Description

from Majestic Circle Island
As you set off for Oahu’s South Shore and the familiar outline of Diamond Head, enjoy stories and island history shared by your guide enhancing each stop and view: the tropical fish and reefs of Hanauma Bay; famous Halona Blowhole; scenic Sandy Beach; and spectacular Makapu’u Lookout on the island’s southeastern tip.

As you head towards Oahu’s Ko’olau Mountain Range, views from the windswept Nu'uanu Pali Lookout are picturesque as your guide brings to life tales of ancient battles fought there. You'll also visit the peaceful, serene grounds of the Byodo-In Buddhist Temple, nestled in a green gem of a valley. Ringing the temple’s Peace Bell is said to ensure happiness and a long life.

Dropping down to Oahu’s North Shore, quaint towns and a laid-back local scene provide the backdrop to world famous surfing beaches – Banzai Pipeline, Sunset and Waimea Bay. The famous Waimea Falls lays behind lush rainforest, where you stroll among the thousands of varieties of exotic plants, unique species of Hawaiian birds, and archeological sites of Oahu’s historic Waimea Valley. This stop is a favorite because of “the beautiful scenery the valley has to offer and the peaceful sounds of birds and water flowing from the falls.”

Dole Plantation provides the day’s final stop on this ultimate Oahu Circle Island Tour. A cool frozen pineapple whip or sweet fresh pineapple – a real “Taste of Hawaii” – are hard to resist as you pick up a souvenir or two.

"Not worth it, especially for single traveler"
December, 2015
I was bumped because they wanted to sell another ticket. Messed up my vacation schedule so I missed other things later. Two of the stops are just for you to buy things-nothing much to see. Since I had a day to kill on my own, I saw three of the major stops on the shuttle for a lot less money - I was hoping to have more time or better access on the more expensive tour but did not. Very dissatisfied.

The driver was good and informative but he talks wayyyyy to much. I thought it would have been better to spend more time at the Pearl Harbor then the mighty mo. After the mighty mo we had to wait another hour before we could leave. I would have liked to spend more time at the Pearl Harbor due to all the little details we missed and would have liked to see, but it's okay we still had fun and the driver was nice and funny just talked wayyyy to much and we were exhausted after the trip a little quiet time would have not hurt.

This was the second time we had been on one of these tours around Oahu but the first with E Noa tours. Our tour guide Bill was a wealth of information on every aspect of the places along the tour route & also very knowledgeable on the countries that ourselves & the other passengers came from. He also had a very good sense of humour which made everyone relaxed & we all had a great time. I enjoyed this tour more than the last because of the fewer people (30) on the smaller buses used, which allowed us more time at some stops along the way. My only disappointment was that we were looking forward to spending time at the Dole Plantation to see the beautiful gardens & of course have a Dole Pineapple Whip icecream but we only had 1/2 an hour here as a previous stop was given 1 1/2 hours duration. We only just had enough time to queue for the icecream & quickly look around the retail area. Dole plantaion requires an hour. Overall a good tour.
