The circle island tour was quite expensive and there is a lot of time on the bus but to be honest I would pay the money again because it was stress free and so much easier than trying to plan visiting all of the sites and route yourself. It's an easy way to see a lot of what the island... More

This day long tour introduced us to the real O'ahu, away from the crowds in Waikiki. Our expert guide, John, kept up a very informed and interesting - and often amusing - commentary throughout the day. Thank you John for a great and memorable tour.

So I'm the typical non tour guy right. However my wife and I had a few spare days in Waikiki after a business trip to the big island. We chose Waikiki because we didn't want to spend our precious time flying between the other islands. We wanted to really experience Oahu since this was our first time in Hawaii but... More

this was a big day but really worth it, recommend it. you get told about everything you go past, stop off at some great lookouts, and have a local talking about it all. this is a great day to see everything and know where you would like to see more of if you come back.

This is a one in a life time tour you must do if on the islands. You take a all day trip around the island, stop at various points around the island. We went on 2 different ones in 2 years. Stopped at different beaches, Sunset Beach where they filmed Gilligan's Island. Turtle Beach, North Shore. The best part was... More

Really value for money tour getting to see places most tourist don't go as well. Dennis Lynch was perfect as tour guide with encyclopaedic knowledge of everything. He took care of us with patience and local wisdom. Give him a raise. And we were glad Diamond Head was brief as you need half a day for this.

Our hotel concierge recommended this first, and we were glad we did it. We got the lunch at the ranch and the Dole plantation among other things. It was worthwhile but we were quite exhausted at the end of it!

The brochure was misleading (with respect to a visit to the Diamondhead lookout); the main reason we took this tour was to visit the Diamondhead lookout. The bus just drove by, not even stopping to allow photos. There was insufficient time at most of the stops. Six hours into the tour a quick look around at the other passengers, showed... More

This is truly an all day tour .I took this tour with my mom twice back in '05 and '08. I remember visiting and eating at the Dole Plantation, stopping by some random gift shops, visiting a delicious macadamia nut factory, seeing a beautiful temple and stopping by to see beaches along the way. The guides were informative and tried... More
