      Best Outing!
      We have the best time! We towed paddle boards out to China Walls and snorkeled for a while. Then we swam with a pod of dolphins…it was incredible. Massimo was the best tour guide - highly recommend going on his tour!

      Be careful, don't give out your credit card details!
      I turned to this agency for surfing lessons and excursions on the island. The services were offered directly by the owner Mr. Massimo Galluzzo, an apparently very kind person but unfortunately also a scammer. In fact, despite having paid everything due in cash to Mr. Massimo Galluzzo, incredibly a few days later I found two charges of over 700 dollars on my credit card which the agency stole from me using the credit card details they had given me. requested as a guarantee at the time of booking. Be careful so never give out your credit card details... they are real professionals!

      Outstanding Tour with Max - A Must-Do Experience!
      We had an incredible tour of the island with Max. He expertly tailored the experience to suit our family’s diverse needs, including our 8-month-old. Max’s deep knowledge of the island, combined with his ability to accommodate our fitness levels and infant’s needs, made our trip both enjoyable and memorable. His passion and professionalism truly stand out. Highly recommend Max for an unforgettable tour experience!

      Fantastic Hiking experience
      We hiked up Koko Head with Massimo and it was a great workout! Massimo made sure to go at our pace, and he was able to assist my wife on some tricky steps. He stopped at Leonard’s after for us a try a local treat.

      Awesome Paddleboarding
      Massimo gave us a great paddle board experience. My wife and I have never paddle boarded before, so he made sure to let us go slow and at our own pace while getting the hang of it. I was surprised how quick we picked it up and we’re standing thanks to Massimo!

      Fantastic tour
      Massimo is a fantastic tour guide! It was great riding around and stopping at all the great locations around the island. The weather was rainy, so we weren’t able to snorkel, but Massimo made sure to stop by some cool places to make our tour full and fun.

      Great tour for the whole family
      We loved our private tour with Santiago! We had a somewhat limited schedule due to having to make it back to our cruise ship in time and he helped us make the most of it. We discovered at one of our first beach tops that my son loved the tide pools and then tried to spend as much time as possible in the places we could find more. If you are looking to learn a lot about the island and see as much as possible in a short amount of time, take this tour. Highly recommend!

      First time, start here ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
      This tour was the best way to get the lay of the land during our first full day in Oahu. Massimo was lovely and knowledgeable, patient and also kept us on schedule. Our girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we learned a lot! We are now ready to undertake a few more adventures. The whole family gives ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

      Surf lessons with Massimo
      Massimo thank you so much for our prviate surf lesson. For either of us never doing it before you made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Your encouragement and tips really made the difference. For anyone coming to Waikiki you will not be disappointed. You can feel his love for the surf as he was recognized by locals on the water and gave them tips as well. A true class act, Mahalo brother, enjoy your time in Italy. You made our honeymoon that much better.

      The best tourism experience my wife and I have had. I would highly recommend the Full Circle Tour to anyone.
      Max was our guide and he gave us the experience of a lifetime. He had my wife and I drinking coffee (which neither of us have ever liked) at our very first stop the Green World Coffee Farm in Wahiawa. The next stop was the Dole Pineapple Plantation where we learned there are over 100 variates of pineapples and it takes 18 months to grow one pineapple. We then stopped in Haleiwa at Killer Tacos for a wonderful lunch. We saw Turtle Beach, The Pipeline, Sunset Beach, The North Shore, La’le Pointe where we saw the Eye of the Dragon, and Karelia Bay just to name of few. We drove by Kahana Bay where Pirates of the Carribian with Johnny Depp was filmed. We also got to see Chinaman’s Hat which you walk over to when the tide is out. We drove by the beautiful lush mountains which were so green and beautiful you were just in awe. (Can not wait to come back on another visit for Max to show us the beautiful waterfalls in the mountains). We also made a stop in Kaneohe for more coffee tasting and macadamia nut tasting at Tropical Farms. This place was fantastic. Did not leave empty handed. This experience was far greater than I ever dreamed it could be and this company offers so many other tours that my wife and I will definitely plan another trip to the Island to experience.

      Great day in Oahu with Massimo.
      We were finishing up a 10 day stay in Hawaii, having traveled to 4 different islands on the NCL Pride of America. Our final day was back in Oahu on Waikiki Beach. We loved it there but wanted to see the rest of Oahu, especially the North Shore and the Eastern side of the island. We had a private tour with Massimo who was amazing!! We hit it off right away, finding out he was Sicilian which is where we will be honeymooning next April. Massimo was very accommodating, allowing us to spend the perfect amount of time at the places we wanted to see most. Just a heads up, if you want to see massive waves, go in the Winter! It didn’t really matter to us, the beaches on the North Shore were beautiful. The ride back to Waikiki on the East side reminded us more of Kauai, very green, mountainous and lush. We did a final stop at the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. It was such a beautiful setting, a real hidden treasure. Thanks Massimo for a great day and we hope to do another tour with you again soon 😁.

    Aloha! I had an amazing experience with MSH tour to visit Pearl Harbor. The tour was really well organized. Everything ran so smoothly. Despite the crowd we did not have to wait a second in line. Massimo took the tickets for all of us at the time we suggested and gave us all the instructions for the tour. We were leaving from Hawaii that same day and we were concerned that we would not have enough time to see everything. There were lots of people waiting in line but, thanks to Massimo's help and experience, we were just able to do all the attractions within our limited time.

    We only had one day to see some highlights of Oahu. We customized a tour for 6 of us with private transposition. Nicolle picked us up at the cruise ship and took us to Pearl Harbor. We were there 2-1/2 hours and then Nicole picked us up as we were on to our next adventure. She took us on a tour of the North Shore from a local's perspective. We had lunch at Killer Taco's and it was very good. We had a great day! We arrived back at the cruise port after dark. It was a full day.

    I was lucky to find this tour that started at 10am as we had limited time on our trip so did this tour the same day we flew in at 6am. Phil was flexible as to what we could do but the tour only included the boat trip to the US Arizona and a look around the museum which we paid for and also the submarine which we paid for. As it turned out we were keen to see the US Missouri warship as well so due to time limits Phil left and we made our own way there and afterwards we caught a bus back to Waikiki which only cost about$3 although was a slow trip taking about 2 hours. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pearl harbour and were grateful for Phil’s advice as it can be a bit confusing as to how it all works. Cheers for that and good luck with your future tours.

    We started off the day meeting Nicholle, our guide outside of the boat after an early lunch and were straight into her van, which was nice – clean and comfortable. Nicholle gave us some facts about Hawaii as we navigated to the Memorial and through in little bits about Hawaii – we have an interest in living here at some point and her thoughts and observations were helpful.

    She was knowledgeable and very sweet, optimistic person – easy to talk and learn with. We were the only folks in the group that day so it was like a private tour, which made for a truly excellent day.

    The memorial was solemn , as one might expect, informative and touching. I did notice that there were some broken video monitors – not sure if that points to lack of funding from the current administration, but they needed some attention.

    We went through the exhibits and then onto the launch which took us around the harbor and to the Arizona memorial. We were unable to go to the memorial itself, as the dock had been damaged and was under repair, but got close and saw the ship underwater and the monuments to the other ships that were damaged and sunk that day.

    Afterwords, Nicholle picked us up and drove us up to Punchbowl National Cemetery, which I had seen before too, however, because it was just our small group, we were able to get out and visit the grounds. A lovely place and and explanation of many of the major battles in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

    Nicholle could have returned us to our ship, however we were looking to take a quick stop at Walmart, so she kindly dropped us off downtown, a couple of miles from the ship and we took an Uber back.

    The tour and her kind attention made the day and we would gladly spend more time with her – I highly recommend it.
