Picked up at a nearby Waikiki hotel and spent a scenic, enjoyable, & informative tour from Waikiki beach along the south & east coastlines of Oahu with various stops for those photo oops, stretch, and potty breaks. The first RR break was at a gift shop with time to buy souvenirs. A couple more beach stops before a shrimp lunch break that was decent enough at $15 + a drink. There was a large cooler stocked with canned drinks & water along with a box of snacks our friendly driver kept well stocked throughout. There was a 90-min. stop to swim, sun, &/or snorkel on the north coast. Wasn’t the best snorkeling spot by far. Stopped at a Macadamia nut farm before the final 40 min. pause at the Dole plantation (Try the Dole Whip!)! Fun day learning & seeing beautiful Oahu!

We booked the all day Grand Circle Island Tour and things got off to a VERY rocky start. Despite getting the email confirmation the day before, we were supposed to be picked up at 8 and at 8:30 no one had us on their rosters. We called at 845 and were told they were just behind due to traffic. At 9, we received a call that the driver had already made the pickup but due to a glitch in the system we were left off the roster. The woman I initially spoke with was TERRIBLE and only offered to rebook a different day, which would not have worked at all.

We did get a call from the manager, Robert, within 5 minutes and he had a solution and corrected this within 15 minutes. Our driver, Nate, was phenomenal and took the time to make sure we got the most out of this island tour. Be sure to call the day before to really make sure things are 100% booked and there won't be issues. But if there are any issues, Robert will do everything he can to rectify the situation.

Aloha Audrey, yes yes, we definitely did turn some lemons into some great-tasting lemonade... Nate had a blast with you two. I'm so glad that we were able to make things right with you due to a computer glitch with our manifests. We really appreciate the time it took for you to share your experience with us.

This tour is an absolute must, especially if this is your first time to Oahu! Our tour guide Milo was amazing! Throughout the tour he provided great bits of information regarding the island and the Hawaiian people, and was very entertaining and funny the whole way though.

They provided cold waters and juices as well as some chips/snacks. If you’re looking for a tour to get to know the island, this is the one to take. Hopefully you get Milo as your guide!

Have your tour guide be knowledgeable about the tour. He can joke but he should pick his jokes based oh his audience! He should be mindful of his actions and words! The tour was mainly just driving around stores! They make you stop for an hour to snorkle to a beach thats full of sharp rocks, no where no sit and its just a crappy area they stop us! Please do not order the food where Darren passes the menu and takes your order! The food is expensive, not good and unsanitary! Just wait til you stop at the dole plantation which is the next stop after. They have better food and more conducive to eat.

My wife and I joined a group on 8/27 (with Mario leading the tour). The tour was informative and fn. WE did stop at all of the set stops (which i hear some tours don't do). They tour proved to be attentive to the group's priority stops (adjusted the time spent at each stop, less time at the "usual" places more turtle time. We highly reccomend.

The tour was so much fun.Our tour guide Mario was wonderful. The tour was on a small intimate van. Do yourself a favor a skip the big passenger bus tour. We toured the island and were able to personalize it to our group.

From my pick up(which I was unfortunately late to) to my tours completion, I had the best experience of seeing the island possible. Mr. Milo was awesome as a tour guide and even better story teller. I'm glad to say my first day on the island was a day ill never forget thanks to him. I will say the lunch offered really wasn't great at all and I frankly would've been fine without it and the snorkeling location wasnt the greatest(due to currents)or most timely( you need at least 2hrs)All of the stops were great otherwise and a very nice start to my first visit to the island. I only wish i couldve spent more time talking to Mr. Milo, he truly is a special peron. Mahalo

Cousin Rosie and Uncle Sonny were amazing guides and hosts. The shuttle was comfortable with soft seats and AC. Provided unlimited snacks and drinks all day. Great way to learn and see the island. Avoided driving in all the traffic. Bonus stop on way home. Awesome day.
