The tour guide and driver were amazing …Aka and uncle Sandy! They were friendly. Aka shared good stories with us and the history at every stop. We felt like family. He was funny and sang a few songs, it was beautiful. I definetly recommend this tour to get to know the island and then you’ll know places to go later on your own.

Sad tour
ADRIENNE_M, May 2024
Tour guide thought he was funny, pulling our leg (lying) to us so I gave up trying to figure out what was true or not. I was hoping for more information about the island, its people and history, not a boring comedy show of sometimes sexist and racist jokes. His response to most questions was “Google it.”
It was great to see most...
JAGRUTI_D, May 2024
It was great to see most attractions in a day. Free snacks and water was nice . Knowledgeable tour guide.

Jeremy was a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable and Informative. He made the tour very enjoyable despite the rain, but overall it was a great tour of the island. Great stops and beautiful scenery.
Fun Tour
Donna_M, May 2024
The Prince and Stewie were knowledgeable and so much fun. The Byodo Temple was beautiful and got to see a lot of sea turtles! 🥰
Lots of shops, not many sights
Kathleen_E, May 2024
There were parts of this tour that were really good and then there were a lot of shops. We had I think 9 stops, 5 of which were shops. I wouldn’t have minded so much if there was some information about the stop, as in tell me about coffee making instead of dropping me at the shop and telling me to be back in 5 mins. I fought my way through the giant pineapple shop for 10 mins before I managed to see an actual pineapple. The snorkeling and lunch were great, but I am not sure on some of the stories we were told. It was expensive for what we saw, I would recommend the tour to shoppers but not if you want to see any sights.

Tour was great. AKA was knowledgeable and fun, a good singer as well. Minus point : the beach is rocky and water is cloudy. Couldn't really see anything.
Wendy_T, May 2024
Lots of info and jokes, the guide was very knowledgable and a 4-6 time surf champion wooooow! The bus wasn't too full so it was easy to move from stop to stop.
A day to remember
Shirley_m, May 2024
Greeted by 2 smiling faces at Dukes statue. Bus comfy. Started our journey. Views spectacular. Jake was an amazing tour guide. Explained so much of the real Hawaii and its friendly people. His ukulele playing and shell blowing were both great. He could easily get a job in a band. My camera was working overtime as we drove along. Valley of the Temples was breathtaking. Swimming with turtles, unforgettable . Loved it. Yummy food stops. Driver superb. A day to remember. Thoroughly recommend.
Aka was the most...
BECKIE_V, May 2024
Aka was the most informative, entertaining and genuine host. So much information he shared not just about Oahu but about the Hawaiian culture. Loved it all.
Great tour on first day here
Lynette_H, May 2024
We got to see sea turtles and be in the water with them. Gorgeous views all around on the drive. Uncle D was very knowledgeable so we got lots of lessons on history and culture.
Amazing island tour!

Casey_B, Apr 2024
Our travel guide, Darren, was incredible. Such a wealth of knowledge. The trip was fast paced but I didn’t feel rushed and it was a great way to see lots of things at once. Highly recommend!
Excellent Land & Sea Trip - Must see & experience to get a taste of Hawaiian Hana. Mahalo!
Raymond_D, Apr 2024
The Tour Guide Jake, was very friendly & knowledgeable of all the venues that we visted, it was great to learn the Hawaiian Culture and philosphy of their daily live; the efforts to live as one with mother earth is possible. The Byodo Temple and gardens were beautiful as well as the waterfalls were breathtaking. The beaches were exquiste, I was surprised by a turtle that swam along my side. The entire East & North Side of the Island was beautiful, waves crashing into rocks, the sun shining thru the Palm Trees was something out of a movie. Snacks were provided & the food we purchased was delicious. The bus was modern, we had a terrific driver (Uncle Victor) but we learned alot from Jake, I beleieve everyone was comfortable and he answered all questions.
Amazing and super fun!!
MaryJo_L, Apr 2024
The tour was amazing especially narrated by Dr D! He was extremely informative which made it perfect. Thank you so much! We were very lucky to have him!!!
Best part of our trip
Jorge_M, Apr 2024
The best part of our stay so far. Our guide Amelia was informed and patient with our group. Gave a very relaxed yet insightful view of the whole island. Loved getting to know everything from the island starting with the southwest side passing Waikiki, to the macadamia farm, to the Dole plantation. The snorkeling part was memorable as well, as we got to see some sea turtles. Would book again!
Getting to know the culture
Aimee_M, Apr 2024
It is very knowledgeable and I had a great time. My kids enjoyed it and my tour bus Lady was very knowledgeable about her history. I love that! Thank you for everything
Worth the money and the knowledge you leave with will stay with you forever!
Stephen_M, Apr 2024
Everything about the Island has meaning. The rain, sun, the dirt everything is planted in. Most importantly are the people!
Excellent tour!! We had a blast today!!
