Probably the most fun I had on my adventure to Hawaii
The tour guide was Papa P and let me tell you he really made it feel like everybody on the bus was one big Ohana as if your grandpa was taking you out on a drive or something. As far as the tour goes it’s great as it takes you to the important sight seeing spots of the island witch are rather hard to access with out a car. Papa p would pull up to the destination and depending on the location and are interest give us a time range of 15-30 minutes to explore and wonder. Papa p organization also allowed us to save time witch in turn gave us more time to snorkel with turtles. Awesome Becuase we actually got to swim with them! Like I mentioned Papa P was awesome and truly made my island tour unforgettable!!
after the event I tried to book another tour before I left back to Phoenix but the offices were closed and thus my adventure came to an end I recommend booking solely through the aloha company as it seems to be a one stop shop from island tour to north shore tour sunset cruises!!!

Also did the Pearl Harbor tour, I liked the informative information that was provided to us by cuzzo kalki

, Only thing I regret was not booking more activities through the aloha company. You guys are the best!!!!

Kiki gave a full day’s worth of interesting facts about Hawaii’s history and culture mixed in with legends and fun trivia. It was a full and valuable experience. Despite unexpected road closures, heavy traffic, and unforeseen construction delays, he took alternate routes and was still able to cover the sites promised on the itinerary. Thanks for a wonderful experience, Kiki.

Had a good day out circling the island. The trip starts out counter clockwise stopping at the Diamond head lookout and then on hwy 72 driving through the beautiful eastern shores stopping at a couple places along the way. Then make our way cutting through the mountains over to the north shore beaches. ordered lunch from a delicious shrimp shack which we ate at turtle bay. Worth the trip if you don’t plan on renting a car in Oahu or want to scope the land and then explore certain places on your own.
five stars for the tour guide Captain Vince! he was very energetic, enthusiastic and very informative. He kept all travelers engaged at all times! really good job!! Docked a star for the company themselves. The company lacked communication for pickup time and pickup spot. Had to call the office the evening before and finally connected with a nice gentleman who gave me the 30 min pickup window and pickup location. At one point I thought I missed the bus and called the dispatcher’s number which kept going to a voicemail. A tad bit of panic settled in.. but then about 30 mins into the wait Captain Vince shows up. He could not locate my name but was ok to let me join when I showed the confirmation email. Spoke with a few fellow travelers and they had some trouble with communication and pick up into too. All in all i would highly recommend this for an overview of the island but please stay on top of all communication so that you are not left behind! Mahalo!

My husband and I have never been to Hawaii so we signed up for this island tour with 5 other family members. The long day sounded like it would be a drag having 3 kids under the age of 7, but we were lucky enough to have Kiki as a guide and we couldn’t be happier about it. He was full of knowledge, wether it was of the past or the present. The stops were just the right amount of time and enjoyable places. Aside from Kiki’s commentary, lunch at Fumi’s was by far the best part of the day. We were hit with lots of rain in the middle of our tour but Kiki still parked the van and walked half of the bus (people who were willing) back through the beach so we could see the sea turtles. 10/10 recommend this experience.

I’ve never been threatened by a tour guide before coming on this tour…

So everything is going smoothly- until it came time to go snorkeling. Ya know- the thing we paid for. The wife and I go to change, and then I go to get our snorkels. I guess I had the audacity to ask for the equipment I paid for…

Our tour driver, Kona, took exception to this. He said he had 20 snorkels, and if he’s out then there are no more snorkels left. I then asked if we’d get the extra money back for the snorkels, seeing as though they don’t have the equipment.

Big mistake. The next words out of Kona’s mouth were threatening to crack my skull and getting he kept getting more upset. He then proceeded to call his boss and again, threaten me with his boss on the phone.

I honestly don’t have any words: this is hands down the worst tour experience I’ve ever had.

The kicker is that I have to now get back on this bus with an unstable angry driver… currently waiting for their main office to call me back and “resolve this lack of aloha spirit.”

Save your money, find another operator.

Kona doesn't work for us so I think you left a review for a separate company. Sounds scary though - definitely sorry this happened to you.

There is not enough words to describe how Capitan Vince was awesome during our Aloha Circle Island Tour on August 10, 2021. He not just made this trip unforgettable, but he created a super family/friends atmosphere among 25 different people who saw each other at their very first time. The tour included a lot of sightseeing such are: turtle beach, Iolani palace, sunset beach, a tons of scenic view locations etc. Capitan Vince shared all the tips for Oahu travelers, which were super helpful! He also taught us a lot about history and Hawaiian language! Mahalo nui loa, captain Vince!!

I am sooooo happy I was referred to Captain Vince. I was actually pretty anxious about going to Hawaii and not renting a car because I do like to see what the city in traveling to has to offer outside of regular tourist stuff. After taking his tour I feel like it took my trip above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this tour as Vince is a very knowledgeable tour guide and takes you to get some great food and learn some great history about Hawaii. Since the tour I have been extremely intrigued with the history of Hawaii. If i would have never taken this tour i don’t think i would have ever gotten that spark!

The guide “Kiki” was fantastic. He provided lots of historical and personal facts that provide insight into the island’s history and culture.

The reason for the 3 star rating:

(1) The tour operates as a taxi service and doesn’t provide any activities that cost money. As an example: At the Dole Plantation, the tour, for what it charges, should have included the train ride or the maze as part of the cost of the tour.

(2) Another disappointment: The beach stop was dismally inadequate. The restrooms were extremely unsanitary and the tour does not provide umbrellas or lounge chairs. I am sure there are beach stops that provide clean bathrooms and facilities that enhance the tourist experience.

(3) The lunch stop at Fumi’s was a rundown unsanitary establishment with a limited menu. We expected to have some choices on the menu that would appeal to a broad clientele. A better solution would be to stop at a place where there are multiple eating establishments.

The blowhole, the Macademia, the coffee stops were great. The Dole Plantation stop would have been more interesting if the tour had given us more time to explore. The island circle tour does give you a quick overview of the island for those with limited time who want to get to know it on the surface.

The tour is not a good value for the amount charged. The tour is not worth the cost at over a hundred dollars per person.

The entire experience on this tour was awesome... Captain Vince, you are the man. If you are lucky enough to get Captain Vince as your guide you are in for a fun filled laid back time.. As the tour went on I felt like we all became family.. I'm not good a writing reviews but I tell you this tour for my wife and I was tops.. from the stops we made to the food we ate. Captain Vince made sure everything went smooth and ran on time. He has some tricks up his sleeve in getting food at your lunch stop that skips over the line that wraps around the building. We were in and out in less than fifteen minutes and we took our food to a beautiful beach nearby where we had the opportunity to snorkel. Captain Vince was extremely informative and even taught us some Hawaiian words.
We were super impressed with this tour and would most definitely recommend it to anyone. One of the best things that happened on our trip was the moment Captain Vince prayed over us all for safety and that we would all have an awesome time. Well prayers were answered.. Thank you Aloha Circle Island Tour and thank you Captain Vince. Your the best. God bless you.

Shelly,
She is very friendly and had patient for us as a deaf couple. She took her time to communicate with us and gave us the accessibility to read her lips when she was driving and her mirror was right on her lips for us to see what going on on this tour. I miss nothing and had the best time of my life. Definitely want to come back again with my family and friends. Shelly you the best! Thanks for giving us love! We really appreciate her. She a 5 star!!!
