A great day tour. Amazing to see the mountains up a little closer. Also the surfing beaches were amazing. A great way to see the whole island coastline. Our driver Wes was entertaining and had so much knowledge of the island.

Way too much time wasted at tourist traps and not enough spent at the actual interesting parts. No one wants to shop for nuts and chocolate. Spend that time better by giving more time at Dole or the Ranch.Bathroom on bus was not made available entire trip. Bus seats very uncomfortable.

I wanted an overview of the island. Lookouts were impressive. Could have done without nut and pineapple stops, which turned to be touristy shops pushing unwanted souvenirs. Big bus had freezing aircon. Took this long tour to see sites and Sunset Beach - very quick look at a pretty basic beach. Feel I could have done shorter tour.

We enjoyed this tour very much. Our tour guide/ bus drive Brandon was awesome and a true Hawaiian decent. He was full of knowledge and personality. We enjoyed every location but unfortunately didn't see as much of the Kualoa ranch and thought the tour covered the movie sites but was a quick tour and not part of the movie tour at all. The same with the Dole pineapple plantation , we only got to see a small part of the plantation and gift shop and thought we would have been doing a tour around the plantation, so a little disappointed. I would have given it five stars other wise. I would still like to say Brandon was a five star guide! Love your work Brandon!

This tour was okay gave us a good look around the island we had some people that came back to the coach about 15 minutes late which put our trip a little behind. We had a full coach of about 50 people i would suggest trying a smaller company some only take maybe 14 people. The smaller coach makes it easier to get into the little coves and out of the way places.
