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, 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” – is 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.

Pearl Harbor tour. The bus picked us up at the hotel so no driving was necessary. The drive provided a lot of history information about the islands and how they came to be what they are today. The drive also provided good information about the memorial. Other then the rain it was a great tour.

Excellent driver/guide. Looked after us very well from pick up to drop off. Had a good knowledge of Pearl Harbor but left us with the tour guides on the USS Missouri. They were excellent. Probably the best and most convenient way to tour the harbour, with a nice city tour at the end.

KC our tour guide was outstanding! We had the most enjoyable tour going all around the island of Oahu (10 hour tour). We loved every minute of the wonderful sites, history and cultural parts of the island. Ideal for families- we had a children aged 8 and 12 and they loved it just as much as us :)

My wife & I felt the driver was curt & rather rude to us. Partiality was evident. She did give some factual info in between citing personal info. We gave her a tip because we live in Las Vegas & realize tips are important to one’s livelihood. The driver didn’t say good bye or thank you when we gave her a tip.She thanked others who gave her tips. She mentioned she has done tours for many years. Perhaps she needs to work on being professional & impartial.
