Travelled the 120 miles around the whole island of Oahu and saw some magnificent beaches, giant mountains and visited a nut factory and also the Dole plantation, as well as lunch fresh from the sea at a lunch cart. It was in a small bus which meant not as much time was wasted getting on and of the bus. The... More

The tour of the Big Island was awesome. Sam was very entertaining and very knowledgeable. The only problem was that we didn't seem to have enough time at the tour sites. It felt very rushed. I know we had a lot of places to visit, but there was just not enough time. We would have liked to have more time... More

We had Cousin Dave drive us on our tour...he made the tour, no doubt!! He had all sorts of hints & special ways to do things on Oahu. He made us laugh & giggle all day. I would only do this tour if Cousin Dave could do it again... Long day if you have a boring tour guide!!

Had the pleasure of doing this trip with Cousin Brandon and really enjoyed it. Lots of great views and locations around Oahu, including one that the big tour buses couldn't get to (we managed to get in as we were in a smaller bus). Cousin Brandon gave us a great insight into Oahu and the local history. A stop at... More

We had cousin Ted take us around the island on this tour. He was both informative and entertaining (him singing the hang loose song was definitely a highlight). The tour itself begins in Waikiki, and then proceeds and makes stops at Hanauma Bay (which unfortunately was closed that day), blow hole, Byodo-in temple, Macadamia plantation, Kualoa Ranch, and the Dole...

This tour is a bus tour of almost the entire island of Oahu, so if that is what you want to see and you don't want to drive then it is great. The sights in the morning were excellent, lots of scenic views, only two commercial stops, however the trip out to the Dole plantation is just not worth it,... More

Cousin Ted did an excellent job of keeping everyone involved in the trip. He gave history, song and jokes. He made the trip great. Some of the stops were too long while others were not long enough. Over all it was great.

We started off this tour at Pearl Harbour (after all of the hotel pickups). Then we progressed on to the actual Circle part of the tour and we had a great tour guide/bus driver, Ben. It was treat to get out of the city part of the island and we had the most fantastic day. Well worth the money.
