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.

"Circle Island & Pearl Harbor"

This tour is amazing for people who want to get out of Waikiki and see the rest of Oahu. We saw so many beautiful beaches, had a great complimentary lunch and got to try Dole Whip! Our tour guide Rockie was so kind and taught us so much more than we learned at the Pearl Harbor memorial, he is very knowledgeable. If you can, ask for Rockie to be your guide!

We had a wonderful, informative tour of Pearl Harbor, the Arizona and Missouri Memorials, the Punch Bowl Cemetery and the entire city of Honolulu! I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the sights add history of the area!

Cousin Fred was lots of fun and informative-really knew a lot about pearl Harbor. It was a misty day but still enjoyable. Loved the Dole Plantation stop/whip but took awhile as there was lots of high school or college kids there. Saw lots of beaches-loved Pounders for our lunch stop. Would definately recommend this company for tours

"Tour Guide or Ohana?"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 23, 2019 NEW
Sometimes you meet people and leave grateful for the services they provided as they were professional and represented their employer's name beyond expectations. But, it's a rarity that someone can exceed this status to the extent that you meet them and leave grateful to know their individual name and to have felt you truly shared an experience together. Our guide, Anastasia, shared a great experience with our family as our guide/driver! Her Hawaiian knowledge was un-matched as a guide, she taught us some pidgin to help us better understand the locals, she informed us of both tourist and local spots with the best foods, and recommended fun things to do around Oahu. Furthermore, she helped a woman with her shopping bags and child stroller then gave up her seat so the woman would be more comfortable. In our relatively short experience together, Anastasia embodied aloha, and - above all else - introduced my family to the Hawaiian ideology of ohana. We left the bus as if we were leaving a great friend and that feels amazing when you're military and so far from everyone you know on the mainland. If you are lucky enough to have her as a guide, you'll definitely agree that it was an amazing experience surpassing your expectations of a simple bus tour.

"Great tour guide, disappointing attraction"

Reviewed March 22, 2019 NEW
With the USS Arizona Memorial being closed to visitors, the Pearl Harbor is still great, but I can’t help feeling disappointed. Don’t know when my family and I will be biding Oahu again. Our tour guide, Shannon O’Brien, was excellent, very knowledgeable, I learned a great deal of Hawaiian history from him.
