Pass By: Diamond Head State Monument, 18th Ave. Waikiki, Honolulu, Oahu, HI 96815

This iconic Waikiki landmark was formed 300,000 years ago when the volcano erupted. As these materials settled, they cemented together into a rock called tuff, creating the crater.

This was the best tour we’ve taken in a long time. Katie, our driver, was fantastic and talked almost nonstop filling us in on all kinds of historical and current day events. Everything was timed perfectly and the shave ice was delicious! I can’t recommend this enough.

A beautifully comprehensive day of the most photographic spots on Oahu, coupled with history, tips and suggestions, and the right amount of on and off for samples of Macadamia nuts, shaved ice or coffee, and the amazing Dole Whip Float. Katie was a fun and informative guide. We’ve traveled with many guides who run the range from dry lecture and recitation of facts to banal-silliness without content whatsoever. Katie not only knew her stuff, but knew it well. From geography to history, historic fact to legend, and the best spots for fun, recreation and food. Well worth every moment.

Our guide Dominic was superb, a lot of knowledge about almost everything in Hawaii. He presented almost non-stop during the entire 8~9 hours trip. And took the small group to some hidden agenda where we were so lucky to spot 2 sea turtles resting at the beach. It was a WOW experience and the wave was high so a lot of surfer doing amazing sport. We enjoyed a lot this tour and highly recommend to everyone.

Only 8 of us on this mini bus tour personalised the experience. Brice our driver and tour director was obliging, knowledgeable and good company. He was able to tweak the tour to suit our choices. The tour itself was as promised and it was good to see the Oahu countryside outside of Waikiki. Box of chocolates at tours end was a bonus!

This was the most amazing day! The highlight of our trip. Bryce was our guide. He is so knowledgeable. He Timed everything perfectly. He took us to a remote spot to see the sea turtles that not too many people know about and we saw at least twenty, it was incredible! We avoided long lines and tasted the best island food. I didn’t want the day to end. We met a wonderful mom traveling from New Zealand with her two daughters and we learned a lot about their culture as well. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!!!!!!

We had a great Circle Island Trip. It turned out there was only 4 of us plus driver, I think her name was Katy. She gave us a great narrative explanation of all places around the island. Explained in detail plus of all attractions.

On 1 May, my spouse and I took the Oahu Circle tour. Our guide Bryce did a wonderful job. He was very knowledgeable about the island, culture, and language as well as humorous. I would recommend him highly to anyone visiting the island.
• Submitted 13 May 2019
Highly recommended tour to see the main sights of the island. Stopped everywhere I wanted to see plus a couple of extras. The small group tour was an excellent choice as it was more friendly and easy to chat to others. Bryce was very knowledgable and helpful.

Bryce was our tour guide. He was excellent. Very friendly and seemed to know all about the island. He could answer any questions we had and he knew where to go and how to get quick service for lunch. Food was great too. This tour touched many points of interest. We were limited on days so this was an excellent tour to see the island. I highly recommend this tour.

Brice was our guide and we couldn’t have had a better chauffeur and guide! He took us to the best spots, pre-ordered our lunch and brought it to us. We had the best turtle viewing, too! We would take this tour again and ask for Brice. Rick and Anne

Bryce was absolutely amazing, simply awesome. Give this man a raise. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything that we saw and it’s history.

Bryce is our tour guide that day. He is on time, very knowledgeable and talks a lot during the trip, so there is no dull moment. We spent just enough time for our lunch and great places in Oahu/ Honolulu. The weather was perfect that day. It’s a great experience!!!

Very well organised and run tour. Our driver was Bryce who, my friend and I, found to be very informative about Oahu and Hawaii culture and traditions and also about the sights which we visited. We were a group of 12 people from all different parts of the world who toured in a small minibus and we all got along. Our trip was memorable and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was kind to us as well. Excellent tour and I was recommend this tour to anyone. I should think it is much better than a large busload of people. Bryce was very adaptable, entertaining us along the way with his knowledge.

We went on this tour as a couple and met 7 other people. It was a great tour, a fantastic group of people and our driver / tour guide Katie was terrific. The mini van was in excellent condition. The highlight for me was the lunch stop at the shrimp vendors. If you don't like shrimp there were plenty of other options. The Dole Pineapple Plantation and the Macadamia nut farm were also highlights. Every stop was well worthwhile and we were given sufficient time to not only take photos and explore the stop, but also use the facilities. I would happily do this tour again next time I'm in Oahu because it is so worthwhile
