Lonely Planet guidebook:

Oahu in 1 Day: Best Driving is Circle Island Tour

Fodor's guidebook:

Guided tours on Oahu are convenient; you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot or getting admission tickets.

Byodo-in Temple: Fodor’s Choice. Peaceful surroundings set dramatically against the sheer, green cliffs.

Punchbowl Cemetery is an immensely moving place, guaranteed to put a lump in your throat.

Valley of the Temples: A Real Gem; the Byodo-In is the absolute essence of serenity, like taking a mini-trip to Japan.

Activity Comparison

The below table outlines the key differences between our two tours. It's the same Circle Island stops for each, but Pearl Harbor is an additional stop for the second one. If you're interested in Pearl Harbor and want a fuller experience there (~5 hours including exploring Missouri battleship & Bowfin submarine), you could consider doing the standalone Circle Island Tour (Activity 1) on one day and the standalone full Pearl Harbor Tour on a separate day. All tours are with the same highly rated veteran-owned small business run by a Hawaiian family. Please visit the individual pages for all the details, to check availability, and to book.
