Reviews

Great tour, informed guide, interesting island! We'd definitely do this again.

Oregon Trekkers

Bruce was a fantastic guide. He was really passionate and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Can highly recommend... it especially if you can get Bruce to show you around. We did the half day tour and saw a lot and then spent the rest of the day on the beach. Do this if you want to get the full experience of the island and what it has to offer. more

Megan

We thoroughly enjoyed the 4x4 guided tour. Our guide had lived in Lanai his whole life and told about the history of the island a...nd how it had changed. Having a guide is the best way to travel on the island because he knew special spots to see that one would miss if just renting a 4x4. We highly recommend! more

Bev

Our tour guide was very nice and a good driver, and the vehicle was clean and in good condition. My neice and I were surprised an...d shocked to learn of the history of the people of Lanai'i and how past decisions of a few people greatly impacted the island and how those decisions continue to impact it today. Overall the tour was very enjoyable and I recommend it. more

Colorado Beach Girl

The Maui and Lanai providers were both very well organised which was particularly good as I had only been able to book this at the... last minute. Bruce the guide and driver was knowledgeable and fun to travel with, a very pleasant man. He also gave me lots of good advice about where to go in Lanai City as I had opted to stay there for a while, He also ensured I knew how to get back to the ferry. The ferries were very well run. more

Arcglasgow

We thoroughly enjoyed Bruce, his knowledge of the island was terrific. BTW, you can see Oahu from Molokai on a clear day.

Bob & Grace

My husband and I very much enjoyed the guided tour of Lanai. It's the best way to go. Our guide, Bruce, is very knowledgable ...about the Island and it's history (as he grew up on the island) and told us many, many interesting facts. He is very personable and accommodating. Best tour guide we've ever had. Highly recommend this tour for everyone. more

Kim and Gary

I booked the full day tour based upon the reviews I read and I was not disappointed. Garrett was our guide and he was fantastic. ... My sister and I are very inquisitive and he was able to answer all of our questions and maintained a running commentary about the island and its history. Lanai is very different from the other Hawaiian islands that I've visited (Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the big island) and I'm glad I had the chance to tour Lanai. more

Dina

everything went smoothly, fun day, Bruce our guide made it a great day and he was entertaining and was very knowledgable. saw a lo...t. Wiuld use this tour again. more

E Wong

One driver, two of us, now that's personal service. What's more, the driver/guide grew up in Hawaii, not a malahini, so ...was akamai. more

Dakine96825

Visiting Molokai through a guided tour was an experience that I will never forget! I learned about Molokai's history and was... able to see the gems this island had to offer. An experience I am willing to do again! more

MNH

My husband, my sister and I just got back from Maui yesterday. The highlight of our week-long vacation was our trip to Lanai and ...our tour with Bruce. We have been sharing our wonderful experience with the family. The trip is well worth the price and Bruce gave us lots of information about the island. Lots of fun! more

Warren and Sue

Ferry ride included whale watching going and coming. The tour guide was excellent as a long time resident who knew every corner o...f lanai. Best way to spend a day. This was our first trip to this island. more

Dave & Laurie

We had Garrett as our guide and learned so much about the island. It was a pleasure spending the morning with him. We had lunch at... the Four Seasons resort and the view was amazing. We had the shrimp tacos and the Macai salad. Best lunch ever. more

Laura

It was a great ecperience. The driver was very knowledgeable and showed us all the important sites. It would have been nice if the... shuttle from Lanai City to the dock would have been included. Never the less, it was a beautiful place to visit. more

Jeffery Schmuhl

Gary, our tour guide, was fun and very knowledgeable about the island he grew up on and shared with us. Good time and good compan...y. more

Robert Stenner

Special thanks to Bruce who was a perfect guide for our half day tour on Lanai. Learned and have seen a lot, including shipwreck b...each and garden of gods. Absolute worth doing this trip. Very well organized. Thanks to all and again a special thanks to Bruce! more

Dirk Geuenich

Perfect half day - lots of drive time but able to see many different terrains and vistas - all stops perfectly chosen to show off ...different terrain and history. Drier guide was excellent. more

Naomi

Lanai is not well developed and roads are rugged so this is a good way to tour the island. Our driver and guide Ron knows the isla...nd very well and took us to places that I heard about but won't be able to reach by myself. He also told us the history and current state of the island. We learn and see a lot of the island via this tour. more

C. H. Mok

We had a wonderful tour of Lania with Bruce. He's so knowledgeable about Lanai and we learned quite a bit about the island, i...t's history, beauty, hidden spots and what's happening there. We truly enjoyed the day and appreciated the beauty of the island! more

Pegg Ders

The tour was a great experience. Definitely learned a lot about the island and saw places we would have never found on our own. Th...e only complaint my group had was the political commentary from the tour guide. He started early on referencing those "damn democrats" and a negative reference to ACLU. Being a group of very liberal people, we found it offensive but did not say anything for fear that he would not provide as good of a tour. This would have been a great experience without this extra commentary. more

Bebe Mireles

Knowledgeable tour guide/driver who guided us over 80% of the unpaved red dirt roads and explained the economics of a unique area.... more

Podre71

Bruce was awesome. Swept us up at the marina and asked if there was something in particular we didn't want to miss. We were o...pen to anything so off we went. Nice hidden beaches. Great views. Lots of places we could have never found (or wouldn't dared) if we were touring alone. Bruce was so informative and was just comfortable to be around. The only improvement would have been the 4x4 that was advertised. The Yukon we went around in wasn't the best ride and that's fine but all the advertisements showed a very different vehicle. Thanks Bruce for a great day!!! more

SNelson

Lanai is worth seeing (once) and we are glad we went. We chose this tour because we didn't just want to go snorkling or sit ...on a beach but wanted to see the whole island. We did not want to drive ourselves and wanted some history. Unfortunately, the tour company booked our full day tour along with another couple's half day tour. Our guide Tony is a really nice person, but as he said, they only call him when the other regular guides are all booked. He struggled to make two different tours work together, and we were the losers. We simply drove to Garden of the Gods, had a brief moment outside the GM four wheel drive suburban (in which my wife and I sat in the far rear seats for the time with the other couple, which was pretty uncomfortable), and then drove back and out to Shipwreck beach. Then Tony dropped us off to buy our lunch in Lanai City while he drove the other couple to the ferry to conclude their half day tour. He picked us up at 1:30 in Lanai City, and we drove around about every street which was sociologically interesting but not much about seeing the island. Then we drove to the old pineapple loading harbor, and down to the residential area around the Four Seasons at the beach. We asked to terminate the tour early and took an earlier ferry back. Tony repeated most of his morning stories in the afternoon. He is a nice guy, a safe driver and grew up on the island so had many personal stories, but not a lot of history outside the personal stories. Do not take this tour unless the company confirms that they are not booking two conflicting tours together. Try to get the other guides. more

DAT

We arrived on Lanai. We were usher to a suburban and driven to Lanai City. We assumed we would get the jeep that we would be able ...to drive. We were looking forward to the excitement of driving on the rugged roads. When when got to Lanai city we were met by Bruce's in another Suburban. He proceeded to drive us around the island and we never did get the jeep. Not sure what happened. I asked twice if this was the correct tour and told yes it was. Bruce's was awesomeness but it was not the tour we signed up for. more
