Our tour guide Momi was amazing. She told so many great stories and had a great knowledge of the areas we travelled. If I was to come back to Hawaii and she was the guide I would do another tour. Fumis shrimp shack supplied an amazing meal and one would have been enough for the both of us. It was great that there was the option to preorder the lunch to help keep us out of another line.

Great tour with our guide Kimmi, who told us a lot about the culture and history of Hawaii. Since not everyone was always back at the bus on time, he shortened the waiting time for us with his ukulele. The lunch with various shrimp to choose from was also very tasty. I highly recommend the tour

The first two places we went were really nice which was the NU'UANU PALI LOOKOUT n the Byodo Inn Temple. The other two was a bust, the Waimea Falls didn’t have no waterfall because it was dry due to no rain and the Dole Plantation had overpriced food n souvenirs not much to do or see due to Covid n longggg lines.
