We had a superb time taking the Circle Island Eco Adventure Tour with our tour guide John Bolay. He was extremely friendly, and so knowledgeable that we all thought he was a native Hawaiian rather than living here for just three years. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Honolulu. The only thing I would suggest is that you... More

We started with a little problem: 7 in our party, but placed on 2 different buses: got it sorted with a phone call to base, and a swap at the first stop, Dole Pineapple Plantation, but not before our initial guide, Paolo, told everyone he didn’t usually like to stop there and was only going because he had to get...

We had to get up super early for this tour (pick up at 6.05am) we weren't actually picked up until 6.35 which was a bit annoying. Our bus driver took great pains to say that he wasn't feeling well, and he had personal problems that he was dealing with, so he was trying to find a replacement driver. We arrived... More

We went on the Pearl Harbor experience tour with Discover Hawaii tours. Our guide Ric was great and informative. He kept our group on track, considering attractions were being closed early due to a possible hurricane looming nearby. He got us everywhere we were planning on going. His guide through downtown Honlolulu was terrific also.

Family of 3 adults and 2 x 11yr old children. We were picked up, on time from our Waikiki hotel, by Kona our tour guide and whisked away to Pearl Harbor with Kona telling us all about the sights and history of Hawaii along the way. We were given plenty of time to look around the Bowfin and the museum... More

My family flew in from Maui to go on this tour. We had quite a bit of waiting for others to also arrive at the airport. We were then late getting to Pearl Harbor and the tour had already started. We got rushed through the Bowfin sub, had about 15 mins to look over the rest of the entire site... More

We did the Pearl Harbor/Dole Plantation/Polynesian Center tour with Tavita. He was very funny, entertaining, and extremely knowledgeable. A few tips for families: there is NO time for breakfast, so bring food with you. We got up at 4:15 am to make it to the Kona airport for check in at 5:00 and to Oahu by 8:30. We had minutes... More

Our driver Joey had excellent local knowledge & we certainly learnt a lot about Hawaii but he constantly talked about his wife throughout the entire day & also mentioned he had a run in with the law during his younger years. But what was extremely inappropriate was his constant sexual innuendos which he obviously thought was humorous but was inappropriate!... More

We took the Hawaii Volcano National park tour. Short wait at the airport, the guide had to circle around because our flight was a bit late, and then dropped off at a candy place while he had to pick up a couple more people. The tour included the street with Banyan trees planted by famous people and a japanese garden... More
