking to see Hawaii from a tourist aspect as well as finding some spots you would never imagine. We saw turtles swimming, swam at beaches, ate lunch from the shrimp van, coffee plantation, pineapple plantation,  visited look outs with the most spectacular views and saw residences along Diamond Head that belonged to the rich and famous.  Tracy, Michelle & girls (Sydney, Australia)

Cool Individual Touring of Hawaii”

If you want a tour that is individual to what you want to see in a cool vehicle either alone or up to 4 people, this is for you. No going on or off buses, a special personal tour of all or some of the great sites and natural wonders of Hawaii. Mark has great local knowledge, friendly, flexible and tuned to your needs and reasonably priced. Very enjoyable and loved the fun of being in a convertible, wind in your hair, sit back and enjoy!!!

“Our Most Rememberable Tour in Hawaii”

This was our third time to Honolulu and we’d thought we had experienced the whole island.  It was only by chance I saw the flier for Hawaii Convertible Personal Tours.  We were met on time by a smiling Mark the owner and our driver for the day. His car was immaculately clean and we worked out where we would like to visit.  Mark took us to some amazing places that are not on the regular tours and not once did he say your time is running out…

I’ve never written a review before but I feel Hawaii Convertible Tours over delivered and we received so much for our money how could I not write a review.  This is a tour you don’t want to miss.  Simon (Ontario, Canada)

“Great way to see the island”

We used Mark 2 days to see north and south parts of the island. Great way to see most things you want on the island; he will personalize the tour to what your group’s needs are and what things you would like to see. Filled us in on sights, history and little fun facts along the way. Plus stopping at some pretty yummy places to try some Hawaiian eats.
Mahalo Mark for being a wonderful part of our trip.

“Private Tour of Oahu”

I spent 2 days with Mark touring all around the beautiful island of Oahu and it was, without doubt, the highlight of my visit. I had visited Oahu four times previously but most of what Mark showed me were places I had never visited. It was a magical tour made very special by Mark’s endless knowledge of the island and his ability to tailor it to your requirements.

I would have absolutely no hesitation, when returning to Oahu, to book another tour with Mark – this would be a MUST on my next visit.

Hawaii Convertible Tours went above & beyond to accommodate our tour. One of our party is disabled confined to a skooter to get around.

“Hawaii Convertible Tours in Oahu, Hawaii”

Last minute decision to venture to the north of Oahu, but so glad we did, and even more so that we did with Mark, and chose Hawaii Convertible Tours to make the trip. Not only did he tailor this to suit our wishes, but he also enhanced this with fabulous visual and culinary delights, that can only come from knowledge and experience. From malasadas to garlic shrimp, with fresh pineapple ice cream, and Hawaiian shave ice, thrown in between stunning scenic views of Honolulu, Waikiki, and of course the journey through the island, in a stunning convertible. If you want to see the island, go ahead and book on a tour, but if you want to really experience the island, this is definitely the one for you. Well recommended. Thank you for a great day, Mark.

My partner and I had a 16 hour layover in Honolulu and decided to make the most of it. We were able to book a tour with Hawaii Convertible Tour’s for a good part of our day. Not only were we able to see everything we wanted to see, but we were also shown fantastic things to see and do that were recommended by our driver Mark.

Overall, we had a fabulous day spent in paradise cruising the island in style. We highly recommend this experience.

We met mark at our hotel, on time fully prepared and off we went. we did so much in 8 hours it was incredible, from the pipeline surfing contest in north beach to turtles, shave ice, cake, pineapple plantation, national cemetery, look out points and so much more.
A safe driver, genuine ‘warm’ family man who enjoys sharing his expert knowledge.  Thankyou Mark we now know which areas to nip back and see on the bus too.

Sensational scenery, special shops, superb surf spots – Mark knows them all. We had a magic day with him in November 2015 – eight wonderful hours being driven in his red convertible to places that we never suspected existed (like backside views of Diamond Head, a fantastic North Shore coffee shop, the beautiful ground-based rainbows of Oahu, etc, etc) and he took us to places we knew of but never expected to visit (like locations from Elvis’ Blue Hawaii, the fabulous North Shore beaches, Hawaiian historical sites, etc, etc ).

We even met John John Florence in the street in Haleiwa!

Mark is super organised, very accommodating, very knowledgeable and an extremely easy guy to get on with. We totally recommend Hawaii Convertible Tours: definitely the highlight of our 10 days in Hawaii.

This was the most memorable and informative tour I have ever had. My daughter, Debbie, and I were so appreciative of the knowledge Mark shared with us from the beginning freshly made donuts until we had to say goodbye to Mark. We learned so much about the history of Hawaii along with so many stories about the island. Mark was so helpful at Punchbowl Cemetery helping to locate and get me to my brother John’s gravesite. I will never forget this experience. Anyone wanting a tour in Hawaii please call Mark to get so much more for your money. Thank you Mark for making my trip to visit my brother’s gravesite for most likely the last time.

We had two wonderful days touring Oahu with Mark. I would recommend Hawaii Convertible Tours and Mark to anyone who wants a private tour of Oahu. Mark was very accommodating of our schedule and picked us up at different locations each day based on our schedule. He took us to sites we wanted to see as well as those we would have never known about without him. We were able to get out to take photos and not worry about driving or parking. Mark is an excellent safe driver and his vehicles allow excellent opportunities for pictures even on the move.

Mark gave us the best possible tour of Honolulu, including all the famous sites and other points of interest that only a native would know. We went up to the north country too. We don’t feel we missed a thing on our trip to Oahu.

Mark was an exceptional tour guide, knowledgeable and patient. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him and see all these remarkable sites!!

As I sit on a crowded tour bus with 400 other cruise ship passengers, I can’t help comparing today’s tour with Mark’s private tour of Oahu. Hands down, it was the highlight of our few days in Honolulu! We hit so many places that are unavailable to traditional tour groups, and each stop was more beautiful than the last.

And to be able to ride around in the island’s ONLY 4-door convertible…locals were taking photos of us! If you have even half a day, it’s well worth booking with Mark.

We got a view from the heights above the city to brief stops at other points of interest.  Mark possesses ‘encyclopedic’ knowledge of Oahu and left no stone unturned to ensure that we had a great tour. All in all, it was a an excellent day and Cabriolet Tours earned our highest recommendation.   Samuel (Texas)

“Fantastic and Unique Touring Experiences!”

We went on tours with this business that included the North shore, Pearl Harbor, beaches, Hanauma Bay, Diamond Head, Hawaiian Historical sights, and more. They were all fantastic! Mark (the owner) tailored the tours to meet our needs and included lookouts, beaches, waterfalls, delicious food, and other stops that are not usually included in tours to create unique experiences for us. His easygoing personality, beautiful convertibles, flexibility to customize tours, and his vast knowledge about Hawaii and its history worked together to result in tours that were far superior to those that we have taken on past visits. He even placed the sights in a timeframe to maximize our experience, such as reaching Sunset Beach just in time to view a gorgeous sunset!  We will definitely call Mark again on our next visit.  Sue & Donna ( Illinois)

“A Way to See Everything You Want When short on Time!”

If you are unfamiliar with Oahu, limited on time, and want to see as much as possible, Mark is the person to hire. I spoke to him many months prior to our trip, he was very pleasant and obliging. I knew I found the perfect person for our needs. When I told my husband the cost, he gulped. However, after the tour he said it was well worth it. So do not think that the cost is unreasonable, because my husband is one of the biggest tightwads on Earth. Mark was able to take us to all the places we wanted to see and more without being rushed. If we chose to do this on our own there would have been no way to have seen all what we did and never have been informed on the history and facts of Oahu and other islands. My husband and two teenage boys like history; me not so much. However Mark made it interesting for me by the way he told us the stories. No one can go wrong hiring him!  Gary, Cathy & boys (Missouri)

Mark and Hawaii Cabriolet Tours provided us a wonderful experience to see and know more about the island of Oahu.  Mark is very resourceful in planning a perfect tour experience which combines history, scenic beauty, small out-of-way attractions and local culture and lore – and all conducted in a snazzy and eye-catching convertible (in our case, the red Audi).  My wife and I spent the perfect “tourist” day, wheeling around the island, sampling local cuisine, admiring the natural beauty and then capping off our 12 hour day with a night-time panoramic view of Honolulu from a nearby mountain drive. Perfect!

We were travelling as 3 couples and pre booked 2 convertibles to see the North Shore of Hawaii. Mark picked us up  and off we went (feeling pretty special in our flash convertibles). Absolutely loved it! Mark was fantastic – showing us the different tastes, smells and sights of Hawaii. The cars were fantastic – who wants a bus full of people when you can do this at a reasonable cost. The girls in one car and guys in the other. Girl’s driver was Suzi who was entertaining and interesting. We went to a coffee plantation (bought a fantastic coffee milkshake). We swam in a waterfall, snorkeled with turtles and ate at local restaurants – we were so glad we did this – I highly recommend you do this too – you won’t be disappointed!

“Perfect Tour!!”

I found Mark on tripadvisor and so thankful I did!!! Our family of three only had 7 days to see Oahu and we wanted to make the best of it. I booked Mark a few months in advance and we emailed back and forth so he could get ideas to customize our tour. We had a beautiful Hawai’i day in his red convertible. A great tour of Honolulu, North Shore, Turtle Bay Resort and all in between. As foodies, took us for malasadas, fruit stands, and the best chocolate cream pie!!!! My teenage daughter loved the trip and all the historical information. Mark is even an author and he has a book at the Pearl Harbor gift shop. My husband is a history buff and loved to hear his experience. Skip those horrible “cattle” tours and book with Mark. He is worth every penny!

Cannot thank Mark and Mariko enough! We would never have seen or done what we did on a regular tour. They know everything, where to go and when. The history and knowledge they have of the Island, the secret spots! They had no problem waiting for us to do things and soak it all up, and the photos they took of us! Memories that will last forever. Nothing I say can describe what a great time we had with them!

We learned so much in such a short amount of time and the day was over before we knew it. Well done, well researched, well organized!

After much reviewing of various personal day trips around Hawaii, we decided to go with Mark in his red Audi convertible – a great choice! You can’t beat hopping into this shiny red car & heading off to explore the island with the roof down & the wind blowing through your hair! Time limited us to only 6 hours & would definitely go for an 8 or 10 hour tour. Pricing was also very reasonable as we had researched this aspect thoroughly. Mark covered the places we wanted to see & shared his local knowledge of the history of the island. We enjoyed some of the island delicacies & he also knew where to enjoy some free samples! To cool off – we had a refreshing dip in the ocean with some sea turtles. Nothing was hurried – the pace was relaxed & we really appreciated Mark’s demeanour in ensuring our trip was memorable. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wanted a personalised tour in a zippy comfortable car.  Thanks Mark for a wonderful day!

It was a very personalized service.

Having been on a bus tour my previous trip and not wanting to drive, a personalized tour was the way to go. Hawaii Cabriolet Tours truly was the BEST choice.

Mark is knowledgeable, personable and a steady driver which made for a fun and comfortable day on the road for us 2 girls! The balmy fresh breeze along the coast in a convertible was very relaxing.

Mark accommodated our to do list and added on other areas of interest en route. Mark also acted as our personal photographer : ) The seamless windows/lack of pillars also made it real easy to take photos from the car. The pace was entirely up to us so we never felt rushed.

If I’m in Oahu again, will definitely give Mark a ring. Don’t just read the reviews here, experience it next time when you’re in Hawaii!

Wholeheartedly recommended!

Great way to see the island – and so cool to drive around beautiful Hawaii in a red convertible. Mark is a great tour guide / host. A really nice, easy going guy and very informative and knowledgeable. It was really nice to be able to structure a tour to meet our personal interest.

We were really lucky to turn up at Punchbowl cemetery just as the full dress rehearsal for the ANZAC day service was happening and Mark was happy to let us stay and watch, even managing a few sneaky photo opportunities.

We really appreciated the opportunity to spend time at some of Hawaii’s best surfing beaches, and the shaved ice at Haleiwa was the best ever.

Thank you Mark for a great day out in Hawaii. Stewart & Lyn (Sydney, Australia)

We were in town for the American Counseling Association conference and had a day to spend out and about, so we booked an all day tour with Mark. Riding around in a convertible with a tailored itinerary to what we wanted to see was perfect! Some of the highlights were learning some Hawaiian history at Iolani Palace, going to North Shore to see the honu (green sea turtles), stopping at Waimea Valley for a dip in the waterfall (this is a MUST do), and sunset at Spitting Cave. It was a relaxing day with lots of personal touches. Ate some amazing fish tacos and garlic shrimp at a local spot (we would have never found that on our own) and enjoyed some of Leonard’s malasadas to close out our perfect day. There were just too many stops and treats to mention, but highly recommend the Cabriolet Tour with Mark!

My husband and I recently enjoyed a wonderful full day with Mark touring in his shiny red convertible and seeing the beautiful sights on Oahu! We really liked hearing some of the history about the various places we went. Mark is quite knowledgeable and makes it very interesting. We saw sea turtles up close, swimming and sunning on the beach, whales off in the distance spouting, many amazing lookouts, parks and beaches, the highest waves ever on the North Shore, Honolulu night lights from atop a mountain on a beautiful clear night and so much more! Mark took us to a wonderful donut place and we had some of the best donuts ever, pie at another place and a nice lunch also.

Mark will tailor your trip to your desires. You can plan the itinerary or let him take you to the places he thinks you would enjoy.  We highly recommend his Hawaii Cabriolet Tours to everyone who wants to experience Hawaii, especially some of the “off the beaten path” sights.

We snorkeled, hiked a bit, had great shave ice, great plate lunch, and learned something new. Boston had a great time talking to Mark, snorkeling, seeing the turtles swimming and on the beach.

Mark took us to see our family and to the temple! It was a whirlwind tour around the island but we enjoyed every minute of it.

Thanks Mark!!!! We highly recommend you as a personable, friendly and knowledgeable tour guide!!

Had a fabulous day touring Oahu with Mark in his red Audi!

We hiked to hidden ruins, travelled to amazing lookouts and lunched on a beautiful beach.

The day was the perfect blend of sightseeing, history of the Island and relaxation.

Mark was a great tour guide and we enjoyed every second of the tour. We can’t wait to return…

Like most tourists we want to see as much sights as possible in the little time we have. What a better way than to drive around in a convertible with someone who has the local knowledge. Mark is very personable and we get to learn some history of the area, saw some incredible sights and had a nice relaxing lunch overlooking the sea. We even get a stop to do some shopping. We are so glad we didn’t hire a car as first planned, we wouldn’t have seen and learn so much in a day. It also took away the stress of driving in a place we know nothing about.

Well done Mark, we highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for personalized service.

Mark is the ultimate guide who shares the history of the island with ease as you venture around the island in a most interesting way. He offers customized freedom-wherever you want to go Mark will take you and even surprise you with some hidden gems like the spitting caves and an awesome Thai lunch. Easy going, good humored and attentive….need a coffee, Mark knows the place to get the absolutely best Mocha freeze (with 3 shots of espresso) on the island. Want a picture on the beach at sunset-you’ll be in the right spot at exactly the right time and Mark will even take the photo for you. If you are visiting Oahu go with Hawaii Cabriolet Tours and you will capture your island memories in a most unique and unforgettable way.

My wife and I spent the BEST DAY of our 10-day Hawaiian trip with Mark and Hawaii Cabriolet Tours. They do not get any better than Mark…period. We had 3 other guides on our trip and my wife and I agreed HE WAS THE BEST! He delivered from start to finish and we felt relaxed and not rushed the entire time. He is so knowledgeable about many aspects of Hawaii but I was most impressed with his quick-wit when it came time for Karen and I to change our clothes we brought along for the luau. Where are we going to do this? A restroom on the beach? Eh? Mark’s solution was the restrooms at a golf course on the way THAT-WERE-SPOTLESS! And my wife and I appreciated this attention to detail. He waited while we stuffed ourselves and enjoyed the Chief’s Luau and then after the show he took us to get shaved ice at a destination our President has been to. He made this day very special for us.  Greg & Karen (Ohio)

My Mom, sister and I were in Oahu for just one day and what a great day it was!  Mark, picked us up from Pearl Harbor in style and with Hot Yummy Donuts.  He was so knowlegeable about the Hawaiian History and knew all the great out of the way spots to take us to.  He showed us the true Oahu.

Not only was he a great tour guide but a great photographer.  Our pictures from this trip were amazing.  Also, we loved that he took us to eat where the locals eat.(Delicious!)  By the time he dropped us off at the airport we felt like we were leaving family!!  He is such a Sweet Man!  So if you want to see the true Oahu then call Mark!  Mahalo.

Mark is a wonderful human being, full of details, he proposes some attractions, but you yourself can build your ride with the sites that interest you. Mark is a very learned man and not only knows about history, also enriches the ride with anecdotes. He has an Audi convertible, beautiful and very clean, allows you to have a 360 degree view of the places. Mark also stops where you want. It is more expensive than a group tour, but worth it, for several reasons: 1.-You can personally manage, where to go and how long to stay, is very personlized experience. 2.-If it rains or is too hot, you can have roof up. 3.-No need to walk from the parking lot or elsewhere to get somewhere. 4.-Personally accompany your walk so you will get more out of your time on Oahu. 5.-Mark is a perfect gentleman which makes you feel very comfortable. 6.-He was a sailor and writer so much of his knowledge is quality, no chatter or fairy tales for tourists, one can say that the tour is to teach. During the ride Mark offers some tasty Hawaiian based juices to keep you hydrated, offering to wear a cap to protect from the sun. At lunchtime takes you to an excellent and clean place with very cheap prices. “Mark es fantástico”  Ale and Carmen (Caracas, Venezuela)

Thank you Mark for a fabulous couple of days touring around the island of Oahu. Right from the time we first made contact with Mark via email, right through until the end of our tour, Mark was professional, informative, reliable and a joy to deal with. He picked us up from our hotel bang on time and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The days were perfect – a great mix of history, adventure and sight seeing. At no time did we feel that we were being rushed or pressured into seeing things that didn’t interest us. We spent as much time as we liked at each location and Mark made us feel very special. Mark has a wealth of knowledge about the island and it was facinating to hear his stories.

We highly recommend Mark – book with him rather than a crowded tour bus that rushes you from place to place. See Oahu in style and see the things that interest you.   Absolutely fabulous!  Steve and Sam (United Kingdom)

We love Hawaii Cabriolet Tours!!! Instead of getting a standard “touristy tour” on a crowded bus and on a set schedule, Mark put together a tour that was tailored to our tastes and at each spot he walked through with us, sharing with us the history and insight you only get from a local! I did quite a bit of research on the island before we came, but even with all my research I never would have found even a fraction of the spots he took us to. These are not sights you’d find in a guide book or even be able to find on your own, they are truly hidden gems. Plus, we really liked Mark’s style, he is just a really nice guy who is easy going and flexible. It was also especially nice for us because we have 2 small kids and at each spot we could take as little or as much time as we wanted, we never felt rushed and we never felt held back. He knows a lot about the island but he doesn’t inundate you with pointless trivia. Also, I love pictures and he took great pictures of us at every spot, it was amazing going through the photos the next day, I couldn’t believe all of the awesome stuff we had seen and done, it was like a vacation within our vacation! We had such an amazing time and it was truly a highlight of our trip!

We have been to Oahu numerous times but we have never seen and enjoyed Oahu the way we did when we had Mark show us around. It was a truly customized and personalized tour. Mark showed us what we wanted to see and more! We enjoyed our convertible ride and had a wonderful time with Mark.

There is no other way to see Oahu. I recommend experiencing Oahu on a different level with Cabriolet Tours.

Mark will certainly show you all that Oahu has to offer, from the smallest take away store to the best of the best sight to see on Oahu, plus Marks knowledge of the island is remarkable we learnt a lot from him.

Hubby was very happy that Mark knew where to take him to see the great golf courses. Will recommend Mark to everyone.

We toured the SE part of Oahu with Mark in early March. My DH, 9 year-old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the sights, neighborhoods, historical places, snorkeling and Hawaiian ice. Mark took us to places that tours would have covered, however, we were able to do it much more efficiently as a small group. That freed up our time to see out of the way spots and local things that were unique and fun. Mark was very patient with our daughter and even got her to snorkel with him for the first time! She loved it. We really appreciated his love of history, his knowledge and his interesting background. We highly recommend Hawaii Cabriolet Tours!

My husband Colin and I had a wonderful experience while visiting Oahu HI. We went on a tour with Mark. He took us to places that some of the locals only know about. Besides seeing some beautiful sites, we made a new friend. It was like we had known Mark all of our lives.

I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. Mark adapts the trip to what you would like to see and also to your abilities.

Mark thank you for a wonderful, wonderful time. It was a pleasure to get to know you.

Rob and I would just so much like to say thank you for today.. It was just so wonderful! Probably up there with the best tours I have ever had and that is saying something. My daughter and I did a beaut in France which took in the Eiffel Tower, lunch at the restaurant there, the morning seeing special sights of Paris, the afternoon at Versailles, and an evening dinner cruise on the Seine culminating with a return to the Eiffel Tower sparkling like a Christmas tree. Yet I place our day today alongside that. I guess, it was the personal touch, one on one, your knowledge of local culture and scenery. We felt that we were seeing things that other tourists do not get to see, and you did add so much to it with your Elvis film additions etc. Once again, thank you, it was a truly wonderful day. Best Wishes Always,

Jenny and Rob (Perth, Australia)

My wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary and rented a SmartCar. It was great but we didn’t feel like we had enough time to see all we wanted to see.

A friend recommended Hawaii Cabriolet Tours. Mark started the tour with a few questions and within minutes created a customized tour that was unique to our interests. We saw several things off the beaten path that we would have missed on our own, or with a big tour. We were able to spend as much, or as little time as we wanted at each stop. Mark has a wealth of knowledge of the island and its history. We ate at local eateries, hiked to hidden ruins and visited beaches we didn’t know existed. We spent the better part of a day with Mark and at the end, felt we had seen and learned so much about Oahu.

Thanks, Mark, for the great tour around the southeast part of Hawaii.  It was SO much fun to hear all the interesting information and to see places that the average tourist never sees!  I think my husband enjoyed not having to worry about driving and yet seeing so many things!

It’s hard to say what we liked best–the beach, the sunset locations, Pele’s chair, the state park overlooks, the Punchbowl…it was all great!

Thank you again,  Dave and Susan (France)

The tour was great!   It was more personal than being on a big bus full of other tourists.   We stopped for snacks and sight-seeing whenever we wanted.

The guide, Mark, is knowledgable in the places and history of the island.   He knows the “behind the scenes” places that the typical tour may not go.    It was fun and informative.

Cabriolet Tours is THE WAY to see Hawaii.  Mark’s warm and friendly personality sets the tone for a great experience.  He showed us things we would never have discovered on our own along with fascinating history of the island.  At the same time we could go where we wanted and stop where we liked for as long or short as we liked.

This tour was the highlight of our Hawaiian vacation.

We thoroughly enjoyed Mark’s tour. He brought us to places with breathtaking views that we never would have found on our own. His historical background information really enriched the tour and gave us great perspective. His tour was fun, and it brought Oahu to life.

He knew some great spots to eat and shop, as well. We saw the house of a famous celebrity, and some great real estate options with beautiful views! We touched history at the Punchbowl Cemetery and had our hearts moved. We would highly recommend Mark’s tour.

I highly recommend Mark’s tour of Oahu.  Mark is knowledgeable, friendly, and funny – the perfect guide!  I had been to Hawaii many times previously, and yet Mark had me discovering scenic parts of Oahu that I never knew existed like the most awesome aerial view of Honolulu.

A typical scenario: Mark takes us to a beautifully quaint and delightfully “untouristy” neighborhood.  He parks on some side street, leads us down a narrow, obscure pathway, and all of a sudden we have before us a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean, the back side of Diamond Head, magnificent cliffs, and a cave taking in and spitting out the crashing waves.

We absolutely LOVED it !

September 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Mark. My wife was thrilled with the open top Cabriolet and I was happy because I did not have to rent a convertible.  Mark is humorous, engaging, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable. If we had a question about the island or stop, he knew the answer.

We hiked Diamond Head Crater, saw Hanauma bay, and  other main sites. We also appreciated the off the beaten path stops.

After parking on a side street, we hiked 3 minutes and suddenly had a breathtaking view of the ocean and the rocks (pictured left). Mark adapted the trip to our needs as we had an 18 month toddler who did not like to sit for long. Next time we go back, we’ll have to hit Oahu just for this tour.

Diamond Head Hike

We thoroughly enjoyed Mark’s tour.  The hike up Diamond Head was a great hike for our family, even with our five year old.  We saw Hanauma Bay, played in the waves at Kailua Beach, and had a tasty lunch at Teddy’s Burger place.We really enjoyed driving through neighborhoods in Honolulu and finding obscure little trails to take down to the ocean cliffs.  Gorgeous views of the ocean, waves crashing on the rocks and even watching some guys diving off the cliffs into the waves.  Totally stuff we’d never have found on our own.  Mark is a fun, friendly guy, a natural tour guide.  He was a wealth of information and we enjoyed learning lots about Hawaii and its people.  I’d highly recommend his tours.
