If you get the chance, book with a driver named Kapena. His stories will captivate and delight you as he drives around the island. I went on the O'Ahu Circle Island Tour (E1), and as a single traveller, I felt well taken care of. You cover a lot of ground, but you never feel rushed. Great tour!

Aloha,

Thank you for your review!

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your tour, and that Kapena was captivating. Our Oahu Circle Island Eco-Tour is one of our most popular tours, and is a terrific way to become familiar with the island of Oahu. We are so happy that you felt taken care of, and that you enjoyed your time with Discover Hawaii Tours.

We hope that you enjoyed your trip to Hawaii and that we will see you in Hawaii again.

Mahalo,

Last year we had a great day out with the Discover Hawaii Oahu Circle Island tour and booked with them again this year and also had a wonderful time! We did the North Shore/Dole Plantation/Polynesian Cultural Center day tour #13A. Our guide Keith was fantastic and kept us informed and entertained throughout the day. He had a lot of fun facts about the sights and the islands in general and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Dole whip was delicious as was lunch at the Polynesian Cultural Center. We had enough time to enjoy the "villages" at the Polynesian Cultural Center and see the boat parade. Keith also gave us restaurant recommendations and recommended a great surf school that we booked later in the week. Mahalo Keith and Discover Hawaii tours! We will be back next year!

We had not read any reviews and were recommended this tour by the hotel concierge - good choice., We did the half day tour of Honolulu and Pearl Harbour - starts around 9am (with hotel pick ups just before) and ends around 1.30pm. You will spend most of your day at Pearl Harbour, though you do a quick (drive through) tour of Honolulu in the morning.

It was good though there was only one photo stop near the palace, otherwise you will stay in the bus. Pearl Harbour s the main attraction - and you will have a few hours there to see the film about the attack, go out on the boat to the memorial and explore on your own. Do be aware that you have top check in all bags before entering Pearl Harbour (for $3 per bag) and can only take in what you can carry on yourself (water, camera, wallet etc)

Tour had about 20 people on it - mostly Americans, with some Canadians and other nationalities. The bus was clean and comfortable and the guide was very knowledgeable and also provided lots of recommendations for where to eat/go in Waikiki or Honolulu.

We went on the ultimate Circle Island Oaha Eco Adventure Tour with cousin Kevin as our guide. It was one of the best tours we have ever done thanks to Kevin. He was informative, helpful, and funny. The places we went were beautiful. Thanks for a wonderful day. Will recommend this tour to all my friends

This started well and we really enjoyed Pearl Harbour. After that it wasn't so good. We seemed to do lots of driving and sitting in the bus and I suspect that because we were running late we drove past some features e.g. historic Haleiwa Town.

We thought that the Dole Pineapple Plantation would be about growing the pineapples and the processing, but it was really just a big shop where we could spend money. We stopped at 2 other shops where we could spend money, neither of which added any value to the tour.

We seemed to spend most of the day on the bus listening to our driver. He was friendly, but not always complimentary about some of our fellow passengers and this was a concern.

At the end of the day he changed the order he was going to drop us off which meant we would be last - even though we went right past the block that our hotel was on. We got off early as we were fed up.

We did not enjoy this tour and did not think it was good value for money. It was a sitting tour, not a doing tour. We have been on other tours when we have been overseas and this one was a disappointment.
