This was the best way to see as much as we could see in one day. Going to Pearl Harbor first was a great choice. Ernie, our guide, was very informative and a jokester as well. All of the places we visited were good choices, except for the Dole Plantation, which was a gift shop only, with very poor service. I would recommend this trip if your time is limited and you want an overview of the island.

If you've only got 1 day in Oahu for exploring, I'd highly recommend this tour! Really good amount of time at Pearl Harbor I wasn't sure if they would allow enough time to walk through all the exhibits, but definitely did. Seeing the sights around the Island was great, we had been to Oahu before and had been around the Island but saw some special spots that we would otherwise not have gone to.. Big thumbs up for the Dole Plantation and Pineapple Whip softserve, Nuuanu Pali Lookout and Kualoa Ranch. Also to our bus driver and guide 'Cousin Smith' :-
we had a wonderful tour. our guide and bus driver,Ed, was very knowledgeable with a sense of humour. He changed the route around slightly to ensure we had plenty of time at all our stops and included a few extras.My husband later went back and did an extra tour of Pearl Harbour. Would recommend to others. Also good we did before we left as travelled in high season ans saved some money before leaving
The tour run by Polynesian Adventure Tours was excellent! Our driver/guide Ernie was very knowledgable native Hawaiian with academic training in Hawaiian culture and history and with a good sense of humor! He was a safe driver and all the stops and photo ops were well chosen. A relaxed, but efficient pace.
Our tour guide Peter was friendly, informative, and extremely educated. He made the entire day an amazing experience. I would recommend this tour, especially if Peter was the guide, over and over again.
We loved the bus tour. It was very well done. We were able to see the whole island
Garfield, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Very family friendly
We had a wonderful day on this tour. It was a full day of activities, taking in all the great sights and land marks. Peter our driver was great full of information, he was funny professional and l cannot praise him enough. Great trip.
This was a great tour and tour guide. We saw a lot and learned about the island.
Ed was our driver/tour guide and he was the best. Very knowledgable, made it fun, and excellent driver. Would highly recommend this tour!
Our tour guide was Ernie. He gave a lot of history and stories...some he made up for our or his entertainment. We enjoyed the whole day. When back in Hawaii again this is the only tour we will use. Highly recommended! Mike and Susan Judd, Wentworth, NH
The tour guy driver, Keao Low has done a wonderful job today. He made the whole trip fun and enjoyable! We love him so much!
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of pearl harbour and island tour. Our driver Ernie was excellent with his knowledge ' and very informative and helpful. Well worth doing to get a good idea of the island landmarks. Had a great day. Thanks from Gail and Peter .

This is a fantastic tour! Leo our guide was very informative and funny! Although there was a bit of traffic for the second half of the trip you would never of known it. Leo kept your attention the whole time. The Nu'uanu Pali lookout was amazing! We went to Pearl Harbor on Memorial Day it was very emotional It was amazing! Words cannot explain. The pineapple tour wasn't a tour at all really. It was mainly shopping but worth the stop if you try the pineapple whip! The ranch was another shopping stop, but we did have lunch there it was good. They did have horses there that you could ride for a fee. The Byodo-in Temple was beautiful and very surreal. Great photo ops!

This is a great way to see the island and do Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor is very moving and most days they have a Survivor who you can talk to. Have a look at other exhibitions there too and the submarine, it's all really interesting and informative.
The Circle Island Day trip takes you to some beautiful places. The guide we had, Robbie, was very funny and informative. The contract between Honolulu and the Windward side is quite staggering when you experience it. The temple and the ranch were stunning locations. On the trip around the North Shore we also got to see a turtle on the sand.
This trip covered everything we wanted to see in a short time and I'd recommend this trip to anyone.
I have looked forward to visiting the Arizona for years and finally doing it was a moving experience - one I will long remember.
A must do if short on time and you want to do the main highlights. Peter our driver and guide was very funny and informative. Very well organised by National Parks and Army, very moving tribute.
