Went to Pearl Harbor on this Discover Tour and enjoyed the guide (Kevin) who was very knowledgeable about Honolulu and Pearl Harbor. He made it fun and easy to navigate the different areas at Pearl Harbor for very specific times. The bus driver picked us up promptly near our hotel. Bus was very comfortable, air conditioned and had big clean windows. We visited Iolani Palace and the cemetary after Pearl Harbor. It was an all day adventure but Kevin made it interesting yet educational. I don't usually take tours but felt this one was definitely worth it.

We booked the Hawaii Volcano Eco Tour during our recent trip to Hawaii as we have always wanted to see and active volcano. This was one of the only "must dos" during our trip. We found this company simply from a Google search and booked after reading reviews.

The tour company was very professional and our guide knowledgable and friendly. The air transportation to and from Oahu were exceptional and had no hiccups at all.

The tour itself was very informative and much better than we could have expected. It's well paced and you get to see all the sights! There was some rain during our day but the guide did a great job getting us from place to place avoiding it. He even changed the order of the sights to visit to avoid the rain. Excellent job!

One negative was the lunch stop. Admittedly I am a picky eater but my travelling companions were not. We each ordered the hamburger and fries when they stopped at a local restaurant. When we were eating our food we all felt it tasted "off" but were told it's from "Island cows". Well, I guess Island cows are not for us. All of us felt a bit off but I got the worst of it and about 2 hours after lunch I was just trying to hold it all together. I didn't let on how bad I was feeling to my companions but they could tell I wasn't doing well. I enjoyed the rest of the tour the best I could, flew home, drove all of us to our hotel and within minutes....well I was in the bathroom. We were travelling with a nurse who said it was definitely food poisoning. By mid the next day I was nearly 100% but it wasn't a nice way to spend the night and feeling off the next morning. Just beware when eating at the local restaurant. Not tour companies fault.

All in all we would book this tour again, and will do so when we come back with our other friends.

We did an all day tour of Pearl Harbor to include the Arizona Memorial, Battleship Missouri, the USS Bowfin WWII submarine, the Pacific Aviation Museum, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) and a brief city tour .

Matt was our guide and picked us up at our hotel. This was a lot to see in one day but it covered all the essentials in my opinion. Matt gave us some great tips to maximize the efficiency of our time without feeling rushed.

My wife and kids really enjoyed this tour and found our guide funny, personable, and eager to make sure we had a great tour.

We would recommend this company (and in particular our guide Matt) to anyone considering touring Oahu.

Our experience with Discover was great. We booked the late morning Historic Honolulu tour and Pearl Harbor. They called me the morning before to confirm and picked us up on time at the correct location. Our guide Tavito was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor! A month after our tour, our 16 yr old daughter and 11 yr old son, still talk about Tavito, and how much they "just love him" :) I do wish we'd had about 30 minutes longer at Pearl Harbor, to just explore the grounds. We would definitely book a tour with Discover again!
