This was an amazing tour! Shane, our tour guide was great. Very courteous, accommodating, knowledgeable, and genuinely nice guy! Timely pickup, comfortable vehicle, just the right amount of time at each location. A full day of interesting stops, with shopping, fresh local food, a great hike, and snorkeling added. The itinerary was well planned. Fun for all ages within our group. Made the day a memorable experience. Would def recommend this tour to others - Can’t wait for our next one!


Yesterday we did a Circle Island Tour and had such an amazing time. We were in a group of 7 people who quickly became our Ohana for the day. Shane our tour guide was so rich in knowledge in the language, the history, the culture and just all round great “braddah” He quickly made us all feel like family and made sure all of us were all comfortable and kept us all engaged. I’ve always liked Maui over Oahu, but after this tour and learning the history the culture and experiencing the sites, I have a new found appreciation for Oahu. If you’re ever in Oahu check out Adventures in Paradise Oahu and take the Circle Island Tour with Snorkeling & Turtles. Choose Shane as your guide, you will not be disappointed.


Our group of friends also couples had a great time on our tour. Our tour guides Harry and Kurt were awesome. Kurt was very informative and had a great sense of humor. .He added fun to the tour. Please give these a call if you are planning a trip and a tour of the Island. We laughed the whole ride. Thanks again guys.


We had an amazing experience with our tour guide Johnny!! Highly Recommend!! A full day tour with snorkeling really made our day!!


Shane was a very knowledgeable guide and super friendly! He took us snorkeling and we even got to see a swimming sea turtle! Afterwards we visited great local food truck, shaved ice, and macademia nuts. We topped off the trips with views of island that were breathtaking. Would recommend to any friends and family!


Didn't get to enjoy it I got canceled on the day before my tour and still have not got a refund.didnt get a reason as to why it got canceled.


The Island Tour with Shane was the highlight of my trip!!! One of the nicest guys I've ever met. So knowledgeable about Oahu / Hawaii (the area, the history of the island, the plants, the language, the sea life, the places to see, the surfing, etc.) I was with a group of friends who are in their 70's. He made sure everyone was taken care of. Helping us all getting in and out of his van. Always went above and beyond for us all. He calls everyone sister / brother, which made us all feel like a lifelong friend. We started the day driving up to overlook the Southern Point of Oahu. Even saw a rainbow overlooking Waikiki Beach. Went to Nu'uanau Pali Lookout. The views from both locations are breathtaking. Went to a Macadamia Nut Farm for some local treats. Went to local beaches to see sea turtles. Ate lunch a local food trucks then got dessert at the famous Matsumoto Shave Ice. Ended our day at Sharks Cove (no sharks in Sharks Cove), to snorkel. Shane brought bread to feed / attract the fish. All kinds of beautiful fish swam around us. Saw eels, sea urchins, small fish, big fish, crabs and more sea turtles. Then we walked around an area to check out more fish and the reefs. If you are considering a local tour on Oahu, do not hesitate, use Shane. I really can't say enough good things about him!!!


My son, his girlfriend and a couple of their friends were traveling to O'ahu for the first time. I wanted to gift them with a Circle Island Tour to get them acquainted with the island. I by-passed the typical tours offered by the larger companies because I wanted something better than the big tour bus packed with tourists going to the typical tourist spots. I found Adventures In Paradise O'ahu and knew instantly, based on the website and itinerary advertised (they limit the tour to no more than 10 people), that this was the Circle Island tour I wanted my son and his friends to go on. Shane was AWESOME. He was friendly, professional and called me to answer some questions that I had. He promised me he would 'take care of the kids' and he did not disappoint. My son and his friends had a BLAST - Shane personalized the tour and made their first visit to Hawai'i one they will never forget.


We booked this small group tour a week before our visit to Oahu and were extremely grateful we discovered Shane. He is a local, very knowledgeable, and made us feel as if we have been friends for years. We communicated by text/phone to ensure we were prepared for our tour with snorkeling and a bit of hiking. He picked us up promptly and took us a route that avoided frustrating tour traffic while still enjoying the surrounding beauty and key sights with one other couple. The excursion was a great mix of natural beauty, history and activities. We stopped at the Diamondhead lookout, snorkeled on the north shore in a protected bay, visited the macadamia nut farm, enjoyed local food truck fare (freshly caught marlin burrito yum), hiked to a waterfall through rainforest, visited Nu'uanu Pali Lookout, the sacred cliff where around 400 warriors were plunged to their death, and more. Shane was a great storyteller who shared a lot about island history and demonstrated a genuine interest in getting to know his guests. He is an sll around great guy and guide. We would highly recommend booking this tour or one of his other experiences. If we were here longer, we would have a booked a second one. Mahalo, Shane for the memorable experience!


The Circle island tour was a perfect start to our vacation. I would highly recommend everyone to go on this tour. The snorkeling was amazing and the views we saw were unbelievable. This really gave us an opportunity to see the whole island and help plan the rest of our vacation with the recommendations we got from our guide. Shane was a great host and tour guide. He was so great that we even booked a private surf lesson with him and Captain Neil. Which I would also highly recommend. Especially if you are staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, which in our case we were at the Hilton Grand Islander, as the surf lessons were on the resort. Truly was a great experience!
