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.

This was all day activity and we were picked up and dropped off at our condo which was great. Our guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable, helpful and kind. He was great with the kids. Felt very safe with vehicle and driver. Awesome tour and would definitely do it again and use them for any other tours they offer.

We should have been told before booking that the Arizona Memorial was closed. Everything else was fine. We spent a lot of money to not see the Memorial. The Missouri tour was very good.

My son and I did a day trip to Oahu on our Maui vacation. He’s a huge history buff and I couldn’t not take him to Pearl Harbor. Our guide Reynold (who insisted on calling me uncle) could not be more accommodating. He pointed out everything from the historical sites, the local highlights, and knew exactly how all of it related back to Hawai’ian history. His insight should be praised above all. Reynold is such a repository of knowledge and fun that I feel as if I’d have missed out if I didn’t get him as a guide. We had to leave the tour early to catch our flight back to Maui and Reynold even called us to make sure we made it. I would be remiss if I did not speak to it here. Mahalo brodda!

During my time in Hawaii, I had two different tour guides. Cousin mike for my Pearl Harbor tour and he was great. He had our entire tour having a great time, having conversations with the customers and teaching everyone not only all about Pearl Harbor but Oahu. My second tour was an island tour and we had cousin Fred who was great as well. Cousin Fred sang songs, played the guitar, taught all of us so much about Hawaii. He made the entire tours fun. These two drivers were the best tour guides anyone could ask for. I highly recommend E Noa tours if in Hawaii.
