Polynesian Adventures with tour guide/driver Kimo was fantastic.
Sail Date: March 2019
Polynesian Adventures with tour guide/driver Kimo was fantastic. We learned so much about the island, saw its beauty and learned much about Hawaiian Culture from him.

Took a while to get clear of Honolulu but then we had beautiful scenery, and an informative tour. Stopped at several famous beaches and other noted sites including a Shinto shrine. The Dole Plantation was crass commercialization.

Sail Date: August 2015
Overall trip around the entire island. Saw many different sights. Our driver was excellent. You make lots of short stops to take pictures, etc. so you may feel rushed at times but you see so many different sights this way.

We bought our USS Arizona tickets online (before we left home) so we would be sure to get to go. After touring Pearl Harbor and the Arizona, my friend picked us up and gave us a private tour of Oahu. She is Hawaiian and grew up here and now winters here. We went to the Punchbowl Cemetery and then almost all the way around the island. She showed us places where she had lived and things she had done when she was a kid. A very special tour. Read Less

This was a 1/2 day trip on Saturday before we boarded the cruise ship. Our guide, Cody, took us to the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout. Very beautiful & many chickens all over. He told us how in 1992 a hurricane knocked over chicken coops & the chickens were set free on the island. There are no predators for the chickens. As a joke he told us we could take home as many as we wanted. We then went to the Kualoa ranch. Learned about the ranch & Hawaiian history. took a short walk thru trees to a beach & had a boxed lunch. Very relaxing. On Saturday, after the cruise was over we choose the South Shore Sea Cliffs trip before going to the airport. This was on a Double Decker bus. Mistake! NCL was disorganized & the trip started late. The scenery to the South Shore & Diamond Head was nice, but the final stop was at the Sea Life Park. We saw a nice Dolphin show, but would have preferred to have spent the time, 1 & 1/2 hours, seeing more scenery. This was not mentioned in the description of the excursion. Do not recommend this trip. Read Less

We caught a tour bus for The South Shore of Oahu Sightseeing Tour! I love tours where I get to set back and relax and not drive. This was a spectacular tour of Oahu and we really got to see a lot of the island. However we will never book another excursion where you join another excursion halfway through. Several seats were occupied by a single member (young kids) of a family of 6 and we were stuck with the only seat left which was over a wheel well. That is reason for the low rating, not the beautiful scenery that we saw. Read Less

I took this tour primarily because it was the only one that went to the Byodo In Temple. The temple is stunningly beautiful; great for photos. We stopped at the tourist trap that is the Dole pineapple plantation and we stopped at a family-run macadamia farm. The tour is basically a long bus ride, looking at the countryside and shore. We did get a bonus, though. We were there during the triple crown surfing championship, and our driver was accommodating enough to stop for a bit so we could watch. Really neat experience. Read Less
