Great way to get a feel for the island when time is limited. Tour driver/guide Ed was cheerful, informative, and experienced. Glad we took this tour.

we took the tour in a mini bus there were 14 people on the tour. the tour guide was very good, he explained a lot while we were driving. the Arizona memorial was great and the tour around the island was worth the price. I would highly recommend this tour.

Everyone who goes to Hawaii for the first time should go to Oahu. I think it would be unamerican to do otherwise. I don't think one can visualize the devastation and lost of life until they actually see the memorial. i would have liked to see the submarine but my husband was too tall.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. We saw a great variety of places on this tour and were glad we decided to take a guided tour. We learned so much more than we would have if we'd have rented a car. Well worth it!
P.S. Also, much appreciated that our bus had a wheelchair lift that was in top working condition.

This is a great tour of Oahu island and sites including the famous Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial. We had a small bus with a small group so easy to travel. Our driver Ben started with early morning pickups and changed the tour based on traffic patterns to visit the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout first in the morning instead of at the end of the day. Great decision as no one was at the lookout and we have the place to ourselves to view Oahu from the top of a mountain. We then visited the highlight of the tour at the USS Arizona Memorial. I recommend adding the audio tour to your visit so you can hear commentary aout the war and the events at Pearl Harbor while you look at the artifacts (and read many plaques). Go to the souvenier shop last on your tour as you do not want to miss any of the muesems or the time on the memerial. We visited a Macadamia Nut Farm shop for coffee/nut tastings and stopped at this amazing replica Japanese Byodo-In Temple. I've been to this temple in Japan and it appears very similar so many great photo ops at the temple, gardens, massive koa,peacocks. We stopped at a Ranch where Jurasic Park was filmed to eat lunch (buffet or menu on your own). For lunch we preferred the menu items which were good. Three opportunities to eat lunch is the Arizona Memorial, Ranch, and Dole stops. We visited the North Shore Sunset Beach where we had great Hawaiian Ice and viewed the beaches and surf. Last stop was the Dole Plantation which had great Dole Whip (ice cream) with pineapple topping (yummy). Mostly a tourist stop to see pineapples and buy food and gifts. Highly recommend this tour as you see the majority of Oahu without driving.

We had a wonderful trip. It started and ended the best way we could hope for. I had made a mistake in bucking the wrong tour. I called the 800 number and spoke with the BEST person you could ask for. Celeste, heard my mistake and said she would do what she could, keep in mind this was around 4:30PM the day before the tour. Celeste made things work for us. She in my opinion is the best ad you could have for our future use of this company. Thanks for making this tour a great one which includes the our driver and the entire tour. Worth the time and money. Thanks again to Celeste! I would give a 5 star rating

This was a well organised day. Pearl Harbor experience was informative and fantastic especially meeting two pearl harbor survivors. Our Circle Island Day Trip was great. Our tour was small group and our driver funny and informative. We enjoyed the scenic drive around the famous beaches, lunch option was well priced with great variety, nut tasting and our pineapple ice cream at the pineapple plantation heavenly. Overall a great and enjoyable day.
