    Private Tour Shuttle Service

    by machomikemd Written Apr 11, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you don't want to be part of a big tour group in a big tour bus with the usual rush time due to the large tour group, guam has some private tour companies that cater to a small tour group of 1 to 6 people and the transportation provided will be either an SUV or a minivan with the driver is also the tour guide. Off Course this kind of tour is more expensive than the big group tour but you will have more time to savor the destinations that you plan to visit and the pace is not fast since you are in a small tour group. Plus you can bond with your tourmates the tour is only up to 6 persons in the vehicle.

    Discover Guam is a local tour company that specializes in private small tour groups and this is the company that I booked for a 1 whole day around guam tour and my package cost $ 125 including lunch at Jeff's Pirate Cove and I gave the tour Guide a $ 15 tip since he is very friendly and informative on the local sites.

    according to their website:

    Discover Guam™ is a Local-Owned Tour company with a successful 20 year track record in servicing Guam’s visitors from all points of the world be they independent travelers; small special interest groups; large incentive/conference groups; or military/passenger cruise ships calling into Guam.

    Hotel Airport Shuttles

    by machomikemd Written Apr 11, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most Hotels in Guam Offer Round Trip Shuttle Service to and from the Airport. If you stay at the expensive hotels like the Mariott or Westin or Pacific Islands Club or Outriger Hotels and booked suite rooms, the airport shuttles are free but if you are in a regular or de luxe rooms in the hotels mentioned above or at the other Tumon hotels like fiesta, Holiday, Hotel Nikko, Days Inn and more, the going rate is $ 10 for a single way and $ 20 for a round trip. You can book the shuttle service in advance via the hotels website.

    If you come from a group tour, usually a big shuttle bus provides the round trip airport shuttle service and is included to your package tour costs.

    Public Buses are available at the airport but they do not stop at all the hotels.

    taxis are the most expensive since it will cost $ 15 to 20 for a single trip to and from the airport from your hotel.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    RED GUAHAN BUSES by Lam Lam Tours are available in different kinds, of which the most popular are the Motorized Trolley Buses (Be careful though as the drivers are rough and you can get bruises from frequent sudden stops and turns) and the small air conditioned and bigger air conditioned Buses that are available in any routes.

    A Single ride costs $ 4 for any length of trip so your best bet is to get a 5 day unlimited pass ticket for $ 25 ($ 30 if you want free Wi-Fi use included in the buses or at the Bus stops for 120 hours). You can buy the tickets at any Trolley Bus Drivers and at designated bus counters in several bus stops.

    Bus Services Start at 9:30 am up to 9:30 pm everyday and waiting time is at least 10 minutes for each bus/trolley station. Just be sure to read the front of the buses on what their routes are since there are many routes that are available.

It is named for Antonio Borja Won Pat, the first delegate from Guam to the United States House of Representatives, and is operated by the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, Guam. Actually, the Arrival and Departure Gates are located at the same level and are only separated by a temporary wall and plain plastic barriers. The Airport is the Main Hub of the recently defunct Continental Airlines now merged with United Airlines hence is now a hub of United Airlines.

    Getting around Agana is a breeze with the Lam Lam Trolley system of four color-coded courses that make regularly scheduled runs to most shopping centers, hotels and tourist spots. We bought the 7-day unlimited pass which is a better value at $10 compared to 2 one-day passes at $6 each.

    Cars are the way to go. The Guam Mass Transit is unreliable. The Tour companies also have buses but I think you have to be part of their tour. Most hotels are on the Japanese tour bus route, but can be costly and won't take you off to the beaten trail.

    Rent a car, there are operators that advertise $25 a day for an island bomb (older car).

    The best way to travel to Guam...

    by thechels Updated May 29, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to travel to Guam is to fly into Guam International Airport.
    From the airport you can rent a car this is the best way to get around Guam. Believe me...it's virtually impossible if not literally impossible, to get lost on this very small island. I tried when i first got there...every where i went even when i began to panick thinking i really was lost...led back to the main road...somehow!
    Grayline of Guam also offers some great tour options.
    You can in fact, walk from one end of the island to the other in about 8 hours. The island being only 32 miles long and 8-12 miles wide.

    Aside from flying, a person could for sure sail to Guam, or perhaps a cruise, not sure about the cruiseline theory, but who knows... google it, if your curious enough, I suppose.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's this certain bus service that goes around the island, and they usually pass by tourist spots and hotels. There are, I think, 3 sets of buses that goes around and you usually see one on the streets - but of course, they only stop on bus stops.

    As for the tickets: there are one way tickets, then a whole day pass and a week long pass. So if you're staying in Guam for a long time, the cheapest way to tour around the city is by walking and taking the bus from one place to another. Although the bus doesn't cover all the tourist spot, the most that they could do is to drop you off near the place you wanna go to and you could probably ride a cab.
