This tour is very good especially if you want to see multiple places in one day. The guide Ernie was very knowledgeable and also funny

Leo C was our tour guide well what an asset he is to his employer. Funny witty but most of all extremely knowledgable about the local area. This is a trip not to be missed. It's a long day but well worth it - a great way to see the island in a short period of time. Thank you LEO C for a fun day out!

we really enjoyed this tour. We had one day in Honolulu and we're glad we spent it this way. Of course we saw Pearl Harbor, but we also saw parts of Oahu that are more natural and beautiful. The surfing beaches and lookouts were gorgeous. The food at the Polynesian Cultural Center was good. The stops at the Dole plantation and nut shop were fun. The temple was lovely and soothing. Our driver, Garfield, was funny, entertaining and very knowledgable. We met nice visitors from all over the world. Very fun day.

Great guide Mr Ed no not the horse was very knowledgeable and answered all question with a fantastic sense of humor. Unfortunately, because of the wind the Navy cancelled the ferry trips to the USS Arizona.

Would have loved to stay at the Arizona memorial a little longer. But I do understand there were a bus full of people wanting to see more of the island. Tour guide was great! I highly recommend this tour.

Very Informative Trip. Wish could have stayed longer at the USS Arizona Memorial to wholly experience the unique serenity and solemness.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Eric our guide was exceptional, friendly and very knowledgeable. It was obvious he was trying to do that little bit extra for his customers. The tour itself was well worth while and because we had a smaller group with a smaller bus we got to see the highlight - Pali lookout. Spectacular. Thanks Eric!

Enjoyed it. Leo C was generous with his local knowledge. Pearl Harbour was well worth it as well as the North Shore and the lookouts. Dole Plantation was a sea of yellow in overdrive and not so great.
