Excellent tour
Becky_F, Apr 2023
Excellent tour of the island. Our tour guide, Travis, a native Hawaiian, was very professional and shared much about the history and culture of the island. He was awesome. We highly recommend this tour.
Beautiful, informative trip around Oahu
lgtorres1, Mar 2023
We LOVED this private tour!! We saw whales breaching, sea turtles, people surfing a river outlet (I'd only seen something like that online!), saw a couple of surfers on hydrofoils and had a fabulous lunch stop where you could choose from all sorts of local foods from least 10 different food trucks. There was so much more!! (I don't want to give it all away. Go experience it for yourself!!) We also really appreciated learning about the history of the areas we went through and he taught us a little about the language. Our guide, Travis, gave us so much insight to what it's like to be a Hawaiian and was so open, warm and charming. We did several tours and this was by far the best!!
Wonderful, entertaining and interesting and a tour that should be taken

Michael_B, Feb 2023
Our tour guide Sean a local, very knowledgeable, very entertaining, and most of all very accommodating to all of our needs. If you’re looking to get the full Hawaiian experience, Be sure to book with Sean.
Worth every penny we paid

The whole experience was great, I’m glad we were able to do it at the beginning of our trip, we went back to some of this places we saw Big thanks to Travis (our guide) we were lucky to get him great guy!!!
Definitely recommend.
Martha_S, Mar 2022
Travis is awesome! From the moment he said hello to the moment we said goodbye, Travis was incredible. We felt like we’ve known him forever. He was so kind and understanding to my husband’s unexpected disability that day. His love for and knowledge of the history of the area was superb. It was a fun day. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Circle Island Tour with Sean!
Pam_W, Feb 2021
What a wonderful Private Oahu Circle Island Tour with Sean! He picked us up at the Aulani Hotel when most tours currently are not traveling there. He gave us great information throughout the day. He gave us choices and adapted the day to our preferences. Sean took fabulous pictures. He knows the local places and gave us choices for lunch. It was a wonderful day and we would highly recommend this tour!
Everything You Could Want in a Private Tour

Wonderful tour of the island. Our guide was knowledgeable, kind, and flexible with what we wanted to see. Highly recommend!

Veronica P, Aug 2018
Our tour guide Matt showed up almost an hour late, we were stuck waiting for him in the pouring rain, but despite him being on Island Time, this was the best tour we took in Hawaii. He was an amazing tour guide who did everything possible to make up for the rough start to our day! He is really knowledgeable of the area and I was able to get some really nice photographs. I gave him a really hard time, but he it dealt with it like a champ! This was a great tour, and if you are staying in Honolulu you would be doing yourself a disservice to not venture out to see the real Hawaii! I highly recommend this tour!
Long over due review from our trip...
Lise, Oct 2017
Long over due review from our trip to Oahu. Me and my husband went on an all day trip tour with Dan our awsome guide, driving around the island in a jeep. We got to see beaches that where almost empty but beautiful, if tourist knew they didn't have to pack themselves on Waikiki beach To bad I didn't bring any swim wear. Our guide went way and beyond to make our day an awsome one. We even got back to our hotel later then scheduled. We got to see wonderful beaches, a resting sea turtle on a turtle beach, try new and interesting native food etc.

michael_c, Oct 2017
There is no other way to see the island than with this tour! Matt was the most amazing guide we have ever had, he was so knowledgeable but not boring about it. We were the only ones in the jeep so it was like a private, exclusive trip and we were lucky that Matt was prepared to be flexible and adapt the stops to our needs. We cannot recommend this company and Matt specifically more highly...why would anyone want to be herded on and off a big bus when they can be treated like royalty? We didn't stop laughing, talking and enjoying for the entire 7 hours! Please do not go past this company for your next excursion on Oahu... and, if you can, ask for Matt!!!

Malcolm L, Aug 2017
Trip is great for first timers to Hawaii or to explore outside of Waikiki. Our driver, Lanaii, was very informative regarding history and the battles the locals face with development. He showed us some great sites and their relevance and also some great places to eat. The trip was comfortable, relaxed and well paced. If all the drivers are as good as Lanaii then it's good value for money.

Susy C, May 2017
David was our driver and guide, and we were lucky that we were the only ones on this Jeep tour. As we had already done most of the island, other times, he tailored our tour to what we wanted to do. He was great, was like we knew him for years. Knew the island, we went to this coffee place that tour buses, do not go. Went to Haliewa but rained so much we could not get out. Went to Dole plantation a must when in Hawaii and get the pineapple soft serve. Great day, Thanks David.

This was my most favorite tour that we booked. I would recommend this to anyone. This is the perfect way to see the island. Dan our guy was wonderful. Really enjoyed having him as our tour guide for the full day.

DEBRA_H, July 2016
We were traveling as a group of 5, so we had two jeeps for our tour. Our tour guides Sean and Kovin very informative and gave us alot of info about Oahu. We stopped for many spectacular scenic views, and returned afterward to the amazing swimming spot that the tour guides recommended.
I cant say enough about this tour...
Kathy H, Feb 2016
I cant say enough about this tour! Absolutely loved every minute of it. We took this tour the day after we arrived so we could rest from the travel and get a look around the island. We were met on time by Sean, our tour guide, in a newer Jeep. Over the next SEVEN hours, Sean took me and my travel partner around half the island, showing us all of the hot spots, hidden spots, taking us to a local place for lunch, and suggesting places we might want to stop. We skipped what didnt interest us which was very little and hit everything that we wanted. Sean's knowledge of the island and the island history was excellent. I spent several years on Oahu when I was younger and I had forgotten much but Sean knew all the local spots and great beaches and it was a terrific walk down memory lane for me. But what absolutely blew me away was Sean's absolute sincere desire to show and share the aloha spirit. He truly enjoyed taking us around and showing off as much of what the island as he could. He brought water and some of aunty's homemade spam and rice bars for us on the trip, turned us onto to ice cream bananas from the fruit stand, and gave us a list of local places for good meals near where we were staying. From the Valley of the Temples to the shrimp truck and hidden beach, it was an extraordinary tour, very personalized, very relaxing, and I will definitely do it again the next time I visit. MAHALO SEAN, for the best Hawaiian tour Ive ever experienced!

Barbara C, Nov 2015
This tour was awesome and we would highly recommend it. Our tour guide was extremely flexible and even though there was a set plan, he was willing to revise it according to what we wanted to see and what we had already seen as tourists. We had kids and a senior citizen along for the tour and everyone enjoyed it. Our tour guide Beau Bertelmamn was the best ever. Very polite, funny and extremely knowledgeable about the Hawaiian culture, people and traditions.
