Great tour, highly recommend. This was a 12 seater bus which was intimate and comfortable. The tour showed us a lot of the Island, beaches, the beautiful Byodo-in temple, green mountain areas, Sea turtles and the Pineapple plantation. The guide was great, friendly, helpful and full of information. The stops were just the right length of time and we all enjoyed this tour.Reviewed by: Jennifer D, October 2013

I think they should include a morning tea break, it was long time to wait with families for xm afternoon snack.Reviewed by: Maree W, August 2013
So, I gave this tour only three stars. David was our driver, and while he was very nice, he really lacked enthusiasm. The van was on the smaller side and they squeeze 25 people into it. The seats were not comfortable and the air conditioning was not working great. Many of us kept asking David to turn it. (it was turned up, it just could not keep up)
As for the tour itself....it definitely was a way to see the North Shore if you do not plan on driving yourself. I thought some of the stops could have used more time. I would have liked more time at the Dole Plantation which is the last stop. We were very rushed with only 30 minutes. Funny, because they start the tour at every stop saying please be back to the van on time, because we want to make sure we get to the Dole Plantation when it is open! If they know it closes at a certain time, why not start the tour earlier?
I think the highlight of the day is seeing the "sea turtles" on the beach. Beware of all the slow traffic and congestion around this area. I would not have minded if I was in a nicer van with air conditioning working!
