Good way to see a lot, but not enough time at Dole, plus we got there as they were closing, so didn't get to see much. There was too much time at Wiamea and the ti6given for swimming would have been better spent at Dole. We weren't taken to Diamond Head as the add promised. Finally, Colins was the BEST guide of all the trips taken.

It was really nice, enjoyed the extra little steps guide made to make it much more memorable. My entire family really enjoyed it. Having the extra waters made a difference and my bags lighter which is awesome. The guide was very informative and energetic very much needed in this line of work. They are well on their way to being top providers in the industry. You can tell they are putting the customers needs and personal experience first. I would highly recommend this tour our guide Reynold and his partner Lawrence are a great team! They go the extra mile to make it that much better.

The pick up at the hotel was excellent. We went to all of the locations listed on the itinerary, that were open. We ordered our lunch ahead of time so it would be ready when we got there. The sights were beautiful. Collins, our driver, was very informative. We enjoyed hearing the history and culture facts during the day. The Waimea Valley and waterfall were awesome; wish we could have spent more time there. We stopped at a macadamia nut farm but only saw the gift shop. We would have liked to see more of the farm and how nuts are grown and processed. The dole plantation was very nice. We did see pineapples on the vine and other plants growing. The store was so bright and had cute items. My husband used the outside bathroom facilities and said they were awful. The tour was what we had expected and enjoyed the day of sighseeing.
