Our full day island tour was the highlight of our Hawaiian holiday. The coach was luxurious and our driver Ed (just plain Ed) was both entertaining and informative. Most importantly, the scenery was spectacular and breathtaking.

The tour was purchased through Fun Hawaii Travel ($35). The tour was very interesting and information. Wes the tour Guide was entertaining as he pointed out points of interest and their historical back ground. The sights we're breath taking. Mae Hong. sure to try the Dole Whip at the Dole Plantation stop.

Fortunately we didn't pay full price for these tickets. Our first stop was the lookout over Hanuma bay, for a grand total of 15 minutes. We were disappointed to see that we'd worn our swimsuits and brought our snorkel for nothing. Next stop was the blowhole, for about 10 mins. Next stop was a rest break / exorbitantly priced gift...

We got this tour supposedly free from a vendor on the street after attending a presentation by a company selling travel service. After the presentation we were encouraged to buy and I wished that I had just bought it outright. Our tour bus made frequent stops for lovely sightseeing and breaks so it was a comfortable trip with self purchase... More

According to our excellent guide Dennis, this tour was created from elements of other tours to give as wide as possible Oahu experience in a single day. It achieves this up to a point but by attempting to do this in one day there are obvious compromises which mean too little time spent at certain locations. However, due to Denis's... 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!!
