What people are saying about Pupukea

From the pick up to the drop off this trip was incredible. So informative! It was actually nice to just sit back and enjoy the view and the rude to the many incredible sights. We made out way the dole plantation, hidden gems, the botanical gardens and the wiamea waterfall! So beautiful. Followed by lunch and then a nut farm, lol, a macadamia nut farm. I would do it all over again!

More time at botanical garden will be appreciated. Cut time from the shopping at the macadamia farm. Also, a few minutes break at the Green Turtle shore and other site seeing locations for a decent picture will enhance the tour experience. The guide, Kanama, was really good with the history of native Hawaii. Keep up the good work.

We absolutely loved this tour! Brie was an excellent guide! We all joked this was also the secret foodie tour of Hawaii because we stopped at so many delicious food stops as well. I only wish we had more time at the botanical gardens and the dole plantation is just a gift shop stop- you don’t actually go to the plantation

I enjoyed our trip over the weekend. I love to comeback in Honolulu next year. Our bus driver/ tour guide is very friendly and knowledgeable in the places we’ve visited.

Paul was amazing! Very friendly and informative. I’d definitely recommend to my friends and family :)
