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 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.

We had a wonderful day with Paul. We had a very small group of 3, which was great, seemed more personal. What a great day and very informative, Paul was determined for us to find Green sea Turtles, which he found and we saw. Paul is a credit to your company! Thanks again for a wonderful tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! The Tour guide was exceptional and displayed a vast knowledge and historical overview of Hawaiian history, geography and ecology- he was exceptionally great! Despite the rain the beach stops of eastward coast of Kualoa, North Shore and Byodo-in Temple were amazing!

I really enjoyed the entire tour. Ken was outstanding as our guide and host. For a variety of reasons, the group, consisting of Texans, Kansans, Pennsylvanians,Albertans, French and Australians developed a unique camaraderie. The shrimp lunch was deeelish Fun time.

Great way to see most of Oahu. Ken took us on the tour, and was full of information and laughs! We were lucky and got to see 3 turtles on the beach, with many more swimming in the sea. Highly recommended for a way to get out of the city and see what the rest of Oahu was like.

This tour was fantastic. It gets you out of the city and into the beautiful outskirts of the beautiful island. Enjoyed a lovely lunch and the tour guide Ken was very generous with his time and explanation of history and culture of this magnificent piece of paradise.

This was an excellent tour with a super Tourguide Ken who was so knowledgeable and interested in all on his tour bus! The tour takes in trip to Buddhist Temple, scenic beaches where turtles frequent, lunch at Shrimp farm and Dole Plantation - fab ice cream.

This tour is similar to the Waimea Waterfalls tour as it takes you from Honolulu to the North Shore. You will pass scenic views along the coast, tour the lovely grounds at the Buddhist temple and stop at Fumi's for a delicious shrimp lunch. The only difference is you don't get to visit Waimea Falls in this tour. Both Circle Island Adventure tours end with a visit to the Dole Plantation where you can try their soft serve pineapple ice cream.

Our guide, Mandy, was very knowledgeable, an excellent driver and I would recommend this tour highly. Lunch, delicious terriaki shrimp. Got to see green turtles and a pregnant seal on the beach.

I didn't get to see any turtles--the surf was high enough that day that they weren't in their usual places, and I couldn't get down to the one place they were visible, but my husband did--but we saw a monk seal sleeping on the beach. Our driver was well read and informative, and being in a fairly small group was nice.

Brian Doyle Tour Guide was brilliant, very knowledgable, should have done the tour earlier on in the holiday

It's safe to say that going on this tour was the best decision I made while in Oahu. After a few days trapped in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, this tour was the perfect way to get out and see 2/3 of the island. I'd recommend going on this tour one of your first few days in Oahu, because I know that I walked away wanting to go back and visit a few of the beaches we saw. Our tour guide, Mandy, was incredibly smart and helpful. She knew everything there was to know about ornithology, the vegetation, and endemic species. I'm not typically interested in those types of things, but while your driving through the gorgeous mountain ranges and past the beautiful beaches, the information is very useful and enhances your appreciation for your surroundings.

This was a great tour! Our guide Bethany did an excellent job showing us the the sites and some of the history of the island. We stopped to watch a surfing competition. Also stopped to look at a couple of turtles that were up on the beach. We also enjoyed the lunch.

We had the wonderful experience of seeing Honey girl the monk seal sunbathing on the beach. Our guide was very informative and funny. The journey wasn't too long.

WOW !
We had arrived earlier in the am hours after a long flight from the East Coast. We were picked up around 11 am and spent the next 7 hours visiting the western coast line the wet side of Oahu. The tour guide was informative, funny, knew all the right spots for pictures. Overall, great value for the money spent.

Lovely tour and very friendly and informative guide who was flexible with the group given we had a small group. Highly recommend if you're wanting to get to the north shore without all the fuss of doing it yourself.

We loved this tour, covered a number of different places which were all good.
Our tour guide was fantastic - she had a very good knowledge of not only all the places we saw but of Hawaii in general.
She was very informative and educational and not at all boring.
There was a good amount of time spent at each stop.
The bus was very comfortable and the small group was great.
Would definitely highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing a few different places and covering a large percentage of Oahu.
We were very happy we chose to do this tour.
