      Wonderful trip to Oahu.
      , Mar 2020
      We had a wonderful time. Booking the trip was easy. Everyone involved were great. We arrived at the airport and were greeted by George, who explained the whole process, gave us our tickets and took us were we needed to go to catch our flight. When we arrived on Oahu we were met by a young lady who took us to our bus and we were on our way. Ty was our driver and we couldn’t have had a better one. He greeted everyone, remembered our names (quite impressive) and did an excellent job during the tour. Explained where we were, gave a history of what we were seeing and how the day would go when we were off the bus. We couldn’t be happier. Everyone was very professional and friendly. We had a great time because of how great they were. Thank you to everyone for making it a wonderful day!

      Could’ve used better time management on the tour.
      , Dec 2019
      For the money, we were a little disappointed. Spent a lot of time sitting and listening to history, a lot of it was not Hawaiian history. Could’ve seen more of the island if the time was better managed.

      Let me start by saying Viator owns a bit of this one. The description and confirm states hotel pick up. To find out that when we got there that is not the case and a car was over $200 to the airport. Goes down hill from there because the Arizona is still closed a fact not disclosed on the site or on the confirmation call. Next our tour guide called out sick on Oahu and we were merged with a 1/2 day on island giant bus tour with lots of wasted down time. Normally Viator is great but this one is a skip and a big miss. Only redeeming factors are Pearl Harbor was worth it either way and our tour guide Keow wow (spelling?) really worked hard to keep everyone smiling.

      Our guide, Garfield, was amazing! His knowledge of his tour is beyond great...
      , Nov 2018
      Fantastic and highly recommend you request Gar. Everything went as planned, stayed right on schedule. Made us interact with him and the others. One of the best tours we have been on in years. Was very skeptical but that was all squelched as soon as we met him at the airport. Only thing I could recommend would be for the tour company to stock their coaches with water.
      Great sites to see
      , Nov 2018
      One thing you should know prior to this trip is that they ask you to meet very early at the airport, but the flight does not leave for an additional 2 hours. This makes for a long morning if you have to travel to get to the airport in the first place. The tour itself is great. You also do not have any stops for food or planned lunch breaks. From arrival at 6:15am, we didn't get to Waikiki where we could eat until 3pm.

      Good visit to Pearl Harbor and the Missouri. Driver was on time and very knowledgeable. Also enjoyed visit to Waikiki Beach. Flights were scheduled with plenty of time and we were met at airports by agents exactly as described. Would certainly recommend this day trip to Honolulu if visiting Maui.
