  • Excellent tour, very informative and interesting - a fascinating insight into Hawai'ian culture and history. The guide was kind, professional and knowledgeble. he had a great love of Haai'i and wanted to share it. I strongly recommend this tour.

  • This is truly a history and culture tour. My husband and I liked it but our grandson who is 6 may find it boring.
