“Excellent tour!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I went to Oahu for the first time knowing absolutely nothing about the island..the tour picked us up promptly at our hotel and returned us at exactly the time they had told us, what happened in between was truly entertaining and amazing, especially that they could throw in all most of the islands highlights in that time!! Pearl Harbor was amazing, saw North Shores towns &beaches, where many movies were filmed-at lunch at a beautiful seaside property, stopped at a small farmers stand to try some local food/fruit/veggies. What made our trip even better was that we had an absolutely wonderful tour guide, Greg Worley. He made us laugh and got us in touch with the islands language, cultures &traditions..we had no idea we would have such a great time! This tour did everything it said it would and more!! You could tell he truly loved his island and wanted to share it with others!

“Oahu with "Cousin Roy"”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The tour and the guide was great. We were not rushed. Yes we had a little rain but who can control the weather. Lunch was not provided but advance notice was given. Stops were numerous and we had ample time to look around, shop and take plenty pictures. Cousin Roy was very knowledgeable of the area and dos and don'ts. This tour was one not to be missed. Their was an advisory alert insome areas so Cousin asked us to be careful. I did get in the water anyway. However at Sunset Beach flags were up as a warning and Cousin called me out so I stayed on the bus. Yes I would have gotten in the water and it was dangerous so I saved myself with Cousin's help. Listen to your guides they really are helpful. Back to review, get the pineapple ice cream at the Dole Plantation, Coral Kingdom was the food stop and it was ok. In case ou don't know rice is a staple in Hawaii like mashed potatoes inland. Gift shop that sells macadamia nuts was next stop and it gave samples!!!! All in all the tour was well worth it.

Reviewed February 18, 2013

Rockie was a great guide. Plenty of stops. Lots of knowledge, plenty of time to take pictures, clean comfortable bus, They picked us up at the Hotel and dropped us back off that evening. We saw alot of places and beaches we would have missed if we had not taken this tour. Highly recommend.

“Great if you are not renting a car”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a long day of touring but it is an excellent way to see the island if you are not going to rent a car or if you are like us, and this is your first time on the island. We were taken to all the spots of interest....only drawback is limited time at Dole and in the n.w. beach areas.
