This is an incredible tour, so much to see, never a dull moment and a great oversight of Oahu. Our guide Felix was amazing, while waiting for everyone to join back on the bus he would serenade the guests with his Ukulele, this made what was already a great trip even more special. The Dole plantation was busy, but Felix told us where to go to be able to see and get what we wanted. Stops were frequent, and worthwhile, including the Kualoa Ranch was cool, and across the road was the Chinaman's hat. And the temple was spectacular. If you want to see a bit of everything, experiencing so much, then this is the trip for you, highly recommended.

This is my 8th time to visit the Arizona Memorial… I always take visiting family members to the Arizona Memorial for a history lesson. Everyone needs to know what caused America to enter World War II, because if we don’t know then history may repeat itself.

Great Tour Guide “Juice”. He made the trip very entertaining and enjoyable. Pearl Harbour was very sobering but a definite must see. All in all, a great experience

The tour guide was very helpful with the history of the island and knew great locations throughout the journey.

Our guide was excellent. Enjoyed the tour overall.
