Despite the blatantly obvious visits to favorite tourist shops, this overall was a good tour lead by an experienced and knowledgeable guide (Keao Low?). Pickup at all the hotels takes awhile and we were unfortunate enough to be among the first to be picked up. On the positive side of things, that gives you the best selection for seating and... More

We were in Oahu, over Easter week. We signed up to do the North shore tour. I have to say, it was worth every penny. Our tour guide cousin Kevin, was part of what made it, even more fun. He was hysterical, informative, and just a phenomenal person. Even though most of the stops are short, you can see it... More

We loved this tour as we got to visit so much of the island and we learned a lot. We went on quite a few tours and this was one of our favorites. Our driver took us from one beautiful place to another.

This was a great tour. Picking up close to our hotel and stopping at most of the major sights on Oahu. Our driver, Ted, brought a great deal of knowledge and humor to our day both of which were much appreciated. The price was worth it to us to sit back and enjoy the ride and info from our guide....

This was our first trip to Hawaii for my birthday. It was such a memorable experience. We had it arranged by Roberts Hawaii. The tour guide (Pablo) is professional and very informative. Bring a nice camera. Highly recommended.

Recently returned from a trip to Hawaii where we undertook the Grand Circle Island tour on Oahu conducted by the Roberts Hawaii company. The tour was magnificent in itself but made even more special by our driver/tour guide, Felix. The man has an encyclopedic knowledge of his island and his commentary was peppered with humour and personality. To top it... More

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
