The Polynesian Cultural Center is absolutely beautiful. They showcase all of the different islands of Polynesia in separate “lands” that you can visit. Each one is full of beautiful dancers and ambassadors that can answer any questions about their “island.” In each area, you visit native homes and villages, and they have different presentations, including cooking, firedancing, temporary tattoos, and so much more. After a fun afternoon visiting all of the islands of Polynesia, they have an amazing Luau show with a fantastic Hawaiian buffet dinner. After dinner, they have the theatrical production “Ha – Breath of Life” which was simply outstanding. It showcases a young child growing up and becoming an adult in the Polynesian World. Everything about it, from the dancers to the sets to the costumes and music are fantastic. Polynesian Cultural Center is definitely a must-see for any visitor to Oahu.
The Polynesian Cultural Center was fantastic. We booked the Luau Buffett and the Ha Breath of Life Show. Both were amazing. Excellent value for money.
We had great time at the Cultures. Cousin Tu was great and funny. I would recommend to attend this tour in Waikiki.
The best tour we did. The service during the dinner and show was great. The bigger performance show was very well done. The bus driver gave us tips on getting around the park to see all, but there was too much to do and not enough time. I highly recommend this tour.
GO! Just go! The Ali'i package is more than enough, only go for the ambassadors if you have money to burn, but if you don't get the transportation as part of the package, make sure that you get there right at the opening of the islands or you will not have time to take everything in.
This was a VERY pricey tour, but well worth the money. The Cultural Center is amazing. The shows were extremely well done. The "Ha: Breath of Life " was fabulous! Our driver Pete shuttled us to the Cultural Center and back very efficiently.
I'd recommend this tour to everyone!
Wonderful experience--friendly and helpful hosts, Our tour guide (Jose) was great fun and very informative. Luau and show were amazing. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!
This was a wonerful insight into polynesian culture and is most highly recommendable.

We bought this tour as a gift and they absolutely loved it. Service was wonderful and everything ran smoothly from the hotel pick up to the tour guides knowledge. would highly recommend, they said it made their trip
One of the best tours of Hawaii. We enjoyed walking and visiting various island villages inside the cultural center. We liked the whole atmosphere, friendliness of the artists, staff etc. Dinner was good and the HA show was wonderful. Overall a very good experience.
Initially I was quite worried because as a seasoned traveller I checked the day before to be certain that the reservation for the Cultural Center and the transportation to the the venue was as well. There was a problem that needed correction. I was not listed for transportation. So I called your representative who immediately directed me to an authority to confirm that I was not listed. So having your representative give me his direct number I called him back and in a minute or two while on hold he corrected it and the next day I was on the bus. That to me is superb service. Thank you
Very enjoyable day. Learned a lot about the many Polynesian islands. great food
Loved the Polynesian Cultural Ctr - just needed more time to see it all.
I almost bailed on this tour so glad I didn't. It was a very special day.

Fascinating living details of the whole of Polynesia on one site in one afternoon
We chose the Ambassador Luau and Transport. We were very happy with our experience. The guided tour, the food and entertainment were wonderful. The entertainment was exceptional. Our seats at the show were very good.
Definitely the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Not even the rain from Hurricane Ana could put a damper on this show. Excellent meal at the luau and top rate entertainment at the show.
Our bus driver was great and very informative, providing lots of information of the areas we were travelling through and gave us tips when when we arrived to ensure we saw all the areas presentations. The Cultral Centre presentations for each area were all very professional, they all engaged the audience and were very entertaining. It not only educated us about each of their regions but gave demonstrations on how to open a coconut, hula dancing lessons, singing and their lanuguage. The highlight was the Polynesian dinner followed by the amazing show, of energtic dancers and singers, lots of colourful costumes and fire dances.
This tour was simply amazing and a must! Pick up was a breeze from the hotel.
Although the shuttle bus we got picked up on was really old and had no air conditioning at all, our driver was pretty awesome. We got rained out but our tour guide was ready with ponchos for everyone! The luau was great as always and the night show of Ka was amazing!
