This is a great tour to see all the highlights of Honolulu in one full day. Our driver, Ernel was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his native Hawaii and every stop proved interesting without any hard selling which can be associated with full day tours.

This was a full day excursion. We flew from Maui to Oahu. Every piece of this trip was well planned and delivered. From the flight out of Maui to the bus drive around Honolulu to the USS Arizona memorial, Everything was excellent. We especially liked our driver and tour guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable about all of the history of not only things on the tour, but Hawaaii in general. Comfortable bus ride with lots of photo ops and stops along the way. Was a very tiring and long day, but it is the only way to experience all that this tour offers in such a short amount of time. Could not recommend higher !!

This tour lasted nine hours on some of the most treacherous, unpaved, unsafe roads we have ever been on. For the adventurous and with a true love of flora and fauna I would say do it. If you don’t then skip it. Our driver Travis was an excellent driver. He did at times get a little insulting when we didn’t know the answers to some of his questions. Also the last half hour he played CDs of his family singing. They’re very good but after nine hours on a bus you could not appreciate it.

Thank you Frank for a wonderful day trip. Thank you also for going out of your way to chase up our booking the morning of the tour when we didn't appear on your manifest of passengers. If not for you we would have been left high and dry. The trip was fantastic and everything ran so smoothly. No lines to queue up in during the incredibly busy holiday period. Your running commentary was informative and we loved your sense of humour. So glad you were our guide on the side for the day. Exceptional service.
