This was a perfect way to see oahu! My mom and I came here for vacation! It was my moms second visit and my first visit here and I wanted to see as much as we could. Oahu is beautiful and there’s so much to see but this tour allows you to explore and not have to worry about the commute or transit. You hope on an air conditioned bus and just enjoy the ride. Our driver Jensin was so great, he was extremely knowledgeable and he took us to every spot listed on the schedule. If I had to choose a favorite spot it would either be the Byodo-In Temple or the Nu’unau Pali lookout point. This is a great tour for anyone! A family, group of friends and solo if you want!
It was so much fun!
Tommy was happy and fun. We made a few extra stops. Get the ice-cream at the first stop. we had Macadamia nut, banana chocolate swirl, and pineapple. AMAZING!! Dole pineapple farm was HUGE and glad we didn't have to make the trip in our rental car. We were able to decide what we wanted to spend time doing after seeing the island on this tour. Hanauma Bay to go snorkeling was 1! and it was amazing. This tour doesn't take you to the North Shore, so make time to do that.
Tommy Chen was an excellent tour guide/historian/trivia buff. I understand some of the stops are for the benefit of the local businesses,however, the Kualo Ranch ride was lackluster. I did not eat at the buffet so I have no idea if the food made the stop more inviting. Overall, it was a very comfortable tour of the island.
Unfortunately this was not the best Viator tour we have taken. Most stops were at shops where the obvious intention was that we purchase something. One of the stops was in this little town in the middle of nowhere where a tourist would never stop. Lunch at the Ranch was disappointing a just a big tourist trap to be honest. The most disappointing thing was the very brief stop on the North Shore at Sunset Beach, this is the real Hawaii and what we wanted to see. The tour guide Tommy was excellent although he could have talked just a little less. Overall we were disappointed with this tour.
