Visiting the Byodo-in temple was breathtaking and the highlight of the trip. Although everything we saw throughout the day was amazing.

Trey was amazing! We learned so much about Oahu, had a fabulous lunch and the stops were great. We would highly recommend this day trip. Byodo-Inn was a special experience as well. Thanks for a memorable trip around Oahu! So much to see and a perfect day!

Our tour guide “Trey” was so knowledgeable about the Hawaiian history and culture. Gained a lot of info about the island. Too bad that the weather did not participate well so we missed the snorkeling part. Trey’s So gentleman and full of wisdom too! We loved his playlist of Hawaiian songs that my husband looked it up and played them in our hotel room! At least 2 of the songs. Just go with this company! You’ll be happy. And oh! Loved it that they gave us the most famous dole pineapple! Aloha! Mahalo! a hui hou kakou!!!

Can we have your playlist of the Hawaiian songs?
Great fun so much to see...
Sally_P, 18-12-2022
Great fun so much to see and enjoy. One of the best Circle Island tours I’ve done. Turtle Bay was really nice
AMAZING Circle Island Tour
lindakelowna2022, 16-12-2022
Totally enjoyed our day with our guide/teacher, Trey Houchin. He customized our tour and stops to suit the guests on the tour that day. He is really knowledgeable about Hawaii. He answered all of our questions and found answers to the ones he didn't know already. He entertained us with history and jokes. Really recommend this Circle Island tour. You get to see a lot of the island's amazing scenery, and learn about Hawaii and the history. Lunch was delicious too. Well done Trey! A great day!
Honeymoon excursion gone RIGHT
zb342, 15-12-2022
Myself and my wife had come to Oahu on our honeymoon. We had Hawaiian Ryan for our tour guide and he without a doubt had shown to us the best spots on the island. He was so inclusive to all and so kind while being incredibly fun. When we come back we will Pick the Pineapple again!!
And you get a free pineapple to take to your home over seas.
Swam with Sea Turtle
eugenel992, 09-01-2023
We stopped at Turtle Bay for hour of snorkeling. I saw a sea turtle and swam and hung out near it. Sea turtles are cool. 10 stops total. Ryan was very friendly and entertaining. Best value tour.
The best guide in Hawaĩ
Jerome_B, 04-01-2023
The guide is so good.. lot of explaination
They love the Island. Very good to discover the entire Island.

Great tour for new or repeat visitors to Oahu!!
Ladonnawa, 04-01-2023
Excellent Oahu circle tour! Tyrone was a great guide and driver. Always felt safe in his van. Interesting stops and commentary along the way. Definitely recommend this tour for those new to the island or those, like us, who have visited many times.
Great tour
allenlT1018KC, 03-01-2023
The tour was flexible enough to take an unexpected opportunity to observe a Monk Seal that had a volunteer who gave a history and commentary of the local seal population.

This tour was the family favorite activity on our vacation.
Great Hawaii Tour
198glorial, 03-01-2023
Trey made this tour. We saw a great deal but his knowledge of the Island, it’s history and it’s plants was exceptional. I liked that he played music associated with what we were seeing. He encouraged questions and had so much knowledge to share
Take This Tour
Holly_D, 04-02-2023
This was a really fun tour with many interesting and beautiful stops along the way. Lunch at Fumis was delicious! Our guide, Tyrone, was informative and funny!!
Hawaiian Ryan
William_M, 03-02-2023
This was a great day. Hawaiian Ryan the excellent host personable made the day more than just driving the island.
Fun and relaxing Oahu tour!
Suji_J, 01-02-2023
The best way to see the island in the shortest amount of time!
My wife and I had a great time on this trip as the tour guide Tyrone did a superb job (he was hilarious too), guiding us and giving us all the fun facts about the locations we come across. We stopped by all the must see places and had some of the best food that we can ask for! All in all the tour was fun, professional and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to tour Oahu!
The best circle island tour
hilathethrilla, 01-02-2023
This tour is 10/10 amazing!! We had such a FUN and relaxing day with Tyrone. A good mix of time allotted for scenic lookouts, swimming, snacks, and shopping!
Gilda_Y, 31-01-2023
Thank you so much to Pineapple EXP & our amazing tour guide Tyrone! My family & I are back in CA now & we are still talking about how amazing our experience are thanks to this very tour. We felt like we traveled the whole Oahu in such a short amount of time without it feeling like it was rushed. The whole tour with Tyrone was super insightful, fun & most of all full of laughter. My family & I really got along with Tyrone. It felt like we've been knowing each other for a while so it made it even better. We felt so comfortable & cared for. As for the tour itself my personal favorite was definitely the Byodo Temple. I do wish the time was cut 50/50 on the location before going to Dole (which was where the Matsumoto shave ice shopping plaza) & Dole since we had 20mins at the shopping plaza w/way more to check out vs. 40mins at Dole's gift shop. Also we had a couple in our group that went on the train at Dole which they weren't supposed to, so the rest of us waited for them for almost an hour. I thought it was so inconsiderate of them but I've learned the hard way that not everyone thinks the same way. So....I think I can speak for other guests that Pineapple EXP should feel empowered to say so from the very beginning. Maybe the couple didn't know it would take them that long, I don't know but there should be rules to go over from the get-go 'cause not everyone is as nice & considerate as the locals =)
