This trip was great. It felt a little rushed towards the end. Most of us was really interested in seeing where Obama lived and grew up. We had to remind the guide to include this on the way back. Overall she was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to have as a guide.
I liked this tour. But you drive by diamond head that's all a quick look out your window. For me this was fine but there is no stop at diamond head if your looking for that this isn't your tour. But if you want to see where the locals live and beautiful beaches I would recommend this tour.
Taking this tour was a good way to see plenty of sights from the comfort of an air conditioned bus. We were taken to beautiful look out points and were given the chance to get off and take photos before heading off to the next spot. Definetly a good one for older or less mobile visitors.
I won't give it an A+, but it was informative (driver pointed out many interesting places)and tour was OK. Would liked to have gone higher up on Diamond Head
but, no real complaints!
Very informative trip to Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, Hanauma Bay. Had a stop at Wailea which was essentially to try and get us to spend money at a store the driver Dwight endorsed, telling us the prices were 'special' for his 'good looking cousins, his 'ohana' which is what he kept calling the passengers on the tour. Dwight certainly knew his stuff and was well informed but he became really annoying after a while. Sometimes 'less is more' and I think by the end of the afternoon people were relieved to get off the coach. He had an opinion on everything and was very keen to push his beliefs which is ok perhaps in a different forum. I would still recommend the tour but be prepared for an ear bashing if Dwight is driving.
Very nice tour! I really liked the macadamia farm and factory. My favorite stop was the orchid store!!
Good tour, but a bit disappointed we didn't go to Diamond Head, we just drove near it.
Being a 70 yr. old from another country,booking a tour on the net a month or so before our holiday was quite daunting for us, but the tour went like clockwork, was very enjoyable and because we didn't hire a car, saw many sights and lookouts. Aunty was a great guide and we loved every minute of it.
We were able to see a great number of beautiful sights in a short amount of time. Bus was comfortable and the driver had an extensive knowledge of the area.
This was overall a great tour. The sights were great, and our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. The only downside was that the tour information makes it appear that the tour includes seeing Queen Emma's Summer Palace, which it doesn't. So it would be nice if that was clarified in the information section. Otherwise, great tour!
Half day tour was well worth doing as it was very hot, a full day would have been too demanding. very friendly informative guide
This was a well organised tour covering the lower section of the island. The scenery was fantastic.
Expected to go to Diamond Head - not just drive by - that seemed to be misleading in the name of the tour
We were picked up ay our hotel almost an hour after our stated pick up time. Tour was good however and tour guide/ driver was pleasant and knowledgeable.
Quite a nice short tour, visited very scenic locations.
Driver was very informative, friendly and helpful.
The tour was rushed and the driver seemed more interested in beating the Honalulo traffic than giving a full value tour. Pick up at the hotels was finished by 1.30 pm and we were told we would be back about 5 which meant the tour would be 3 and a half hours which seemed a bit short on the promised time anyway but we were back around 4.10 which meant we got a 2 hours 40 minute tour which meant it was not good value which was a shame as the area covered was very attractive.
Shame diamond head was a drive by only, and no chance to stop for photos
I was surprised that we did not actually go to the top of Diamond Head itself - also, a large part of the first half of the drive was through residential neighborhoods (described by our guide as "our Beverly Hills") which was fine with me (I love to look at houses) but might not have been so welcome to some of the passengers. Our female guide was very good.
