We had the best tour guides/drivers on our trip to Hawaiian Islands. Our favorite was Ben E. on Oahu for 3 days.. Tai on Maui, and day we left for airport Grand Circle was last tour before we left Honolulu which was Tito. They are all professionals and know the history of the Islands better than we could have expected.

"Great Line - Polynesian Adventure Tours WWIi Pearl Harbor Tour a Total Rip-off"

My family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) took the WWII Peal Harbor Heroes Adventure Tour, which ran from 7:45 AM to 5 PM. At @ $158.00/pp, this was a pricey day, but I had been looking forward to an in-depth, all day tour hitting all of the highlights of the Pearl Harbor site. Beware: this is NOT a tour at all. Basically, you meet a bus driver and a liasion from Polynesian Adventures. They drive you to Pearl Harbor and get timed tickets for you, but that is it. There is no "tour" at all provided by Polynesian Adventure Tours. They basically just drive you to Pearl Harbor and then give you your tickets and tell you where to go next, but they are NOT tour guides. I was hugely disappointed and felt completely ripped off.

We visited the big island as part of a scuba diving trip. We decided to fly to Oahu to experience and pay respects to Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor and the USS Missouri tours are fantastic! However, the Polynesian Adventure Tour company not so much. Our driver was friendly and seemed to know a lot but was constantly calling the island the “cement jungle” and complaining about the cost of living and how the island has changed. While I understand the disappointment she must have, this experience will keep me from ever visiting that island again. We were constantly told how much this house or that condo cost and that they used to have this or that business but it was closed now. If you do go with them make sure you buy water and snacks. We fly in and we’re picked up at 8:30 am but didn’t get to sit for lunch until 3:00 pm. Our only food options were little shops inside Pearl Harbor of the USS Missouri so touristy unhealthy foods. I would expect the company could have water and snack bars on the van if you’re not able to stop until 3:00 for a real meal.

My family and I did a day trip from Oahu to Maui to do the Road to Hana Tour. It was fantastic. They organized everything including shuttle to and from the airport to our Hawaiian airline flight. Lee, our tour guide, was amazing and his skillful driving allowed us to to see all of the Road to Hana. And if his driving wasn’t impressive enough on this curvy road, his knowledge of the island and island’s history was amazing. We did a full circle (including not so paved raods). Breakfast was included for us. The new Mercedes can was awesome with built in cooler and USB so we could charge our phones. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Reviewed February 17, 2019
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY AND WOULD NOT USE THEM AGAIN! We booked this expensive tour four days ahead. We walked to the designated pick up point 10 minutes ahead of the appointed time and waited and ....waited. After about 40 minutes we walked back to our hotel tour desk who then rang the company to be told the tour had been cancelled! We were told they had tried to ring our mobile and had also left a message in our room, which was a lie! There was no message left! By this time all the other tours had already left and we had no more spare days to book another tour. VERY UNIMPRESSED AND DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS COMPANY!- they could have easily NOTIFIED US BEFOREHAND through the hotel as we had booked the tour through the hotel tour desk.
