Purchasing the go Oahu card made our holiday easier - the touristy things were essentially chosen for us.
Travelling to and from different destinations was the only issue.
We hired a car on our 4th day which made getting around so much more convenient than catching public transport and a lot less expensive than hiring taxis.
I hope to see these cards available in other countries.
Great value for the card. Way too much to do in one day, and totally worth the price.
The card was great and I saved a lot of time and money when booking. I would recommend if travelling with Adults as there is so much to do. I had a child's card also, but as he is only 6yrs old, there was alot he didn't want to do, maybe more suited for a child a little bit older.
We were extremely happy that we chose to purchase a 3-day Go Oahu Card! We did the Grand Island Tour with Bob. (Outstanding information was shared by this wonderful tour guide!) We also traveled to the Pearl Harbor tour and the Germaine's Luau. (Both of these were enjoyed by both my husband and myself!) As our bonus, we traveled to the North part of the island with Cousin Pelie and very much enjoyed his cultural experience which was shared in all the areas of the Polynesian Cultural Center. WE WILL TRAVEL AGAIN BUT NEXT TIME PERHAPS DO A CRUISE TO SEE THE OTHER ISLANDS AS WELL!!! The BEST part of the trip was getting the chance to meet many wonderful people from other parts of the world that WE WILL STAY IN TOUCH WITH!!! Roger and Robin Fryman-Guttromson
Great card, easy to use, so long as you make the most of what it has to offer then it can give you significant savings.
Definitely a great value. Great way to see the sights and is very good value. The trolley buses takes you to all the venues.
The card is worth doing if you have your days planned out. We saved using the card wisely.
It had many choices, it was hard to pick from.
The driver Fred was great. Great educational information. We had to leave the tour early and he totally took care of us like ohana. Mahalo Fred. Disappointed that we didn't get to go to the Pali Lookout and the Dole Plantation.
we got the 2 days pass and idnt find it worth it, we went to the sea life park (lame) and did the grand circle island tour (excellent) Would have been cheaper to do these individually
We purchased the Go Oahu card to gain entry into various sites within the area. However, after having to take 2 hours to drive to the location to pick up the card, go through the red tape of getting the card, and driving back to one of the sites we wanted to see, we did not have time to use the card for other attractions. We also found out that getting into Pearl Harbor was no charge so we felt the money spent for the card was a waste for us. I recommend getting a card only if one is going to be on the island for more than one day.
Note from Viator: Thanks for your review, we asked the Go Oahu Card staff for their feedback on your experience. Here's their reply:
'We're sorry you had such a hard time finding a redemption location. We now offer 3 easy locations for people to pick up their cards, which we hope makes it an easier experience. You are correct that Pearl Harbor is free to get into, what we do offer is free admission to the audio tour, the USS Missouri, the Bowfin Submarine and Museum, and the Pacific Aviation Museum. The savings at these alone is over $35.'
I am extremely disappointed with this purchase, on arrival in Hawaii I was advised that I could have purchased the 4 cards for $200.00 less than I paid through Viator. We organised the Pearl Harbour tour with the local Viator agent and found out that it was very rushed and there was no time to use the card inclusions to the full advantage, we did not get to the submarine or battleship and then the bus driver expected a tip-no way
The luaua was the worst I have experienced and again we had to pay further to get there.
My children did enjoy Kualoa ranch but had to spend a considerable amount of $ to be able to do all the activities while there.
We could have organised these tours in Waikiki for a lot less then the cost of the cards
I would not recommend this to anyone as it is a rip off
We were pressed for time everyday that our go oahu card was good for 3 days. First, it was such a hassle to have to start after 9 a.m. just to activate the card at the Maui Divers as this is not available at any Maui Divers store, when most activities start at 7am. Just to get the bonus for the 3 day which was Germaine's Luau, we had to swipe the card in the middle of the day. That means, we cannot use the card on other activities, because, we could come back late for the swipe. Ridiculous. For first timers in Oahu, it is much better to go to the luau as it includes the show.
We had problems getting to some of the locations also some of the vendors. One could not swipe our cards and held them some time which meant that we were too late for the next attraction that day. Another vendor did not operate on the days that we were using the cards. We could have purchased tickets to the attractions on the street much cheaper than advertised the website. This card may be ok for people who have a car and know their way around Oahu.
