Kei and Jojo gave us a great tour and were kind, patient, intelligent and entertaining. The sites were amazing and we saw and learned of things that we wouldn’t have been able to know of or do on our own. We did not prefer to be on the large bus and would have had an even more amazing time if it were in a smaller group on a smaller shuttle. We highly recommend this trip!

Aloha CandC, THANKS! for giving Jojo, Kei and our Ultimate Circle Island Adventure with Waimea Waterfall 5 stars! We use the luxury larger bus because it has bigger windows, more comfortable seating, an air filteration system and a professional driver with a second excellent tour narrator. Smaller buses have smaller windows, less comfortable seats, no air filtration system, are generally older and the driver is also the narrator which effects both the safety of driving and the quality of narration. Two people can do the tour much better than one. We are very grateful to be able to share the island of O'ahu with amazing guests like yourself:) All the Best,

My daughter and I really enjoyed the Circle Island tour. Our guide was Jojo and our driver was Benny. Jojo was very knowledgeable and funny. He kept everyone's attention with his wit and humor, even my teenage daughter. I learned so much about the island history and the plants and animals. This was my favorite day of our trip and I highly recommend it. Benny was a well skilled driver and kept us on pace for the trip.

If you like stunning scenery, multiple stopovers at diverse sites, wildlife/seascape photography, and well informed commentary by an expert in flora, fauna, history and geography -all in one day, this tour is all of this and more. Ask for JoJo as your guide. He was a fabulous, entertaining, witty and friendly local biologist who knew everything in detail and answered every question eagerly. His enthusiasm was contagious and his humorous remarks about important facts made the 11 hours a memorable breeze. And you really spend a lot of time off the bus enjoying while learning so don't be discouraged by the tour length. I'd do it again.

My wife and I really enjoyed this full day tour of Oahu. Our guide, Jojo, was excellent and provided an ongoing narration of every point of interest as we drove up the coast to the north shore of the island. Our driver, Anthony was excellent as well. This is a great way to see the entire island and then pick specific spots to return to. Our tour group was awesome as well and everyone was always on time getting back to the bus so we could maximize our time at each stop. The lunch stop at Fumi's was really good...not fancy...but really delicious! Tips: Sit on the right side of the bus...be on time...the closer to the front you sit, the faster you can hit the bathroom (especially for the women as there are not great restroom options...too few stalls)...tip your tour guide !

You get to see a lot of the island through the day. The lookout sites are amazing. Our tour guide was a native of Hawaii and shared many personal and familial stories which was very cool to hear. If you don’t have a lot of time in Hawaii or you don’t have a car to get to the North Shore, this is the perfect way to do it. Unfortunately at a lot of stops people were SUPER late getting back to the bus, but our driver and tour guide still made sure we had enough time at each stop.
