Germaine's Luau on Oahu

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was my Mother-in- Laws first trip to Hawaii, She is almost 80. We all had a wonderful time at Germaine's. Our family lived on five of the Islands when I was young and went to luaus in the early and mid 60's. This reminded me of one of those luaus. The presentation of the food and the dancing was awesome. She had a wonderful time and I am glad that we booked it along with the transportation. I would give Germaine's a 12 on a scale of 1 to 10. Ross H.

This was a fun activity for my wife and I. We have been on other ghost tours in such places as Key West, Seattle, Portland, etc. and found the stories to be quite interesting. The next trip to Oahu we are planning to go on the tour with Uncle Joe.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

I have done over 2,000 dives and was looking forward to doing something special. The operator advertised a plane dive and wreck dives. When I asked about doing the plane, I was told that it was a deep dive. I advised them that not only was I a Dive Master but I was also A Dive Rescue Specialist and have done lots of wreck dives also. I was told that they would get back to me before the dive, about three days out. Not only did they not contact me, but when I contacted them back, I was told that they were not going to do the airplane. As for wanting to do a wreck dive, I was not given the option.

I do not smoke and my regulator tasted like an ashtray as well as was hard to breath off until I got down. I was told that the regulator had just been serviced and that there was nothing wrong with it.

The dive instructor was nice and saw to it that those of us with more experience were given more time down, after the new divers had to surface. I appreciated this. The diving was good with turtles and lots of coral to see.

When I got back to the shop, I enquired about the wreck dives and the airplane dive. I was given more excuses why they couldn't do the more experienced dives and went away feeling like they advertised as hype with no intention of doing the type of dives that they advertised! Great for beginners but I wouldn't recommend them to someone who wants more ou8t of a dive. Ross H.

My Review

This was my Mother-in-Laws first trip to Hawaii and I wanted to give her a taste of everything. It was also my Wife and my Anniversary so we were looking forward to a wonderful day. I think we had the Ambassador package, the one with the tour guide, hotel pickup, Luau and the Ha show. I highly recommend this package for the little cost extra, it was well worth it. It was a long day for 79 year old Mother-in-Law, but she enjoyed every minute of it. The Ha show was fantastic! Ross H.

World War II Pearl Harbor Heroes Adventure Tour

Waikiki, Oahu

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What can I say, utterly outstanding. More than once I had a tear in my eye. I noticed that I was not alone in feeling not only the sorrow but the pride! These were things that I always wanted to come back to see. I remember as a child putting my finger in the bullet holes in the walls at Hickam Field and the impression that it left with me. It was great to be picked up by Cousin Shannon and the fine job he did filling in with information between the tours and him having everything lined up so that we did not have to wait. Great job Cousin Shannon! Having been spoiled by the Evergreen Aviation Museum in Oregon, I wished that the Aviation museum had more planes but I'm sure that more is planned. It was great to see that the bullet holes had been left in the hanger for posterity. I would recommend this as my #1 thing to see when you come to Oahu. Ross H.

Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventure Half-Day Tour

Oahu, Hawaii

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The water was nice but cloudy the day we were there. The tram was great for those who have difficulty walking. The little museum was neat. The beach was nice and clean and plenty of lifeguards. I would like to do this again when the water is a bit clearer but otherwise, a great time. Ross H.
