Great one day trip with unbelievable great tour guide
Oct 2021
Guide Katie is really the highlight who makes this one day trip so pleasant and memorable. Not only is she very knowledgeable but also super friendly and helpful. She has a big heart too. She tailored guests’ need and we even spotted a few turtles under her special route planning, very exciting. I highly recommend anyone to book this one day trip to explore the beauty of Hawaii!

A bit of everything
Our host Dominik was very engaging and full of really cool, informative knowledge about the history of Hawai’i. We felt like each place we stopped was just enough time to get some pics and check it out. The van was clean and comfortable. It was nice for us as there was only 6 on our tour.

Nice tour
Jan 2020
This was largely a nice Tour, The Guide/Driver was great. We had a small group (8) and everyone got to know each other along the way. Our goal was to see various sights and learn more about Oahu. This was accomplished to some extent. I would have liked to see more of the North coast, but I could see that with crowds and traffic it would have been difficult. The lunch was at an open area with food trucks and outdoor tables and flies. The guide was very helpful with our orders and the shrimp and rice was okay, but not up to the "hype". The Macadamia nut farm was mostly just a gift shop but they did have free coffee and nut samples.The second to last stop seemed pointless to me. It was a small cluster of shops. Nevertheless, It was an enjoyable and informative day. I would recommend it.

Terrible customer service
Mar 2020 • Couples
Oahu circle tour was booked well in advance. The company was to contact me a day prior to the tour with details on a pickup location. I called Hawaii Outdoor Guides late in the day prior to the tour as I had received no call, text, or email. I was informed the tour had been cancelled. I was informed the company sends notice of cancellation out 72 hours before a tour. I had a record of texts, calls, and emails for that period with no record of contact with Hawaii Outdoor Guides. Their customer service was apologetic, but could not tell me how or if they had contacted me. There was no effort to rebook me on another tour. I realize errors happen and despite good reviews of their tours, I won’t use them again.

Will be back to Hawaii again. Now, I know what areas to hone in on when I come.

Thank you!!

10 out of 5 stars! This is the tour to take!
I researched at least 20 tours before choosing this one. I had high expectations for this tour and it exceeded them all! Great information about Hawaii's history and culture. The tour skips the lame tourist traps like Coral City and goes to the best sights. Our amazing guide Bryce gave great recommendations of where to go at each stop. He called our orders in advance for Giovanni's shrimp truck so we skipped the long line - btw the shrimp scampi lived up to the hype (bring cash as it's cash only). He pointed out whales at our scenic stops. I never felt rushed at any time. We went everywhere: Hanauma Bay, the Macadamian nut farm where you can taste samples of the sweets and coffee or grab a freshly cut coconut to sip on, Sunset Beach where we saw some of a paddle board competition, a park in the Northshore with amazing views of Chinaman's hat, Kualoa Ranch, another small beach where we saw two see turtles sunning themselves, a little town in Northshore where I got tiger's blood shaved ice, and lastly Dole pineapple plantation to taste delicious fresh pineapple. You aren't just a face in the crowd in this small intimate tour. The small group allowed for lots of time sightseeing instead of loading and unloading a giant bus or waiting on late people. I can't recommend it enough. And they give you a sweet gift at the end. Don't think twice about booking. You will thank yourself!

a little too much of a commercial venture
May 2018 • Couples
The tour guide/ bus driver was quite good. She knew a lot of history, but each stop was definitely meant to sell you something. She recommended something (must try the...) at each stop to eat or drink. The trip did hit highlights along the coast but the only thing you had time for at the pineapple plantation and the macadamia nut farm was to buy something. You did not see ANYTHING but the gift shops.

Aloha! Thank you for the time you took to write a review of our tour! I'm so happy that your tour guide knew a lot of history of the island. It also seems like you were happy to see the highlights. I wanted to respond to the comment that this tour has too many commercial stops: We instruct our guides to let our guests know what are the highlights of the stops. For many people visiting Hawaii these things are food so we mention what food is available at the stop and try hard to stress other things to see that don't include spending money. For example when we go to Dole pineapple plantation we mention that the Dole whip is popular but also the free pineapple cutting demonstration where you learn how to choose a ripe pineapple and cut it properly (with free samples), visit the Koi pond, see the pineapple garden, look at the painted eucalyptus and don't forget the restroom before we leave. Now we did mention the Dole whip because there is often a line and if we don't instruct our guests we might not be able have the time to order the popular dessert. This tour picks up guests from multiple spots in Waikiki around 8 am and don't have a stop where you can buy an item until about 10:30 am. We do our best to show you sights that are interesting and would be on your list if you went around the island but apologize if this felt too commercial to you. We list all of the sights where we stop so recommend that you look at the itinerary closely when choosing a tour. Come back to us with a private tour next time and we promise not to stop at a single place that offers items for sale. Mahalo for being our guest!

Don't think twice, this one's nice
Nov 2018 • Couples
This is a tour which gives a thorough overview of Oahu at a price which is unbeatable. If fortunate enough to get Bryce as your guide, you will be treated to a wealth of knowledge. We were picked up early in the day and from that moment on were in the hands of a man who is funny, natural and generous. We were a small group of four and very diverse in our activity levels, but no prob, Bryce was able to manage this with gracious aplomb. If you want a tour with depth of history about Hawaii, great rest stops with the best tips on where to visit, buy and eat, but not much time to explore, this is for you. The day flew by, and even hoaky was turned into fun with a sense of humor. When at the tourist trap Dole plantation, walk right through the store, get out back and explore the gardens in peace and solitude while the hordes are loading up on trinkets, candy and ice cream. You won't be sorry. Oh, and take his suggestion on getting the best shaved ice for 3 bucks that two people can barely finish.

I just came back from a very busy, informative tour around Oahu and thoroughly enjoyed it especially with our guide “Cousin Shorts”. He was funny and very knowledgeable about Oahu and its’ history. The scenery was spectacular from its’ lush green foliage, colourful flowers and a spectrum of ocean blues.
Sincerely,

Lovely way to spend a day
Sep 2019
It was lovely to be in a small group of travellers in an air conditioned mini van. Kate our tour leader and bus driver was most informative and could answer any questions we had. We visited lots of places along the way and it's a good way to find out what places you want to re visit on your own.
