I wasn't quite sure what I signed up for, but I'm sure glad I did. It was great trip to Pearl Harbor with one of the best tour guides I have ever had, somewhat interactive and very amusing. At Pearl Harbor we were only give 1.5 hours to do everything before our return ride would be leaving. (We ended up driving back to Pearl Harbor on our own to view the museums we didn't have a chance to see). Our ride back was with a nice gentleman, who continued the informational tour with some awesome and very interesting facts! Would definitely recommend this tour!

Tip: It's a couple of hours round trip and we didn't have a lot of time to view all of Pearl Harbor

"A wonderful Tour"
February 2018
We loved the tour, in large part because our guide, Kanoe, was so knowledgeable about the history of the area and everything we saw. I am sure other guides are great, too. She clearly explained how the visit to the Arizona would go, and where we needed to be and when. It made the trip go so smoothly. Seeing the historic sites was very interesting, includng a drive through Punchbowl cemetary. Would highly recommend this tour!

Zero Stars!!! We made reservations with this company for a much anticipated trip to celebrate a college graduation. I made the reservations well in advance and then came the Corona Virus. We were forced to cancel our reservations because of the pandemic. I was assured that we would receive a refund for our tour but that they would have to wait to see if we could receive a refund for the air fare. I was instructed to call back two weeks later to confirm. When I did this the representative stated that I WOULD be receiving a full refund including air fare and it would be in my account within 30 days. After this time passed and I didn't receive the refund I called back. They tried to say they could not find my name or reservation in the system. They said I must have made my reservation with 'Aloha Sunshine Tours' instead of Discover Hawaii Tours. I then went back to my confirmation email and typed in Aloha Sunshine Tours to go to the website, low and behold it took me to Discover Hawaii Tours. A little sketchy for sure!. I was able to find a phone number for Aloha Sunshine Tours and left multiple voice mails and messages with the answering service and they said they would have the manager call me return call. When I called the number again (probably for the 30th time) the number went to Discover Hawaii Tours and the representative again said that he could not find my name or confirmation number. I asked him why the number I called would ring at a different business and he said that they were all out of the office and may have forwarded calls to him. I explained to him what my issue was and he instructed me to call my bank and try to get my money back that way. That is what I did and after investigation my bank said they were told that this company does not offer any refunds. Needless to say I lost $1400.00 that could be spent on many other things, simply due to a pandemic and a bogus company. Do not book with these people!

This was our 2nd time on the Waikele outlet buses and not impressed! It seems this time the drivers were family members of the owners....didn’t explain anything on the way there re the destination passports (which passengers are entitled to for extra discounts) to the passengers who had never been before and when dropped off just said pick up here. Then on way back just dropped us off in Waikiki and when asked why not dropping us off where we were picked up from said need to get another shuttle. In the bus the driver said he couldn’t wait to get to the beach and I guess that was more important than dropping us at our destination which is pretty bad service.

Tour was ok our tour guide was good very knowledgeable on the Hawaiian history which was interesting. We booked with Discover Hawaii tours but ended up with Aloha Sunshine Tours I am guessing there is some relationship between them. There was a lot of points on the trip which I thought we were stopping at but just drove by like Haleiwa Town etc. I think the idea was for us to have lunch there but as there was only 3 people on our tour we were running ahead of time so we’re there early but I thought we may have still stopped for a look about the town and shops. We had lunch at Waimea falls as had some time but didn’t realise that we could have had lunch at the north shore food trucks if we knew they were still to come. But drove past. Overall I think the excellent knowledge of the driver with the history of each area was really good.
