  1. Wonderful experience!

    Everything about this tour was truly fantastic. The hotels and their location were in walking distance to everything.More importantly, this trip combined learning about the Hawaiian culture, educational side trips and a whole lot of relaxation and fun. The tour guides were excellent and accomodating - treated us like "ohana"! We only stayed in Hilo and Kona one night each and I think that both were deserving of another night at least. Overall the breakfasts were great with a huge selection of items for all. Dinner on the sunset cruise and luau equally beautiful and with good food! Would go back in a minute.

  2. Just FANTASTIC!!!

    Our trip to Hawaii was just fantastic! The places we visited were wonderful, full of history and science and culture and so many things I didn't know. Our tour guide knew all the great out-of-the-way places to eat, and all the local customs and facts.

  4. Best Experience of my Life!

    This trip was by far one of the best experiences of my life. The tour guide was phenomenal and extremely knowledgeable. Everything about Hawaii was absolutely stunning. Two of my favorite parts were climbing Diamond Head and swimming under the Waimea Valley waterfalls. The food was excellent, the Hawaii residents were so nice, and the hotels were great. I'm so glad I decided to go on this trip with some of my best friends.

  6. Excellent experience

    My daughter went on a trip to Hawaii recently with her school. I am thouroughly impressed with this company and her overall experience. Everything was explained up front and certainly exceeded my expectations. I would send her again in a second using this company.

  7. Wonderful, breath taking and amazing

    This was our first time to go to Hawaii. We had an amazing time! The tour guide was wonderful and knew his stuff! The sunsets was beautiful on the Waikiki beach. The deep emotions you felt when you stepped onto USS Arizona and the Diamond Head, brought to life all the history, we had taught. We had never seen so much shaking going on like to dancers at the Polynesian Cultural Center and the dinner cruise. Over all I would recommend this trip highly! IT WAS A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I took this trip to spend time with my grandson and did not have high expectations, but to my surprise I found myself enjoying the trip. I felt it was a very good experience for myself and my grandson.

  9. A Dazzling Experience

    The Tour Director was wonderful. The trip was a terrific experience because our TD really knew his material and took the time to get to know the students individually.
