Was an interesting trip. I liked the Japanese temple and the sights of the island. I hoped to have spent more time at Dole. It was insanely crowded there when we arrived. There was no time to get a pineapple treat since the lines were so insane. I wished it would have been planned so that it was less crowded there. We had lunch at a ranch which was ok as well. Driver was knowledgeable. Maybe a bit too chatty at times. He was nice. We had a good time. Pearl Harbor was interesting

This tour included hidden extras that were not advertised. Pearl Harbour was amazing. My only complaint would be that the time spent here was definitely not long enough. This part of the tour was extremely rushed and you did not have spare time to look around at everything. We made several stops - at a lookout with breathtaking views, macadamia nut factory free samples, the most beautiful gardens inside the valley of the temples memorial park, kualoa ranch for lunch stop - do not recommend the buffet as it wasn't the greatest food for the price - do have a snack bar, Dole plantation try the pineapple ice-cream small serve only very sweet, and turtle bay. Our expert driver was Frank. Our tour guide was Ed an older gentleman with expert knowledge, personality and a great sense of humour. This day out was fabulous and I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone.

Pearl Harbor is a must see when on Oahu. Very moving memorial. Circle Island tour is a long day but there are plenty of stops and you get a good feel of the island.
