The Grand Circle Island Tour covered a lot of ground. Our driver was very nice and very informative. We made several stops for beautiful pictorial views and stopped for lunch (on your own) at Kualoa Ranch which in itself is very cool and has quite a history. We also made a stop for a kona coffee and macadamia nut samples.... More

We really enjoyed this tour mainly because of the tour guides knowledge and presentation of all things Hawaiian. He reviewed history, flora, fauna, celebrities, economy, a little politics, religion, the Hawaiian language, surfing, local laws, etc. He gave each of us a map and showed us where we were periodically, which helped. He picked us up at our hotel by... More

Stunning views of the ocean, as well as breathtaking scenery of the mountains. Shout out to our tour guide Cousin Brandon who kept the bus entertained with... More

My husband and I enjoyed our day tour to some of the best places in Oahu, outside Honolulu. Views are breathtaking and our driver/guide, Dwight, is both informative and funny. Never a dull moment.

Do not book a tour through this company, it was nothing but an unprofessional nightmare! I picked up their brochure from a travel agent stand at the Honolulu markets and after talking to the agent for a while it sounded like a great tour for a fairly reasonable price so I checked the tour out online a bit more and...

This gave us a great overview of the island. Showed us some of the prettiest lookout points on the north shore. We saw whales, sea turtles and some of the Biggest waves. The Temple was awesome. Dole Planation was very neat. I was very happy we did this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did an incredible job. Oahu... More

We wanted to complete our trip to O'ahu by taking the Circle Tour. We were excited about the tour and the way it was sold - getting to see the best lookouts, taking a tram ride of a ranch, getting to the North Shore - thumbs up and so we paid what we felt was a pricey ticket fee and... More
