What people are saying about Waimānalo

The guide was the best part about the trip. “Cousin” Coco was very informative and knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, added a few personal details, was patient with questions and timing, explained everything thoroughly and in detail, but was not boring at all, and he was a very good driver - slowing down to point out and tell us about points that we’re not stops for us that we may want to revisit on our own like certain beaches, food truck stops, and where certain famous people lived. Some of the chosen stops were touristy, but places that one would want to see and know about anyway. When you think about how many hours that we were out and how many miles we covered, you’d think it was too much, but it was perfectly planned and left me wanting for another tour. I’ll definitely look for another tour with Robert’s again. I truly enjoyed it.

Very nice and educational…. Cousin Dave our tour guide made it more fun and exciting… he is very kind and considerate becoz I was with my husband who is confined in power wheelchair….

very nice tour of the island the driver / tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable . i wish we could spend more time in each place .

If you are short on time this is a good way to get a broad overview of Oahu in one day.
