Our driver was amazing, he showed up promptly, and was very friendly and courteous. Despite rain and one of the planned sites being closed due to rain (causes potentially hazardous conditions) and mechanical issues, he remained calm and upbeat and taught us so much about Hawaii, history, the people, the food. I would highly recommend this tour. They will make sure your experience is one that lasts a lifetime!

We booked our tour online; it was fast and easy! Received a text and reminders about the tour day prior, informing us where to meet and what time. Also because there are so many your buses, it explained which bus to look out for. Upon entering the bus, our guide Deno greeted us and was super friendly. He accommodated those who needed the restroom before the tour started. Was patient with everyone. Very funny guide! He had some good jokes and great stories about the history and tales of the island! We visited many sites and even drive last Pearl Harbor for us to see because it was not included in the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see most of the island in a day.

An absolutely wonderful day with Deano. Great stories, great local knowledge and excellent one-off experiences with heaps of photos to treasure. Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (even when sitting at the roadworks!). Would definitely recommend.
