Limited time so opted for this full day trip. Very enjoyable. Excellent guide in Tommy Chong. He started the tour by handing out a map of the island with many of our stops listed. This made it easy to track progress during the day. Actually just 8 stops including the lunch stop. When booking had option of including buffet lunch or doing lunch on own. We chose lunch on own. The cafe we had lunch at had a number of choices. My sister had fish and chips. My brother had a hotdog. I had garlic shrimp. All enjoyed. Tommy's commentary full of info on film locations, housing prices and Hawaiian history. One of the highlights was stop at Byodo-in temple.

Our tour guide Leo was fantastic! It was 140 mile tour of Oahu which included all the picturesque sites. Lunch was at the Kualua Ranch after the tram ride which was not included in original tour but was very good and not too pricey. Leo is well versed on the history and culture of the island since he is native to the land. Recommend definitely to take this tour,but it is a very long day ..9 hours...the tour guide makes it fun and educational. Great experience!
