This is a great tour for first timers, I think we saw more then most people do in a week. A few tips. Bring water and have a good breakfast as lunch was not until 1230. If you want to swim with the sea turtles bring your suit and a towel and your own gear. We didn't read the description well enough so we missed out on that. KIKI is so knowledgeable. Keep in mind this is an all day tour so you won't be done until 530 or 6pm. One other comment the morning line up with about 100 other tours is a bit chaotic. I would recommend the drivers have signs because you can't hear anything with all the street noise when they are calling names. Be patient. KIKI was so great, we felt like family by the time we were done- Ohana!

Definitely worth doing this tour. Our driver was extremely knowledgeable and so much fun to ride with. I would recommend doing the tour the first day or 2 on the island so you can spend more time in the areas they took us.

We were satisfied with the tour. I would not stopped at the couple of places like Dole plantation and Macadamia nut factory. their were absolutely unnecessary commercial stops, for example we had to stay in line on the heat to enter Dole shop . All nature related stops were very pleasant, specially swimming with the turtles. Lunch was ok. The bus was old and AC could work better. The driver /tour guide Vincent was informative, attentive and very entertaining. Overall it was good tour, considering we booked it at very short notice.

Honolulu part of tour ok. Interesting info. Liked guide overall but found some of his comments a little forced or practiced. Tour of island beaches ok. Stop to swim with turtles was a bit of a non event. Hardly anyone went in the water and there was only one turtle to see and it was on shore. Nothing to see in water except maybe a fish. I didn't see anything. We went but didn't stop at the North Shore. Did stop at Dole pineapple place to buy a "Dolewhip" which is a whip thing like ice cream which is apparently in a Disney film. Not much info on Dole plantation history except that they produce only for local consumption now. Some bus info on growing pineapple practices. Also stopped at Kona coffee place which is basically a place to taste coffees and buy package of coffee and cheap overpriced souvenirs. I would skip but others liked it. Almost forgot, stopped at a shrimp fish farm for lunch. It was ok. Preordered as all the tour buses stop there and service can be slow. Outdoor area, picnic benches. Another day we rented a car and drove to the North Shore. It was really easy getting around with phone GPS map. Passed the places of the tour. Would do that rather than tour if one is comfortable renting a car.

The tour was a total of 7.5-8 hours long and took us to all the best photo op spots in Oahu. Our tour guide King was friendly, knowledgeable, and very entertaining. I felt bad for him as we were a smaller group and probably not as lively as he’s used to but he still managed to keep us laughing and enjoying ourselves. We stopped at a couple of snack/lunch spots as well. Fumi shrimp was delicious and The Coffee Farm had probably the best blended mocha I’ve ever tasted. Only tip is to not go on a Wednesday like we did because Dole plantation was closed. But King made it up to us by ending our tour with a spontaneous drive through the downtown area. We saw a lot of great spots like the palace, King Kamehameha statue, and even got to check out tropical fish. Thank you for a great tour of the island! Can’t wait to come back and bring the family

After a confusing start at Ross department store , too many buses , people creating lots of noise coupled with no ID on any bus indicating which tour they were conducting. We finally got underway with Kiki as our driver. Well the day turned out fantastic. Kiki was very knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. Great 👍 tour thanks.

Kiki was our tour guide, and he was amazing. From sharing island legends to keeping us entertained with his ukulele. He brought us to a macadamia nut farm, a famous shrimp truck place that had live music, to the shores of the famous North shore surfing pipeline, and then to the Dole plantation. It was well worth the money and the hours. We were never bored, and got to see the amazing views from all over the island. I highly recommend Kiki and this tour.

Worst tour I've ever been on. We were supposed to see several places in Oahu, went to 3 places out of about 15. We were supposed to snorkel, instead were taken to a beach called the pipeline. We didn't see the warning signs posted until we were leaving, (but the guide should of known) several of us almost drowned including small children. The bus had no air. Our Dole plantation & lunch wasn't pre-ordered. We were not able to go to the Dole Plantation since they had a 2 hour wait to get in. Total waste of our LAST day in Hawaii. Worst day ever.

We are not a 15 stop circle island tour - that is a completely different product / company. Sorry if there was confusion with your expectations.

The tour was way too long. We left at 8:45am after a late pick up filled with confusion. We were told to meet at the pick up at 8am- but there were multiple pick up locations and all are told 8am… 3 buses were taking out tours and all stopped to pick up from our location and were splitting up families and one bus had 2 random seats left in between guests. The owner showed up and told the two women who were mad about sitting between people that they could go and deal with it or go tomorrow. That was annoying. The bus we had was clean but it was packed. The tour was so long… too long. We got to Dole Plantation at the end and it was closing so we couldn’t tour it. The bus was warm because the A/C couldn’t keep up with the heat. The tour guide was lovely. He was informative and funny. No snorkel gear provided. I mean, we did see the whole island, but it was a long, sweaty, ride… Hawaii is beautiful though…

Our tour guide was friendly, professional and entertaining. He played the ukulele and sang to us. It added a special touch to our experience. He also allowed a short stop to enjoy surfers with 10 to 12 foot waves in Waimea Bay. We saw sea turtles and a sea lion sunbathing at the beach, koi fish at the Dole Plantation, the bus ride was along the coast. Travel tip: 1. Sit on the right hand (passenger) side to get gorgeous views most of the way right out your window. 2. Bring cash for your lunch order. 3. Bring water shoes, bathing suit and beach towel.
