Was an interesting trip. I liked the Japanese temple and the sights of the island. I hoped to have spent more time at Dole. It was insanely crowded there when we arrived. There was no time to get a pineapple treat since the lines were so insane. I wished it would have been planned so that it was less crowded there. We had lunch at a ranch which was ok as well. Driver was knowledgeable. Maybe a bit too chatty at times. He was nice. We had a good time. Pearl Harbor was interesting
This tour included hidden extras that were not advertised. Pearl Harbour was amazing. My only complaint would be that the time spent here was definitely not long enough. This part of the tour was extremely rushed and you did not have spare time to look around at everything. We made several stops - at a lookout with breathtaking views, macadamia nut factory free samples, the most beautiful gardens inside the valley of the temples memorial park, kualoa ranch for lunch stop - do not recommend the buffet as it wasn't the greatest food for the price - do have a snack bar, Dole plantation try the pineapple ice-cream small serve only very sweet, and turtle bay. Our expert driver was Frank. Our tour guide was Ed an older gentleman with expert knowledge, personality and a great sense of humour. This day out was fabulous and I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone.
Three stars mainly for the tour company, Polynesian Adventures. We planned an all day tour of Pearl Harbor and the Circle Island Day tour for the one day we were in Oahu. We called the tour company at 6:45 7:30 pick-up to verify pick-up location. They verified and then called us back in 5 minutes telling us that tour was cancelled due to lack of participation and we could choose another - like the harbor and the Missouri tour instead. We did since they gave us no choice for same day and then were told pick-up in 20 minutes instead of 7:30. We made it. Pearl Harbor was outstanding and moving. The Missouri was mostly a dull waste of time. Totally missed the island. Next time and we recommend for you have several tour companies that offer the same/similar tours lined up to use if your tour company lets you down. Viator is great to explore options but line up alternatives outside them. If they had just let us know a day or so ahead, we could have found another option to see what we wanted to see. Disappointed.
