Took our teenagers there and surprisingly they loved it! We took a train ride around the plantation, there was a interactive part that was very educational. We finished off the tour with a dole whip, heavenly!!!!

We booked on this tour after sideing with the positive reviews left of this tour. We we were looking forward to getting an appreciation of the whole island and the highlighted stops on offer (partcularly the macadamia nut farm and the pineapple plantations).

Pros - Our tour driver was really friendly, knowlegeable and engaging. The snorkleing activity was good in the North beaches, really clear water and we managed to see turtles and lots of fish/sea urchins. The Tour was a good way to see parts of the island which we may want to visit again seperately. Tour provided many opportunities to take pictures of the beautiful sceanery Oahu had to offer. Tour group was around 20 people and complementary snacks and ice cold water was provided.

Cons - Meeting point was not completely clear i.e. was the meeting point at the hotel car port/valet area or just on the road etc. No details of the driver, type of vehicle/colour/registration plate to look out for was communicated. Pick-up from hotel was offered on the advert but we were requested to meet at a nearby hotel instead. As previous reviews mentioned, a large proportation of the tour was visiting shops rather than seeing the farms/planations itself. "Tropical Farms" stop was literally just a shop that sells Macadamia nuts, no insight on the origin or visit to the farm or any background to these farms were provided etc. This was a self-guided stop. "Dole Plantation" stop, again the 30 minuite stop was just to the shop, visit is self guided around the shop, there's no visit to the plantation or tour around the planation, not a single pineapple plant/farm insight during the stop. "Kahuku Farms" stop only provides another opportunity to purchase local fruits at high prices, small coconut drink from coconut @$12 per coconut, small bag of sliced passion fruit @$6. ~1/6th of a segment of pineapple @$8. Alot of the 'Shop' visits seemed specifically designed for all of these types of tours around the island, where almost all of the footfall were people on tours and not the types of vendors locals would visit themselves. Simple lunch on this your was $17 to $20 per person extra.

We thought that overall this tour represented fair value if you want to try and see alot of the island in one day. Be prepared to spend additional money in specific visitor orientated shops/vendors as part of this tour.

...we all remember a 'favorite' teacher. Trey,our guide, typifies that teacher!
My wife and I had thought of renting a car, doing a self guided tour. We are so grateful
we chose Pineapple Express!
We learned so much from our guide and saw so much beauty; our hearts are filled !!
The perfectly timed rest stops were well thought out.
Thank you again Pineapple Express and of course Trey!

Visited in 2020 and did a full day tour with a different company and also snorkeling with turtles separately with another company. My daughter saw this advertised and said that you could do both together in one day so we decided to give it a go. Sadly it was lacklustre. The scenic stops for pics were fine but I felt like it was a shopping tour. The Dole Plantation and Coffee Farm were literally stops to quickly buy something no time allocated for any explanations on how things are grown.
Lunch was at the Macadamia nut farm and was expensive and lacklustre. We chose earlier what we wanted and it was phoned ahead but still had to wait 30-45 minutes until it was ready. By this stage it was 3pm.
And finally the swimming with turtles (which was done before lunch) was non existent. Beach was murky, rocky and no turtles or fish.
Regrettably I wish I’d booked our turtle swim with the company we went with in 2020. Unfortunately we couldn’t then fit it in as we did this full day/snorkeling tour the day before leaving to come home.
Our tour guide was a good kid and did his best to make it a pleasant experience. He can only do what he’s instructed by the company.

Enjoyed the snorkelling and visits to the macadamia farm, coffee plantation and dole pineapple farm. Found tour a little rushed as often it was a case of off the bus and 10 minutes later back on. Would prefer a little more time at attractions but not at Dole Pineapple Farm that section was long enough.

Let me start by saying the driver/ your was amazing
, he tried his best to handle the situation and give us a tour. Here is my theory of what happened, for some reason the company didn’t have any tour guides and or drivers and probably called him on his day off to do both drive and vibe is a tour. We were supposed to be picked up at 8am at a location that was later changed by company which was still not bad as it was a 8 minute
Walk. We arrived at Duke Paoa statue at 7:50 to be on time (stay away from this area) driver did not arrived till 8:50am said he was sorry, tour and driver had called out and he would do it all, to bare with him as he was nervous and has never done tour guide. This is why my 2 starts are for driver if I could I would do 5 for him NOT the company. Any way let’s just say my son birthday day tour was not what we expected and PAID $480+ tips for.
Lesson learned.

My daughter spent $1600 for ten of us. We booked ten of us in this tour. Dole Pineapple, and Coffee Plantation stops were only long enough to go in gift shop. Mac nut farm was only to stop for lunch, nothing else. We booked to take grandchildren and young adults snorkeling. When we were dropped off to go snorkeling they only had ten snorkel sets for 24 people on bus. It didn’t matter because when we Walked over to beach and we were promptly told by lifeguard that we couldn’t snorkel on north side in winter. Signs on beach said “no swimming” “dangerous waves” “dangerous coral reef”. Turned and went back to bus but it was gone. Sat on the beach for an hour watching waves waiting for bus to come back. We were told by driver that the office said they would look after us. When we got back to hotel we called office and they said they would look into it. Never heard back despite repeated calls. Totally false advertising as no snorkeling available on this tour. Don’t be fooled as we were. Avoid this tour.

The tour was a full day.
All the locations listed on the tour were visited.
You do have to keep to a tight schedule, sometimes the lines for restrooms were long so there was no time to potter, as you don’t want to hold up the bus.

The snorkeling part is great but rushed if you have a family and need to attend to their rinse/change/ bathroom etc. Tip is to get out of the water earlier than the horn blowing 😊.

The tour guide Mike was a wealth of knowledge and shared it with great humour. It made the tour experience change from good to great. He was experienced and was never rushing you or bothered.
He was also able to be first in line to beat the other buses at most places.

The checkin at the front of Ross was a bit of bedlam. Nobody really knew what to do and then we had lovely Mike find us in the crowd. I think giving each group a letter would be helpful. Eg group A and then drivers put the letter A on their bus window and also hold the sign up with an A at checkin for people to recognise would be really helpful. It would reduce the noise and shouting. 😊😊

Suitable for singles, couples, families, children and elderly and groups.

Honestly, we do not recommend this tour. 1) its more like a bus ride with 5-15 minutes stops at a look out point. 2) the snorkeling was terrible; there were no fish, location was rocky, and water was murky 3) lunch was overpriced and lackluster 4) tour started late 5) narration throughout the tour was not that interesting 6) 30 min at the Dole Plantation was only enough to have dole whip and browse the gift. You don’t actually get to experience Hawaii - its just a driveby experience.
