Was everything we hoped for...A very knowledgeable tour bus driver (Mike from Minnesota) who knows a lot about Hawaii including the language and who explained all the places along the way, good food at the restaurant, a very comfortable bus, safe, and worth the cost.

Very good, very informative. Lovely guide with beautiful scenery. Wished I could have done it again - there's more to Oahu than just Honolulu. Great tour.
our driver and guide; Wes was very informative and kept us entertained the entire trip!
We thoroughly enjoyed the bus tour.....Ben was very informative and quite entertaining. The tour was exactly what we had hoped for....lots to see and do.....the excursions were fun too.....
There was a difficult passenger on the bus tour and was very demanding. Ben was very patient and kind with this lady....we were very impressed by him.
We would certainly recommend the bus tour and would go again in a heart beat.

My husband and I had limited time to see the island so this tour was a great way to see what the island had to offer and to plan those spots we wanted to revisit. Great commentary and plenty of rest stops!
Wow. What a tour. Many thanks to Wes our driver and guide for making the day fantastic. Not only was he knowledgable but extremely funny.
enjoyed the tour, driver/guide excellent. stop at RANCH, tour not needed. Only stop for lunch.
This trip gives such a worthwhile perspective about the island and has a perfect balance of interesting stops. It was the first time my husband had been to Oahu and he liked getting his bearings by doing thi trip. We had a fun driver too, with good knowledge and he was easy to understand. Wendy
Everyone should take this tour. This is far better than renting a car and driving around the island and missing 40 percent of what you set out to see.
we stopped for lunch at the Kulia Ranch and had good photo stops.at beaches,a lovely temple complex etc.It was a good way to see most of the island if you had limited time
Ten out of ten thanks! The bus was excellent. Modern and comfortable. Our driver Ed (Just Ed :) ) made the trip really interesting and informative. Great sense of humour. He must have been exhausted at the end of the day. If anyone is thinking of doing this trip, we highly recommend it. Much better than driving yourself. We learned so much about the island, the Hawaiian history, pronunciation of Hawaiian names, any special happenings. You name it, Ed covered it. He really was awesome. We did this trip on our third day and so glad we did.
Garfield was the greatest GED for the island tour that I could have ever hoped for! Went in not knowing what to expect came out amazed.
Wonderful day taking in the sights. And what beautiful sights they were!
Great tour, our driver and guide Dwight was very knowledgable and clearly knew the island very well. Pick-up was in time and our minibus was nice and clean. Windows often get dirty on these kind of trips but this was no issue on this one which we found a great plus. Stops are frequent and nice. Great tour to see the whole island in one day and 'prospect' sites for later visits. Would highly recommend it and once again thumbs up for Cousin Dwight.
The guide was great. VERY entertaining and informative. We had a great time!
Garfield was an incredible historian of the islands history and plant/animal life. He was a non-stop encyclopedia of great information to keep the tour very interesting. This was a GREAT value and certainly gave you an overall tour of Oahu. Highly recommended tour.
Our tour was great because of our tour guide Leo C. He kept us entertained the whole time. He seemed to know everything about the island. The only thing I would cut out is the tram ride at the ranch. My 12 year old daughter also went with us, and she had a wonderful time also. Still talking about the tour. My mother especially loved it and enjoyed Leo too.
Fantastic experience .Guide was very good, lots of local knowledge and was also funny and friendly .I would do this tour again. Worth doing
Fantastic tour! Enough time spent at each of the stops and tour guide (Garfield) was awesome! We bumped into him at Pearl Harbor and he remembered us and was still so nice. The circle island tour is a great way to see Oahu - the atmosphere was nice, bus was clean, we could use the restrooms, eat on the bus, etc. Lastly, Garfield was very flexible and made sure we saw everything that was on our itinerary, even when it meant rearranging the schedule to make it to certain points at a certain time. Garfield was very informative - after traveling to Hawaii more than 25 times, Garfield still taught us something so he was awesome!
