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.
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.
Excellent, but the pick up was late and we didn't receive any notice regarding this matter, so we stress about that.
We enjoyed our island tour. Jorge, our driver/guide was well-informed and entertaining. We saw some beautiful sights and gained a greater appreciation of the history of the islands.
Great stops, not too long driving times in between stops which was great. Highlights were Waimea Valley hike, Hanauma Bay and Pali Lookout.
Great tour!! Our tour guide Kevin was very good had lots of stuff to tell us about where we were going. We wouldn't have been able to see as much as we did if we didn't take this tour. The waterfall was great we only had 20 mins for swimming but it was still a lot of time!
Good all-rounder but don't get excited about the hike - it's a 30-min round trip up a paved path which can be done in flip flops. A good way to see the island's sights though.
A pleasant day with numerous interesting stops. Waimea Valley waterfall was not all that impressive compared to others we have seen and swimming with life jackets and lifeguards nearby took away from the overall atmosphere - but the gardens were quite nice. Enjoyed a basic lunch on the beach at Secret Island. Our guide was friendly but we were very disappointed that she told us and others (a number of times ) at the first pick up stop to sit on the wrong side of the bus for the best views of the coastline - and it was the beaches and coastline we particularly wanted to see. The bus filled and we were left sitting on the inland side of the bus with few glimpses of sea and coastline. Apart from that the day went well and we were happy we did this tour. If you want coastal views sit on the driver's side of the bus if travelling to the North Shore beaches first.
This tour was not as advertised. In fact I will be asking for a rebate on the charges. The tour did not go to places that were listed but instead wasted time at commerical enterprises like Dole pineapple and the nut factory. Missed stops like turtle bay and lighthouse. Sorely disappointed.
