Awesome
Aloha Sunshine Tours was the tour company. We started our day with a pickup from Ka Aloha he told us our driver Dennis would meet us after the Pearl Harbor tour. Dennis was knowledgeable about EVERYTHING HAWAII!! He made our day tour amazing. He even has various phone chargers to boost your dying cell phones. Thanks Viator

Great tour. Picked up on time. Covered a lot of ground in one day. Saw some amazing sights. Really felt like I had a “taste” of Oahu. Tyrone, our guide, did a super job. Definitely worth the money and time.

Oahu PRIME Circle Island Tour! FREE Snorkeling and FREE WHOLE DOLE PINEAPPLE!
I thought this tour was great. Good value for the money. I took advantage of the snorkling which was a plus. Visitors to Oahu need to get out of Waikiki and this is a very informative way to do it. Tyron was very pleasant and informative. Liked the smaller sized van so not so many people loading and unloading at each stop. Pacing of the tour was leisurely; not a hurry up and go go go thing. Shrimp lunch was delicious. Over all made for a very pleasant day and good introduction to the island.

What an Experience

Oahu PRIME Circle Island Tour! FREE Snorkeling and FREE WHOLE DOLE PINEAPPLE!
What an experience! The crater park at Diamond Head, Blow Hole, and the Buddhist temple were great. Our driver "James" made the tour very memorable. He really had the tour down pat and answered all of our questions pretty thoroughly. I was a little disappointed how commercialized the Dole Plantation tour had become. I remember a time when we were taken out to the fields and had a ripe pineapple picked and cut for us to sample; no longer….

We loved this tour and especially the tour guide “Trey” whose extensive plant and Hawaiian history knowledge made the trip one of the best tours we have taken! He was very friendly and courteous to us and made the trip very enjoyable..

Get Lost in the World’s Largest Maze

When Pineapple King James Dole first moved to Hawaii in 1899, he probably never thought his plantation would house the world’s largest maze. Constructed from over 14,000 plants, the site’s garden maze covers three acres (1.2 hectares) and has navigational plaques that help you eventually find your way to the exit.
