Excellent day out, and fabulous way to get an overview of Oahu. Our driver (Keamoki) was great. He was very informative about the places, hawaiian culture, language and legends/folklore. He laughed and joked with us, was very welcoming, we were part of his ohana for the day. He told us information about the places we passed through, not just the schedueled stopping places, and passed artifacts, pictures, maps etc around the bus, to help us understand what he was talking about. The Japanese temple was beautiful. So tranquil. We were able to strike the giant bell in an appropriate manner as Keamoki had explained how to do it properly before we left the bus. We made one impromptu stop on the North Shore, as the driver had spotted a turtle on the beach, so we all got a quick look through the windows as there was no-where for us to park the bus and get out. Dole plantation was a bit of a let down. The gardens were pleasant, but the maze, train etc, all cost extra and took longer than our alotted stop-over time. Otherwise a throughly enjoyable day out, highly recommended.

A must for 1st time visitors to Oahu. You get to see some pretty amazing scenery both beaches and mountains. Have a pineapple dessert at the Dole Plantation as that is a winner. The tour guide was exceptional and very funny and entertaining.

This was a really good trip from begining to end. I was a little concerned that the children would find it too much driving, but our driver, Leo, was really good. He knew when to entertain and when to just let us all soak up the views. He made unscheduled stops when he got a call telling him that turtles had come ashore on a beach. Everyone was back to the coach on time and there was plenty of time at each stop to take photos. Unlike other tours we have read about, Leo gave us plenty of time at the Dole plantation and yes we did try the Dole Whip, it was amazing.
We used the knowledge that we gained on this tour to revisit the places we liked the best. It was a really great day and once again for me, Viator has proven that they use the best coach companies for their tours.

This was a great tour. The driver, Just Plain Ed, was informative and funny. Stops could have been longer but then we wouldn't have seen as much and we saw a LOT! Great tour!
