It was our first time in Hawaii and we wanted to be able to see the entire island to get an idea of the placed we wanted to revisit. If you are going to Oahu for the first time or even if you've been there and want to see things along the North Shore or the Windward side of the island, do this tour! My husband and I loved it!! We got to see the other beaches, the blowhole, we stopped at the shrimp farm (great food!) and the macadamia nut farm. I have a friend who lives on the island and she said she didn't know Oahu even had a shrimp farm or macadamia nut farm! I told her to do the tour as well!

Great tour for first timers to the island. Gives you a full overview of great spots, history (care of the driver), insider information. We took this tour early during our trip to decide if we wanted to rent a car to drive back to any of the places. Our driver was cousin James, and he was AMAZING!! So funny, and knowledgeable about the island. It is a bus tour, and most of the time is spent on the bus ... we stopped at about 9 spots at 15-20/place, other than for lunch. Totally worth it for an intro to the island!

Booked this trip using Groupon prior to visiting from the UK. Picked up on time from our hotel before setting out on a long day visiting various beach's, and tourist locations with the Byodo-In Temple being my favourite stop, so tranquil and peaceful. The narration was constant, our only criticism would be that there too many personal reference's from our driver, perhaps we could just enjoy the scenic views. Lunch is extra. If you get the opportunity to book via groupon like us then the trip is half price.

Quite enjoyable, but a little too touristy. The bus driver was amazing. The star of the show, although the coastal scenery was lovely!

It is a long tour but it is worth every minute. We had a wonderful tour guy. He was very informative, funny, and he did some singing and played the ukulele. We saw Pearl Harbor, Dole Plantation, Sunset Beach, the Pipeline of the North Shore, the Polynesian Center with a wonderful lunch, Tropical Farms, Valley of the Temples, Pali lookout. Well worth our money.
