Very interesting and entertaining, our driver/guide Garfield is the best. The tour can be enjoyed by any age group 8+, I would say. Lot's of stuff to see and learn, impossible to do it yourselves without a good guide.
Great tour. Be aware that lunch is not included in the price
This was the best tour we took on the island. Ask for Earnie he was a terrific tour guide full of interesting facts and humor and had great suggestions and helpful hints at each stop. Also recommend asking for the scenic van rather than the large bus. Much better viewing and can go more places. We stopped at so many beautiful spots for great pictures and had good food along the way. From barbecue at the Kualoa Ranch, macedamia at the outlet (buy your gifts here, they will ship) and ending with delicious pineapple sorbet at the Dole plant.
fantastic tour the tour guide was great. I give it 10 out of ten.
This was a very nice tour of the island, stopping at lovely picture-taking spots and lunch at the Kualoa Ranch (is think that is the name?) was wonderful. A lovely way to spend a day on Oahu and see a lot. MAHALO
Our Driver/Guide Garfield would have to be one of the best ever. There didn't appear to be anything or anyone he didn't know and his sense of humour was great. The three of us really enjoyed this tour. Really enjoyed his explanation as to their alphabet and how to pronounce their words so now the Hawaiian words are not so unpronouncable anymore. Also loved his telling about Hawaiian beliefs. Having grown up in the 1960s seeing Waimua Bay, Pipeline and Sunset Beach was wonderful. Same thing with the beach where From Here to Eternity was filmed and the blowhole as well. Would I do this tour again? You bet if Garfield was the driver/guide.
Amazing trip around Oahu. I sat on the right side of the bus and got to see ALL of the amazing sights. The stops along the way are breathtaking! The Dole Planation was the least impressive but our driver, Peikalo, made the tour very enjoyable. I learned tons about Hawaiian history and culture, which I loved.
We saw so much that we wouldnt have been able to do without hiring a car. Great tour.
This is the best way to know about the Island, we took the tour the next day we arrived to Oahu, and never regreted, was a wise decision, from that we could select where to go as a day trip..... Mr. and Mrs Santana
It was wonderful. Especially the bus driver. If we had to do it over I would definitely do this tour again. Beautiful scenery and just a great tour. Thanks!!!!!
I love the tour! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the island and learn the rich history .The bus driver was very informative and funny .
We really enjoyed the tour of the island. It was a full day and covered most of the non-city highlights of the area. We only had one spare day in Oahu and this was the perfect way to spend it. Our operator was very friendly and knew the history and facts about the sites we visited. We also had a quick visit to a Macadamia store and Coffe shop - which we really enjoyed. The highlight was the Japanese temple near the mountains - fantastic. I would highly recommend the tour.
