Tour ok. But not told either by the tour people or the bus driver that no large buses are allowed to stop at the beach where the turtles are.
Also the time at the Dole plantation is very short. Just enough time to get a pineapple smoothie.
Thus if want to go to the turtle beach or Dole look at another tour
From start to finish this tour was excellent. Brandon our tour guide was awesome! Full day of seeing so much of what Hawaii has to offer and it gives you a great perspective of this beautiful island. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Hawaii.
Enjoyed the day. As we were only in Honolulu for a few days it was a great way to see as much as we did. Had a great tour guide. A little disappointed we didn't get to see more of Diamond Head. Would recommend it
This was a good overview of the island. Our driver, Dwight, was well organised, upbeat and fun. He made sure that time was managed well so we had extra time at the Dole plantation. As usual on these sorts of tours, we would have preferred longer at some places Dole and the Macadamia farm and not to have bothered with others coral shop.
I was very excited when Angel booked our tour. She was wonderful! The tour however, was a disappointment. The Dole plantation was last and we missed the pineapple demo and there was not enough time to ride the train. The lunch was good at the ranch but we stopped at some store in the beginning of the tour and it was a waste of time. The driver kept snorting his nose on the microphone and it was pretty gross. We did stop at a few look out areas and they were nice. Overall the tour was just ok. I would not recommend this tour there must be better options.
We had a great tour lead by Ted on Bus 235. He did a great job of entertaining, teaching and keeping us informed. He managed to rearrange our trip due to traffic issues, which kept us on time and allowed us to see what we were supposed to. I would have liked at least one stop on the North Shore for some photos and the weather did not cooperate at the blow hole but everything else was great. The only improvements might be smaller buses to make it easier to get in and out of places, plus cut down on the difficulty of herding cats. It seems like the same people always stayed too long....
