Our trip to the North Shore was great. Our guide, Nett, was wonderful and kept us on schedule. I love how Viator picks us up on time. The only problem was the huge waves or lack thereof. There weren't any due to the season. Of course, this is no fault of the guide or Viator. This was my 3rd tour with Viator and I will definitely book with them again.
This was an outstanding tour! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable of the area and provided great information that we would otherwise not have known.
The only negative we have is that we would have liked to have been able to stop in some of the small towns on the north shore to look around a
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip - very informative young lady led the trip and at the end recommended a restaurant for me " The raging crab" which was a unique experience for me. overall a very worthwhile trip
Lovely afternoon trip via a beautiful temple, some good beaches, we did see a turtle and home via the dole plantation for some delicious pineapple ice cream. None of the stops too long and all operated very smoothly.
Excellent tour, highly recommend. Get to see all the highlights of the northshore without the hassle of driving yourself.
This was a fantastic tour and excellent value. Our guide, Jeanette, was very knowledgeable and made the afternoon fun and interesting. We saw so much of the island.
Dante was a fantastic guide with lots of insight and humour as we travelled around. A really great way to see the mountains and Oahu beyond Waikiki. The only thing that would have improved it was more time at the Dole Plantation but other than that it was our favourite tour of the trip :)
Wonderful boat ride and snorkeling. It was raining and cold, but still fun.
The spinner dolphins were great.
This was probably the best tour we had on our whole Hawaii trip and it was the cheapest too.
Our tour guide/driver was not only extremely knowledgeable but had a great sense of humor too! Our group was a mixture of all ages and a fun time was had by all. I am a travel agent and know of the best rated tours on all the islands. My husband and I rated this one of our best tours this trip.
Ronna our tour guide was fantastic. She explored many parts of the north shore and explained with detail which was great. Great company and lots of places to see. Highly recommend....
The tour was the perfect ending of our vacation. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. In a short period of time we were able to see more of the beauty of Oahu.
The tour was fantastic - we enjoyed every minute of it and our tour guide was very informative.
Very good value! Easy and leisurely tour with plenty of time at all stops. Much more than the details listed.
Excellent tour, long (6 hrs) but well worth the time. We got to see many great things and the beauty of the north shore and be maybe 5 ft away from sea turtles and eat pineapple ice cream at the Dole Plantation, and stopped for many photo ops....great tour...!
This was my favorite tour and we did this our first day on Oahu. Our tour guide was fantastic - provided the history of the island and the surrounding areas the entire time. We saw a monk seal sleeping on the sand and the sea turtles coming up from the ocean to beach themselves on the sand. The North and East side of the island has a rugged landscape with beautiful unspoiled beaches (i.e., no big hotels competing for space).
What a fantastic tour! We initially signed up for the trip to pass some time, but it became so much more. Our guide--Dante--was amazing! He was (literally) a walking encyclopedia of island knowledge, from plants to history and ancient Hawaiian lore. We (Americans) were with a group of Australians, Canadians, and two from the Netherlands, and we all had a really fun time exploring around beautiful Oahu. Dante was SO helpful and friendly--the whole tour was well worth our time and $$$. Thanks!
This was a great tour. My pick up went smoothly, however we had to go back and pick up 2 people at the first pickup stop that were late. It was all ok though as Harry, our friendly driver, said that things were still on schedule.
At each stop he would tell us how long we'd have, and even had a clock near the bus door to show the time we were to leave that stop, so that was handy.
There were about 23 of us in the air-conditioned bus and there was bottled water if you wanted it. Everyone was considerate and boarded the bus promptly when it was time to leave, so we were able to keep on track.
The last stop we went to was the Dole Plantation, which was a pleasant surprise as I wasn't expecting it. There you can peruse the gift shop, have a toilet break, and some snacks. Try the pineapple ice-cream there, its yum!
Our driver was very knowledgeable and did commentary for most of the drive. He would point out things along the way and give some history or explanation or some funny story about it.
We got back to Waikiki just after 6pm.
Overall I'd recommend this tour as it only takes half the day and you get to see Oahu's landscape and attractions. Do bring some snacks as there isn't really lots of places with food available.
