Fantastic Day
Moria_D, Jul 2022
My husband, mother-in-law, and 2 9 year olds had a incredible day! Mike and Uncle Harry we're beyond fantastic!! We learned a lot, laughed a lot, ate well, experienced island weather, snorkeled, and picked up great tips for future days.

Blanca_Q, Jul 2022
Our first trip to Hawaii it was beautiful. Enjoyed the tour and had a great time. Guide Nevin was awesome and knowledgeable.
Pamela_J, Jul 2022
Corey was the best guide. Overall great day. We saw turtles while snorkeling so primarily goal achieved. Mini bus was clean and comfortable. Wish the tour could have a stop in Haleiwa (happy to have a slightly longer day!). Great day!
Family fun activity

Circle island tour
Angelia_N, Jul 2022
Kurt was tour guide and he tried to give us the best experience. I would of liked more time at places like dole plantation. The driver was the real hero , he was quiet but followed Kurt's instructions to keep us on schedule.
Awesome trip
Jennifer_G, Jun 2022
Loved the trip with Nevin. He’s very funny and gave some great tips for traveling around Oahu. Snorkeling was great perfect amount of time.
General feedback
James_B, May 2022
Guide was great but have a few suggestions. Need a bathroom break after blow hole, stopping at fruit stand was unnecessary, would have rather gone to macadamia farm rather than the store just to buy some -didn't learn anything about nuts there, not enough time at dole - only 30 min to shop unable t o actually look around.

mabel_b, Apr 2022
This has to be the best tour we have ever experienced in Hawaii. Kurt our tour guy made us feel like family and guide us the right way throughout the whole tour. If you have only one your to do in Hawaii I highly recommend you pick this as your must do tour in Hawaii. Thank you we had a great time and will definitely recommend this to all of our friends and family.
Fun tour around island.

Take this tour first when you get to Honolulu. It really helps you find great beaches. That’s all I have to say.

Great tour, wish the Dole Plantation was a longer stop! Cory was a fantastic guide and a lot of fun! Next time will plan it for earlier in our vacation so we could use Cory’s restaurant tips!

A wonderful day!
Kristin_H, Feb 2022
I can’t say enough good about this tour! We were lucky enough to have Mike as our guide and Wilbur as our driver. I was worried the number of stops would feel rushed but it was wonderful! We even got a few extras and the best poke EVER! Mike was super knowledgeable and accommodating. We got extra beach time which was such a treat thanks to him ordering lunch ahead at the delicious shrimp stop. (Get the butter garlic!!) The tour size was perfect, we had 20. So glad to not be on a mega bus with 65! There were 2 little kids, maybe 3 and 5 on our tour and it was too long a day for them and the parents looked exhausted trying to keep them quiet. My 10 year old loved every min. Pick up and drop off were smooth and convenient. You will not be disappointed with this tour. So glad we did it early on our first trip to Hawaii.

Keri_J, Jan 2022
Corey was very knowledgeable and answered all of our very electic questions ranging from where to find turtles when the waves were too big to snorkel to how the lava formed the tubes and history of Hawaii. He was also very accommodating to any of our needs and tolerated even the most annoying of my family. He was awesome.
Fantastic tour

Great Tour!!! Worth the money!!!
laura_c, Jan 2022
This tour was perfect my only regret was I didn’t do it on day one! Our guide Justin was amazing he got ahead of all the other tour buses so we never had to wait in line for anything, he was very informative & knew a lot of history about the island and the culture. He gave us so many great ideas on less crowded beaches and other beautiful places to see here in Honolulu. I highly recommend this to anyone especially if you can get Justin as your guide.
Good Tour
