This is by far the best way to see and learn about the island. We'll worth the price. Remember to take notes along the way so you will know what you want to go back and do later.. Because. This is just an overview trip.

Date of trip: July 9, 2014 The Circle Island Tour and the Hawaiian Luau were both well done. However, DO NOT DO THEM AS A COMBO two reasons: 1) You are dropped off at the Luau before the Circle Island Tour is complete, missing the opportunity to see the Island's southside sights by daylight. 2) The return bus trip from...

It's nice to sit back, enjoy the scenery and let someone do the driving. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and was willing to stop when we would ask to take pictures. It's a rather lengthy trip but we'll worth it.

Our family took the Grand Circle tour during our vacation. We had a terrific time! The bus driver picked us up at our hotel right on time. We stopped for a few more passengers and headed out on a tour of the island. Our first stop was Hanauma Bay. It was beautiful! From there we went to a great local... More

From the time Mum and I were picked up, we knew we were in for a good day. Our tour guide with Polynesian Adventure Tours, Wes, was funny and had us all laughing. The stops we had were great, nothing was rushed. Although we couldn't stop at Hanauma Bay because the car park was full, that's just one of the... More

This is an all day bus tour, so be prepared for the length of time. We went with Robert's of Hawaii and their diver/guide was very entertaining and friendly. He said he was part Hawaiian and gave us lots of historical and cultural information as we rode around the island. The tour does not stop at all sites that your... More
