My mother and I recently took the Private Circle Island Sunset Tour with John (Datesnap Tours), and it exceeded our expectations.

John is a knowledgeable tour guide with the perfect blend of cultural, historical, botanical, and birding knowledge. His tour was filled with interesting information and included some of the best views on Oahu. In addition to the private tour, John also took pictures of us with my phone as well as taking professional photos with his camera; he sent the digital images a few days after the tour. John is skilled in selecting the best location for the photos as well as offering suggestions for improving the shot.

We had lunch at Giovanni’s Shrimp truck—freshwater garlic shrimp scampi is the iconic meal, but the garlic hotdogs are surprisingly delicious as well!

This tour is ideal if you are traveling solo, a couple, or small family and want to tour the island with a private tour guide/photographer and get plenty of group photos to commemorate your vacation. Highly recommended!

A wonderful experience from start to finish. John was a great travel companion for the day, and provided a ton of great information about the island as we traveled around. He knows his stuff!

I was spoiled by the fact that I had booked a private tour, so it was just me and John for the entire time. I particularly enjoyed the fact that when we would arrive at a location, he would talk me through what I was about to see, where things were located, etc., but would then largely step back and let me do what I wanted. If I needed more information or guidance he was there, but otherwise he was happy to let me do what I wanted, which was very refreshing and exactly what I was looking for.

I'd recommend booking with Datesnap to anyone, and the Circle Island Sunset Tour in particular to those looking for a great overview of Oahu. It was a long day, but allowed me to see a ton of locations I might have otherwise missed, and learn an amazing amount about the island at the same time. Mahalo John!

My husband & I appreciate John, our tour guide, SO Much! He was extremely knowledgeable, organized & efficient in helping us explore the island. I knew he didn't miss anything, in fact showed us more too see on the island that our own internet research couldn't cover. We were also traveling with a 12 month old so it was extremely family friendly (but again it was just my family, not a large group). I though I'd miss out on a good Hawaii experience with a child, but i was very happy to have come across this tour and would HIGHLY recommend it - after this tour you can feel confident in roaming around in your own car! Oh, and the added photo shoot - what a life saver, sit back and enjoy the island the pictures will fall into place whether you take them with your phone or at the locations selected by your guide (you won't regret it)

John was an excellent tour guide on our private tour of the island. He was very prompt on picking us up at the resort. He shared a wealth of information about the history of the island as well as knowing about the various plants and birds on the island. We spent the entire day sightseeing and discovering many wonderful places around the island. We stopped at Dole pineapple, a fresh fruit market, ate fresh Shrimp Scampi from the famous "Giovanni's Food Truck, sampled macadamia nuts at the farm, and saw many wonderful beaches. The tour ended at a very special place to see a gorgeous sunset to conclude the tour.

Our tour took place on Jan 30th and it was outstanding. John was a great tour guide with many interesting anecdotes that made it that much more interesting. He was very flexible while still managing to keep us on schedule so we could see everything.
In addition to showing us the best photo spots, he took many pictures as well, which were e-mailed to us.

All in all, this was a very good, worthwhile tour that I would highly recommend.

The best tour I have ever joined in years. John is very knowlegde and fun to be with. Dispute tje nad weather and close out of attraction due to the coronavirus, John still managed to take us to many, many awesome places with picture perfect sight. Being a professional photography himself would help you the photos at the best possible angle. I would have given him a perfect 10 score. The tour is not the cheapest but it is the best money you are going to spend. It covered most of the best places in one single day and still allow enough time for photos at every stop. And it is a combination of a photo tour, sight seeing, and movie scenes tour all in one. He also used his professional camera to take photos for you. Highly recommended tour for every visitor to Honolulu. If you have difficulty picking one. This is the one. Not need to think twice.

This was a fantastic small group tour around the island of Oahu.
John, our guide & owner of this company was very personable. He picked us up from a rental apartment in Waikiki. He took us along with another group of 3 people to breathtaking popular as well as off the beat & path places around the island & pointed out which movies were filmed there along as the history & culture of the island. He took lots of pictures of my husband & I with our phone cameras & gave us pointers on best angles & ways to capture the scenery. John also brought his camera out & did a few photo shoot sessions of us which turned out great & then sent them to us without an additional cost.
We went to the well known Giovannis shrimp truck for lunch with lots of options to get food from other food trucks. I got a chance to swim in the waterfalls at the beautiful gardens which was amazing.
Highlights also include the gorgeous secluded white sand beach, blow holes from the lava tubes the magnificent sunset at turtle beach.
John also offered us lots of suggestions on places to eat in Waikiki & further explore for the remainder of our vacation. This tour was well worth it & one hundred times better then going on a large tour bus to see the sights of the island! Thank you!
