Marian, We had an very enjoyable small group and we enjoyed every second of it. I cannot send enough Mahalo's. Mahalo Nui Loa, Captain Vince
Great trip around the island.
James_C, Oct 2022
Capt Vince was a great tour guide. Very friendly and personable. He pointed out so many interesting things. I was disappointed with the North Shore part of the trip did not see any turtles when snorkeling. The water was very murky. But overall we enjoyed the trip and do recommend Vince’s tour bus.
Response from Host, May 2023
James, Thank you for your Awesome Review. When you return I will personally make sure you see some Sea Turtles. The Norrh Shore is generally clear but sometimes its not. Mahalo Nui Loa, Captain Vince
Nice bus tour!
Kelly_R, June 2022
I looked at many tour options and this was seemed to best fit our needs! Papa P was our guide and he was quite knowledgeable and nice! The communication with the owner was fantastic. We got reminder texts before our visit and a text the night before to confirm pick up time and place. All were on time! The tour was a bit long for us. It was a VERY long day. We did enjoy most of the stops. I don't know if this was the "norm" but our tour was combined with another tour that was going on a hike at Waimea Falls. IF we wanted to do this it was going to cost an extra $20 per person. We were a party of 4 and considering we had already paid over $400 for the tour, we didn't really want to pay out another $80, plus the $18 per person that we had to pay extra for the lunch stop. It's quite an expensive day. Since we opted out of the Waimea hike we had to just "kill time" for 1.5 hours while everyone else went on the hike. We often do bus tours in new cities to learn and see all the sites. This one was on par with other tours we have done. It was our first time on the island and we wanted to see all we could. For that, it checked all the boxes.
Awesome tour indeed!

As first time visitors to O’ahu, we had no experience with tours of the island and wanted a great experience. My husband did some online research before our visit and because of great past reviews, we selected "The Awesome Circle Island Tour." (We booked through Viator). We were not disappointed!! Right from the start, our tour felt personal with a warm welcome and jovial conversation throughout. (It didn't hurt that our tour group only totaled 10 passengers). Our tour bus was clean and comfortable with big windows to allow maximum site lines. Our driver and guide, "Captain Vince," engaged with each member of the group - by name - and was especially inclusive of the kids on board. Vince is gregarious, personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel at ease - all important characteristics of a great tour guide. By the end, he made us feel like a family! We saw great views from Diamond Head, Halona Blowhole, visits to cool stops like a macadamia nut farm, Waimea beach, Iolani Palace and Dole Plantation. We stopped for lunch at Fumi's Shrimp Shack ($ not included in the cost of the tour), which was excellent. We then stopped at a produce stand for a fried lumpia, something I'm sure I wouldn't have done without Vince's recommendation. I personally appreciated that Vince knew other tour guides and was friendly with all of them but wasn't shy about telling us he wanted to stay ahead of the other tour groups, lest we suffer bottle necking of large crowds (...and restrooms!) We learned a number of Hawaiian words and sayings, adding the all-important local flavor to our tour. By the end of the day, 9.5 hours had flown by, and I was a little sad to leave our makeshift tour group family. My husband and I both felt our time (and money) was well spent on "The Awesome Circle Island Tour." I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to see the sites and become family with strangers... even for just one day.
Response from Host, May 2022
I am often reminded of what my elders taught me that it's the little things that mean so much.. We had an Awesome day with 10 Family members that were perfect strangers. That is the beauty of this Tour we all startout as Strangers but lend as Family. Family Ties it is. Mahalo Nui Loa fornyour wonderful Review and for choosing 1 Epic Tour for your Hawaii Tour of memories to last a Lifetime. Captain Vince
Terrific - highly recommend.
Shawn_N, Apr 2022
Dirk was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He had lots of fun facts that were off script. He had a good mental map of the city knowing where hotels were without the GPS. We enjoyed all the stops on the tour. Epic 1 tours made accommodations for us when they realized we were coming from another part of island and would be late. They were great about directing us to pick new pickup point that was more convenient.
Lynette_M, Feb 2022
Captain Vince was a great guide! Had a wonderful time with him although we figured out no matter how hard he tried he would never be able to teach me to speak like a Hawaiian 😉.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Lynette, Lord have Mercy. Yes this was a fun but tough crew. Lol I will be forever laughing about this day. Fun times in Hawaii. We will male sure you get it the next time. HA Mahalo Nui Loa
Magical Aloha Tour
Arnel_N, Feb 2022
Truly an Epic Tour! With Captain Vince at the helm, nothing can go wrong in this magical island tour. In less than a day, we were able to circle the island of Oahu dotted with memorable stops at the right places. Captain Vince made us all feel very much at home inside the bus with all information he shares about the places we visited delivered not in an academic way but in a narrative reflective of a truly local storyteller. Captain Vince was all fun and a dedicated aloha ambassador who truly enjoy what he is doing. Only one thing did not meet my expectations in this tour, a short stop somewhere in North Shore to take that coveted pictures of the winter surf, or if lucky, the banzai pipeline. But all was good that started and ended well. Very satisfied!!!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Arnel, I am speechless as this is one of the best reviews I have ever read. This is very touching. If anyone honestly knew how much I put into trying to make everyone's day memorable and special. This is the epitome of what 1 Epic Tour is all about. I appreciate you and your entire Family as we had an Amazing and Awesome day. I look forward in the Family's return to the Island. Sadly the State of Hawaii has stopped all Tour Shuttles from stopping at any of the Beautiful Beaches on the North Shore. It is sad but out of our hands. 😞 Many Mahalos to my New Ohana. Mahalo Nui Loa and "A Hui Hou"
Do this tour first!
Jason_B, Feb 2022
This should be the first thing you do when you get to Honolulu. Captain Vince ran a great tour. We got to see a temple, a waterfall, a beach, the Dole Plantation and other stops along the way, combined with great food and Shaved ice. Highly recommended.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Exactly what 1 Epic Tour strives to give an 1 Epic Day. We are glad you enjoyed and we look forward in seeing you the next time your Family is on the Island. Mahalo Nui Loa
Amazing tour, a must do!
Vanessa_A, Jan 2022
Our tour guide Vince was amazing!! Very friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the Oahu island. My family and I had an amazing time stopping at MUST SEE’S and getting unforgettable photos. We tried lots of food and he made sure that we didn’t miss out on any experience! 10/10 recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Vanessa your Family are Rock Stars and we are Proud to be Ohana. Mahalo Nui Loa for your kind words as well as your support. Mahalo Nui Loa and "A Hui Hou".
Kyoko was a great guide...
Kim_D, Jan 2022
Kyoko was a great guide and provided a non rushed experience. We were taken to some of the best views on the island. Would recommend to take tour early on in your stay.

Donise_M, Dec 2021
I have never been on a tour so amazing! Captain Vince is funny, down to earth, spiritual and most of all knowledgeable! He answered all of our questions in great detail took us to some of the most beautiful places on the island that I didn’t even know existed. I will most definitely book a private tour with him once we return to the island. Mohalo Captain Vince!
Response from Host, Dec 2021

Dominique_B, Nov 2021
Our tour was an amazing 1st day on the island decision. It took the work off of us and we got to enjoy. Our tour driver Kieoki was able to share vast knowledge of Oahu and just all around a fantastic person.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Dominique on behalf of 1 Epic we would like to say Mahalo for the kind words. Kieoki is definitely one of a kind. We are glad you enjoyed your Epic tour. We look forward in seeing you again when you visit the beautiful island of Oahu.
Insightful and Memorable
Shounette_G, Nov 2021
My family and I booked a private tour with 1 Epic Tour. We needed a tour that could accommodate my elderly mom and spend only a few hours out. Captain Vince was compassionate and my mom was impressed. He made the tour to the North Shore so much more fun. The Halona Blowhole was breathtaking. We enjoyed every stop. I recommend anyone coming to the Island of Oahu to take a tour with Captain Vince.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
We are so appreciative of your heartfelt review and we look forward in your return to the beautiful Island of Oahu.
