This tour was a good way to see the North Shore of the island without having to rent a car. Our driver and guide Paul was very friendly and took good care of the group, and he also shared his extensive knowledge about the history of the island throughout the day. Also, the shrimp lunch was delicious.

Highly recommend this tour. Great way to see and circle the island. Marissa, our guide, was fantastic. She was very personable, informative, and helpful.
Gave us a history of the island as well as tips on current activities, events and other places to follow up on.

Just the best way to capture Oahu in one day. Paul, our guide, was so enthusiastic and friendly. He was tireless in sharing his knowledge of the island and its history. His love of Hawaii was infectious!

Fabulous tour, fabulous tour guide. We started on time, and Paul I think! was personable, friendly, full of information and silly jokes that had us laughing. He managed the tour well, keeping us on track without hurrying us, and was super clear about expectations. The temple was lovely and the lunch tasty. We did see sea turtles beached, and he was sure to make sure we kept the appropriate distance to protect these animals. We actually caught a surf competition on the North Shore, which was a bonus and super interesting. If I could give 4.5, I would, but only because we got to the Dole Plantation so late in the day that we couldn't tour the gardens or take the train. We did see a pineapple demonstration which taught me a few things about choosing a pineapple, and enjoyed a delicious pineapple whip, so it was still worth it.

A great tour. Learnt and saw so much of Oahu that we never knew about. Our driver and guide Levent was so knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch at the shrimp farm was so delicious. You must try the garlic shrimp.A highly recommended tour.

The guide/driver,bus and sights were great. However the time at each stop was inadequate to enjoy the sites. Recommend less stops with more time touring. The visit to the plantation was a total waste just a visit to the gift shop.

The North Shore is beautiful and you feel like you're getting a taste of the real Oahu, and a respite from the hub of tourist traps back in Honolulu. Lovent was an excellent tour guide, prepared to cover a number of subjects but also adept at addressing the random questions of this group of first-timers to Hawaii. His descriptions of the island's history, ecology, and challenges were very honest and enlightening. The tour moved at a relaxed pace and is one of the best that I've taken in any locale.
