Great day tour... Had a great guide as well Keano not sure how to spell is his name. He was very knowledgeable of the island, he was fun to hang out with.
Our driver was great and very informative. We all enjoyed the trip. My only suggestion is to let folks know that they should bring snacks and won't necessarily eat until 3-4 pm.
We really enjoyed the visit to the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri.
Going to Pearl Harbor was amazing. I recommend that for everyone staying in Hawaii. The USS Missouri was also a lesson in history. Lunch at the harbor on the dock is awful so save your appetite for dinner. We didn't get a chance to look at punchbowl outside the bus, just a drive through. Honolulu was not that exciting with just a place or two to stop for pictures. The traffic there is much heavier than in Maui. The final stop was about an hour at Waikiki beach, just enough time to grab dinner and take a pic on the beach. We ate at Duke's and the fish was awesome. Don't take a backpack, you won't need one. You can save money by not taking a pocketbook, either. You would have to check that into a locker at Pearl Harbor. This tour was good as they picked us up at the hotel and returned us at night. The bus drivers were great. It is a long day trip, but worth it to get back to Maui the same day. You will not forget seeing Pearl Harbor. If you do not want to plan a day trip to Oahu yourself, taking this tour is easy planning so you can relax. I priced it out separately and the cost was the same if we rented a car, bought plane tickets and tour tickets. The benefit to the tour is that you don't have to drive through the traffic, someone else does! You just have to make sure that you don't hold up the group getting back to the airport after dinner. If you don't mind being on a set schedule, then you should do this. Just remember that you will be up at 5 am and back to the hotel after 9 pm.
Very good, bus driver was very knowledgeable. His name was Garfield. Enjoyed the trip.
Booking with Viator seemed like an unnecessary 3rd party that did nothing after passing the booking on to Pollynesian Adventure Tours. Received no itinerary. Pickup point at Oahu airport unclear and groups were waiting at different places delaying the departure to begin the tour. Return flight to Maui was 8:40pm, was told it would be 7:00pm. Dropped off at airport at 6:30pm. Could have had another hour in Waikiki but instead spent the time waiting at the airport.
Everything we saw on the tour did meet our expectations and we enjoyed it verry much.
We loved the tour at Pearl Harbor and the tour of the Missouri and the Bowfin Sub. The guide was excellent.The only thing we did not like was our return trip back to Maui. The Island Air flight was delayed for about two hours. Therefore we were back in Maui at 10:30 and we still had a 45 minutes drive to our condo.
We should have been back at 8:00 and it would still have been light outside.
It was a great trip and we had a great driver/tour guide!!! Thanks, Chemo!!!
THE ONE DAY TRIP TO OAHU WAS OK. THE VAN PICKED US UP RIGHT ON TIME NEAR OUR CONDO AND GOT US TO AIRPORT WITH TIME TO SPARE. WE WERE GREETED BY YOUR REP. AND SHE TOOK US ALL THE WAY TO SECURITY AND WAS VERY HELPFUL. WHEN WE ARRIVED IN OAHU THERE WAS NO ONE TO GREET US OR ANYONE TO TELL US WHERE TO GO. WE FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHICH BUS TO GET ON. THE DRIVER COULD NOT LEAVE THE BUS AND COME INTO THE TERMINAL SO WE WERE ON OUR OWN. ONCE THE BUS GOT GOING WE HAD TO PICK UP OTHER PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T HAVE DIRECTION AS TO WHERE TO GO. ONCE WE GOT GOING THE BUS DRIVER WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AS WE WENT BY DIFFERENT SITES.
WHEN WE GOT TO uSS ARIZONA MEMORIAL THE DRIVER INDICATED TO EVERYONE WE HAD TO BE BACK BY A CERTAIN TIME. THE TIME ALLOCATED FOR THIS STOP ISN'T ENOUGH TO SEE EVERYTHING. THEN IT WAS A STOP AT THE USS MISSOURI. ONCE AGAIN WE HAD TO BE BACK BY A CERTAIN TIME WHICH DIDN'T ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO SEE ALL YOU COULD SEE ABOARD SHIP. THEN WE VISITED THE PUNCHBOWL. I UNDERSTAND WE COULDN'T GET OFF THE BUS BUT WE COULD HAVE STOPPED AND ALLOW PEOPLE FROM ONE SIDE TO SEE WHAT WAS ON OTHER SIDE. THEN WE STOPPED AT WAKIKI BEACH. THE BUS DRIVER SAID WE HAD TO BE BACK BY A CERTAIN TIME. THE PROBLEM WE HAD IS THAT JUST ABOUT ALL THE STORES WERE HIGH END. THERE MUST BE ANOTHER AREA THAT WOULDN' BE AS EXPENSIVE. THE TIME REMAINING WAS TIME TO GET US BACK TO AIRPORT. NO ONE AT THE AIRPORT TO ASSIST YOU. OUR FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED BUT WE WERE LUCKY TO CATCH A FLIGHT THAT GOT US BACK TO MAUI AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME. I DON'T KNOW WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED TO US IF THE FLIGHT WAS BOOKED AND WE COULDN'T GET OUT. WOULD WE HAVE BEEN PUT UP FOR THE NIGHT,TRANSPORTATION, MEALS, ETC ??. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS HAVING ENOUGH TIME AT THE DROP OFF LOCATIONS. WE DID ENJOY SEEING WHAT WE DID SEE. THANK YOU, LARRY CASSERLY
Bus driver Garfield was awesome and very informative...had a great day!
Generally very good. I didn't like that we had to wait on the bus in the morning for all the other participants to arrive on their flights. When time was so tight it was disappointing to waste 30 minutes. I was also disappointed that we couldn't get off the bus to get a photograph of the Royal Palace. I would have liked to have had less time for shopping at the end of the day and more time for walking around downtown Honolulu.
Tour guide was great. Everything was on schedule. However, disappointed that trip to Arizona was canceled due to weather conditions. Yet, they did a great job finding alternative venues to see.
We enjoyed the trip and tour. Our Driver: Keao was great. He truly is an asset to your conpany.
He made it more excitiing adn informative.
Thanks for a ggreat experience
A well organized trip, everything happened very efficiently. Pearl Harbor visit is a santurary of US history, well with the trip and the time. Visiting the Missouri Battleship was an educational experience in itself, not just because of the signing of the peace treaty, but how our sailors lived while on board the ship. Returning to Honolulu after 45 years, one is amazed how the city has grown. This is a great trip for the entire family.
