A couple days ago, we went on a tour of Pearl Harbor, The Dole Pineapple Plantation & The Polynesian Cultural Center through Discover Hawaii Tours and had a great time! We had "cousin Kevin" as our guide and he was both entertaining & knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour!

My girlfriend and I took the 10 hour Oahu Island Tour. Our guide John was brilliant and provided an amazing overview of the Island, it's history and the people that make it what is. We'd highly recommend this tour. If you can, ask for John to be your guide!!

Pick-up over 1 hour late after being told to move to different locations 3 times. Finally picked up by automobile and taken to Pearl Harbor to catch up with tour. Missouri tour was OK. Pearl Harbor was not. Returned from Arizona Memorial at 2pm. Had been told to make sure and visit two museums afterwards. only to find that bus had left at 2:20pm. Finally caught another bus with different tour. Not a good day.

We came from Australia and we were uncertain of the best way to tour the Pearl Harbour sites and also what tour to take to see the island .We looked around and decided to take two tours with Discover Hawaii Tours. Our experience was first class. We had two different drivers on each tour.
Christine looked after us on the Pearl Harbour tours and we had a great day. Seeing the four sites means that there is not a lot of time to see everything but it was well very managed and we very well looked after.
We then took the Circle Island tour with Nancy and she could not have been more helpful. As a nervous traveller Nancy allowed me to sit in the front of the bus with her and she looked after me all day. We stopped at all the regular sites and a few extras as well. The unexpected stop at the roadside fruit stall was the best pineapple I ever tasted. The Polynesian Cultural Centre and the Byodo-In Temple were highlights.
I recommend Discover Hawaii Tours as our drivers and the experience was excellent.

We took the "Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure" tour with Discover Hawaii Tours in March. Our guide, John B was exceptional. He kept us entertained for almost 10 hours, while driving us around the island in a mini-bus, stopping at many places and beaches along the way. His knowledge of the island's history, culture, legends and current affairs was awesome and he was a masterful storyteller. Some of the stops we made were to tour a botanical garden, purchase fresh fruit from a road side stand, take a boat ride to a secret beach where we ate a bag lunch,drive up to a high altitude look-out, walk through a Japanese temple, take a drive through Punchbowl Cemetery, and stop to see the exterior of Iolani palace. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and learned a lot..

We also did the "Complete Pearl Harbor Experience" tour with a different guide from Discover Hawaii Tours. His explanations for how things would flow between each segment of the tour were somewhat confusing, but after some discussion with fellow travelers, we all managed to be at the right place at the right time, and experienced everything that was included. It was an excellent, comprehensive tour of the whole area. I am claustrophobic and was apprehensive about going down into the Bowfin submarine. However, I managed to assert mind over matter, and was glad I did. The spaces were very compact, and the thought of being down there, underwater, and under attack during wartime, was terrifying. The Arizona memorial was solemn and thought provoking, and the tour of the "Mighty MO" (Missouri battleship) was very interesting. I highly recommend the complete tour.
