Our guide/driver was great. The over all tour was good but not sure I would suggest this tour to anyone. Extremely disappointed in the Kualoa ranch and Dole plantation. Knew we wouldn’t have time for any real tour at the ranch but thought we’d see something. It was only a stop to eat. Wish tour description had said that. The time at the Dole plantation was so short that by the time we got some dole whip it was time to go.(of course you want to try it) I was very disappointed. The other sights etc were very nice but wished We’d taken a different tour and went to the ranch and plantation separately.

Nice Island Tour
Maurice_M

Despite rainy weather, this was a fun and fairly insightful tour. I'm only taking away one star due to a problem involving passenger pickup. I freely admit that I overlooked that the pickup spot was in back of the hotel rather than in front, which led to us having to take a taxi to catch the bus at the next stop, but I have been on tours where I was running late, or couldn't find the exact pickup location, and the driver or guide called my cell to see if I were still doing the tour, or if I were lost; so, rightly or wrongly, that's the level of 'in the field' customer service I expect on a tour (at least to earn five stars).

Great for the price.

This is a great way to see most of the island in one day. I recommend doing this tour in the beginning of your stay so that you can e which parts of the island you will want to visit for a longer time. Each stop was pretty short and some places we just drove by. I would of liked more time at the Dole plantation. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. Overall great for the price.
