It was horrible
VinayS_S

Where to start, we were picked up 20-30 minutes than they said. Then we ended up spending less time at each location. It said 1 hour at Dole Plantation but we only spent 30 minutes there. That was most likely because they made an unofficial stop at some random macadamia nut shop. Please don't book this tour through Roberts Hawaii

Many thanks to our cheerful tour driver for a super day. His native Hawaiian cultural information and cool tips for each site really made our day so much fun. Seeing so many interesting sites in one day was the perfect way to start a full week in Oahu for my family.

Cousin Dave was the best! Very knowledgeable and personable tour guide! This is a great tour especially if it’s your first time to the island. You get a good sample of things and a expanded knowledge of things you might want to revisit later in greater depth. Great to do early in your trip.

The driver tour didn’t pick us up on our pick up stop, we had arrived there on time at our pickup stop but the driver tour didn’t show up! Me and my mother had to take the Lyft to a different hotel in order for us to catch the bus because that’s what the representative told me when i called on phone and she was being stupid. She keeps repeating everything that i had told her. So i decided to just dropped the call on her! Terrible experienced this is for us!

They never picked us up. We the email with our tickets said they were picking us up at 8:10. In fact all pick ups were starting at 7:40. We were at Ross store 4 pick up at 7:12 and no Roberts bus. I asked other tour drivers and they all said big green bus will be coming. At 8:30 I called to check, they were 10-15 min late for Pearl Harbor. I was told by Roberts they were there at 7:10 and left 7:12. Had 7 people so left. They couldn’t have had our name on list. She asked where I got time and I told her my email with ticket. Finally after 10-15 minutes of asking what they would do. They rebooked me for Sat. Then had to call several hours later since I didn’t get email. I was then told they didn’t have my email which I spelled out 4x for her. The girl when I called back had email to me in couple minutes
