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.

Great trip to do if you dont have lots of time. Our driver was very informative, had enough time at each stop. He added an extra stop as roads were not too busy. On time, great scenery, we got to see a turtle.

This tour was awesome! Although we were there the week of APEC and experienced a lot of delays due to traffic, we still enjoyed the tour. Our tour was moved a day, but our guide Dante (hope I spelled it right) was great! His knowledge of the island was vast and he relayed some great insider info. The North shore is just stunning, all the stops were just breath taking...and if you can make the time...the stop at the shrimp shack for an afternoon treat was out of this world! Would go on this tour again, don't pass up the opportunity to see a completely different side of Oahu!

An excellent tour and very good value for money. Our tour guide George was brilliant and very knowledgeable. We saw two huge sea turtles on the beach and the volunteers that were there at the time were happy to give us information about the turtles and the ongoing work they do to protect the endangered species. We also saw the Byodo-In Temple which was beautiful and has been used as a backdrop for several tv programmes such as Hawaii 5-0 and Lost. We saw sunset beach and Turtle Bay and the Dole Pineapple Plantation which was very interesting. Well worth the money we paid and would definitely do again.

This is a fantastic trip that is well worth taking. The destinations that you stop off at are awesome. Seeing the turtles was the highlight of the trip, along with the Pipeline Beach. We all got to eat shrimp from a shack off the side of the road, which was delicious. It was was great as the stops were short and sweet, plus you got to see the whole island. The tour guide was also entertaining.

This was a great tour and the driver/guide was really good. He was so knowledgeable about the island and the places we visited. We made quite a few stops on this tour, however, there was enough time at each stop for photos, etc. I wish the van had more visibility for all passengers and I wish we could have made a stop at Matsumoto Shave Ice! Other than that it was time very well spent.

This tour of the island was absolutely brilliant, we stopped off at several points to see things and take photos but the bus drive was equally enjoyable as the guide told us lots about Hawaiian culture. As we went on a Friday he also recommended us being dropped off at the Hilton Hawaiian Village to see the fireworks, which was a great suggestion. We were unfortunate not to see turtles but it didn't make the tour any less worth it!

This tour was wonderful! Our guide, Dante, was wonderful! He was very knowlegeable about all the places we stopped and taught us a lot about the island. It would be helpful to have some information about the stops we made to take home with us. Thank you for helping making our vacation wonderful!

The tour was great, from the time we got on the bus to the time we got off the bus. The driver introduced everyone as they got on the bus, which helped create a more relaxed day. The tour took in a lot but there was plenty of time to enjoy it. We saw some lovely landscapes, beaches, mountains and farming area.
