We took the #3 tour to Waimea Waterfall and 'Circle Island' on 2 July 2014. Our tour guide 'Rana' arrived within the specified time window (a small miracle given Honolulu traffic!). She looked after us all day, including a very informative escorted walk up to Waimea Waterfall, during which we learned heaps about Hawaiian plants and birds, traditional Hawaiian beliefs, history and current issues.
Rana was flexible with timings at the various stops, catering to the group's interests and staying with us virtually the whole time. She provided interesting commentary as we travelled between stops, pointing out places of interest and putting them in context.
I had been around the Island several times over the years, but always in a small sedan car. The Oahu Nature Tours bus was very comfortable and the large windows afforded much better views than from a normal car. It was great being in a small group tour (11 guests on our tour).
It was a nice touch to have bottled water supplied throughout the (very hot!) day, and lunch included. We arrived back at the drop-off point precisely on time - another miracle after a 7-hour tour!
This tour was excellent value.
