We took the "Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure" tour with Discover Hawaii Tours in March. Our guide, John B was exceptional. He kept us entertained for almost 10 hours, while driving us around the island in a mini-bus, stopping at many places and beaches along the way. His knowledge of the island's history, culture, legends and current affairs was awesome... More

Taking part in the tour garunteed us a ticket for the memorial which is first come first served. However... the day was entirely too rushed. There wasn't enough time given to explore all of the museums, the Memorial, and USS Missouri. In my opinion - the time the driver took showing everyone the birthplace, school, and such of the president... More

Unfortunately we did not complete the tour as described. We did not get onto the boat to the Arizona as the navy called off trip due to weather. What was unfortunate our Discover Hawaii driver did not verify that all of his passengers for the 11 am movie showing were on the boat to the Arizona immediately after the movie... More

Little late in this review!! We took our tour for Pearl Harbor with Discover Hawaii. Our Tour guide was "Cousin Kevin" He made all the downtown time of traveling to and from hotel comical. He really knew the area and we got a nice history lesson on the tour! Would recommend them for this tour :)

This trip was a wonderful day trip. Our driver Matt was very knowledgeable and friendly. On this trip we were able to see every beach of the island as well as the Arizona memorial and Dole plantation. Dole was a brief stop but it was enough time to get a pineapple whip and walk around the shops and the small... More

Had enough time to see what we wanted to see at Pearl Harbor. Best no... More

We found the tour exciting, informative, and especially wonderful because of our tour guide and driver "Jr.". Nothing was too hard for him, he was very tuned in to the group and our comfort, he knew an enormous amount about the history, politics, and environment of Maui. And he had a great sense of humour and he was a great... More
