We encountered no paranormal activity during this tour and we don't believe it goes anyplace (other than the exterior of the Iolani Palace) where activity has been reported, so if you are a seasoned investigator that travels around doing the tours, you should expect that. However the tour itself and the guide Uncle Joe were quite entertaining and worth the small amount of money for the tour. Basically, it was fun to watch. You also get to see where the original Hawaii Five-O was filmed and right across from the palace is where the current Five-O is being filmed and once you know where they are you can go back on your own in daylight. A caution: 1.) no restrooms within walking distance and it is long tour, if you feel the call of nature you have to tell them and the van driver will take you a distance away to a public 24 hr facility, but you will miss part of the tour in doing so. 2.) no trashcans for legally disposing of dead batteries, etc. that we could find. 3.) Hotel pickup advertised, but it may not be your hotel. We had to walk to another hotel and were not sure that we were at the right place as the van driver was a half hour late do to a function in Waikiki and the area traffic. We called the number only to get a recording as they were closed. However, I left my cell phone number and an operator called back almost immediately, so apparently the number transfers to a private residence and is monitored. She gave my cell phone number to the van driver and then all was explained and OK. It can take a good half hour or more to pick everyone up and get to the Iolani palace where the tour starts, so count that in to your bathroom time.
