We chose Discover Hawaii Tours for this tour based on the reviews. It was a perfect match! The buses are smaller (seats 25), which made for a more personalized experience. Our driver was Matt and he did a wonderful job enhancing the stops with extra bits of information. He was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The box lunch gave us a variety to choose from.The bus did not have bathroom facilities (like the larger tour busses), but most of the stops had restroom facilities.
It was a fun day and gave us memories for a lifetime.

I chose discover America tour based on trip advisor reviews. I chose this particular tour sine it seemed to include a nice overall tour and time between 8 30 and 4 was perfect. Matt was our tour guide and he was great providing good info and very friendly service. The tour is great because it makes a lot of scenic stops along cliffs and beaches for pics includes a brief city tour and provides the pearl harbor tour. It also provides a nice lunch near pearl harbor.

We were lucky to have a small group and excellent guide.

Aloha Michael,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review about your experience with Discover Hawaii Tours. We are so happy you enjoyed our "Pearl Harbor & South Shore Oahu Sightseeing Tour". This is one of our newest tours and it's great to hear such good feedback!

Oahu's South Shore is stunningly beautiful and experiencing this part of the island with a small group and a great tour guide can really add to the experience.

Mahalo Nui Loa for your support, we hope you can visit us in Hawaii again soon!

We chose Discover Hawaii tours for our Pearl Harbour visit since it included all the sights within the harbour, the Pacific Aviation museum, all admission costs and a city tour. When I phoned for the reservation the agent Mika didn't seem very knowledgeable about the tour. However, she did find out what information she didn't know.

On the day of the tour there was a mix up with who was our guide but it got straightened out without a problem. It's an early morning start and a long day to do the tour. However, it's worth putting in the hours as you see a lot. The admissions were included and also an audio tour of the Bowfin. We had a short guided tour at the Missouri and about 1 1/2 hours tour of the museum and planes. We also had a short city tour that at the end of the tour.

I think the cost of the tour is a bit expensive as the guide is basically a driver to take you to and from Pearl Harbour/Missouri and the Aviation museum. He does provide some information on the city tour. If you have the time to do the sights on your own it would be more cost effective. If you need transportation, shuttling around and a city tour then I would recommend this company. They were on time; professional and delivered what they said they would. I would have appreciated it if they provided a AAA discount.

We found that in order for us to see everything we had to move through the exhibits/museums quickly. I would have liked more time to see everything. However, the tour does a good job of trying to provide you with the most time to see everything within the constraints of the total tour time. I would have liked a little less time at the Air Museum. Although it was very interesting it is 1 1/2 hours of walking and standing and listening to a guide talk.

We did the Discover Hawaii Pearl Harbor/Coastal Tour on 1/22/13. Everything was 1st class from the pick-up from the airport to the Pearl Harbor tour to all of the stops along the way. Nice, new comfortable vehicles to transport us around the island. Good lunch was provided, plenty of chances to explore & take pictures. Would use them again....

Aloha Veljo1983,

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us! Greg must have done a great job if you can remember your experience all the way back from October.

We look forward to you joining us on a Road to Hana adventure when you return later on this year.
Until we meet again,
