driving tour guides? If so h

Please share your Experiences using the gypsy or Shaka guides. Thinking about using the Shaka guide for the Circle Island Tour.

I've never used either of them but have heard good things about both. If you want something for free check the Top Questions on the right hand side of this page. Best viewed on a PC. Click on Oahu Driving Tours and DYI!!

Thanks. I checked that out and have narrowed it down to these 2 options. Both have good ratings but haven’t heard from someone who has used either one. I have a couple questions I want to ask.

"I have a couple questions I want to ask."

Gypsy Guide goes in a clockwise direction. I would never take a clockwise tour around Oahu Turns to the left to get to a beach may take a long time! Turns from a beach may also a long time making a left turn!

Driving around Oahu in a counterclockwise direction is best!

I do not know about Shaka Guide.

Ask your questions on this forum!

Perhaps someone who has not used either can also answer also your questions!

I have not used either Gypsy or Shaka! I am sure both are good! But if you stop at every stop they mention, it may double your time and you won't see a whole lot more!

Not sure if Gypsy or Shaka recommends hikes like Makapuu Lighthouse or Manoa Falls.

Did the Shaka. Found it quite good and informative but we had been around the island on a tour a few years beforehand. So we chose to stop at places we wanted to revisit or hadn’t visited. Was a bit hard to have a conversation as it has a continuous commentary.
