We had the most amazing trip with Paulini. She was one of the best tour guides we have had,anywhere in the world.
Her delivery of the information and history of the island was fascinating.

Paulini Heavenly Flower has a great love and passion for her country and for all people.

We have already recommended your company and in particular Paulini to our friends when they visit Oahu.

Thank you Paulini for making our first visit to Oahu so memorable. Good luck to you Best wishes Stuart and Robyn Anderson

There was a diverse group of folks in our tour and we all enjoyed the vast amount of knowledge that our guide, Gonzo passed along to us during our full day of circling the island of O'ahu. Well worth the price of admission.

What an unbelievable experience. we enjoyed the whole tour. We appreciated the rich history lesson at Purl Harbor to all the beautiful sights around the North Shore. The tour guide was very informative and provided us with many stops along the way. It was a day well spent.

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Cousin George, as he called himself, was our tour guide. He was fantastic. I appreciated that he talked slowly and loudly so we could understand him since he has a pretty strong accent. Our group had about 11 people total. This tour was one of the highlights of our week in Honolulu. The time at Pearl Harbor was just enough to see the USS Arizona Memorial and take a short walk through the grounds. So if you want extensive time there and want to go in the submarines and do the self-guided tour by earphones, you may want to do the individual Pearl Harbor tour. But for us, it was enough. Same thing with the Dole Plantation, it was a quick stop but we had time to partake of the famous Dole Whip.
The best part though is seeing all the beautiful beaches that Oahu has to offer! So many photo opps, it is amazing.
The stop for lunch was at a golf course. The food was okay, it was good enough and just enough to get you through the rest of the trip. The thing I did not expect was the lunch was included in the tour so we only had to tip the server. You could choose from 5 menu items and it came with a drink and dessert. The impression I get is each tour guide goes chooses their lunch stop so you may end up somewhere else.
The only thing we did not get to do was the Halona Blowhole b/c it is closed on Tuesdays. But the description of this tour was very accurate.
If you want to see the different beaches with stops at Dole and Pearl Harbor this is the tour for you.

I loved the tour. Especially Pearl Harbor. We even met a Pearl Harbor survivor while there. The rest of the tour was good too. I could have done without some of the touristy stops but I guess that's the best way to have bathroom breaks for the tour.
