This tour was really amazing and best tour I had in my life. The tour guy was really really friendly and very kind. He love what he do so he is really great
It was a great tour and loved all the stops we made. We learned alot about the island and its history from our guide, Dennis. He did a great job.
Absolutely fantastic!! The drivers are very informative. Highly recommend to all visiting The island.
If you would like to see a number of interesting places on Ohau, this is a great tour to take. There are 11 different places you stop at to see, so you won't be just sitting on a bus all day. There are plenty of opportunities to swim, purchase food, take pictures, and use restrooms.
Our tour guide, Dennis, was prompt, friendly and accommodating to all guests. He was very knowledgeable about the island and shared plenty of interesting historical facts, stories and laughs. Dennis was always happy to answer any questions and he made sure we stayed on schedule.
Our tour was 10 hours long. A small shuttle picked us up less than a block from our hotel most pick up spots are directly in front of your hotel from my understanding. Dennis was always checking to make sure we were all comfortable with the air conditioning.
Lunch was included on the venture, but you were also allowed to bring your own food on the shuttle for snacking. Many of the stops had fresh fruits and such for sale. Dennis also made sure to point out where the bathrooms were at the stops that had them most stops did.
This tour gave us a different perspective of the island. The places Dennis took us to are all accessible with paid admission and are able to visit by public bus transportation. I recommend taking this tour early in your vacation so you can decide if you'd like to spend a day at one or more of the stops.
Our tour guide Paolo made this tour a truly special experience. We saw and experienced so many wonderful things - awesome tour!
We really enjoyed everything on this tour. Our tour guide Sue was Outstanding in explaining all the details on each site. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was simply outstanding. We got an opportunity to see so many places which were breathtaking. Our tour guide Nancy was absolutely fantastic! She has a great sense of humor and was very informative about the locations, history of Hawaii and is just an incredible person! Thank you, Nancy!
This tour was great! The tour guide, John, was very interesting (and very loud) and knew his history of the island of Oahu. He also took us by some of the locations where Hawaii Five-O was filming! I loved Waimea Valley and the waterfall! I was very impressed with this tour and would recommend this tour for everyone.
We covered a lot of ground. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. I had a delightful day and have spotted many places I hope to return in the future on trips to Oahu.
Great tour guide he really knew the Island well and the history. The weather didn't cooperate and there are some areas that fill up fast so we couldn't go in, but there are so many places that it didn't matter.
This tour was wonderful, and made unforgettable by the rich commentary of our guide Keith (or Kevin as he likes to be known ;) ). Keith is a wikipedia of knowledge on Hawaii and very open to chatting to us privately about the islands while we were at different stops. It was great to be on a small bus with only 24 passengers - a much more intimate experience than a big tour. We had long stops at several places so got to see parts of Oahu in detail. Please if you take this tour be courteous to your fellow passengers and be promptly back to the bus at the time your guide specifies as you delay the tour if you are not.
Make sure you take cash for the scrumptious fruit stand you will pass early in the tour.
The secret island lunch stop was amazing and one of the highlights of the tour. Be sure to be ready with your camera at this spot for the jaw-dropping view of the mountain range you will get looking back from the island.
Highly recommended, especially if you are choosing between a larger tour and this one spend the extra and treat yourself to a more personalised experience.
It was wonderful. Our bus driver was from the Island and we learnt a lot from her. It was everything they said it would be. We were only in Hawaii for a week and did not rent a car, so this was a great way to see the Island. I did a lot of research on who to go with before I booked . I very highly recommend this company. Everything was on time . No problems at all. It was a small bus. (maybe 20 people). So very personal.
The whole day was excellent. josh our tour guide picked us up on time and explained what we could expect throughout the day. The waterfall was beautiful. The beaches spectacular. I am convinced the Hawaiians have handed Waikiki over to the tourists and keep the good beaches a guarded secret....can't blame them as they are spectacular.
Fantastic Tour! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the island, it's history and legends. He had a great personality and kept us entertained for the entire day.
Fantastic tour. The tour guide was enthusiastic and provided interesting details and stories. He was pleasant and nice. The tour went so many places and in most we had enough time for it to be meaningful. Love it!!!!
Our guide was wonderful- obviously loves her job and knows her stuff. Made it fun, looked out for all of us and kept things moving, not always an easy thing to do. Would recommend this tour.
Great tour of this beautiful island .The tour guide John was amusing and very informative.Its a long day as there so much see but we covered as much as possible with lots of stops on the way for photos etc.Shame there was no show with the turtles but the scenery was outstanding.My wife and I even had a paddle in the Waimea Falls.Fantastic.
Over all, the tour was worth doing. Some departures from the description: there was no boat ride to a secluded beach for a local lunch. The hike through Waimea Valley turned out to be a walk up an asphalt-paved path. The tour was fast-paced, and the guide even managed to get an extra stop at a coffee farm in, since we were ahead of schedule in the morning. With so many stops, we usually had about 15 minutes at a given location though there were exceptions. The guide provided interesting information along the way. The temple was fabulous it and Waimea Valley were highlights for me.
The tour guide was wonderful and well informed. We saw many sights in one day that I would not have seen otherwise. Two quibbles: I was told that the tour would return by 5:30, but it did not return to the hotel until 7:30. I had another meeting that began at 6:30. Second, the lunch at the ranch was just average, and the trip to the secret lake was a lot of hype. I felt that too much time was spent there.
