“WORST EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Booked a trip to Pearl Harbor and the boat was having brief mechanical issues. Keep in mind this was the only reason we flew in for the day. The company was rude and was not willing to work with us in any way. They had no contingency plan for this type of issue and ultimately said there was nothing they could do.

“An amazing tour”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I cannot recommend this tour enough. I took the pearl harbour and circle island tour which makes for a long, but hugely enjoyable day. Our tour guide was Maurice and he was personable and friendly, but above all he went out of his way to ensure everyone had a great time. Maurice was very knowledgable and had an excellent sense of humour. For young women travelling alone I highly recommend this tour. I got to see around the whole island and felt really safe.
To top it all off I left my sunhat on the bus and the company was super friendly and helpful and had the hat returned to me quick smart. Thanks so much for a great tour!

“The Best Day of Our Trip”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Having been warned many tours are a tourist trap, we didn't know what to expect. We were So Glad that was wrong with Discover Hawaii Tours. Nancy was personable, knowledgeable and treated all of us as family. Amazed with all of the activities jammed packed in the day. Highlights included lunch on an island at Kualoa Ranch, macadamia nut farm(with Lots of samples!) and Waimea Falls Park. Seems expensive but Well Worth it! Highly recommended. Be prepared for a Full day as we didn't return until 7:30pm.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

We got this tour due to a recommendation and it lived up to its name. Our driver, Kauka was awesome! Definitely recommend him to all friends and family! We did the Eco circle tour. It was a long day but packed with sights, adventrures, swimming and everything else. Would definitely do this tour again!

“Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We visited Hawaii in July of 2014 and went on the Ultimate Circle Island Eco-Adventure and John was our tour guide and it was a wonderful experience. John was extremely knowledgeable and informative regarding the island and its history. He took us to all the hot spots and showed us wonderful views all around the island. Loved the tour and would recommend to anyone going to Oahu. We also traveled to The Big Island and did the Big Island Hawaii Volcano Eco-Adventure Tour which was a nice experience. This tour spent the majority of the time in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and didn't tour the majority of the island. Due to my lack of knowledge about volcanoes, we were disappointed that you can't see the actual red lava unless it is dark outside. Because we only traveled to the island for this tour, we did miss out on the lava. Again, a great time but I would definitely recommend the Oahu trip as it was very informative and covered so much of the island! Thank you Discover Hawaii Tours!
