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.

Thank you for a good overall look at the beautiful island of Oahu. The first driver who serenaded us with his guitar set the mood for an awesome day. The second driver Donny was congenial and informative but talked a little to much about golf with certain passengers. I enjoyed the picture ops but some of the more important ones were photos through the window of the bus. We had a 5 minute look at pounders beach but I saw the north shore waves from the bus window and totally missed the turtles on the beach. I specifically came to Hawaii to see the giant waves and left not seeing them. Next time I would rent a car and see the beach at my leisure. We also missed the shrimp truck altogether. The lunch at pounders restaurant was excellent. The mahi mahi was so fresh and tasty. Also seeing the garden and the falls was a great in site to the island flora and fauna. Overall a very worthwhile day. Thanks.

Great guide, excellent narration, easy transportation, convenient tour times (8:45 a.m.-12-45 p.m.). I would definitely recommend this tour to those who are looking for a last-minute quick visit to the Arizona Memorial. We did not plan ahead and get free admission tickets online two months in advance and we were not interested in bringing our group out to Pearl Harbor at 7 to get the free daily tickets. E Noa Tours did all the work for us, picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, and gave us experienced information about the area and the memorial for just $40. E Noa no ka oi!

We had the privilege of having cousin "K" for our Pearl Harbor tour. She was knowledgeable and entertaining and gave us some great tips to enjoy our visit. We did the film and Arizona which also includes a couple of exhibit rooms. It was perfect to get the experience without spending all day.
