Great trip to see south shore of Oahu. Driver very informative of area and gave us good time for stops and photo opportunities. Stop near Waimanalo beach for ice cream stop too. If you don't want to spend all day on a bus on a full circle tour this is a good one to do. I took tour on a Friday afternoon so there was quite a bit of traffic to get us back to our drop off points - you just need to be patient as it is not the tours fault.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This was a wonderful tour. We had a very small group (6) and our tour guide made certain that we had time to see all of the points of interest. Our guide was friendly, very knowledgable and she was excited about what she was doing. When we finished the tour we felt that it was time well spent and we finished with smiles on our faces.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

One of the many highlights of our trip. So many beautiful and different landscapes in one trip. Possibly the most efficient way to see the south side of Oahu in a short half-day trip. From Diamond Head to Hanauma Bay, to the countryside and Pali Lookout, we even got in some added bonus like Coconut Island where they filmed Gilligan's Island and several other iconic Hollywood filming locations. There were plenty of stops and photo ops along the way, and just the drive itself is amazing. I would highly recommend this tour for people of all ages.

The tour itself is a must, but the company was fantastic, especially our guide, Cousin Dwight. The bus was practically new and very clean and comfortable. It had a bathroom and strong air conditioning. Our tour guide, Cousin Dwight is one of the most enthusiastic and passionate people I have ever met and he made our tour that much greater. He is hospitable and entertaining and has so much intricate knowledge of the island and culture. As a great added bonus, Cousin Dwight took us past the Hospital where President Obama was born, his grandmother's apartment, and even the local Baskin Robins where he worked as a kid scooping ice cream. I took so many beautiful photos on this trip and took home even more knowledge. Mahalo Cousin, and thanks for treating us all like Ohana!!!!
