Loved this tour
, Feb 2020
This tour was worth every penny! Pua was our guide and she was super knowledgeable and a whole lotta fun! She went out of her way to show us as much as possible. Highly reccomend!
A great way to see the island!
, Dec 2019
We had a great guide named Pua (which means flower as she explained to us) and she was very animated and great with the group, calling us a family. She was very knowledgeable about the island having grown up there. We saw many different places and it was exactly what we were looking for to see parts of the island outside of where we were staying in Waikiki. I highly recommend this tour.
Great Value!

Eugene was very knowledgeable and courteous. Great all around view of Oahu including history & culture.
Exceptional guide!
, Oct 2019
The tour covered a lot of the island and was very informative. Our guide, Pualani with Enoa Tours, was exceptional. She was interesting, enthusiastic, and made the long day fun. Only downside is that we didn’t have enough photo stops, mainly because lack of parking for the mini bus.

Unfortunately our tour guide Donny was not very knowledgable and could not answer a lot of questions.
Waste of money rude tour guide
, Jun 2019
This tour is a waste of money. We had Pualani as our driver and tour guide. She was rude to my husband and I for taking 2 extra minutes at the restroom. She made sarcastic comments inside the bus in front of all the other 19 people in the tour. She spend to much time circulating the city that once you arrived to all the attractions it was only for 10,15, 20 mins.max. the lunch at Fumis was awful. Dry over fried shrimp, cold, out of a can corn. Terrible experience. You'll be better of renting a car and traveling on your own.
Great Outing!
, Jun 2019
Did this tour 1st thing after getting to Hawaii due to a friends recommendation. So glad we did! Great way to see the entire island and it’s cultural history. Our tour guide “Shortcake” was wonderful. This is the perfect way to start a Hawaiian vacation!

Lisa, our guide was spectacular! We were so lucky that she agreed to come in on Easter! She was so informative about the history of every stop we went to as well as the history of Hawaii. We had plenty of time at every stop except The Dole Plantation. There is just too much to do there so you’ll need to go back on your own time. Beautiful beach stops and a beautiful hike to Waimea Falls which Lisa did half way and explained the history to you. I would highly recommend this trip!!
Circle of Oahu from Waikiki
, Apr 2019
Our guide (Cousin) Lisa (Waikiki Trolley), was very friendly, knowledgeable & willing to answer questions one on one, Gave everyone more than enough time at each stop to take pictures and explore the sites, If you want to see the island of Oahu I would highly recommend this tour, & If possible Ask for Cousin Lisa.
Pickup time wrong.
, Dec 2018
The tour itself was great. The only glaring problem was that the time given to us for pickup was wrong. Thank goodness the tour people called us to find out where we were or we would have missed the tour. They told us they had a big problem getting Viator to publish the correct time.
