    This tour was awesome. !! Our tour director Marlon made this entire experience FABULOUS. He was a great driver, he was entertaining, interesting and engaging. His knowledge on Hawaiian culture blew our minds. The tour stops were very good and he kept us on time. Highly recommend this tour and hopefully you will get Marlon. Thankyou Marlon !
    Great tour

    Got to see a lot of the island. Make sure to sit on the right side of the big golden bus. View photo stops and enough time to have lunch (Cameron's shrimp truck!!!!) and eat shave ice. Prefer to have more time at the photo stops and less at the Dole pineapples (was fun, but mainly tourist shopping)..

    Our driver and tour guide, Lola, did a first rate job of making this a memorable experience. She is well versed in the history of Hawaii, and did a great job of keeping us informed. The time set aside for each stop was adequate without being too long, allowing us to see and experience more of Hawaiian culture and history, and allowing us ample time to sample what each stop had to offer. The 90 minute stop in Haleiwa gave us time for lunch, and time to shop at the interesting stores and galleries. We were picked up and dropped off exactly on time, even with traffic and road work. Lola was great as a tour guide and her driving skills were very impressive! I would certanily recommend this to anyone coming to Hawaii! We considered renting a car and just doing somewhat the same route, but would have missed the history that Lola provided. I beleive that we received good value for the price of the tickets.
    See Honolulu
    Barbara_M, Sep 2023
    Awesome tour. Very informational. Tour guide was excellent, courteous, friendly, a people person, and very knowledgeable. The tour was one every visitor to Honolulu should take.
    Lola is the best Tour guide.
    Betty_Y, Sep 2023
    I really enjoy my island circle tour with Lola. She is a riot, is very humorous, patient, and is a person that loves her job, and it shows. She has made us laugh many times, and we all love her, the entire bus.
    Great day out
    Sue_C, Sep 2023
    Lola was great and did really well driving since it was her “first day” lol. 😀 She made the day fun with her commentary I would recommend this tour to everyone
    Best tour on the island
    Ashley_V, Sep 2023

    Excellent tour. Well worth the cost Need more time at Dole. Could not get dole whip because lines were too long and.

    The bus was comfortable and the sights seen amazing. But what made it most enjoyable was the driver LoLa.. she had such comprehensive knowledge, I learnt so much on the journey, but she made it fun, her humour and knowledge outstanding.. a wonderful experience
    Perfect trip
    Gary_M, Sep 2023
    Everything was wonderful. The stops were convenient for accommodating not having to sit for long periods. Everything was done to make the trip a wonderful experience. A perfect day! Thanks for the beautiful weather!!

    Alex_B, Aug 2023
    We did our Tour 18 Aug, so this review is late. Our driver was Kalani, he looked after us very well. Great information of places we would visit, and towns we passed through. He was clear on what time we needed to be back on the bus, and made sure he counted everyone was back on the bus. He is the Mantis at reversing the bus into a packed carpark! The tour covers most of the island, so you get to see a snipet of everything. A great intro tour.

    Tony was the best tour guide i have ever had. He made us feel like Ohana. Like a part of his family. They gave us water and a hawaiian donut. All the stops were beautiful and so worth it. He told us the history of Hawaii. Lots of food and shops at the city visit of Halawei. The Dole plantation was my favorite. Wish we had more time there ! The best tour and worth every penny !!!
    Great experienced
    marissa_k, Aug 2023
    Very educational and entertaining. Have learned a lot about Oahu . Definitely a must to do when in Honolulu
    Excellent Oahu tour!
    Susan_R, Aug 2023
    Lola, our tour guide, was excellent! She was so engaging and knowledgeable. We learned so many facts. We also loved the donuts she provided!
    Long day but worth the trip
    Jean_C, Aug 2023
    Lots of interesting info from our bus driver and guide LOLA. Special mention to her. Long day but worth it if . We only had 5 days here so the Island Tour is a great way to get a taste of Oahu.
    Great Tour!
    Brenda_M, Aug 2023
    Our tour guide Tony was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Hawaii’s history and he taught us some of the language too. We saw some great sites and our group was great. I would recommend doing this tour when you first get to Hawaii to learn your way around. Then we took our rental car and drove to a lot of places afterwards.😃
    Amazing Tour Around Hawaii!
    John_B, Aug 2023
    First time in Hawaii for me and my wife and we wanted a tour that included a handful of sights. This tour was a success beyond our expectations. Our driver and tour guide Marlon was amazing and super friendly and knowledgeable. Marlon made this tour fun and interactive. Even though it is a 9 hour tour, the day went by quick in a good way. Highly recommend this tour, especially for first time Hawaii visitors! Aloha and Mahalo ~
    Breath taking
    Barb_D, Aug 2023
