Oliver was a great host! The tour really went above and beyond our expectations as Oliver showed us around all the fun parts of the island while skipping all the fluff. The trip essentially lasted an entire day, and was a really good introduction to Oahu. I highly recommend this tour!

I loved the complete tour because it lets you see different parts of the island. The tour guide, Oliver, was great and very attentive. It was a small group and he knew the way around the island. Totally worth it!

What an Experience

Breathtaking 8-Hour Circle Island Tour Home of FREE 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….

Tyrone was our tour guide and did an excellent job. He was funny and took care of us. Brought water for the group and ordered food ahead of time so we didn’t have to be in-line. I would recommend this tour.

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.
